The Sock MonstersWood Warts

Ever in search of sock salt, their staple diet, the sock monsters prowl the night, hunting out the bedrooms of smelly teenagers.

These nasty knotted fungaloids grow from the surface of any wooden surface a sock monster touches. If not kept under check, wood warts will continue to grow, requiring regular planing and sanding.

Sock saltThis simple animation was created back in 1998, using a combination of plasticine, Adobe Premiere, Photoshop and a 3d rendering program called Truespace, which no longer exists. The project took about 6 hours to complete from scratch.
