Classes just wrapped again. I really enjoyed the finals and seeing the compilations of all their work from the semester. Since we are a community college they all leave just as they are getting interesting and go on to university or jobs. Here's an in class demo I did working sporadically during a week.

I know a lot of my BYU friend have already reached this career milesstone, but looks like I have finally been recognized by IMDB.

Pumpkin Carving 2008

Here is this years pumpkin, I try not to get political on the blog here so I will leave it to the viewer to decide if this is support for a McCain/Palin presidency or if I'm saying she is a pumpkin head.

George Lucas at Disneyland 1990

My brothers have been bugging me for a copy of this picture. So I finally scanned it. In 1990 my family took a trip to Disneyland. Star Tours had opened 3 years earlier and we were excited to try the new ride. With 7 more years till there was a "Special Edition" and, 5 more years till there would be any new action figures, there was a drought of Star Wars items for hungry fans. This allowed George Lucas to enjoy a bit of anonymity and walk openly around Tomorrowland with out people swarming him. His VIP tour guide was enough to keep crowds back I guess. Not wanting to ruin his vacation I was satisfied to snap this photo from a distance.
Did you see him? Here's a closer look.

Good Ol' Flour Sack

Here's another one from last semester. Probably just an hour on this one. I can animate so much faster like this. I think probably spend too much time scrubbing the timeline, or checking my email when I use the computer.

Teaching Animation

Another reason I've been slow to post is I was teaching Animation II at the community college last semester and I'm teaching Animation I & III right now. Along with my full time job it takes up most of my free time. It's been really fun to get the students excited and see them grasp concepts. I sometimes do the assignments along with them if there's a moment in class where everyone is working. So this was done in a weeks worth of in-class time in spurts with lots of interruptions.

Thanks to Animation Backgrounds for supplying my class with good backgrounds to work from.

9lbs14oz 22inches

One reason posts are few and far between. We welcomed a son to our family on Dec 12.

"I will name him George, and I will hug him and squeeze him and love him and kiss him..."
