Weasel wardrobe

I've been thinking too much (and too hard) lately. At one point yesterday, I had thought of maybe changing Weas' hoodie to just a hat with ears on it, to look less Mario-like. It was bugging me, so I ended up drawing this late last night to see what it might look like. A change like this may not be made at this point...but I am considering it. No matter what though, people are always going to see the obvious parallels to Mario in Geoweasel, so it doesn't really make much of a difference. I mean...everyone thinks Nar is supposed to be one of the Mario brothers anyway. Not that I can't see why.

Ah, gimmicks

Go here to visit the official Geoweasel Myspace and add them!

Ah, another cheap gimmick to distract people from the fact that I haven't made a cartoon in forever. Paul and I talked a while back about making myspaces for each of the four Weasels...but that would be annoying and hard to maintain. And for some reason this weekend, I felt like making one for the cartoon itself. And I sure...did.
Jim's got a new outfit. I can't decide if that should be an actual tie, or a shirt with a tie drawn on it. Or maybe a newspaper tie...that could work. And apparently, Nar has a left-handed keytar. Maybe one for each hand? I dunno.

It pays to play

So, the music commission I have been talking about for some time now finally shows its face, and it is actually one of the staples in this week's Meth Minute 39 cartoon! Dan contacted me a while back when the idea was first brought up after hearing some samples of my 8-bit songs. Since he had several different ideas in the beginning of how the episode was going to pan out, he and I went back and forth via phone and email just throwing ideas out there. Ben Ross did a great job with the 8-bit animation to go along with the music and it came out looking pretty sweet. I kinda wish those were actual games; some of them look pretty fun, heheh. So watch the episode here, and be sure to watch next week for Meth Minute animations from myself and other animators over at Channel Frederator!

What is it with keytars?

Unfortunately, I didn't complete my contest entry for The Meth Minute 39 in full, so after talking to Dan, I kinda fiddled around with it and cut it off earlier than it was supposed to be. You can check it out in next week's episode. Alternatively, here's a version with unfinished animation, but the full audio track.
