i'm going to follow in the footsteps of uberstorycaptain Ronnie Del Carmen, and promote Pixar's next cinematic extravaganza, UP!

this was the first film I worked on here, and i'm thankful that because of it I met some of the most talented and large hearted people anywhere: story artists Bill Presing, Enrico Casarosa, Justin Hunt, Josh Cooley, and Tony Rosenast; Bobby Rubio, Mr. Rob Gibbs, Brian, Shannon, and Veronica; kindly directors Pete and Bob, and Ronnie Del Carmen himself. I can only count myself very lucky, and wait to see this on the silver screen!

Check out the trailer in theatres November 21st,
and watch for the film next May 29th, 2009!

in the mission

a couple of olde gouache paintings from around my neighbourhood! the first is from the coffee shop I often frequent, a girl that I met who just happened to be from just about the same place that I'm from in Canada.

the second painting is the view from bernal heights, looking southward... there are a lot of dogs up here, and early morning walkers. reputable sources have told me that the hill possibly provides the best views in the city...
