Tomorrow is the 18th Annual Dustys. My Animated thesis "First Step in The Big Top" will be at 8:00pm. It'll be cool to see my film on the big screen. Next Monday is the Award Ceremony. Will I win? Stranger things have happened

Yesterday was my last day of school. I thought it would be a week, later, but WHOOSH, it snuck up on me! I can't believe I have no more test, or papers, or to see teachers, or grades, or anything. It's kinda scary. Now I have to look for a job...a REAL job. will I do it? Will I find work? Will I pursue my dreams for animation, cartooning, and possibly voice over work? Will things turn out ok? WILL IT?..........eh. I'll be fine. No More School!

These are two pictures from this year's comic-con. Truthfully, I'm not that big of a comic fan. I just appreciate the art form. The best part about this year's comic-con was taking pictures with two of my favorite cartoonist/animators Kyle Baker and Bill Plympton. Kyle Baker is the guy on top(we both wanted to make funny faces). He does a comic book about his family entitled "The Bakers", plus he did a newly updated version of "Plastic Man". Even more rubbery than Jack Cole's original comic!(no disrespect to Jack Cole because he was a great artist) The one at the bottom, Bill Plympton, is a pretty risque and totally out there independent animator whose has made more than a dozen animated shorts, most notably "Your Face, Guard Dog, Drawing Lessons#2, and 25 Ways to Quit Smoking". It was great to take pictures with them. The guy on the left of the Bill Plympton pic is my childhood friend, Chris Romans. He's a kick ass guy. Thanks for bringing you camera, Chris!
Does Anyone know who Peter Lorre is? He was a really cool actor during the golden age of hollywood movies. He usually was typcasted as a villain in movies such as "Maltese Falcon, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Casablana" and others. Although he did play a leading role as Mr.Moto, the sly oriental detective. I really want to see "Mad Love" because he plays a bald, evil scientist, but I can't find any copies of it. If anyone could help me, much appreciated
I'm really looking forward to the premiere of Spiderman 3. I can't believe my all time favorite villain, Venom, is in it! He's like Spiderman's evil twin, but he's so much more than that. Alot fanboys are disappointed with movie Venom's look, but I don't care. I'm happy he's IN the movie. I can't wait! Now I sound like a fanboy!
