First things first:

...today is buttfacemakani 's birthday. Best wishes to you! may your talent bring you very awesome work, fun, and may inspiration keep coming your way.

Happy B-Day Makani

In other news...I'll be changing job in about a month. I was offered the chance to join a very talented team of artists over at Dreamworks studio (the Big Leagues!). I'll have to do my best, and not make a fool of myself over there now. Eeep!

Kung Fu Bending

I am very sad to leave the Penguin team over at Nickelodeon. Also very talented people, and the studio has been nothing short of awesome too. Great, inspiring people are there. But it was an opportunity that may not happen again, so I jumped on it while I could.
Plus, I'm not getting any younger. Gotta grab at those straws before those genius kids come around and kick my butt around too much.


...













And for no particular reason, that Cintiq doodle just emerged in a moment of distraction.
Oh Crap

Don't ask.

Congratulations on the Dreamworks gig! Must be exciting!

I totally love your Panda meets Airbender doodle. The expression of manic glee on his face and the body language---PRICELESS. This is the reason I love you what you do!

Horny Zhao is hopeless. XD

Exciting and slightly stressful. I should manage.
As for Zhao...guess he'll have to wait until the mood passes or something XD

Congrats, that is a dream job! You'll do great, no worries. ^_^

So, maybe you can answer a question for me. As someone in the business is it as difficult to get in as my professors make it sound? I'll be graduating next year with a degree in animation, and I'm a little worried. ^^;

It can be difficult, and it can be easy too! It depends on timing and circumstances. You may have to start at smaller companies, make contacts, and make your way from there.
You may arrive as a company has no projects starting. You just have to keep going until something happens. Be flexible, in the first few years. Be ready to move and go where the work is.
