Much Ado about Nothing

Hi all you bloggers out there! Guess what? Flushed Away is a job is done and I can breathe again! I feel like I've been underwater for so long and now I've come to the surface!
I'm on Vacation right now and I have to admit,
I LOVE doing NOTHING!!!!

The photo above was taken on the beach in San Simeon where I was camping with friends. See how the sand is lit? I put my camera on top of my lantern to get that cool effect.

Looky what I Gots!

I went to the JOHN K lecture last week at Van Eaton Gallery and look what I scored! Original artwork for free! The talk was great and made me think of all the funny drawings I used to do before computer animation entered my system. Now I'm all ones and zeros, but soon I will unleash the fury of my hand drawn skills upon the world and make them laugh and gurgle and have brain orgasms. Gulp, I hope! Marlo Meekins and Eddie Fitzgerald were there as well!

Here we have a portrait of me...look at those speedos! Wow!

Well looky here...hmm don't know who that handsome devil is. I'll have to look him up on google.

Boy do I look intelligent here don't I? Eddie has the best laugh ever...I showed him my drawings of him and his laughter resonated deep within my heart. I'll post some of my drawings of these 3 cartoonists soon.

Here's my buddy JJ Villard. If you don't know him, well you soon will. He's a force that will knock you down, turn your brain inside out and question the meaning of life.

Here we have the Swiss, Simon Otto...currently a Supervising Animator on Flushed Away

Simon deep in thought..thinking of soccer most likely.

Jason Carter, looking disheveled on a friday afternoon. Crunch time on a film will do this to everyone I'm sad to say.

Eric Deuel getting ready for his part in Pirates of the Caribbean it's true folks, it's very true. There are a bunch of bearded blokes walking around here at DW just waiting to be extras.
There's a little scooter on his shoulder because the day before I drew this, he bought one.
