I'm Engaged

Hey everyone,

Just thought I would share some exciting news. On Friday night, December 22nd, 2006 I proposed to Mandy, and she accepted. I proposed to her by making her an animation of a character she helped me conceive over a year ago.

It's technically unfinished, for those of you who are familiar with traditional pencil tests, and I do have the intentions of finishing it. But considering the time I had to do it, with juggling between freelance work and keeping her in the dark about it, I am very happy with how it turned out, from an animation point of view. And obviously estatic with the response I got from Mandy.

Anyways I hope you enjoy, and be sure to watch the entire thing, because I secretly videotaped her watching the video, the actual proposal and her response.



As a side note, I would like to thank Paul Goodrich at Merlin Studios for helping me with the sound design.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
