Just a quick hello and thank you to all the folks I had the pleasure of meeting at CTN! It's events like CTN that help connect and reconnect us to the thing we all love, art and animation!!! Keep creating and keep going forward!! in a few days, hopefully before Thanksgiving, I'll post a blogroll of all those wonderful folks I had the chance to see.

In the meantime, here is a photo and sketch of me done by the incredible James Gurney!!!

This photo is a collective sketch we did with my good friends Leonardo Olea, Francisco Herrera, Florian Satzinger, Greg Baldwin and Dave Guertin of CreatureBox, and Jose Lopez at our post dinner. The greatest guys ever!!!

Old Quickie thumbs

These are very quick thumbs from older shows. It's always fun to explore, finding shapes and some possibly cool compositions!
