One day I was struggling to get some voice overs from my friends and I was desperate to animate. My friend Emy sent me a short poem of hers to work with, I really liked it because it was short and fun!  Animation + Otterpops = Awesome!

Using material from other people is great because it saves me the trouble of searching for ideas. I love being able to shut my brain down and drone off on a project. Creating ideas is sometimes one of the hardest steps in creating a cartoon.

Freelance artists usually charge their clients more if the client doesn't know what they want. This is because coming up with an idea is very difficult and time consuming for the artist! Chances are that the artist will draw something and it'll be rejected by the client because it doesn't meet their vision. Why? Because the client didn't clearly specify what they're looking for!

Another thing to remember is that when you're working with a freelance artist, you'll be paying them for their time not the final product.

ANYWHO! Otter pops are rad, they might be named differently depending on what part of the world you're in.
