Animation Test from Joey Parlett on Vimeo.

Here is the first test run of an animation project I'm working on with Jeremy Schmall and Mark Wagner for The Agriculture Reader. We were not sure what to expect at the start. I'm pleased with the test and excited to go back and figure out how to improve the process. I'm guessing a finished video sometime February-ish.


Notes from the front (Battle Scene 2 start)

The first two images are the start of the new Battle Scene 2 drawing. I've also made a Battle Scene journal subtitled "Notes on the Front" to house my notes, hours, sketches and journal entries from different characters in the piece.

Whitey on the Moon

Whitey on the Moon, book one is complete. The book is 8.5"x8.5", 16pgs with a one color hand screen printed cover. Its bound by hand with a simple pamphlet stitch. I've bound and numbered the first 15 and have 75 more to go. They will be on sale this week at the Brooklyn Comics Festival and early next year off my website.


Babel's Mortgage Crisis 4

This piece is roughly 19"x24". I started with a 10"x24" piece of paper, I was getting a little frustrated with the structure not expanding outside of the rectangular format so I made the additions as construction progressed. Its Ink on paper.


Cover for Whitey on the Moon


Space #10

I'm making a book of these that will be done by the end of this month. The book will contain drawings 1-10. It will be titled "Whitey on the Moon". That's also the name for the series, named after a song by Gil Scott-Heron.

ARMy Tank

The ARMy Tank is part of the same series as the Anthropomorphic Church that crawls across the land and devours sinners. The ARMy tank was also an evolution of the ARMy Man.

Sandwich 2

Babel's Mortgage Crisis 3

I'm doing a stop motion animation of one of these being constructed in late November with my friends Jeremy and Mark.

The team so far

I need 16 of these for the first round. The ambitious goal is to get 36 so they form a square, 6 across and down...the same ratio as the tiny images in each piece.

Space # 6 Progress


Battle Scene 1

4 more to go for this series. I'll have another one in December. I'm working on 8 more space pieces and then back to another battle scene. This piece was roughly about 75hrs. I'll post the time sheet as well.
Update: I recently had this scanned. There is a 40"x60" flat scanner here in the city! The name of the facility is Laumont Color Lab Co.


The large moon space scene is going to be a few shades darker for dramatic affect.
