Hi everyone. Boy oh boy the CTN was such an awesome event. For those of you that don't know, the CTN is a creative talent network for animation where people can meet different amazing artists and animation companies and show them your portfolio and stuff. There are also panels and demonstrations too. I mean I met some of my greatest heroes. People like Craig Mcracken, Lou Romano, Ben Balistreri, Leo Matsuda, all got to look at my portfolio and rip it to shreds. It was great.
As far as the picture above goes, I am so pleased and extremely grateful to say that i was invited to talk on a panel about one of my greatest influences ever, Ronald Searle. And get this, the people that were on the panel with me were none other than James Baxter, John Musker and Matt Jones(who actually met Ron Searle in person). It was so humbling to talk next to three amazing artists like these guys. As far as the actual event goes it went great, and i was told that I didn't make a huge ass out myself, which i thought i would. CTN was such a great convention and I hope it repeats itself next year. If they ever read this I would especially like to thank Rik Maki and Tina Price for the opprotunity. You guys are great!
