Just an update on the life of Gette, for anyone who's interested...no new work, sorry. But there will be soon!

SO I kept getting annoyed with people for assuming that I'd gotten accepted for the Disney apprenticeship program that starts this next week. They'd say things like "so what now? Just waiting for Disney to start?" and I'd say "NO, because I didn't get the Disney thing." And then that person would shrink a little bit. Not that it's an insult, it's just understandably frustrating to have the same conversation over and over. And then comes Monday and Disney calls me.

So I AM doing the Disney apprenticeship. Serves me right for being so prickly. It starts on Tuesday. What am I looking forward to the MOST? To eating lunch in the comissary on the main lot with my friends, that's what! And harassing Joe Moshier to find out all his design secrets. And free tea. And, oh yeah, access to enormous libraries of animation art and history, too.

And I had a very lovely 23rd birthday last week, and Los Feliz is probably the best neighborhood I've EVER lived in, with the nicest people. Good to be back in LA for keeps! So life post-art school is treating me well. So far so good!

If Brigette is happy then I am happy. I'm very jealous of you guys all at Disney, you have to promise to have so much fun that I can feel cosmic fun vibes all the way up here by the bay! Can't wait to see what types of fun artwork they let you do, promise to post it all on your blog if they let you.

Glad you're digging Loz Feliz!
