portable workspace.

animating with the clipboard - it was o.k.

...but the arrival of the animation disc today was a big improvement.

propped up by camera tripod, with ruler taped down in front for front support.

the disc itself spins like butter.

The Master BG list has arrived! Halfway!

For any folks interested in all things Background-related, I have now uploaded half of the list of BG's for OM in the Backgrounds tab.  It will amaze you.  Really.

Actually, assuming pages 11-20 yield about the same number of BG's as the first ten, there are significantly fewer BG's than we originally thought.  Still a good amount of them, but doable.  I'll have the second half - plus deadlines! - up later this weekend.

I like long walks by the beach... at night.

It's actually true, though the beach here in Seq03Sh02 looks like it has limited real estate...
See you guys tomorrow!

our fresh young interns

Amanda, Shannon, Matt, and Giselle, ready to take on ogres over winter break...

sandwich day

Today we worked in the classroom and experienced some changes. Goodbye to Maya, who we are sincerely sad to see leave us. Hello to Matt, who sat in today and officially started his role as Eric's background coloring assistant. Janelle met James Earl Jones.  We ate sandwiches.

As winter break draws close, we will keep in touch via this blog and DropBox, and also through the mail, with drawings flying across oceans and continents.

And bye to Dave Brubeck, who is now taking a bit more than five.

On to Sequence VI....
