Clipboards make good makeshift flipbooks...

While working behind the counter at the SVA animation studio, boredom started to creep in. So I picked up a ballpoint pen and started doodling on the Cintiq sign-out sheets. After 20 minutes, and 16 pages, I ended up with this.

The best animations stem from sheer boredom.

Why does it said "You MUST Also Leave Your I.D.!*" ?

When you borrow a Cintiq tablet pen from the Animation Department to use in the computer labs, you have to not only sign your name on the sheets, but you have to leave your ID as compensation. Then when you're done, you give back the pen and you take back your ID card.

Same goes with other equipment, like light discs, headphones, pegbars and reference books.
