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!
