Updated Caricatures Gallery

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.

Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode 2


These are simply too genius not to post. Some nice animation in them, too! Make sure you're not drinking any hot liquids while watching them...

Interview with me on Animated Views


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.

Coraline


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:

Happy 10th Birthday, Blit!


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!
