See Ya Later Hollywood

Well...My time in Hollywood has come to an's definitely a bitter sweet feeling. Probably one of the richest and most significant experiences of my life. I'm sad to go but it's also renewed my passion for this art form and has given me incredible insentive to kick 4th year's ass.
We went out with a bang though...tonight we had a pizza party at 6PH with Glen Keane...

John K...Eric Goldberg...and Glen Keane in one summer...*pees pants*...a tri-factor of animation genious if you ask was an incredible honour to meet them all. They were all so humble and enthusiastic to speak to us and share some of their infinite wisdom.

Glen spoke to us about his experience in the animation industry, spoke about his film rapunzel, and offered some great advice regarding getting to know your characters and investing your personality into your film and characters.

He was even kind enough to draw me Ariel witch I got him to make out to Sammi since she 's obsessed with the Little Mermaid and used to roll on the ground pretending she was Ariel.

I think i can speak for all us Sheridan interns out here when i say wev'e had a great time, learned a ton, and have been welcomed with open arms by all the great people at Six Point as well as all the amazing artists we met.
a job well done guys...I tip my hat to you all. It's been a good one.

My only regret is that I couldn't accept John's invitation to hang out one last time tomorrow night before I leave. unfortunately I'll be like 20,000 feet in the air.
He's been exceptionally good to me and it still blows my mind that i got to be all buddy, buddy with my largest influence. Thanks John...I'll catch you next time.
Next stop...the great white north for my last year at Sheridan...Now I can get back to posting art on this blog and get this film goin. Sweet D.

it wasn't 20,000 feet in the air. i listened to the captain talking.. and he said 35,000 feet. just a minor correction for you.

but agreed w/ the whole post even tho i wasn't an intern at 6ph. i still had a blast and i am so thankful i got the opportunity to go.. and to spend an amazing 3 months with you. i love you so much.

I am oh so very jealous of you Frank. Meeting Eric Goldberg and Glen Keane and becoming chums with your childhood hero...
