Moses parts the Red Sea:
http://blog.ninapaley.com/2015/04/17/moses-parts-the-red-sea/
There are better ways to encode animated gifs ( http://blog.pkh.me/p/21-high-quality-gif-with-ffmpeg.html ) but I don’t have access to them right now. This was exported directly from Macromedia Flash 8 (2005), so it’s dithered. If anyone knows of a safe, modern online .mov-to-.gif converter that uses a non-dithering encoder, or same to download for my antique (OS 10.6) Mac, let me know.

Trying to part the Red Sea.
Water, like fire, is basically impossible for me to animate correctly, so I try to come up with extremely stylized ways to evoke it. Right now I'm designing water-walls for the Parting of the Red Sea. Not sure how it's gonna work out, but here are a couple tests as I find my way.

Tomorrow morning I'm getting up at some ungodly hour to take 2 planes to Virginia, to give a talk Saturday evening at VCU, during which I will wear this shirt, after which people will ask me where they can get such a shirt, and I will tell them they have only ONE DAY LEFT to order one. But right now it's Thursday and there are still 4 days left to order. http://teespring.com/angelodeath

I got one in the last round. I really like telling people about your work when they ask about this wonderful design.

And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

Finally! Official trailer for "The Prophet." I still haven't seen the film (other than the bit I animated), but I'm hopeful it will come to a theater near me before the end of the year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9dY5zkwK5M

Any professionals out there who have given up flying? How has it impacted your work? I never want to fly again, seeking role models.

It might sound crass but drugs can help. If you need to fly you might think of talking to a psychiatrist and getting a prescription that would help you get through it a little more emotionally intact.
