If we were made of cellophane. by Endling If we were made of cellophane. by Endling
Of course we all know Karl isn't made of cellophane. He's ceramic! But it's a line of the song that inspired this image. ;3

If I were even a quarter of the animator *Unknown-person is, and I had reached him in the finals of the OC tournament Law of Talos, I would have just loved to make a parody of the music video "The Ghost of Stephen Foster" by Squirrel Nut Zippers. Every time I listen to the song I see the entire 'fight' taking place. Good times. X3

Here is the song: [link]

As I am not an animator, nor did I make it past the second round of LoT, I figured I may as well make a quick, fun image mimicking the latter portion of the music video.

Agh. It would be awesome if only it could be true. |D Hats off to you Unknown, mebbe one of these days we'll get to have a collab/battle/art jam/shindig. :3

Two years later, I finally stumbled onto Squirrel Nut Zippers in a bunch of music from a friend. I heard the cellophane line from Ghost of Stephen Foster and it clicked like a pistol hammer.

PS- you got me officially hooked to Squirrel Nut Zippers with this, and with the other music links you post with your works you have great taste in music :0 (ie Vindaloo, etc...)

Holy hand-grenades... I know you linked the song in the artist's comment, but I discovered it myself elsewhere (but didn't remember then that you had the song here too) when someone I know who's in Hotel Haven listed a couple songs that go pretty well with the OCT's theme. "The Ghost of Steven Foster" instantly made me want to see this piece again, coming over to ask if that song inspired this, but again not remembering that you had already stated so.

Anywho, just saying some sort of event that interested me.

...

Still love this piece to, dare I say it? "Pieces".

This is awesome. At first I thought you wanted to do something classic that resembles Steamboat Willie or those black and white era of Disney.

But hey, this is still awesome. Looks like a lot of fun and it's really fun to see this. :D
