I'm off to Chicago tomorrow morning and then on to Detroit to visit family for Christmas. I'll be back in LA for New Years. Merry Christmas!

The film took in an estimated 45 million dollars at the box office this weekend. Its a very strong showing for a film most figured would only gross half of that in total.
I'm glad to have had a part in this film. Seeing it in the theater with a hundred screaming kids was great! They loved it. It felt good to know that someone was enjoying all the hard work put into this film. That was rewarding. Thats why I love animation! It reaches people. It doesnt matter to me if those people happen to be 3 year olds.
The film is actually better than you would expect. Like I said, its nothing spectacular to be sure, but give it a chance before you bash it. You might be surprised.

So I finally "finished" my first ever hand drawn, 2D animation. I took advantage of the 11 second club contest as a motivation and produced this little piece of work over a couple weeks last month. It was quite a challenge. My final score for the contest wasnt as high as I had hoped, but it was my first time entering the contest too. It was a good learning experience and I got to draw alot. I am thinking about continuing work on it sometime in the future to make it good enough to put on my new reel.
