    The first year of the January Animation Month, I created some animated logos for the January Animation Month as part of the monthly challenge. I decided to do it again this year, as I needed to catch up on my animations.

    I always liked animations that looked like cursive writing being written, so I created an animated logo in that style.

    Like my last animation, this animation takes inspiration from the first year of the January Animation Month. This time in the form of the animation series that started in "Snow", and always was good for a quick inspiration if I was running short of ideas. :)

    With this I'm now at double the amount of animations I made for last year's JAM. :) I'm still a little short on ideas, so this animation is another one in the series that began in "Snow".

    You didn't actually expect me to get through the month without creating a comic based on the series that started in "Running Out of Ideas", did you? This is one series that I did for every JAM, so it's only fitting that I continue it this year. :)

    Remember in the comments of my first JAM animation of this year where I said I had weirder dreams than the one I animated? This is one of them. It's definitely weirder than playing frisbee with a dragon, but it's still not the weirdest. :)

    Here's another in the series started with "Snow". :) I'm still one short of an animation a day (since I started on the second), so hopefully I can catch up today since I did this one early, in the wee hours of the morning, before bed.

    So I didn't manage to catch up, but it's only one animation so I'm not worried. For my newest animation, here's a new animation based on another of my animation series from the first JAM. :)

    It’s my 13th animation of January Animation Month ’13. :D

    Whenever I’m running low on ideas, I can always think of something with my series from the first JAM. So, here’s another one. :)

    I finally had an inspiration for something that wasn't from a previous animation series.

    Here's another animation in the series that started in "Snow". The "Snow" man's predicament in this one was suggested by my mom. :)

    Here's my 20th JAM animation, again suggested by my mom since I was having a creative block.

    And the suggestions by my mom keep coming. :) I'm glad she's helping this year, because my creative rut is quite deep. ;)

    Another animation from a suggestion by my mom. It was originally a flying pig, and then I thought it would be more interesting as an angel pig. :)

    Another idea from my mom, and a suitably weird one this time, Blinkin' Lincoln. :)

    Hey, that's a great suggestion! Maybe I should... nah, I'll leave the horror to your imagination. :p

    Here’s my latest animation idea. Only two left! Woo!

    The penultimate animation is another idea based on the TV bumpers from the first JAM. :)

    I might join this but janurary is usually full for me. I think August may be a good month.

    Definitely. The whole point of the project is to get animations done, and let you practice and improve your art.

    So, if you'd rather do it in a Summer Jam (Warpspeed's right AAM doesn't work as well ;)), then go for it. :)

    Just call it the Summer Animation Month. Problem solved!

    If we have SAM, then I'd want MAX, too. Hmmm, Month of Animation eXtravagance? Nah, there's gotta be something better than that.

    Well, it's that time of year again. :) I now have enough bandwidth on my website to host a forum, so I was going to host JAM exclusively there this year. But I owe the success of the event to this forum, so it wouldn't feel right not to have it here too. So, if you want to join in this year, you can join in on the fun this year in this forum, at my website's forum, or at the Double Fine forums. Triple the choices, triple the fun!

    So, since I decided to join in on the One Game a Month challenge this year, my animations this year will be related to the game(s) I'm making. Here's the first one, for the main character in the opening credits of my first game, an adventure game created for ScummGen based on an obscure meme from The International House of Mojo:

  • Thanks for pointing that out to me.

    It turns out that if my site has less than 5 visitors in a month, they deactivate it. That seems like a pretty awful thing to do when your website is a paid account, rather than one of their free ones. :/

    I just re-activated it, so hopefully it should show up fine again.

  • I also can access your site now but not the forum area. They must have suspended your database, too. That's a really obnoxious thing for them to do when you're paying for an account.

    If you were trying to link an image in your earlier post in the forum, it didn't show up for the rest of us.
