Failure to launch.

Anyone who's done a little freelance is used to having jobs fizzle up and dissapear. It happens for a number of reasons. An agreement for money/content cannot be reached, artistic differences between the parties and sometimes for mysterious unknown reasons the job will simply vanis *poof* like Kaiser Soze.

I'm used to it, I don't get bent out of shape or upset. The only reason I'm bringing this up is because a job which seemed like it would be honestly FUN to work on pulled the vanishing act. And I'm a little sad that I wont get to follow through with all the idea's that bubbled up while planning the project.

Anyway, here's a page of sketches I did while brainstorming.

Some more designs.

There's been a fairly large change in plans for me, and it's going to affect whats happening with Upon Animation.

I'm currently teaching animation at Algonquin College here in Ottawa, It's a part time gig which leave me plenty of time to work on something else. However it looks like that something else is going to be more of a buisnessy thing and less of a online animated series thing.

So I'm going to keep developing, it might just be a longer development cycle than a year. I've also been bandying around the Idea of doing an online comic instead (Much more managable.)

Point being, plans have changed, but I don't intend to stop creating.
