WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.
Last week I officially graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a BA (Hons) in Animation Art. I was awarded the McNally Award for 2013 as top student, which meant delivering a speech in front of 800 people. In a college first I threw together this animatic to sum up my experience in the animation course ... and to take the pressure off me. You can watch it here.
The music was a gift from the voice actors of my film, and it kept me going throughout the final stretch whenever stress threatened to get the better of me. I am happy to finally have the opportunity to share it with you all. Thank you everyone for your overwhelming support for the past few years, for the gifts and the constructive comments, and for making the struggle feel that much more worthwhile. Consider this a "Thank You" from me to you, from the bottom of my heart. Keep on trucking, keep on drawing, and to the rest of you in the same boat, struggling with college or school life: Keep on fighting the good fight! Because they'll make a grad out of you!

Scarier than undertaker is the moody reviewer.
Know that you draw beauty, you must proudly show it.
Now add a lama badge just for luck, and even you can't blow it! (OK, enough of Disney songs.)
I like the conquistador guy, I'm sure he will be a great villain! And the clown-turned-pirate lady is cool as well.
LOL, stumbled on your profile thanks to a WOW fanart, staying thanks to your animation project. :3
Congratulations my friend, you've done well!
Awesome comic. I'm ion a pre animation program, and it already feels like this. Guess it doesn't get any easier. :\
This is absolutely brilliant, and I listened to the video while re-writing notes for a speech in my social studies class. Great motivational music! I'll keep a look-out for more antics from Louis & Co. though I assume I have some of your gallery in my favorites already.
