KAdE Animation Show in Amersfoort

We’re part of a group exhibition in Amersfoort, Netherlands called MOVE On…! 100 Years of Animation Art.

A few days ago, they sent me some pictures of the exhibition since I cannot attend. I love that our puppets are in drinking glasses.

Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival w/ Maison des Scenaristes

I attended author-to-producer meeting organized by Maison des Scenaristes (Screen writing organization in Paris) at Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival.
The goal was to present my next short film and feature idea in the hopes to find a producer / production company in France. Some producers were interested in my project so we’ll continue the conversations via email & skype and hopefully something will happen!

Here are some pictures that Maison des Scenaristes took during the meeting.

More drawings & pics coming soon….

Lunch Time Talk @MICA MFA Illustration

Over the weekend was an intensive animation workshop with the MFA Illustration students at Maryland Institute College of Art.
Monday was a full day of crit. (Although most students were half sleeping due to staying up all night animating. Sorry.)
In middle of that was a lunch time lecture in the Lazarus auditorium.

One of the talented students, Shreyas Krishnan made a lovely drawing of me. HOW NICE! I always draw people but I don’t get many people drawing me, so that made me extremely happy.

MFA Illustration was tweeting during the lecture and I only read them at 7pm, after I went home and did some work. Made me think…maybe it’s about time for me to get a smart phone so I can interact in “real time”.
