The Merely Meerkat Diaries: Chapter 2

January 20th, 2017

I finally got my new drawing tablet and I am very rusty drawing on it. Hell, I am very rusty drawing in general. But in only two days I have released a teaser video and image based on Joe Haidar’s versions of my drawings. I am still trying to figure out what the hell I am doing. This project is going to be a huge challenge. I wish I had more people cheerleading me along the way. But this is what I have to work with.

It is possible that instead of doing one big episode I will do a few mini episodes until I get used to drawing and animating again.

Next I will be trying to draw and redraw the character angles. Tough, tough stuff. More updates will be coming your way.

The Merely Meerkat Diaries: Chapter 1

January 11th, 2017

Merely Meerkats is returning this year with a revamped new style and the same old toilet humor. I am going to keep everyone updated in these diaries as I go along because it is going to take months to finish. It will be a labor of love because I really want to see these characters return and the story is dear to my heart. I will post the episode synopsis in a future diary. Rest assured it will be a different kind of feel from a FARToons production.

Former Disney animator Joe Haidar is helping me along the way by one-upping my character designs into what I actually want them to look like. I thank him for taking the time to critique my crappy drawings. I am trying to make this cartoon better than any I’ve ever done before. I need all the help I can get.

I am currently accepting donations for this project, with rewards like DVDs and producer credits. Anyone who pitches in will be considered a member of the Merely Meerkats team. I would really appreciate the support.

Check back soon for another diary on Merely Meerkats!
