Day 16! Past the halfway mark! Today was inspiration. The first animated movie I remember watching was Who Framed Roger Rabbit? I used to watch it on a loop. Looking back at it now, I know it was more for the fact that I really wanted a world where cartoons coexisted with humans. Where I would be able to fake sky-dive with Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse and ride a smart mouthed cartoon taxi. All of the anti corporate greed and monopoly plot-lines completely went over my head, but, it doesn't matter. It made me want to create worlds as real as that one felt to me. So that maybe someone else could feel as awesome as I did the first 100 times I saw that movie. Plus Jessica Rabbit? Shwing.

Day 15- Draw your family! I have an older brother, mom and dad. My brother is only 10 and a half months older though, so as kids we were almost like twins until we hit puberty and I grew into a giant until about 13. Then he hit puberty and... I still pretend I'm a giant. Now, though, since I am SOOOOOOO much more mature (wink wink nudge nudge), I tend to see him as a younger brother. And my mom and dad are just awesome.

Day 14- Favorite fairytale. Alice in wonderland. It was the first time I felt like I was on acid. Good times! The Most Ordinary Will be up tomorrow, Tuesday, and on Saturday for this week. Work is... 12 hour days for the foreseeable future.

A comic. And, since I've been busy with work and The Most Ordinary, I'm gonna go ahead and cheat and use a comic I did for my friend Nilah's comic, MFK. HERE And check out more of my comic: The Most Ordinary

Day 12- Most recent accomplishment! After a bunch of months of living frugally off of small freelance gigs I was re-hired at HoM as a mocap artist/animator for the next while. Steady jobs are great in the steady-ness of it. Plus the kids I work with are awesome, so, win win!
This one is late but,in my defense, I slept REALLY well. Day 11- Turning point in your life. I came out to my mom when I was 16. It... was tough. But her reaction, at least now that its almost been 10 years, is kinda hilarious. I just blurted it out to her.

Favorite cartoon characters. I have to say, Goofy, from A Goofy Movie is one of the funniest and cutest characters ever. My brother and I spend years 10-18 quoting him to each other when ever we wanted to stop the other from being mad. Worked like a charm. Bruce Timm's Batman, from the Batman Animated Series? One of the greatest superheros/characters/detectives ever. He fought, he had sex and he had emotions. All while trying to somehow stay pg enough for kids. Needless to say, seeing Mr. J and Harley Quinn in an abusive relationship, the Scarecrow trying to manipulate Batman into forgetting his life as Batman, and Batman and Robin on the lamb from the police when Batgirl thinks she dies horribly and tragically, pushed all boundaries of what a cartoon show could and SHOULD do. I really don't see any action shows coming even remotely close now-a-days.

Someone had a tablet at work so I got to goof off and do this during a break. I have many favorite movies but this is definitely one of them. Fifth Element all the way. During college, we would gather at a friends apartment and watch it monthly on the projector he rented from the school's library. Good times.

Day 3! Favorite Food! I like chocolate, but I think I may like spaghetti marinara a little more. Tough Choice. tumblr. I'll still be using this blog mainly but now I get to harass tumblr kids with my love.
