Gertie the Dinosaur (1914)

The Internet Archive has a copy of Winsor McCay's "Gertie the Dinosaur". It's a free download of the original animation (and its accompanying live action). This short video is a treasure! I recommend it to anyone who enjoys art or animation.

Here are some stills from the movie and the link:

The video is a 39 MB file quicktime formated video.

If a guy named Jon (he may also write under a different name) leaves a comment in your blog comment box that says "Look here" or something like it, don't click on it, but erase it immediately. It is a virus. Luckily I have a Mac, and it didn't have any effect. I hate to think of what it might have done if I had a PC.

Robots and Mazes

I drew this robot for Toon Club.

For those of you who have visited before, you know that I draw mazes in Church-- my kids like the distraction and it helps me to focus my somewhat unfocused mind.

These are free, but are still Copyrighted. So here's the deal: Print as many copies for family and friends as you can afford. Just please don't sell the copies.

You can click on the image to enlarge it, and click and drag the image to your desktop (if your using a Macintosh), or right click and make a copy to your desktop.
Enjoy! And thanks for stopping by.
