Hater Blockers

All the unnecessary hatin' that has been happening lately toward the Flash platform has been getting out of hand and definitely on my nerves ... so I have decided to start animating small little nuggets of fun into some of my drawings here on the blog. If you are not among the misinformed and propaganda-gobbling masses, please enjoy! Of course, I am also adding a nice bit of accessibility for all the iPhone users, taking advantage of SWFObject's graceful degradation capabilities.

Since I have absolutely been loving Illustrator's new "blob brush", I decided to spend some time today getting further acquainted with its pre-cursor, the Flash brush. The last minute eye tracking is a bit kludgy, but it will do for this bit of fun. Here's the preliminary attempt:

//TRACKING THE CURSOR, THANKS TO http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/144/tn_14417.html
stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, mouseMove);
function mouseMove(event:MouseEvent):void{
	monsterGuy.eyeLeft.rotation = parent.mouseX/2 -180;
	monsterGuy.eyeRight.rotation = parent.mouseX/2 -180;
