Thanksgiving

Well the time to stuff our faces is almost here. I have been eating healthy and exercising daily for months in preparation for this week. There are many things to be thankful for..... such as the Democrats taking taking over Washington and Gris Grimly's freakin awesome movie that i got to see last week. Being a HUGE horror movie fan I can be quite harsh when reviewing new horror movies, Gris's movie didn't let me down. It wasn't the scariest movie in the world, but it was obvious that this was not the attempt of the director. Visually it was stunning and i totally dug the choppy editing. Overall i was very pleased........... So pleased that i bought an original piece at the showing. This is my second original of Gris's that I have collected over the last years. It is an awesome Ink wash of of a ghoul. The picture of the ghoul was used as the label for some liquor in the short film.
Lots more to say... very little time. I have some new sketches that will be posted soon. turkey

Where did the time go?

Well life has been a little crazy.....as usuall. I have been working on my "Frankenstein" series, but not nearly as much as i would like. I visited Cal State Fullerton recently to review some student reels and to inform them about the Apprenticeship program at Nickelodeon. I think it went really well.
The studio has been a little crazy lately as we begin animation. I am also preparing to go to India later this month to work with two of the studios that are helping us with the production. I am looking forward to the trip, but I am relizing more and more how much work we will actually be doing out there. I will have a couple days though to explore my surroundings and get a feel for the culture.
I am really excited about tomorrow night! I will be attending the release party and showing of, "Cannibal Flesh Riot", it is Gris Grimley's new live action short. I have been a huge fan of Gris's for about 5 years now. I think the event might be sold out, but there will be a second viewing thursday as well. Tickets can be bought through his website at www.madcreator.com. Well, enough rambling for now.
