I have been busy with life and stopped blogging as you can tell... Hope to do some re-vamping of my stuff and tell you what I have been doing in the meantime. Also I need to remember how to post things on the blog as well. It will take a while but I hope you interweb peps like it.

First off let me apologize to those who like to read my blog and say I have been busy with school work as well as many project that I am going to undertake. Another gem was found at my local library about the really awesome Milt Gross. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Mr. Gross's work I suggest that you check out JohnK's Blog http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/ as well as www.animationarchive.org for more info. Here is a quick run down of what I know of the man himself. He was a Jewish New Yorker that grew up in the Bronx in 1895 and worked for the New York Journal creating a wonderful zany narrative comic strips throughout his amazing career. Here are some of the strips he made: Phool Phan Phables, Gross Exaggerations, Dave's Delicatessen, Count Screwloose of Tooloose, Babbling Brooks, Otto And Blotto, That's My Pop!, the Banana Oil! strip along with countless others. I hope you enjoy a sample of the cool things that are in this novel with no words. Sorry for the crude scans I need to figure out how to fix that in the future.

I feel really bad that I have not posted for a while as one of my avid reader has pointed out. Being the sort of geek that I am, I am going to add some nice touches to this particular Blog. Call it a Blog makeover if you will. Recently I am taking a Portfolio Fundamentals class that will add real "class" to how I am seen in the professional world of animation. There might be some posts that will show things that I am working on for my classes. So stay tuned and keep your hopes up!
Not only that I will at some time be posting cool doodles in this particular post.

Long time since I had a birthday....at home that is. Had a lot of friends that were close by come over. That was yesterday though is when I had the celebration. Birthday's usually get screwed up for me and that is what I did today and yesterday. For some reason I seem to kill the mood of the party. It might have to do with my personality and too much Dos Equis with Smirnoff. Ooopss!! You didn't hear that from me. The spirit of giving is a good thing so here are some cool pictures for everyone to enjoy:
Here is something that I have been meaning to give to my main group of inspirationers:
The colors themselves look better on the paper and I will try to work on a better version. Let's see in the comments if you know who is who.

There are many links on the side of my blog that are linked to many talented individuals with which I have great admirations for one such individual is the amazing story spinner Eddie Fitzgerald. You might know him as one of the many talented story men on the Ren and Stimpy series also I believe that he made a short by the name of Paranoid Worm or something to that effect. Sorry if I screwed that one up Uncle Eddie. His vast knowledge on the topic of art is most commendable not to mention a great read. In his latest post he has posted some pictures to use for as reference. The one posted looks in a way like me. I could be streching it but hey that's what animators do right? Here is a link to Uncle Eddie's blog http://uncleeddiestheorycorner.blogspot.com/
I highly doubt that you will ever see a photograph of me on this site since I don't like pictures much. I think drawing speak louder than words. And no I am not grotesque like this:
