omg-  1. . i just watched your "wow we can animate in adobe - awesomely-bad-good!!?" 3. and now i looked up your caricatures link- and - i'm stuck at >>>  knotts berry farm! which i haven't heard anyone even mention THE WONDER of that place since president carter which that was the "era" the last time i was there - and i recall this being during like "the fall season" because of that  "one ride" which i guess "they had made" "the one ride which was sort of like a roller coaster-  kinda scary" which i guess becomes "whatever the season is like but this -becomes also kind of suspicious after you go to the knots berry farm a few times - like "hey! thats the same ride DAD!" :) ha !-  but it was "kinda cool".  they did  have nice jams and jellys!.  but that stuff is pretty hard to "play with" i remember thinking to myself!

anyhow - i love your stuff!  i have been wanting to get back to "trying- attempting- to- animate - for ever- i could never learn flash- at all.  ever.  i created so many layers and layers of animation- i might as well have made an old fashion flip book which is what everyone is doing now with moleskin books- and I've never even had a moleskin book. i made a lot of flash ? whatever they were called-  which were about 30 seconds long- with my own music loops  [back in the mid to late 90s and they would have never been "able to be uploaded to the internet" they were so huge in "size" i gave up finally.

so basically what you just did- was show me how to animate in adobe - simply and easily- and by now
i do know how to keep it simple.

you ROCK! thanks thanks thanks!

Knott's will always be an important time in my artistic and business growth.  

also, if you like this particular picture, you can see it being painted here.…

Also, thank you so much for the kind words.  I am happy whenever I can inspire someone else as much as other artists have inspired me.

i have been reading most of your tips  - tricks- advice- and have learned about 20 plus years of stuff in about a day. and i forgot to mention you are HILARIOUS with that animation thing. i laffed so hard from the point you got stuck on the guides and the "oh my great drawing i draw" i made my husband watch because he watches me do that all the time. . ha ha. but when the animation was done it was like "o my god he made gold come out of its own ass". ha ha.  so cool!
