I've added a few new drawings to my Caricatures gallery, including this one of Carlos Baena:
These are mostly pics of other Pixar animators, so you might not recognize any of them.

Here's an interview I gave about WALL-E and Cars Toons, in case you care. And if that's not enough for you, the same site has an interview with Angus MacLane, Directing Animator on WALL-E and Director of the original short, "BURN-E", which is featured on the WALL-E DVD.

Here are some sneak peeks at the upcoming stop-motion feature, Coraline. It's directed by Henry Selick ("Nightmare Before Christmas") and these documentary vignettes are beautiful to watch. I hope the movie is as good! Type in these passwords to access 6 different clips:
Update: Here's the trailer!

I'm not sure of the exact date, but I'm pretty sure that I finished my first animation test of Blit Wizbok (who would late go on to appear in Alien Song) in November of 1998. I don't give Blit a lot of thought any more, but I have him to thank for getting me in the door at Pixar. Blit was modeled and animation in Animation: Master, which I loved using, but I haven't had a chance to touch it (or Blit) in years.
So I've been doing character animation for about 10 years now; looking back at this first clip, I'm happy to say I've learned a few things in that time!
