Time Flies When Your Having Fun
I hadn't realized that it's been over 9 months since I'd updated anything here on the good ol' webby-website. So here's a news update.
Fate has brought me into a new chapter of my life, as I've parted ways with the land of Neopia
. I've left many talented people and good friends behind to start a new journey and take my first big step into the television animation universe.
In January 2008 I was brought on board for season 12 of the television series South Park
. It's been a very crazy experience and it's taken me away from the "real world" for the past 4 months. It's an ardous job, but well worth it and tons of fun. I've met some really awesome people and already learned a lot about the industry, myself, and the importance of deoderant in a small space with 6 big guys (not to mention scented candles after Taco Tuesdays). I've been lucky enough to be asked back for the second half of Season 12 and look forward to all the craziness that awaits me when I return in the fall.
(Oh, and just in case you were curious, we really do
make each episode in 6 days. We start on Thursday and finish on Wednesday morning, just in time for it to air on TV that same night. Super crazy stuff, huh?)
And now, after 4 months of craziness, I get my first hiatus EVER
!!! 4 months of rest, relaxation, taking a class at Art Center, painting, possibly making a new film, rebuilding my freshman film, and re-educating myself on the fine art of storyboarding. Good times. :)
Now on to the 'real' news, as this section is supposed to be about site updates as well. Over in the Gallery Shows
section, a new painting has been added. I took part in Power in Numbers 3 over at Gallery Nucleus.
This year the show was benefiting the Make-a-Wish Foundation and was overjoyed when I found out my piece had sold. So check out "Angler Fishy" when you get a chance, and there are still other great pieces avaiable online if you feel so inclined as to pick up a pretty picture and donate to a great cause at the same time.
