Congratulations to Richard Kelly, of Prickly Pear Productions whose film 'Walter' won best Independent Animation at the Canadian International Animation Film festival. I did the background work on it and Ed comped in after fx. Good stuff anyway! Fair play man! Enjoy the celebrations!

The pics are a couple of a batch of illustrations I did for Zink films, for a website. I think it's alright to post'em as they're up on the web now. I've removed the company logo just in case. Anyways, just getting back to finishing this board after a couple of days getting my accounts together. Think I'll break that credit card. Dangerous in my hands!!!

I received an email from a Stardust co-worker, Steffen Harder, on the passing of Thilo Rex, our old Potsdam boss. I thought I'd post it on the off chance that any of my ex Stardust colleagues visit the blog. He was a good man and will be missed, dying at the young age of 51. He was found in his apartment following two days' unanswered phonecalls. I didn't know him as well as the rest of the crew that stayed on during the financial difficulties the studio was going through at the time, but I will say that my memories of the time there have entertained buddies and colleagues in pubs, bars or wherever I've ended up since. He was one of the great characters I've come across in the industry since I began my career.

we had a light dusting of snow this mornin, worse elsewhere in the country. Anyway quick warm up in sketchbook pro - Coco and Chopper, think Coco's earned herself a visit to the vet, there's some foul stench coming from her mouth at the moment, must need a tooth pulled or something.
