Only a few hours left...

That's it- last day at work. The week was a bit weird, doing so much and yet so little. It's been crazy. Didn't get as much work done as I'd hope. *sigh*

Everyone at the studio were so nice, signing a big goodbye card for me.
I have to say that this has been the best production I've ever worked on, and mostly because of the fantastic crew.
I'm posting a small sample of the few drawings that can be found on the card- Awwww...I am so going to miss those guys.

Main image by Giancarlo Volpe- blue Kitty by Elsa, MomoTotoro by Bryan, Jet by Joaquim and Zhao by Angie




So for the rest of the evening: one last outing with Kazu and Amy, going to see Ratatouille. Then, last bit of laundry, last bit of packing.
Tomorrow, flight back to Montreal.
It's oooooover!

Weee! Mitsuri here! Tis my skecthdump account. :)

That's so sweet of them, giving you a big goodbye card with Zhao and Jet in it :D. I was squeeing with glee when you mentioned one of your crew mates drew you Zhao. >) Momo-Toro's so adorable, like big fat plushie. :)

Hullo hullo!
I know, so sweet- we always tried making cards for those who were leaving. What will be sad is that the less people there are on the crew, the smaller the cards will get. *sigh*
Hehe, both me and Angie love Zhao. Actually, I think a lot of the crew liked him too :)

Awww...I should try working with them if they have any future projects coming. I'll be in the States by the time they're hiring again. ^^;

Aww thats sweet of them XD That top panel is infuriating in its accuracy.

Sad that you're leaving though, CA will be much less awesome :(

Hehe, that's actually what I said out loud after reading: "Oh my God, it's all so true!!"
Well, I would never play Avatar preacher mind you.
Ah, very sad to leave CA. I'm not quite realising it yet. It will hit me when I'm on the plane.
AH well, back in a month!

*dies* I think that is the best card that I've ever seen.

I'm sorry to see you go, it was fun reading all of your travels!

Have a safe flight and trip home! I wanna see Ratatouille so bad...

It is definitely one superb card- I do love it...
ah well, no more travelling stories from me, until San Diego! Woohoo!

Awwww! I hope that you get lots of glee out of, well, living that top panel there, though. (Toph? In a bathing suit?? My mind!)

Zhao with a rose. My mind is not only broken, but set fire to. FWOOSH!

Jun. 30th, 2007 09:42 am (UTC)

California will be less than awesome now without you! Have a safe trip back. Your co-workers are awesome and that card rocks.
rufftoon
Jun. 30th, 2007 09:43 am (UTC)
Ah, California is so filled with Awesome, it won't notice little me gone.
All the co-workers were an awesome crew. I'll be missing them lots.

Firs off, Ahahah ..lovely farewell card..
Wow. You're finally done with the production..can't really believe it..We will all cheer when we see your name at the credits!
rufftoon
Jun. 30th, 2007 10:14 am (UTC)
Yup, I'm done but there's still work happening over there. I almost wished I was staying a bit longer but...ah well. We'll all have to leave at one point.

Toph in a bathing suit. wow XD

btw have a safe trip home :)

and oh i was wondering.. u havent mailed out those prize sketches from your sketch coloring contest yet have you? cos i havent gotten mine in the mail.. so i was wondering if u did and if i just misplaced it *blush*
rufftoon
Jun. 30th, 2007 10:16 am (UTC)
Haha, very well- you and Jet can have the room :)
Nope, haven't mailed out the prize sketches. I've been toying around with them a bit, but I want to get back to them once I'm free of all real Avatar projects. It should be easier.
And I'm hoping to fix your sketch up to make it even prettier :)

Awwww... Those are some lovely pcitures they gave you. I'm sorry you're feeling so sad. :(

I know I don't often leave messages, but I just wanted to reiterate again that I do love your work, and I hope things go well for you on your move back to Montreal!! Good luck to you!

I'm drinking some Jasmine tea as I write this, you will be missed! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sorry you're last night with us was filled with so much debating!

Thank you so much for the tea, it'll help me as I write RM. ::internet hug:: XD

I had an absolutely lovely evening with everyone. I didn't mind the debating parts at all, it gave me new insight into the film, another way of looking at it I had not really seen.

Glad you enjoy the tea! If you have a favorite, I could bring you some more come comicon time :)

Ahhh, all good things must end...even the REALLY, REALLY good things. I'm sure you had a blast while doing it and have many happy memories now.

Hey, besides yourself, who else from the Avatar crew will be coming to Comic Con?
rufftoon
Jul. 1st, 2007 09:20 pm (UTC)
Definitely some very excellent memories.

A bunch of the Avatar crew will be at comicon, but not necessarily on the panel: Juan, another board artist is supposed to be around, a few people from the production end of thing, a few directors...I know Giancarlo would love to meet you, KimchiCrusader and Isaia. We gotta organise a little meet-up of sorts or something.

Leaving 3 weeks before San Diego? I guess you're not going this year?

give me a call when you get it. we'll get a brunch.
rufftoon
Jul. 1st, 2007 09:55 pm (UTC)
I am going to San Diego, and possibly returning for the Avatar wrap up party later this year. I got to hang out more with the Avatar crew- too fun a bunch to miss, and there will be quite a few of them at SDCC.
Brunch would be super nice...how 'bout next weekend or sumthing? Whatever is good for you :)

High fivin' you right back, oh you who also share many Avatar secrets :D
Safe flight, plus two days to recuperate. I'm almost back on regular East Coast time. Definitely looking forward to seeing you at Comicon!

*worship* the circle is complete, you have returned as the master. XD plz allow me the privilege to drool over Jet.

I still feel very much the student, having been humbled by the skills of the masters at the studio.
And that Jet deserves drooling (thank yooooou Joaquim!)
