Hold on tight!

The past couple days have been crazy! I was surprised to have my name attached to any information about the layoffs, and the amount of responses, offers and well wishes have been amazing!

I have just been asked by IUPUI Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis - to come speak with the Siggraph group about animation and my experiences! That's pretty exciting!

Back in November of 2010 I arranged a panel talk / discussion forum for the students at the Art Institute of Colorado hosted by a handful of NetDevil artists and myself! And that was great fun. I've been to a number of schools hosting talks ranging from, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and in the past year speaking to colleges! I fly out in 2 weeks.

I am very grateful.

The next couple of weeks should be interesting and I look forward to what comes next!

Cool! Do you get paid for it? At the very least it's a great networking opportunity. :)

Hey Jonathan!

They are in fact paying for my trip out with other expenses but not for speaking. Which is fine by me! I honestly don't think I'm at the level of getting paid to speak - maybe in another 10 years! :)
