Even though I am hurriedly finalizing my drawings for the soon to be finished "Cheatin'" I also wanted to do a short to qualify for Annecy's animation festival.
Having done a documentary on the legendary Oregon poet, Walt Curtis (Walt Curtis, Peckerneck Poet" 1998) I loved the poem he wrote called "The Time The Drunk Came To Town And Got Drunker Than A Skunk Or So He Thought." I believed it would be great for an animated short. I needed to shorten the title for simplicity's sake. So now the short film is called "Drunker Than A Skunk"
Over the next few months I'll be displaying some of the cool ballpoint pen art.
It's a lot more weird and stylized than my usual style.
As a kid I loved drawing cowboys so this film is basically me having fun drawing the sordid lives of western folk.
I'd love to hear your comments on the art!
