"Froggy Went a Courtin."

This weeks topic was "Froggy Went a Courtin." A song I didn't even know I loved. It's been a favorite since I first heard Uncle Pecos sing it on Tom & Jerry, but because of the stuttering, the only lyric I ever understood was "Crambo". This topic made me do a little research and I found the lyrics. The song is full of great situations and characters. Who doesn't love a sword wieldin', pistol totin' Frog; or a mean Uncle Rat, a beautiful Ms. Mousey, or the eclectic group of wedding guests. Here are a few discarded ideas I had for the post.
The proposal with Miss Mousy on his knee, and the convincing of Uncle Rat to go buy the wedding dress. I picked the shaving because that is what I always think of before going out, and the tattoo because I figure you have to be pretty tough to take a sword and pistol with you when you go a courtin'.

Thinking Animation Blog

It seems I was a mystery man for a while with at the Thinking Animation Blog. Known only as the elusive "guy." Now that my identity has been made known they made a very nice post about me. I'm about half way through reading their book and it's a great read. Check out the Thinking Animation Blog.

This is the only photo proof of me being at Siggraph.

(side note) I just figured out the whole comment moderation thing so I just got everyones comments today. Thanks for all the feedback.

Airport sketches

I'm finally back from my travels. I got to spend the week in Boston at Siggraph, and I finally added a Wind-Up Teapot to my toy collection. I then got to spend a week in Snowbird with my family. After all that vacation, I'm already for a nice relaxing time at work. These are sketches from waiting in the airport. They are all folks keeping there eyes open for rogue liquids and gels.
