New JOB at Hawaii Animation Studios!!!















So since sept it has been one of the hardest times in my life, I found myself put in a situation that I thought I could not dig myself out of. The only thing I could do since sept was work! Re work and then re work it again, looking at the shots of my demo reel, really taking a hard look at it, and tweaking and asking people's opinion of how it could be better. I had alot of ups and downs and leads that turned flat, and finally landed a gig, with what seems to be a great team of people that I look so forward to working with and learing from. But the hard parts not over, lol now comes trying to pack up one life to start a new one, and this is proving to be yet another one of my greatest challenges in life. :) Things are a bit different now because I am in love and have a gf, and we also have my lil dog sketch, so planning this move is driving me a bit nuts, I thought by now we would have those Star Trek Teleporters! With money tight and time not on my side its going to take some creative thinking, but dammit I am doing it! In the packing process I ran across some old drawings and sketches and work from when I worked on some men in black casino game stuff, so in an attempt to calm my nerves and stress, I scanned a few and am posting them. I can't wait to see what kind of things in Hawaii inspire me to do. As with any job but especially this one, I hope to not let them down in their decision to make me apart of the team. Aloha Gainesville! 2010 is going to be an amazing year!
