MORE THAN MEETS THEY EYE!



So it's out. Hollywood Reporter's got the story, so I figured I can make my official post on the subject. If not then I'm gonna get a slap from PR soon... The new job, as you can see above, is on Transformers: Animated. I'm supervising director, Derrick Wyatt is doing an amazing job on character design, and Marty Isenberg is rockin' it out as story editor. We have an awesome crew here at Cartoon Network working on the show as well as 2 great animation studios in Japan, Answer and Mook. It's been a ton of work for everyone involved but there's a lot of love being put into the show, and i think it shows. Stay tuned for more updates!

A little bit of work...

So, yeah, I'm worse than i thought at blogging. And I still won't talk about what I'm doing, because i don't think I can announce it yet...but I'll give you a little update. I'm supervising director/show-runner of the show I'm working on right now, and because of that i was fortunate enough to travel to Japan to talk to the studios who are working day and night trying to make me and the crew happy with incredible animation. The best part of the trip is that while there i was able to actually do animation AT an actual animation studio in Japan. Talk about the dream of every anime geek living on this green earth. Here's proof!



How dope is that? And here's me with some of the crew...



And more from another studio...



And check out my guides while i was there...



Basically it was the raddest work trip of all time. 2 weeks of pure immersion into Japanese studio culture. I loved it. I would love to move to japan and produce animation. It'd be hard work, but very creatively fulfilling. So coming soon (cross your fingers) my official announcement of what I'm doing, and what these totally boss people pictured above are working on, and hopefully you'll get some new artwork while I'm at it. See ya!
