Check it out!  This is the first preview of the show that everyone at Titmouse has been working on since Motorcity!

We’ve got about 75% of the former Motorcity crew working on this, everything from animators to BG painters.  The main character has the same voice as Mike Chilton as well.

I know it’s not Motorcity, but it may be the closest thing we get for a while.

It’s going to be the first animated show made exclusively for Netflix, which is an exciting piece of history to be a part of… I hope you guys like it!


Well, we did ask for Motorcity back…no matter how Titmouse does it.

Hey everyone!
Check out this trailer for Turbo F.A.S.T., its the show I am working on for Titmouse!

Guys With Pencils Episode 138 - What We Do and How To Make It Better!

From the start of this podcast we have always made it a point to be observant of what our effect on the animation industry is. Working as Canadians within this industry we have either been working on content for overseas clients or working on our own ideas and trying to expand the Canadian animation scene at home and abroad.
In this episode, we discuss our own personal thoughts based on the past three years. It revolves around the politics, the finances and the culture that we live in that defines our roles in the Canadian animation scene.
