Be A Nose!

Art Spiegelman's Be A Nose! is about to hit bookshelves and to announce its release McSweeney's Quarterly asked me to put together a trailer. And, after much hard work, it has arrived, making its debut on the internet!

(To view this at its best, click play. Then click the arrow at the bottom right of the You Tube video, and select HD. Next, be sure to start the video over at the beginning, and pause it while it loads--You Tube's HD tends to skip and stutter a little if you don't do those two things.)

I would be remiss if I did not offer a huge thanks to Aaron Hawkins, Jason Shwartz, Hanna Bliss, and Brian Ellis, the four brilliant animators who helped out on this project. I would still be roughing the animation out...or storyboarding...if not for your efforts.

I posted a tiny version of all the boards in an earlier post, but intentionally made them a little hard to see (I really just posted them to prove that, though I hadn't blogged in awhile, I was working) as the project was not yet complete. Now that it is, I thought I would post one of my favorite sections from the Be A Nose trailer.
