August 27, 2011


I grew up with a vegetable gardening, birdwatching, carpenter for a father. 
A stained glass making, graphic designing, landscape painting mother. 
And a brother who loves to go fishing, hunting, mountain bike riding all day long.

They were doing their things, while I was inside reading 
Calvin and Hobbes, studying Bill Watterson's drawings, 
his humor, his imagination, and his artistic eye. 

Watterson's work helped me learn that I had an artistic eye as well.
It came through when I studied drawing and photography
in high school. As well as cooking in Italian restaurants.

I didn't know it yet but these arts were slowly leading me towards
becoming an animator, learning about visual weight, 
contrast and timing, texture and presentation.
