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!!

Hello there X. I didn't realize the numeric significance! Wow! Thanks for pointing it out. Makes it even more special.

I have an old poster from 1983 that I believe has your signature on it. It is a mischievous looking Notre Dame leprechaun laying down smoking a pipe with the letters ND in the smoke. Will send a picture of it as soon as I can figure out how to attach it. It is my husbands favorite poster which was in a cheap frame in the basement. I just had it beautifully matted and framed for him. Everyone who sees it loves how unique it is. Let me know if it was you

Hi Unknown. I'm the artist behind the Notre Dame poster you're referring to. Thank you for matting and framing it. Very happy you and others still enjoy it.

Hey Charles, the name is "CatBit", been incredibly interested in a lot of your work and I've been wanting to ask, if you were interested in being a guest on a podcast I run with some friends for an interview with you? We'd love to have you on and would be thrilled if you agreed to it... Apologies if I'm bothering you on this front, sir
