The Big Belch

I put cartoons up on The Moderate Voice from time to time. I’m now working on a graphic novel with themes some TMV visitors might find of interest — the environment and corporate greed. The Big Belch is kind of like Dr. Strangelove meets BP. Here’s an early video about its creation.

    Dear Kay Wood, welcome. what an output you have. How great too to see a real artist’s work pattern and thank you for the films. I’ve written about the “insufferable BP” (should be voiced like Sylvester cat of ‘sufferin’ succotash’ fame) here as have others of our writers. Also speaking to the fisher people who live in the spill was enlightening, as they are very like a deeply ethnic group until themselves, very much like our family of immigrants and refugees who made a strong niche for themselves with the land and water. This to me is what BP destroyed, actual humans and the waters humans across the world utilize to stay alive by fishing amongst other things; poisoning the plants and creatures. I see that filming your storyboards was a little bit of a challenge, and the ‘seasick’ effect can be gotten past, if you just turn your camera (if cell phone) to stop action, or even off, til you move to next frame up you want. Takes a little more time… or, if you can, lay out all your frames on table or wall and pan across in straight horizontal line. I am learning too. Taught by my 14 year old grandson who just finished romeo and juliet film filmed in HO trainyard… Verona is now a western ghost town background, and yonder sun breaks on train engines in the roundhouse. lol. Again, thanks for your brave work, and I LOVE graphic novels, I wish I had an inker for my written books, as I can draw images (sort of) but not the same character in many different poses (who look alike– I know you know what I mean…LOL)

    Keep going and pay no attention to anyone who does not further your vision. We grandmothers and grandfathers of the world, esp, I think, ever want to support those who can do what we cannot… have extra reach like you do via your fine art.

    Thanks.
