Unstung (Animated Parody of "Unforgiven")

You'll probably be better able to appreciate this video if who've seen the 1992 Clint Eastwood movie Unforgiven, as Unstung is a parody of the final gunfight scene therein and the conversation immediately following it. It might also have some added appeal for those if you who just don't like hornets, yellow jackets, or bugs in general. Anyway, here's Unstung:

If you're interested, some more info on the video and how I made it is available here. *

Adventures of Stickman (first 4 episodes)

Drawing (and animating) stick figures is a time-honored art. Here are the first episodes of Wes Abrams own unique contributions to the genre. I think Episodes 1 and 2 have their charm, but it's in episodes 3 and 4 with the introduction of Stickchick that the story really takes off :)

In addition to Stickman, Wes Abrams also has several other animated series, an animation community site, a blog, and other animation-related items, all of which can be accessed from his site, *
