The Nature of Ambition
Al, Mike and Mort.
My first animation teacher Albert Baruch just sent me this picture of me with him and legendary Mad Magazine Illustrator Mort Drucker circa 1994. Al brought me along as a guest to a meeting of the Berndt Toast Gang, the Long Island Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. I remember it being a truly inspirational experience.
I never even knew this picture existed until it showed up in the mail. :)
While I don’t usually make personal posts on this blog unrelated to animation, I wanted to get as many eyes as possible on this message.
Our good friend Nina has been suffering from Lymphoma and is currently looking for a bone marrow match. To see if you could be a possible match all you need to do is order a test kit from here and do a quick swab on your cheek. It’s a quick and painless procedure. Jen and I both did it and it took less than 10 minutes total to order the kit, fill out the forms, swab and return.

Making of HTTYD from a few years back. I’m not sure why it wasn’t posted online earlier.
Last shot of the doc is some ref I shot for seq 1800.
I sat down with the dudes from Robot Chicken for a QA today at @DWAnimation. @SethGreen, @wizmatts Matt Senreich, Eric Towner and John Harvatine IV showed us some footage from season six and then got into some hysterical production stories.
These guys really have a good thing going. They’ve managed to establish a creative free-for-all. Hearing about it was a truly inspiring experience.
