Catching Up

Wow, I can't believe my last post was in June!!!! So much has happened since then. Ralph has wrapped and the party was amazing. I've been enjoying funemployment since August, finally bought myself a cintiq, and just finished my first painting with it a moment ago. Woo! I wanted to spend my unemployment time teaching myself how to paint, but it seems my lessons have waited until the end of my break to actually start occurring. Up until now I've been more focused on experiencing life for the first time since I started working and it's great! I feel like I actually appreciate and fully experience the days as they go by, rather than time being numbers on a clock that I'm racing against to get my shots done.

My break will be over soon though, since towards the end of next month I'll be starting at Sony Imageworks in Vancouver on the Smurfs 2! As nice as it was to take it easy, I'm really looking forward to resume working. I can only be idle for so long before getting anxious about my lack of work. I want to get as much experience as I can in the hopes of being able to qualify for a work visa for Weta, so I can work on The Hobbit!

Also, also, here's a look at all of my work from Alvin 3.
