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!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Here are 2 "Holiday Cards" I was working on but didn't get to finish. You'll see why in my next post, but I thought I would at least put these up for Christmas.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!!

Some Thanksgiving Sketches

Did these while coming up with the Thanksgiving Day post, except for the lil old lady with the handbag....She's a woman I see on the bus in the morning on the way to work...Always dresses like that and has a hat to match every outfit. It's really funny to see her when shes running late, she has to "shuffle-run" holding her hat to her head.....I don't mean to be mean..but you'd have a chuckle too if you saw this in the early morning.

Wish i had used the hunter for something...he was fun to come up with....was actually gonna use him in the top left drawing, because the hunter i have there sucks.
