Hello All!

I am back from California. CTN-X was informative, inspirational and exciting. The weekend was packed with workshops, lectures and portfolio reviews. I had a lot of great reviews from people and studios that I have respected for years and finished off the weekend with a tour of Walt Disney Studios and Feature Animation. I want to give a big 'Thank You' to everyone who made this weekend and this event possible. It provides a great new experience for people interested in commercial character animation and offers talent and lectures you would not see at OAIF or Comic-Con.

I made some suggested revisions to the layouts for Pest Control and compiled them all into a reel. It is not up to the standard I am willing to post yet so for now I will leave you with my character action analysis. I am testing out the rat, seeing if I can fine-tune him to a easier character to animate.

Run fatty, Run!

Finally, here is a snippet of the layout work I have been doing. I have actually been doing a lot of other drawings but keep finishing every post with "layouts coming soon", so figured I should hold off on other posts until I posted some layouts.

I should be posting some of my better life drawings from this yearand posting some animal sketches from the Royal Winter Fair.

Lastly, I will be in Burbank attending the CTN animation expo this weekend. It was very much a last minute plan but I am very excited to talk to employers, attend the events and see everything this expo has to offer. If anyone is going or will be in the area, feel free to drop me a line. For more info about the expo go HERE!

EDIT: I updated my online portfolio. GO CHECK IT OUT!
