CTN EXPO 2011: Be the Artist

Posted on:  October 19, 2011

My talk BE THE ARTIST: Cultivating your Artistic Identity is scheduled for 4:30pm on Saturday, November 19th in the main screening room at this year’s CTN ANIMATION EXPO in Burbank, California.  The talk will center on what it means to be an independent artist and will both be philosophical and practical.  It promises to be an informative and hopefully, inspirational hour for everyone.

Hope to see you there!

Illustration.org Interview

Posted on:  January 5, 2011

Here’s a short interview I did with ILLUSTRATION.ORG during last November’s CTN Expo.  It reaffirmed two things for me:  1.)  My fat bulbous head needs it’s own zip code and, 2) I really mimic a Wibble Wobble really well. (watch that head shake!)

Listen to me talk about magic potions and advising everyone to act like kids. (I mean it figuratively of course but I you want to scream for mommy, go right ahead)

Many thanks to Santosh Oommen and the gang at illustration (dot) org for the opportunity.
