Hadgel’s Here!

One thing’s for sure, when I put my mind to something that’s extremely ridiculous I usually carry through with it; and this is a perfect example. While wandering through Target one day way over a year or so ago, I came across a computer program that caught my eye… a computer animation program. I don’t know why, but when I saw the product I immediately thought I must have it so I can create cartoons! I guess the idea had been laying dormant in my subconscious since I was a kid or something, when I doodled up a storm on any paper I could find.

Like I said, that was more than a year ago. I let the program sit in the box for about a month, then decided to finally install it on my computer. Once I got it set up I realized just how complicated of a task that making a cartoon would be, so my enthusiasm faded even further. But for some reason, the idea of creating my own animated short just stuck with me. So I came up with an idea that I thought wouldn’t be too complicated, and of course I wrong about that as well! I kept at it though. I read and watched tutorials…. and I came up with Hadgel.

Hadgel is a cartoon about a little boy and his pet and the unique world in which they live, and of course their adventures.

I’m really happy I finally got this cartoon finished so I don’t have to keep hounding myself about it! You know the feeling I’m sure. Now I can get back to the important things… like paying bills and seeing the sunlight once in a while!

So without further ado, here’s Hadgel:

I robbed a bank

When I logged onto Facebook this afternoon, I had quite an unexpected and entertaining note from a television news photographer I used to work with in Portland, Oregon.
It was a link to an article from a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania newspaper. The story was about a lone bank robber who recently knocked off a bank there. My friend Scott’s note simply read, “Were you in Pittsburgh around noon today?” And here’s why:

Maybe it’s the angle, or who knows what, but this robber has a stunning resemblance to me!
Sure he’s older and the police description puts him a little shorter than me, but it’s kind of weird!
I asked around my newsroom to see if this guy really did look like me. I got a bunch of chuckles, and my friend and producing colleague, Brandice, said that I was much cuter than the aforementioned robber. I’d have to say she’s right. But who knows. Maybe this is me… from the future… coming back in time… to knock off banks to get rich. Maybe I lose a few inches of height in a tragic accident 20-30 years from now… who knows!
But I definitely think it’s odd, and entertaining!
By the way, here’s the link to the newspaper article: Lone bandit robs National City Bank in Buffalo Township
So if you happen to see me in a bank soon, don’t freak out… I’m just there to make a deposit. A legal deposit without any firearms that is!
