Hey! Welcome to my Blog! I decided to start one because EVERYONE has one and I didn't want to be the only one who didn't have one. I was starting to feel like the Jehovah's witness kid in my first grade class. You know, everyone in the class would be celebrating Halloween, dressing up in as the Fonz or The Six Million Dollar Man, or Cornellius from PLanet of the Apes (there, I've dated myself) except this one kid who would just sit in the corner and abstain from the festivities. Everyone would walk by his desk and ask him where his costume was and he would answer in a tired, practiced monotone "My family doesn't celebrate Halloween."
I was starting to feel like that kid.
So anyway, once I figure out how to post images, I will start posting artwork and stuff.
Did I mention that I'm a cartoonist? I am a Story artist and I am currently working at Sony Pictures Animation.
Up until last April, I worked at Disney Feature Animation, where I worked for 11 years. I worked on Mulan, Hunchback, Lilo and Stitch, Atlantis and I co-directed Home on the Range.
I will indeed be talking a lot about my Disney years, and yes I will dish as much dirt as humanly possible, as I am a notorious trash talker.
Anyway, thanks for reading!

Hey John,
Thanks alot for the really gracious comments. I can't tell you how proud I am that what I do even gets seen, and I'm astonished and overjoyed that it is well received. I really love Lilo and Stitch and Mulan, and use them as things to guide me in my journey to become a feature board artist, so its all the more flattering that you favor what I do.
Thanks again for stopping by, please keep in touch.
