Sorry everyone, no animation stuff today! I've been spending a littl too much time preparing tutorials, writing a script and designing my own film that i needed to spend time with the little lady! So, she had the day off and we just had fun! We got ton's of gift cards for Christmas, so basically everything we ate or drank today was free! We went to Mount Pinos, and we romped around in the snow. Reminded us of the good ol' days in Chicago. My wife and i have known each other since we were 11 and were growing up in Chicago. So yeah, we played in the snow. So fun! Took some great pic's, ate some lunch, warmed up and headed out towards the coast for dinner. We got a sweet gift card to this authentic Italian place... was so flippin good guys. it was right on the beach in Malibu, and completely free for us!
Ya know, for you married men who are animators out there you know how tough it can be to pull yourself away from you work sometimes. Today was an abaolute necessity for just that reason.
I love the light in this one... nuff said!
Anyway, enuff of my personal stuff. I start teaching at CalArts tomorrow. I am going to do an animation demo for the class, so if it turns out the way i think it should i am going to scan in the animation and post it for wednesday if i can. in the mean time, that tutorial on the walk is coming. I'm just putting everything together right now! Oh, and thank you to everyone that has been nice enough to send me an e-mail and tell mehow much the like the blog and my work. it's encouraging! take it easy everyone!
