Here We Come-a Wassling

Merry Christmas everyone!

Only a few scant days until the most wonderful time of the year. I'm technically Jewish, but it's still a cool holiday. :3
....Except for the rampant commercialism. And being incredibly poor and jobless. That's...that's less awesome.
Anyhoo, just a few updates and blurbs:
~ Thank you to AngelP, I finally opened up a Deviant Art account! It's only got a few sketches and what-not, but take a look here if you're interested. I'm actually working on more stuff! For real! I know! XD
~If applicible, I'm sure everyone has their own family-specific Christmas tradition. My parents, for example, would always play the Nutcracker Suite Christmas morning while we had bagels and locs for breakfast. My own personal tradition, starting waaaay back, was to watch a certain animated special. No, it's not the stop-motion Rudolph, although I never get tired of watching it, it's The Claymation Christmas by animator Will Vinton. I've yet to find a hard copy of it (my Dad taped it for us back in LA), but I don't have a VCR anymore. Thankfully, there's YouTube.
So! For all you animators out there, or just Christmas enthusiasts, here are the links to all three parts of the Claymation Christmas. ^_^

~Part 1
~Part 2
~Part 3

To this day, I'm still blown away by the 'O Christmas Tree' segment, and the 'Carol of the Bells' short always makes me laugh. Rex and Herb are so incredibly expressive, and just the level of detail they go into...!
...Plus, it's got the California Raisins in it!! How could you possibly go wrong? :D
Well, looks like that's all I've got. I'll try and get some more art up ASAP. Until then, Merry Christmas everyone, and have a safe and happy New Year. ^_^

HOLY COW, that is old!! I can't believe you found this on youtube-- Actually, I can't believe I forgot about this! I used to watch this *all* the time. The Carol of the Bells was my favourite sequence, along with the bit where the California Raisins pop in.

Merry Christmas!!!
