I have some crazy news this week. I got a call from one of the most amazing studios out there working on character animation, RHYTHM AND HUES STUDIOS!!! The news came to me last week. I was doing my laundry (my cell phone was not on me at the time) and to my surprise I saw a missed call from L.A. when I came back. Once I heard my voice mail I was shocked! Rhythm and Hues Studios called me! As you are reading this, you might be asking yourself; so now what?
Well, I am happy to say that I will be participating in the Animation Apprentice program. It’s been a week since the great news and I still can’t believe it. I am sorry if I haven’t been posting recently but I have been busy packing up my stuff for L.A. The Animation Apprentice program runs for about a month. I can already imagine the great advice and experience that I will learn while I am down there; I can’t wait!!! I hope to connect to the internet once I arrive to L.A. so that I can continue to post while I am out there. I hope to bring fun drawings, news and pics about my journey in So-Cal these coming weeks! :)
I also want to thank all of those who have given me and continuing to give me great feedback on both my drawings and animations. A huge shout out to all the Mentors and Students on Animation Mentor! I also want to thank the OSG, you know you are; without your support when I was feeling doubt or have troubles, you guys where always there to listen and help. I also want to thank my roommates with all the help and support; as well as others who gave me support along this journey.

Keep working hard and stay true to your dreams! They do come true sooner or later.

Maybe its just the great news but I felt like drawing a dude on stilts, go figure. :)
Have a wonderful week everyone! I hope to have the next post from L.A.

Check out his site, if you haven't trust me you will thank me in the morning, this dude is all about drawing! Speaking of inspiration, as I was saying I got tagged. There seems to be this thing going around the blogs this weekend about going and tagging someone to draw 7 random things, anything you want. it is for fun. Then drop that tag on another 7 artist and so and so forth. I think this was started on Alina Chau's site. Great idea Alina! She is an amazing artist with wonderful colors and a great style! Be sure to check out her site

Amazing artist on the blogs. Speaking of which be sure to check out Ana Banana site, she inspired me to do a sketchy dark piece. You will know what I mean when you see her mermaid post. She is an amazing artist, with such wonderful creativity, style and colors, the triple threat :) Be sure to check out here site, you will be inspired! Go

For anyone wondering if I have more artist to speak great things about I will on future posts, I don't want to leave anyone out, because I am inspired everyday by all the amazing artist out there in the blogs that keep me picking up my pencil everyday with inspiration and ambition to become a better artist. :)

Well that is it for me, I will be sure to post up more cool news as it comes, certainly on the next post. Quote of the day goes to Benjamin Franklin, "Energy and persistence conquer all things."

Have a great weekend!
Here are my seven for the tag game :)

~Saying goodbye to the world of CRT~

Hey peeps! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Nothing much to say other than my CRT monitor breaking over the weekend. Yup, the old CRT died on me, or is dying on me as I type. its a shame, its a good size screen; but alas I must let it go and get another monitor. I think it is time for me to say goodbye to the world of CRT and move into the LCD realm.

So this week I mixed it up a bit, I have a dancing panda, a kid, funny looking dog with spots, a little skully dude and a creature type gal thingy I drew back in the day. :P I have another fun quote for the week by William Feather, "One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure." Don't sweat the small stuff , learn from it and move on because you never know when you might be called upon to be part of a cool adventure. Have a GREAT week everyone! :)

~Its been getting warm~

Hey Fellow Bloggers!
Glad to be back to cooler temperatures here in SF. It was getting really warm these past few days. Now, don't get me wrong I don't mind it warm or hot, but when it gets warm outside, its like a living inferno/hell in the apartment; do to bad air flow and the sun hitting this side of the building all day. So, I was like man, I wish I was at the beach or something, but instead I just drew a gal in her bikini in honor of the warm weather :P

What you looking at? Hehe...I also wanted to post some old eyes I drew a while back as well. Eyes are so important and they can say it all. Eyes can show so many emotions. And yeah, those are some bushy eyebrows :P

I passed by this great quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, "No one can make you inferior without your consent." Man, those are some powerful words. Don't let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do. The thing I noticed about those who have been successful or accomplished in both life and professionally is that they don't let those negative people get the best of them. If you have a dream, then prove it to them, no, better yet, prove it to yourself! Once you have the drive and will you are truly free from negativity and others that are just way too scared to try. So , with that said, go out there and draw, animate, paint, study; whatever it is you need to become whom you want to be. Go after that dream, whatever it may be. Remember that perseverance goes a long way in this industry and in life; also not to mention practice! :)

Another great quote, this one by Bill Blackman,'Great changes may not happen right away, but with effort even the difficult may become easy.'
