I am really ,really busy. Just after Thanksgiving I started fulltime at Dreamworks Feature Animation. Me and my friend Shannon are developing the Peabody and Sherman feature film from the ground up. Rob Minkoff (the director) brought us on to be the very first artists involved with the film. We're doing everything from character design to story. If you know anything about Peabody and Sherman you know that it is about time travel, and it has been one of my dreams to work on a time travel film. AWESOME! It's so fun.
So on top of that (in my non-existant spare time) me and my buddies have been trying to wrap up our 22 minute short for Cartoon Network. Over the past two months I have been feverishly drawing and numbering and yelling to be able to get everything shipped to the Rough Draft team to start animation. Below is a tiny, tiny sample of the HUNDREDS of special poses, charts, and expressions I have done over the past few weeks. I don't sleep any more.

hey shane, i love your work, really great stuff. i see you mention using a cintiq: I've been on paper my whole, young life, but my brother recently bought me a cintiq. im not comfortable drawing with it yet and was curious to know if you use it to make this stuff and do you feel like you can control your marks using it as easily as you do on paper? thanks!

Anyway err on abercrombie Outlet the side of caution and choose the abercrombie and fitch larger size. If the abercrombie sale size 20 blouse is too big, but abercrombie & fitch the size 18 is too small, choose abercrombie the larger blouse. This will enable you to have it fitted. A seamstress or tailor abercrombie uk can't do anything with a garment that's too small abercrombie london -- he or she can, however, tailor a garment abercrombie and Fitch Polo that's too big to fit you to a T.Most plus size abercrombie Polos women's clothing will fail to fit one particular part of her body.
