Last night Darth Vader came down from the planet Vulcan & said if you didn't watch this months SModimation....he'd melt my brain!

Stop Motion Madness

Here's some behind the scenes photos from SModimation 10 - Smerry Christmas

Here's early Ru-Scott. Styrofoam balls and wire.

2 Christmas bears from the dollar store were sacrificed to make Ru-scott

Little bit of hot glue...

Nail to hold up his mouth...

It's Ru-scott!

Then it was time for Kevin as the snowman

I had to make his Puck U jersey out of a couple of dollar towels. One of them was a leafs towel. Scandalous!

Little bit of hot glue..

Almost there..

Booya! It's a SnowKev

Setting up the shot..

Animating the characters..

A pic from the last shot.

Where the puppets reside today. On my shelf. Ever watching, staring, judging....

SMerry Christmas

SModimation 10 is up!

Smerry Christmas to all!

See it here

This one has some Stop motion madness Rank n' bass style. Probably more Rank'n Ass style... cause it's not as good as what they can do. Hope you likey!

Happy Holidays y'all!

Bear-Horse Graduates!

I got a cool lil' email from the Folks at the Russian LINOLEUM Fest.

Usually you never hear from a fest about anything after your film is screened. It's like a one night stand. So it was a cool surprise.

It's also cool to see one of my kids graduate. Turducken dropped out. The teachers said it was like he wasn't even there. That kid from Peanut Butter Fish Pockets went all crazy with his child stardom and is now in rehab. Oh! and Douchey?! Don't let me even start about Douchey.

Big ol' thanks to all at LINOLEUM Fest!

You look like you might not give a tit....

If so this just might be for you.

It's the perfect gift for a grandmother or a grandmothers friend, or even a grandmothers grandmothers friend.


I bet she could play a GRAND I right? anybody? No one?...Thanks you've been a great crowd! Goodnight!

(made specially for
@ on twitter who tweeted the idea to me. Yay!)

I'm on a mexican radio!

"This Starktoons guy sounds like a jackass!"

Actually it's not Mexican at all. But it is spicy!

I did lil' interview that will air Tuesday the 2nd at 1:25pm p.t. /4:25pm e.t. on

So tune in if you want to hear me ramble on like an idiot. I sound all nervous/retarded. Beyond that, I do sound like one of those morning helicopter dudes they used to have for traffic. I've always wanted to sound like one of those guys.

Thanks again to Derek Moore @ Evolution1079 for the interest in doing the interview!

Jesus Strikes Back!

Tune in from where you left off! Where Kevin & Scott are watching as a giant Jesus bellows and stomps around town, possibly peeing themselves. I know I peed myself. 3 times! I'm sure everyone who saw it did...right? ...No? ...Nobody? Yeah me neither, I've never peed in my life...I swear (shifty eyes)


Check it out!

Plus download the awesome end song by my buddy Ted Wilson. YEAH!

Sweet Jesus! It's time for another SModimation!

St. Stephen Richardo Starkus patron saint of miscellaneous bits of string and beef jerky.

It's first of the month! New SModimation day! HOLY TITS! FAWWK!!!

This SModimation is 1 of a 2 part excerpt from SModcast 52: The Crapture.

If you know this episode, then you'll know Jesus is coming back and he isn't coming to pet puppies, make cotton candy and listen to babies laugh like last time he was here.

This SModimation is brought to you by: The letter B and.....Fleshlight

G4TV Podcast playback

G4TV did a really kickass interview with Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier all about the SModcast podcast network.

Kevin says what I've always felt. When they are talking it's like you are the 3rd person in the room. Feels like hanging with friends.

There's also a little snippet from SModimation 2: "Aquatic Justice" in there. That's the teats!

Check it!

A Cautionary Tale

It's a drug fueled cartoon. Starting off with a couple of characters Called Spliff & Knifey Brownie. Then we move on to a Muppet style live show where Ralph Scott spins his coke & maryjane adventure to the special guest: Kevin Smith.

Ralph was always my favorite muppet as a kid.

Look for a special muppet like cameo from 2 of the fellas from Tell em' Steve-Dave

Go look now!

Yuks instead of Yaks

What is up people. I have a hankering to help sick people laugh. Why you ask? Well, recently I was super sick & on some antibiotics. It was the worst. At one point I had to call 911 cause I thought I was on the way out. Never had to do that before. Don't want to do that again really either.

When sick you have terrible dreams and pretty terrible awakened times as well. I couldn't even watch anything dramatic. The only thing that helped me feel a little better was watching a whole bunch of comedy.

So I would like to help sick people get some yuks instead of yaks. Or maybe yuks inbetween the yaks. I have no idea how I can achieve this, but I'm putting it out there to you internet. Maybe I'll figure a way of doing this or maybe something is already in place that I can take part in.

Just wanted to put the word out there.

If you have any ideas on the subject or you are a funny fawker who thinks this is a good idea, throw me an email at

Highest of fives,

Steve-arino-bagino Stark

The new SModimation Avatarded is up now. Wooooo! Check it out!

Huge thanks to Kevin Smith, Scott Mosier and Ken Plume! I'd never thought in a million years I'd have something playing at Comic-Con. Super cool

I wouldn't of been able to get it done in time for Comic-Con without my friends that helped me out. Thanks friends. You saved the day. (That's them below under clean up and lipsync)

I get by with a little help from my friends

I thought I'd throw in a little behind the scenes drawing. There I am cleaning up a rough drawing. It was one of my favorite drawings of the toon. It's the antic before he starts coughing.

Anti-Serious Animation Party/ So long Vancouver

What is up! I will screening some of my cartoons at the anti-serious animation party.

Fun fun. It will be my last hurrah here in Vancouver as I am moving to Toronto in September. Also fun! Will I stay in Toronto long? Probably not, I'll be closer to my beloved NY and I'll actually get to see the eastern provinces of Canada.

Sweet deal. So come on down and check out a bunch of animation.

Happy Canada Day! New SModimation!

Oohhhhh Caaa-naaa-ddaaaa~~~~!!!!

Sing it with me now!

How's about a Canadian themed SModimation on this day of days?

As Kevin says:

This episode stars "Gordo - the righteously indignant Canadian" from the SModcast episode 57: Terrorist Pizza.

In my own head Gordo & Smitty from SModimation #1 are brothers. I would love to see that family at a Christmas dinner. They'd be constantly yelling and snapping at each other & bonding as a family agreeing how everything happening in the world is hog shit. Plus! Let's not forget Smitty's compulsion for prostitutes with crotchless panties! That's just a recipe for entertainment.

Click here to view SModimation #5

Fun stuff!

Look at this kickass souvenir! Ming Chen just beat the hell outta Santa Claus for the #1 spot at giving awesome gifts. I never thought anything I've drawn would end up on a puck. I feel so Canadian. Thanks Ming!


While looking through sketch books for some character designs I did a while back I came across the original Aquaman & Smosier Fish drawings. Fun!

Animation Block Party 2010 - AMIH

Howdy doody partners! A Moment in History will be playing at this years ABP. I went to ABP in 2008 for Turducken's premiere. It was sooo much fun. It's where I met some NY friends and just plain fell in love with Lady Liberty. With her sexy green dress, her big ol' toes, her torch and that big crown thingy.

I'm gonna live in that city someday...oh yes....maybe the giant green ball & chain and I will get an apartment together. Those will be the days. I can't promise I wont cheat on her with other statues...but I can sure pretend to.

Anyhoo, If you are in NY check it out. ABP is always a good time. Plus, free beer! Not even Gandhi could say no to that!

Check it!

SModimations @

Check out the SModimations in their natural habitat. Feeding, grooming, occasionally mating with a fleshlight at

Just remember that you are in their home so don't look them directly in the eyes and don't even look at their fleshlights.

The page looks awesome and I love being named "The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang" of podcasts.

Cause in real life I might be able to kick start a jukebox, but I'd trip on the cord on the way out of the room trying to strut and land face first.....Then I'm just fucking Potsie

Hitler eating the queen?!

Go check out the new SModcast. Where the awesome Kevin Smith & Scott Mosier chat about the new sponser of SMod.

I listened to it on Sunday and couldn't sleep. Cause they talk about me. I don't think anyone could sleep after having a couple of their heroes say your name on a show that you love.


Like I said in the post when I got the first shout out, It's like Harry Potter mid movie just stopping and commenting on how sweet my haircut is and how my jeans are pretty cool & me being like....Harry was talking about me! Did you all see that?!

I'm super proud & excited to be doing the cartoons and super glad for the sponser (the Fleshlight- The #1 selling male sex toy in the world) that throws the salary my way.

The money is an awesome bonus, but it's pay enough that Kevin & Scott & the youtube commenters liked my cartoons.

If you aren't checking out SModcast or you haven't checked it for a while take a look!

It's turning into a Smod network with weekly shows>>

Monday- SModcast

Wednesday- Mo & Glo

Friday- Tell 'em Steve-Dave

It's all free!

My Big News!!

4 years ago I made a 5 year goal to get my own series. I made it early! Woooohooooo!!! As you can see above, I've been hired to do monthly SModcast cartoons.

My mind was totally blown when I got the first message and phone call about it.

When I made the first FLS, I was feeling uninspired and just wanted to do a cartoon for fun. Sometimes working on your own stuff can leave you with "Are they even going to like it?" or "What's the point?". When you finish it, you know that you love it and you just send it out there and see how people respond. I had no idea that FLS would ever get me a plug on SModcast or anything that's come.

I thought it might get a few more views but other than that just thought it would be this little thing I did because I love SModcast.

Being Uninspired rules! I encourage the hell out of it. Go out there and get down on yourself today! It'll get you somewhere!

I'm just so glad that Kevin & Scott & everyone liked the 2 FLS cartoons. You guys rock! Can't wait to see how you like the new SMod-toons!

It's a celebration!! I've been doing cartwheels and retarded victory dancing like this for at least a month in my apartment. I do cartwheels to get groceries, I scream & Woo! on the bus and I push strangers to the ground and toss rock candy in their eyes.
"HAVE SOME CANDY!" I say. (toss) "THIS IS A GOOD THING!" (toss, toss,) "I'M SO HAPPY!!" (toss, toss, toss)

Go watch the first 2! For the Love of SMod! & For the Love of SMod 2 FUN!
