Watchers

I rarely have the time or ability to make an actual written-with-words entry on my blog. Most of the time I just post the same drawings that I post here on DA. 

But two days ago, I learned that the Mickey Mouse Short that I've been working on has been pulled from production. This unfortunate turn of events knocked me out of my normal mind-space while simultaneously clearing my schedule (because, what am I going to do if I go into work on Friday? Sit there and look at my desk? The project is OVER). 

So rather than sit around sulking, I began to write. Or, to be more accurate, "while" I was sitting around sulking, I also began to write. 

And then I posted it to my blog. Which is something I almost never do.

My daughters got me into Deviant Art. They are much cooler than me.

I work in the animation business, as a storyboard artist on one of the Disney TV shows (Phineas and Ferb). It's a lot of work, but it's a fun job, and the people on the show are both very creative and [gasp!] nice.

I live in Los Angeles (though in a city that is not actually Los Angeles. The LA city limit is a block away).

I was born and raised in Portland Oregon.

I've always been fascinated by well-drawn cartoons.

I'm a lousy painter.

I now think of Winter as a fun place to fly to. But I wouldn't want to live there.

I have been very lucky. You have no idea.

Awesome gallery! I love that old time-y look of your drawings.

(Oh, and by the way, our stories of where we live are almost complete opposites. I use to live down in San Diego [Chula Vista, technically] and now I live up here in Portland. [Well, Gresham to be precise, but it's considered the Portland Metro Area...I think.] Not sure why I decided to bring this up.)

Thank you.

For the first 10 years or so, I was SURE that I was going to move back up to PDX. But the animation industry sucked me in, my wife doesn't like rain, and my kids have never known anything but LA. 

...Now I've lived most of my life down here. Strange.

Well, it seems that getting stuck down there in LA worked out the best for your career and family. Just imagine, had you stayed or came back up to Portland then you probably would just be another indie comic writer amidst the thousands of them in this area. (Wow, I make it seem really bleak up here.) Not saying that that would have been bad! I'm glad that there are many artists/writers up here. I guess what I mean is that it's a good strange that you stayed in LA. Anyways, keep being awesome at that art.

Thank you. 

Drawing is my love, my hobby and my addiction. 

This is the kind gallery all that activity has led to.
