Animation Ideas is back after a short break and I have more ideas, insights and inspiration than ever for you.
Normally I try to blend into the background and let other animators and their art take center stage, but in this case, I probably should give you an update.
A lot has happened since the last blog post.
I had a baby!
Wow – if there is anything that will force you to realign your priorities – a baby will do it.
He’s a beautiful healthy boy who not only makes me laugh every day, but he sleeps very well at night. Believe me – I know how lucky I am.
Not long after starting a family, I did an interview with Paul Cageggi from the Process Diary Podcast. We spoke a lot about having a young family and how to stay creative and productive admist the chaos of a household dominated by diapers and sleepless nights.
If you get a chance to teach, you should totally do it.
Start with a guest lecture, and go from there. If for no other reason that it helps you better consolidate your understanding of animation. It’s a great feeling to give something back to the next generation of animators.
