Big blog post today. I recently came back from a wedding for my cousin in Napa. Here are a few sketches to share, for better or worse. Congrats to the newlyweds, Matt and Angelica!

Spent a few days this last week in San Francisco for a workshop conference held by Schoolism.  Although I can’t show anything from the conference, I learned a couple things that I can’t wait to try out later in the future.  Also got to hang with family and friends in the area and visit the Chuck Jones exhibit at the Cartoon Museum, the director behind many of the old WB cartoons who got me inspired to do animation in the first place.  Overall a really inspiring week.  Anyways, here are a few sketches from the weekend.

Today I arrived in San Francisco for a much-needed vacation.  The weather was starting to get to me: cold, rainy, dark, and sometimes snowy.  It was time for a change.  Glad to be in another place where the weather is cold, rainy, dark, and… heyyyy, waitaminute!  Where’s the sun?!  Seriously, when I left this morning, it was acutally sunny!  In fact, it was sunny for the whole flight until I got within 100 mi of SF.  It’s like I lassoed a cloud and tied it to the tail fins.  At least it’s not snowing [knock, knock, knock]…

It’s been a while since I’ve taken a real vacation.  Actually, the main reason for coming down was to clear my head.  There are a few things on my mind that have been bugging me these past couple months, and I needed to get away from it all.  I plan to do some reading and praying about this in the next couple days and hopefully get a clearer picture on where I need to go with my life.  Some serious stuff I know, but I also plan to get some R&R and some good food in as well.  I’ll post some pictures and sketches from the trip when I get back.  See ya soon!
