Sorry for the lack of sketches.I went to the studio today and found out the basement got flooded, so they had to cut power and shut down the servers. But at least I got a chance to talk to one of the animators and learned a little a bit about his background. Sometimes I can get a little too focused on my work without taking time to getting to know people on a personal level. I tend to think in the back of my mind that I won’t be in my current situation for very long and as a result, I sometimes don’t see the point in developing friendships and improving the relationships around me. I know I shouldn’t be thinking like this, and today is one of those days that reminded me about how I take some relationships for granted.
Whenever I hear someone’s testimony about how great an experience was at a school, city, vacation spot, etc. I always hear that it’s usually more enjoyable because of the people, and I think that has a lot of truth to that.Yet I still overlook those around me; whether it be forgetting someone’s birthday, not writing a thank-you note for a gift, or give an encouraging word when someone needs it. People have been put in my life for a reason, and it’s on me to make the most of every opportunity that’s provided for me. I’m not sure if this is making any sense, but it’s getting late.
I didn’t have time to do sketches, but I figured I should still post some pictures up. I keep a pocket-sized sketchbook with me for jotting down quick ideas. Anyways, I posted a couple pages below. Sorry if the pictures are blurry, but I’m too lazy to take them again.
P.S. Happy birthday Sung Hon and happy belated birthday Maurice!
