Better Days Ahead

Greetings to you wonderful people who follow my blog. Thank you as it has been my privilege to have your attention. I hope you're all doing well and staying healthy during these challenging times. You and your loved ones. I've been very busy since the year turned. As with everything else the changes taking place have affected what I do as well. With the adjustments I'm making I feel they are positive ones that will lead to an improved way of doing things. 

In the meantime here's a little message from Crash and Spyro as they team up to offer a word of encouragement. Stay strong friends! This will not last forever. It will pass. There are better days ahead that we can look forward to!

My school The Animation Academy is 22 years old

Thought I'd share this milestone with all you great folks. It was on this evening in 1998 at this very hour in the back room of the Coral Cafe in Burbank California that The Animation Academy held its first session. We had a sold out class of 20 students.

The Academy has been a major influence in the animation industry in that time. We continue to have a positive impact in many ways. Especially in people's lives.
Celebrating 2 decades and 2 years of great experiences!

Keep Creating!!

20 Years to the Day - The Beginning of Jak and Daxter

A few days ago I realized something. That in early January 2000 I signed the contract to begin work on a project that would become Jak and Daxter. I searched my files and found the contract. The date was January 5.

So this is it friends! It was 20 years ago on this day I signed the deal to get started on "Project Y". The rest as they say is video game history. This is a graphic I created in honor of the occasion. I plan on featuring a lot of the unseen art throughout the year.
