Also, a quote from Jim Hull's Seward Street Blog when he went to visit Ollie Johnston's place:
"But the one thing he did say, that still stands out for me was, after taking a look at each one of us, he said with a tinge of creative envy, "Look at you guys...you've got the whole world ahead of you..."
"And ever since, I haven't wanted to waste a single moment."
Really great quote - its true - if you can do something, why not do it? There are probably a bunch of people who wish they could, so live it out.

I've been doing a bunch of collaged faces while in class. The first done in blue pencil and the second in ballpoint pen. I've noticed doing these really forces you to change up shapes and proportions so that you don't get a repetition on the same page of the same type of face. I can see an improvement from the first to the second one, so I'm going to keep doing these and trying different styles, types and shapes - as much as I possibly can. Now, to character design!

Here's a character I made for myself, and a potential story idea. Again, using the poly lasso and paint bucket, I'm planning on using him to learn flash in the summer - he seems very suited for it. Here's the thief's nemesis - the short, wily Inspector Briggs. I'm developing a little short story to animate soon. A model sheet will come soon of this character. Any comments and crits are greatly appreciated.
