Temporary Fix **UPDATED**

Re-edited the reel, and added a soundtrack to it. (Thanks Adam for the crit!)

I have been in the process of getting a new website, but it has been painfully slow because I have had little time to figure out how to get it done. So in the mean time I have replaced my old unfinished site with just a place holder that has my current reel, a link to this blog, and a link to email me. So check it out, and hopefully I will have the new site finished soon.

Some REALLY exciting news...

I was recently selected by Pixar animator, Stephen Gregory, to be part of a private tutoring program, where 4 or 5 lucky animators will be tutored, one on one, for six weeks by Stephen.

I feel extremely lucky, and honored to be part of this opportunity, and I thank Stephen for sharing his expertise, and for choosing me to be a part of it. This is really an exciting and amazing opportunity for me and I am looking forward to learning from him, and I wish the best for the others who were selected as well.

Stephen has worked in the industry for over 10 years, and has worked on every Pixar film since "A Bug's Life." Before that he worked at Sierra-Online, and he also teaches classes at, I believe, the Academy of Art in San Fran.

Back to work

This has been sitting in the "To do" pile for a while, and I know I rushed the coloring (sorry), but I didn't have a lot of time, and wanted to get this done so I can post.

Since Ani-Flop, I have been fortunate to get steady freelance work doing some commercials for the past few months, and I have been able to do it all from home, which was nice. I was able to work when I wanted, how I wanted, but after a while the lack of interaction can get a lil nerve racking.

Needless to say, though, I recently started working at Curious Pictures on their Little Einstein's production, which is on the tail end of production for the next 4 months. I've already met a bunch of great people, and I am hoping this will lead to more work down the road.

In the meantime, here is a lil sketch I did of my transition from working at home, to commuting again into the city. Thanks for stopping by.
