Summer daze...

Gentlemen! I haven't posted anything really substantial in a while and figured it was time enough to do just that. I hope your summers are going well and that you are finding time in between busy and hectic schedules for yourselves. For me, leisure time is hard to come by nowadays. I have become quite an expert juggler (figuratively of course; juggling work, school, and husbandry/fatherhood), but I still manage to keep my sanity in tact and enjoy life like I've always done. I think people could learn a lot from dreamers. Cynicism is rampant among everyone that I know and it drives me crazy to think that they will never realize that there is no use in sweating the small stuff. Today was the worst work day I've had in a long time, and consequently the first time I've literally "raged out" in years. But there is nothing that a long nap can't fix! I am digressing quite a lot here, you'll have to forgive me. So in bringing this post to a close I would like to extend my best wishes to both of you and hope that we will be together again soon. Happy summer!

Fantastical homes...

Hey guys! I had a thought whilst drinking some coffee that we should draw some fantastical lodgings. This is just a suggestion - and possibly another of the theme drawings we could do or somethin. I spend so much time drawing characters and such that I forget to draw scenery or the homes they live in. I think houses would be a challenge. Let me know what y'all think about this idea!

a thought on modern animation.

In the not so distant future...

Howdy fellas. I'm sure we are all familiar with SIGGRAPH and what it stands for. Special interest group for something something. This year they are holding the convention in Vancouver, which I'm absolutely sure I will not be attending. HOWEVER. They usually switch off locations every other year with Los Angeles. Jenny and I have already enough money to go for that week and I am officially inviting both of you (and whoever else you'd like to bring) to go. I understand that this is quite a lot of money to spend, but I think the benefits from attending the conference will be well worth it. I'm going to start up an account on ETSY that could possibly bring in some fundage for the trip there and the conference and such. The big whigs are going to be there, so I think it'll be in our best interests to try to go rub some elbows and drop some names. Who knows? Maybe we'll meet our future employers. I really hope we'll be able to work out some of the details when that gets closer, and yes, I'm aware of just how far into the future this is and it is hard to predict what will happen in that time. But we should try to go nonetheless. Here's some more info on the matter : http://www.siggraph.org/s2011/. Peace, my bros.
