Well it sure has been a while since I've posted anything drawing wise. A little bit of being busy and a little bit of being uninspired. Happens from time to time with everyone only it was my turn this time.
I been getting small little bursts lately and with a combination of Randall Sly's latest post of Ward Kimball designs and Nate Wraggs designs from the Ancient Book of Myth and War, I've decided to jump in again.
Now these images have nothing on the fellas mentioned above, but you can't hide forever.

I've just won an Emmy award for Individual achievement in Animation!!!
I have spent the last couple of years working on The Backyardigan's, a show that I now AD on, and it is for this work that I have been so honoured.
Janice Burgess(the creator of the show) and the rest of the gang at Nick Jr. were extreemly thoughtful in throwing my name into the ring for consideration. It was an incredible surprise when Janice called me last week to let me know that I had won.
I will be traveling to L.A. for the award, which happens just before the regular Emmy awards, on June 14. I can't wait.
Now all I have to do is figure out where my wife is going to sleep once I bring this little lady home.
I have recently switched positions at work and am now an assistant director on a show called The Backyardigan's. I have been an animator on the show for the past couple of seasons and welcome the new challenge.
A lot of work but very interesting and fun.
As a result I haven't had a heck of a lot of "me" time to doodle.
That being said here's a quick one to hold you over.
Well it seems as if I've trailed off a bit towards the end of the year as far as postings go. Hopefully taking some much needed time off will help kick start the engines a little.
One thing that was certainly a kick start was taking the family to the Ontario Science Centre yesterday. What made this a special treat was that the science centre put out their Rowland Emmet display. Being one of my favourite artists it was great to see these again and to be able to appreciate them on a whole new level.
If you happen to be in the Toronto area and can get down to the Science Centre before January 7th, you'll be able to check out these fine machines as well.
