Gruesomestein's Monster's...

...Hey y'all. Look what's on You Tube! "Gruesomestein's Monsters!" For those of you who don't know, a couple of years ago, myself and my partner in crime, Riccardo Durante, co-created, co-wrote, co-designed, and co-directed this series of animated shorts. Check 'em out!!!

These are AMAZING. You are so gifted and lucky...I love the writing and the character designs and the backgrounds. I especially loved the rivalry between Russell and that owl! Hilarious!!!

Great stuff of course!! Love the worst date. Love them all.

Congrats on the Yin Yang Yo debut too, Mark. Sounds like it went very well!

Mark Ackland said...

Thanks a lot folks! I've been wanting to posst them for a while. They were so fun to work on and I would love to do some more at some point.

Smook said...

Love them all too but THE WORST DATE is the fav for me as well!

Kudos on the animation as well!

If you are going to series, I'll board on it any day of the week!

Nelvana has pure 24k gold on a shelf here. It would (SHOULD!) be a huge hit as a series.

Cartoons that are funny!!!!
Great designs, expressions, timing, animation.....outstanding.
I agree with Smook on two points-The Worst date was my fav....and secondly they look like a lot of fun to storyboard!

Barx said...

Jazzy Justin said...

Sure miss your posts...you gotta' put up more of your cool stuff!

Heath said...

Mark!! Man, I love these! I want this on tv every night!

Instead of dinner and a movie, my wife and I had dinner and Gruesomestein's Monster's. We laughed our heads off!

Great stories, very funny timing, and the best use of limited animation I've seen in awhile! I hope we can see more in the future.

Hi Mark,

Nice work! Not sure if you remember me at all. I was one of the few students you had at Studio M. It's great to see you're still at it making jaw dropping work.
