Hey gang,

So, I finally went ahead and started an Instagram account. There are some really talented artists over there that aren’t on DA, so it will be cool to follow their work. I’ll still be posting my work here as well, but I’ll also be posting stuff over there. I haven’t quite figured it all out yet, but ya' know… feel free to follow me. ;)

Hey gang,

Hey gang,

We just launched a new video on YouTube today!  www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNh0ca…

The animated short is a spoof of the notorious "Strong" video put out by GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry on December 6, 2011.

Our version is titled "Weak" and stars "Rick Parody," a humorous animated character who, through various acts of cartoon violence, reveals the hypocrisies contained in the original video.

Here's a screenshot:

Go check it out www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNh0ca… and give us a "like" if you're so inclined. ;)

Thanks much,
JoE C!

Hey gang,

2A! has officially teamed up with the fabulous Fine Bros to create some killer animated shorts!

Our first collaboration, "You're Entering Puberty Charlie Brown," has just launched on The Fine Bros YouTube channel.  The short is a hilarious spoof on the classic Peanuts cartoons, and examines what happens when Charlie Brown and the gang hit puberty.  It was written by The Fine Bros and animated by myself and the rest of the gang at Two Animators!

The Fine Bros Collab by JoeCostantini

If that weren't cool enough, we also collaborated to create an "Animated Outtakes" video, which you can find on the 2A! YouTube channel, and a semi-embarrassing "Behind the Scenes" video, which can be viewed on The Fine Bros 2 YouTube channel.

"Trifecta attack!"

The "Diss Crazy!" iPhone app 2A! worked on is now available at the app store. "Diss Crazy!" is the first iPhone app that actually raps insults for you. Pick a character, pick a topic, and drop a diss bomb right through your iPhone or iPod touch!

It recently got some pretty sweet reviews over at iPhone Footprint www.iphonefootprint.com/2009/1… and SlapApp www.slapapp.com/diss-crazy ,and it's only 99 cents at the app store!

I designed and illustrated the characters for this app, so be sure to show some love and go download it. ;)

Sup deviants,

I mainly started this page as motivation to start drawing for fun again. It's easy to get caught up in the daily grind of client work and eventually finding that you don't necessarily enjoy drawing as much anymore. Obviously drawing as a job is important, but I also think you need to keep  some type of outlet for yourself -- to push yourself in things you aren't necessarily comfortable with and continue to grow. So that's basically what this page is for me... just a place to do some drawing for fun!

Anyway, I hope whoever stumbles across this page likes what they see. Let me know if you do or you don't... either way it's cool and I appreciate the feedback. I'll also be posting new and old stuff, as well as some behind the scenes 2A! studio work (copyrights allowing). It should be pretty cool...

Also, much of my professional work can be seen at our studio Website: www.twoanimators.com

Peace out,
JoE C!
