I Can't Get No Sleep... (animation) by The-Directors-Cut I Can't Get No Sleep... (animation) by The-Directors-Cut
Depression, anxiety, lonliness and insomnia are best buddies. They also overstay thier welcome in my home. 
A lot of negative shit hase been happening in my life as of recent... None of which has been affecting me positively. So I took my emotions out on animation. I always was a punk at heart. The wall canvas called to me...

I was inspired to do this animation after listening to the song, "Sleepless," by Cazzette. Yes those are a few of the lyrics in the animation. I appreciate you cazzette. 

If this looks familiar, thats because its the finished version of my work in progress here: 
the-directors-cut.deviantart.c…

Anyway, I been mulling over like for about a year a design for a character that I wanted to be my avatar for any remixes and music videos I do. Not many know this but I am a closet DJ. I like making remixes. Before I post any remixes I wanted to make a concept for, "Dj Install Slayv Dryver." This is that concept. DJ install slayv Dryver is a ghost that possess people via bleeding. Took me a long time to finally bring it together coherently and I am happy with what I came up with. I look forward to animating stuff in the future. 

Also featured in this animation is DJ Install Slayv Dryvers 3 ghost dancers, whom are concepted in the graffiti on the wall. I'll upload the individual pieces of graffiti sometime. 

ALSO ALSO FEATURED...
1) punk pony. (i just randomly made him)
2) My friend :iconcrandaaj:
3) my friend and concept artist :iconswordticus: 
4) Me.

I took some pointers from Stylistic pointers from :iconluine0: and compositional pointers from :iconbrandoch-daha: 
thank you both for you inspiration. Hope it appeals and the humor resonates, as well as the lack thereof. 

:iconswordticus: also helped with some animation pointers. thanks buddy. 

How long has it been since I started working on this peice? Like... maybe 2-3 months? I cant remember. Why did it take so long? Well, I been working no several projects at once. some of those projects are more imprtant than others. I have a really big project coming out soon. Keep a lookout for my youtube!

I love the Dead milkmen. They are both great musicians, and hilarious. Whats your favorite Dead Milkman song?

Could not possible decide. There are some that I just quote so often, but they wouldn't necessarily be my favourites, you know? Sometimes I think my favourite of theirs is "The Secret of Life," but then again, on other days, it might be Peter Bazooka, or Stuart, or well, now that I think about it again, Punk Rock Girl. That's the one. Wait, unless it's "I Walk the Thinnest Line" But I still quote Methodist Coloring Book, Life is Shit, Big Deal...
