A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away...

First Days & First Post...

As a kid I can remember my first day of school, the excitement
and the wonder of experiencing something new and adventurous.

So when I started my first job working in the Animation Industry it reminded me of what it was to be a kid again and to have the opportunity to experience something adventurous and new in a new light, it was pretty much like being a kid again.

I had kicked the idea around a while (a few years now) about setting up a blog where I could share my personal experiences as I work in animation and try to figure out what I'm doing as an artist in this crazy industry. It's my hope to share some of the challenges I've faced getting my "foot in the door" and what it's taken to keep it firmly wedged in.

Currently I am lucky enough to say I am working for one of the best animation studios around Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. , although not the most well known I'm sure you've heard of the guy who started it. Yep, I work for George Lucas and for the past two months I've been working as a 3D Story Artist on the television series
The Clone Wars. It's been better than any dream I could come up with and it's been better than anything I could possibly imagine!

So here's to our first days and to many more adventures in life and animation!

Wow, thanks for mosey-ing over to my blog. So "you're" the one creating these animations?? I've been using them as reference for many of the upcoming pieces I'm doing. We must stay in contact!
