Sorry about the poor picture quality, but these screen shots are taken from a VHS tape that I recorded with my VCR. Now I know how my parents felt when I was a kid and they were still using an 8 track player when I was using cassette tapes and a Sony Walkman. Anyway, this is from an episode of My Gold Fish Is Evil. It was written and storyboarded by Errol Burke and myself. As far as Gold Fish episodes go, I think it is the best one I have seen, but that is not saying much. After I watched this episode, I watched an episode of My Gym Partner's A Monkey. What a difference!! My Gym Partner's A Monkey is fantastic, hilarious, excellently paced, great voice acting, timing, great gags, great designs. The Episode I saw was the one with the koala girl, Deidre. It was brilliant. It's everything Goldfish should have been, but is not. There is a long laundry list of things I hate about My Goldfish Is Evil. I won't rant about that right now. Instead I will enjoy my moment in the pic above.

Okay, well it's not actually ME....but it is my art. This is the cover of this month's TOON BOOM NEWS, a magazine circulated in the animation industry to promote Toon Boom software and the studios using Toon Boom programs. The cover is a design I did for Oasis Animation. There are several posts from this production in my blog archives, pretty much all of September and October 2007 archives are just from this project. Am I mentioned in the article on the inside? Nope. But there is a fascinating interview with the guy that signs my check.
My Girlfriend is also in the magazine, well it's not actually my girlfriend...but it is a caricature of her. I've highlighted her in the top picture. She is one of the incidental characters in the club scene. When I showed her the picture in the magazine she screamed and giggled like a 10 year old girl, so I think she was happy about it.
