Animation Time! - Cartoon Turtle Rig

Today's Inspiration:

"I did what any kid likes to do: go to the movies, play, draw. It's not unusual. What's more unusual is to keep wanting to do those things as you go on through life. ... but there's enough weird movies out there so you can go a long time without friends and see something new everyday that kind of speaks to you."
