1. Continue working on the Drawlloween calendar. On Thursday when you come in I will have boxes set up in homework folder for you to drop in the drawings you have so far. They do not need to be inked or colored at this point just drawings that relate to the themes on the drawing calendar up to Thursday's date. Remember,  the goal of Drawlloween is to push your conceptual creativity.
2. Think about the environment you would like to create for your sack. Have some ideas ready for Thursday, no drawings necessary, just ideas.

Continue working on your thumbnail drawings on Thursday at the end of class I would like to see your thumbnail animatics with the audio included, it's okay if they are rough, this is a work in progress.
