Jacob Menden: Animation Workshop

Animate object(ive)

While Hollywood’s got most of its eggs in the 3D animation department, traditional 2D animation is still alive in the underground. Take self-taught, local artist Jacob Menden who draws on paper and animates his own cartoons using a computer. He’s built up his reputation as an independent animator over the internet in the past few years. If you know a child interested in animation, Menden can help show him or her the way—he’s teaching a week-long animation workshop for children at Art Supply Depo. Videos from his last workshop are visible at artsupplyanimation.tumblr.com, and see Menden’s own work at jacobmenden.tumblr.com. 

Monday, August 4 through Thursday, August 8, noon-3pm. $100. 29 S. St. Clair St. 419-720-6462. artsupplydepo.com
