some EXCITING news!...
There's a new animation book on the scene! That's right!
"Your Career in Animation: How to Survive And Thrive"
The author of the book, David Levy, interviewed a BUNCH of industry professionals, picked their brains nice and clean, and blended it all up into written form for us to enjoy! :)
Dave is a friend of mine, and he was my animation director last year over at Cartoon Pizza on 'Pinky Dinky Doo'... He really knows his stuff, and I personally cannot wait to get my hands on the book! .....
Oh, I almost forgot!... I AM one of the 'industry professionals' interviewed in the book!... So give it a read, and only THEN can you make fun of me! ;)
Here's the link @ amazon;
... I mean, just look at that pic ... EVERYBODY enjoys a good animation book!
Thanks guys! :)

... an apple a day!...
Here's the first rough for a little series of paintings
that I'm workin' on... each painting is a fairly tiny 3.5 x 5,
so I'm trying to keep things as simple, direct and FUN as possible!
Oh, the theme for the series involves children and their
aversion to healthy foods! (aka FRUITS and VEGGIES) ...

Renegade's Elmo Aardvark
Wednesday, May 10, 2006
A couple' weeks ago, I got a great opportunity to do some freelance work for
Renegade Animation. I don't take a whole lot of freelance nowadays, as the fulltime
gig at AC is keeping me very busy, but I just HAD to jump at the chance to work
with Renegade! I have really admired their work for a long time now, especially their
wonderfully designed and animated commercial work, and it was so nice to finally get
a chance to do some stuff with them.
I just sketched-up a little drawing of one of their older characters, Elmo Aardvark... He is an AWESOME piece of animation design, and my fun little send-up doesn't quite do him justice!
I would like to do a finished tribute piece of Elmo... I'll get on that!
Also, I hafta' add Renegade to my links, as well as AC and some other blogs and sites that I've been meaning to get up there!
See ya soon!
