This picture has nothing to do with what i am about to write, but i thought it was a really pretty one.
I just came back from lunch with Tony DeRosa, most of you animators out there know him. He was a lead animator on a whole slew of characters while at Disney like Bernard, Nala, Molier, the Sprite in Fantasia, and now most recently the lead for George in Curious George. I met Tony back on Looney Tunes: Back in Action. He was a good person for me to work with, taught me a lot about simplifying and making things clear.
Just came back from his house where he's working on animating some stuff for Eric Goldberg. Hopefully i'll be able to pick somestuff up from him too. But we just had a great time talking about art, animation, life, faith. Not like we were sharing cleanex or anything, there's just an unspoken bond between people in animation. We relate differently... he's an inspiring guy who just is doing what he loves. That's really appealing to me, simple passion and not being affraid to follow it. He doesn't toot his own horn, and i think he's under-valued personally.
Other than that i'm just sorta chillin out today, doodling away! maybe, if i feel like there's something worth showing i'll post it later tonight. later!
