puss in boots

Hello out there in blogger-land!  In a nutshell: I've been working a lot, and not blogging very much, and having adventures, and taking pictures, and making plans, and writing 100 e-mails, and maybe spreading myself a little too thin.  But what can you do?  Sometimes life is like a roller coaster, and you just gotta hang on!

I wanted to update with SOMETHING, for heaven's sake, since it's been a whole month already.  But I have very little lying around that I can show to you all, because so much of it has to stay secret for what feels like forever.  What I found when I rummaged through my files was this sample piece I did for a Puss in Boots book.  I ended up getting the gig, and spent aaaaaaalll of last month crunching like crazy to get it done just barely by the deadline.


It will be out in October.  So you can sink your eyes into it then!



In other news:  Guess who is teaching a class at CalArts this coming school year?  



More on that later!  Time for this moi to catch some snoozes.

SO cool about the CalArts teaching gig! CalArts was the school I wanted but never got to attend. Hopefully, you'll share some of you artistic wisdom on the blog so I can soak it up somehow. lol
