Kalle Mattson (Thick As Thieves)!

So the project I've been working on with friends Kevin Parry and Andrew Wilson over the last half year is officially finished and making its online debut; a 'little arts & crafts history of the world' as it were:

TCAF


Went to the Toronto Comics & Arts Festival this weekend; that was excellent. Comics are a medium I'm not intimately acquainted with (as of yet) but some of my style has slowly been gravitating in that direction, and this weekend was if anything inspiring. It's always exciting meeting a bunch of talented people in one place.

Le Annecy Count-Down (34 Days!)

Well, first day-o'-May and just a little over a month before I leave for Annecy!! Crazy-excited!!! I look forward to being floored by phenomenal films and meeting awesome animation artists, as well as drinking in some European culture in general - it's been too long, too long indeed. There's a hop-over to Holland in the works, and a possible excursion to England as well. I'll be sure to pack my sketchbook!

All alliteration aside, I'm really looking forward to this adventure. It's been an interesting year since graduation and I'm terribly curious to find out what's next. In my own efforts, I've got another (short, short) film in the works, and have recently made the move to Toronto.

Also, this is Myrtle. Do say hello.
