In high school for a few minutes I was filled with divine inspiration by Salad Fingers, who turned five years old this month. I started making flash cartoons, pestering David Firth about techniques and secrets, and eventually sloughed off a few. I always dreamed of eventually having people do voices, but I sound like a nine-foot-tall helium addict, and I didn't have the wherewithal to gather my friends to do it instead. So the fake-O pre-talkie feel was more out of laziness, as well as technological ignorance (in case that's not clear enough by the quality), than some kind of snooty preference. In any case, feel free to like the hell out of these.
The "Firthst" ones are in a series about Ghostman. I stole a lot of it remorselessly from
Salad Fingers, as is readily and repeatedly admitted in it.
1. Ghostman (August 30, 2004)
2. Ghostman Entertains (August 31, 2004)
3. Swimming Pool (September 11, 2004)
4. Birdman (December 04, 2004)
5. Imp (November 27, 2005)
I stopped the series after "Imp", so you'll have to use your vivid imagination to find any closure. The next few are meaningless jumbles of unpleasant animated images. Enjoy!
