Welcome to Kelleytoons!

Now that more and more folks are viewing our videos on Vimeo (see below) I thought it was time to setup a special site dedicated just to animation. Specifically, it will be my animation, but more generally I'm going to try and post tips and tricks that should be helpful for more beginning animators (those with actual talent and/or experience will be able to ignore anything I write here :>).

I'm setting this up as a blog rather than an addition to our main web site, Kelleytown, for a number of reasons. First and foremost is the ease of updatability. Revisiting a web page is only purposeful if the information changes, and many (most?) sites eventually end up with stagnant content not worth bookmarking for the most part.

Blogging makes that easier, but it's not without its drawbacks, chief among them is the lack of easily cataloging any collected information. So, if we do end up with worthwhile stuff here and we get feedback from others they would want it, we'll take that information and transfer it to a format more easily accessible. For now, if any of this interests you at all just drop by from time to time to see what things have changed.

Here's the pilot episode of our show which kind of convinced us it would be feasible to do something like this (don't worry -- we get much better):
