Scooter Bozo

Something I drew on the bus.. A scooter bozo.

Up up up date

Hello. I owe you an update.

1. I started a new job last week at a company called Smilebox. They're an online-greeting card and scrap-booking company located in Redmond, WA. I'll be doing animation and illustration for their cards and products. It's a great opportunity for me to focus and do some fun animation. The first week went really well and I like the people I work with. I work in a team with 6 or 7 other animators/illustrators. It's comforting to be in a team that all does similar tasks. At my last job, I was the only in-house person that could do Flash, so it was a little bit lonely.

The commute is kinda hard. On a good day it takes about an hour and 10 minutes each way. On sunny days, I like to get off the bus early and ride my scooter the rest of the way. I'm getting more exercise!

2. As I mentioned in the last post, I purchased the iPhone 4, which has made it immensely easier to maintain a web presence. I love that I can take a photo anywhere I am, and immediately share it. I had been getting bogged down with the process of looking through things I've made or photos I'd taken, scanning stuff, uploading, blabla, but the phone makes things pretttty instant and easy. The only issue I'm having so far is tendonitis in my right wrist. I bought a stylus to help with that. I'm becoming an old man. If you want to keep up with all my old man shenanigans, follow me on

3. Jessica and I are going on a trip to Iceland next week! If you're reading this and you live in Iceland, send me a message so we can hang out. We'll be in Reykjavik from the 14th to the 19th. Jess and I are really excited!

Me and the bug.

Oh! I got an iPhone 4, so I can post neat things on the go, which is great, because I haven't been posting at all!
