Wow. It’s almost over. Thinking back on this year is odd, because it seemed so much longer than it was.
Before this year, I had posted a variety of videos under a variety of usernames on YouTube and elsewhere on the internet. I knew I wanted to be a filmmaker, but had no real direction, nothing I could hang on to.
Finally, this year, I decided to sit down and stick with one name – “littlbox” – and see how it went. And boy did things change.
I started back up on Newgrounds to really try and take animating more serious this time around. I tried several different styles, seeing how far I could go without any basic comprehension on how to draw (which makes animating interesting, lemme tell ya). Through that, I somehow stumbled upon several creatures known as “Lip Heads“, and they quickly became my favorite characters to bring to life. And since they seem to be popular with other people as well, I’m taking it upon myself to dedicate a good part of 2019 to bringing more Lip Head adventures to the small screen.
The best thing by far to come out of restarting on Newgrounds was joining FlowDownStream, a collective of amazing guys who are just as insane as me. I can’t thank each of them enough for letting me be part of this amazing journey down stream, and for giving me the motivation to continue on with my own work. I can’t wait for Season 2!
On YouTube, I’ve been experimenting further with live-action. I’ve upgraded my camera to a GH3, and I spent a good chunk of the summer doing nothing but writing scripts.
My biggest accomplishment was completing the script for Talentless, a feature length movie that’s currently in pre-production. Production is slated to start in February 2019, and I’m ecstatic to start on something completely new to me.
I’ve also done a lot musically. I released a full-length album, two EPs, and a single on my Bandcamp, alongside several pieces of music on my Newgrounds and Soundcloud. Writing music is my next passion in life, and I’ve already started demoing for my 2019 album.
In my personal life, there were a lot of good moments as well. I graduated from high school, got a driver’s license, and started working a couple of new jobs.
There were also several really bad points in the year. I don’t want to get into too much detail, but this included an old friend of mine jumping off a bridge, another friend getting attacked in front of me, and being refused admission from my dream school for reasons unbeknownst to me. All of these things really brought me down for a while, but each time I’ve been able to get back into doing what I love: creating.
This was the year of experimentation. I’ve learned a lot from the mistakes I made in 2018, and in some ways, this whole year was just preparation for 2019. I’m really excited what the future holds, and I’m ready to take on whatever is in store for me.
Thank you all so much. I hope each of you has a Happy New Year. :D

Since September, I've been working on the script for my first featue live-action film, and now I'm happy to say the pre-production ball is rolling!
The film is going to be called Talentless, and if you're interested, you can check the production status at my blog here: https://talentless-production.blogspot.com/

Just a brief update to let people know that I am still alive. I'm on a good kick right now, and I've made it my mission to post stuff EVERY DAY! However, not all of it will be on Newgrounds or Youtube. They'll be scattered across the internet on my various accounts, but I'll be collecting them all into a single space on my tumblr (which I just remembered I had) here: https://alittlbox.tumblr.com/
Animation-wise, I'm working on another Lip Heads which I plan on getting out by the end of the month as well as several FlowDownStream episodes that have yet to be released, so keep an eye open for those.

I've been listening to a lot of emo music lately (Algernon Cadwallader, Jank, Cap'n Jazz...) and decided to give it a try. So I've spent most of the month working on an EP, which is now complete! It's under the name "Runny Babbit", and you can get it for FREE here: https://littlbox.bandcamp.com/album/s-t-ep

I guess I'm user of the day!
Yeah, I wasn't too sure what it was either, but after a quick lookup, it's the result of a random formula that takes into account someone who's been active on the website in the past 30 days and has a profile picutre. But I'm glad that the formula was in my favor today. Thanks, Tom! :)

June has arrived. Finally!
I'm really sorry that I wasn't all that active in May. I had several huge priorities, including graduating from school and finishing a documentary that's taken me a year to make (the documentary's on a band called Little Tin Frog; you can check it out here: https://youtu.be/cjYp1EHXPaI), that kept me from experimenting too much with my internet stuff.
However, now that May's gone, June can come out and play!
Animation-wise, I'm currently working on a sequel to Lip Heads. I'm toying with FBF animation in this one, and it's looking awesome. I'm hoping to get it out in a week or two.
I'm also working on compiling a musical companion to my Chicken Dave stuff on Youtube. It'll be either an EP or an album of sorts that'll be released on my Bandcamp sometime this month.
I'll also be trying some spontaneous projects to experiment more with style. So expect a lot of varied stuff coming from this channel soon.
