TWEAKS (Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear)




Photobucket



So I made this cover of the song Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear about a year ago. I had this idea to upload it with a bunch of cool art but I never got around to doing it until now! I hope you like it!

To make this, I listened to the song over and over and transcribed each note and drum beat into Milkytracker. It's not perfect but I think it's pretty close to the original!

This is what a few measures of the song looks like in Milkytracker:

Trackpad Run + Tumblr??

Oh hey! I updated the header with that jumping fox buddy from my trackpad film. Also here's a run cycle that I forgot to put in the film.


Also I made a tumblr?? I'm very confused by it but it's exciting?? Check it out if you like that kind of stuff! http://jeffliujeffliu.tumblr.com/

Waltz-y Things

Two instrumental song things! Both with 3/4 time signatures for some reason!

This first one's a milkytracker chiptune thing. I actually made it in 2009. It's about a cave full of shiny and scary things.


This song is based on a prompt that was given to me. It is intended to represent the story of a straight man who falls in love with a woman, finds out that she is actually a man, and then learns to accept the relationship for the beautiful thing that it is.

This is the way I've looked


just about every day of my life since I was a teenager.

Rolling up the cuff of my pants is a new thing though. Thanks Erica for showing me the way.

Doodool



Sometimes I start drawing without knowing what it is that I'm drawing.

Heads

Character design is really puzzling to me. I'm still trying to figure out how to stylize shapes and proportions in ways that make sense. Here's some doodlethings.

Beardoguy

I haven't really drawn in a while since I've been animating in AE at work so I decided to doodle a bit. This guy lives somewhere cold and sings songs about how he feels cold and sad and alone but inevitably at the ends of his songs he decides it's not that bad really. Things could be worse. At least he has a comfy sweater.

Dancin' Feet

Here's a series of stills from some animation I worked on at the studio! It's for an ebook that got released pretty recently. I worked on it with the incredible Romney Caswell who did backgrounds!












And the finished thing:

Let Their Howling Hearts Be Heard

Here's some animated loops I made for my friend Michael's live action film!! These are drawn versions of characters in the film used in an opening sequence. Lots of lots of fun.
