Evidently some one likes it. Might get a few more submissions out the door then.

Sorry for the lack of art work up here, work has been insanity, plus, I just moved appts, thanksgiving, freelance, personal projects, ect.

In the mean time go check out the newest film at www.fortaxreasons.com. I went to school with Matt and Ben, and have the pleasure of working with Matt at the moment. Probably will be "working for Matt and Ben," in the future.

Thoughts

I've been doing some traditional animation on the film of a past professor for a month now. And very often, it has re-awoken that flame that started me down this path.

As I was mulling along on my way home, I happened accross the thought of how animation connects to guitar. For guitar was my first love, and how I spent my time in highschool (but I'm not a performer). And for some reason, things clicked in my head, as to what exactly that feeling was, that I rediscovered flipping pages these past few weeks.

It felt like I had been practicing, and finally, was just playing, and all the scales, and finger excercises had paid off, and I was watching mysel do something, I was not aware I could do. My next film will be pencil, and rough. I want you to see the feeling of letting your fingers play what they know, and want. Like you are watching the birth, and frollicking of my drawings. Like my pencil on the paper is like the fingers on the fretboard of a guitar.

I have given myself until 26 to get onto feature film animation. As of now, that is a year and a half. By 25 I will have a solid reel. I will finish my dialogue test with the chimps, and will have one reel-worthy new test every month, there after. I will have an updated reel by my birthday, and send it out. If opportunities present themselves before that, I will send what I have. I need to get some place where I can really grow. And be rewarded for the effort.

Lets hear it for Lou!

My friend Lou just earned a permanent position, at a very cool studio. Congradulations. I say earned, cause he worked harder then any one I know. He's quite smart and talented, yes, but he has a work ethic, that no one can match. He works smart, and works hard. This was not given away by any means.

Too...

Life has become WAY too serious. Thats not why I chose the path I'm on. Its all self imposed pressure, so its the hardest to knock off my shoulders.

Drawing ...

Vacation has begun. As well as trying to recover from some burn out. Best way to do that? Figure drawing at Spring studio. Had a great two days, just drawing, no pressure, no deadlines. Felt really good.

The red marks are from Minerva. She runs the place and will give your work a once over if you ask nicely. This place, I think, is a real rarity.























red marks are one and two minutes, some fives and tens up top.

In another 20 years, I might be able to draw. Till then, I'm gonna focus on not being lazy in the details, like knees and such when I'm rushing, and proportion. Like tiny heads, and sloppy appendages.

And the sketchbook:
