Attention All Poor Animators!

Music World (or at least the one at Lougheed Town Center in Burnaby) has a bargain bin filled with animation!
Well, okay, not so much filled, but today I found two dvds from somebody called 'Quality Cartoons.' The two dvds they put out were Superman Forever and Classic Cartoons: More Fun.
The Superman one is the (first?) eight episodes of the original Fleischer bros. fame, while the Classic Cartoons has sixteen different classic shorts from all walks of life. Characters include Woody Woodpecker, Mighty Mouse, Baby Huey, and a handful of shorts under 'Adventure Tales' - including the famed Dover Boys at Pimento University.
The best part? These dvds are only $4.99!
I picked up both...I mean, this is quality archival animation, here!
Have fun shopping!

Hello, everyone....
Sorry I haven't posted as regularly as I should have. Things have been hectic around here, but it's not so bad...^_^
I'm actually at work right now, and I'm having a blast.
I mean, I'm actually in the industry right now. THE animation industry.
I'm sure the novelty just hasn't worn off yet, but I'm still really excited. :D
I'll post in more detail later on...not to mention I've got some art I'd like to scan it.
Take care, everyone~

Freakazoid #5.5 - Conversational Norwegian

This has to be one of my all-time favorite Freakazoid clips EVER. Why wouldn't you want to see the happy little Narwhal? :D

Full Circle

Well, here it is finally. This is what I spent about five months on at school. Thanks again to all who helped me get through this. :D

Livin' in the Sunlight

Good afternoon,
My God...if you're in the BC area, you are no doubt resisting the urge to frolick around outside, considering it's probably 5 degrees and POURING rain. Fun times. What day is it...? March 17? Hmmmm...spring is in the air, I guess. o_O;;;
Well....I have officially begun the rat race. I have my very first full-time, 9-5, Monday to Friday JOB. Also, I guess you could call it a rat-race, but somehow, I doubt the rat race is supposed to be this COOL.
I now work at the 'prestigious' Studio B, in Vancouver, British Columbia. For now, I'm an animation revisionist, but in three weeks time, I'll be officially animating. As an animator. I'm sorry - I haven't quite gotten over the novelty of it yet. :D
Honestly, I am having a blast. It's so much fun over there, the people are so nice, not to mention infinatly patient (which I'm thankful for), kind,'s heaven. It's also hard work, but really, I wouldn't have it any other way. The facilities are great, the computers are awesome, and, well, from what I've seen, the show seems to be fairly on track, more or less. And, on a side note, the pay is amazing. Now, maybe to someone who's been in this for a while, it might be nothing (from what I've heard, Studio B pays pretty well), but you're talking to someone who, for the last year, lived on $500 a month. $316 went to rent, also. Not to mention that I've NEVER, in the five years I've been working, broke the $9.00 per hour rate. The MOST I've ever made was $8.65, and back then I was like "WOW! That's SO much money!!"
And benefits...! Weeeee!
Well, let's see what happens, and see how I do....I'm still really excited, and I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the future.
Also, thank you so much for everyone who supported me throughout the last year. It's also the little things that meant so much to me. I would not have made it this far without you. Thank you.
Love always,

Things are looking up..! ^_^

Hello, everyone.
Funny story - a bit after grad, but mostly after I got my new job ( Studio B revisionist! I'm so happy!), I felt....well, really good about myself. But, not just like, "Hey, I did a good job," but like, "Hey, I'm no longer working in mall retail, making $8.30 an hour."
To put it the best I can,
I feel like an adult.
I feel professional, confident, sexy, intelligent, and successful. Pardon the cheese, but I feel like a new chapter is opening up in my life. And considering where I live, how I'm used to living, and what I'm going to be making, I can start taking big dents out of my numerous educational debts, and really start having fun. Maybe I'll even start investing....ooohhh!!! My bank, Vancity, are just the greatest....I asked them about RRSP's a little while ago - wouldn't hurt to start saving for retirement, hmm? What, with the way this economy is going....*_*
Well, that's about all I've got for today...I'm going to get a cheap haircut, because my 'poof' is driving me NUTS.
Take care, everyone! All the best in the future~

The Presets - Girl And The Sea

Once again, thanks to the majesty of Cartoon Brew, here I present the Presets - Girl and the Sea.
I thought it was a bit hard to see, but the animation is interesting and beautiful....Personally, I love the character acting of the little girl near the end. She seems like she'll turn your way and start talking to you....
