I seriously saw this on Saturday while driving down Glendale Blvd. in Silver Lake.
It looks so refreshing doesn't it?

The Bernstein's Family Dog

I was with my sister and Dad yesterday evening at the Vet. Our family dog was on his 16th year and suffering from internal bleeding. I drew these while we said our goodbyes. He was somewhat alert and did pick his head up and raise his brows when I entered the room. I love that he had a little spot on his nose that was shaped like a heart. It was a little faded from age...but it was still there.
I was there when my Dad brought him home for us in 1992 and I was with him at the end. He was a great dog.... loving, friendly, and always curious. He was still digging through the kitchen garbage just two weeks ago. He was also a good dancer. You could hold him by his front two paws and do a little tango.
Goodbye Corkscrew J. Cork. You will be missed.

He's coming.....June 6th!

A new trailer for Kung Fu Panda was released today! Check it out! I was an animator on this movie for over a year and am so happy it's finally coming out. The whole crew did an outstanding job...I must say, there's some exceptional talent here at Dreamworks.

And lucky me! They used 4 shots of mine.

1. Tailung on his knees, breaking out of chains.
2. The goose that says "We're dead..."
3. Shifu hitting a giant rock with mystical blue kung fu light!
4. Tailung running on all 4's and leaping off the bridge.

Poll: More disapprove of Bush than any other president

By Paul Steinhauser / CNN

WASHINGTON DC -- A new poll suggests that President Bush is the most unpopular president in modern American history.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday indicates that 71 percent of the American public disapprove of how Bush is handling his job as president.

"No president has ever had a higher disapproval rating in any CNN or Gallup Poll; in fact, this is the first time that any president's disapproval rating has cracked the 70 percent mark," said Keating Holland, CNN's polling director.

"Bush's approval rating, which stands at 28 percent in our new poll, remains better than the all-time lows set by Harry Truman and Richard Nixon [22 percent and 24 percent, respectively], but even those two presidents never got a disapproval rating in the 70s," Holland said. "The previous all-time record in CNN or Gallup polling was set by Truman, 67 percent disapproval in January 1952."

While Gallup polling goes back to the 1930s, it wasn't until the Truman years that they began surveying monthly approval ratings.

CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider adds, "He is more unpopular than Richard Nixon was just before he resigned from the presidency in August 1974."

President Nixon's disapproval rating in August 1974 stood at 66 percent.

The poll also indicates that support for the war in Iraq has never been lower. Thirty percent of those questioned favored the war, while 68 percent opposed it.

"Americans are growing more pessimistic about the war," Holland said. "In January, nearly half believed that things were going well for the U.S. in Iraq; now that figure has dropped to 39 percent."

The numbers on the Iraq war come on the five-year anniversary of Bush's "Mission Accomplished" moment on board the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, when he proclaimed that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended."

The record-low support for the war in a CNN poll could be one reason behind the president's unpopularity, but it probably is not the only one.

"Support for the war, the assessment of the economy and approval of Mr. Bush are all about the same -- bad," Schneider said.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll was conducted by telephone from Monday through Wednesday among 1,008 adult Americans.

The poll's sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
