I realize I'm way overdue on this, but wanted to throw a post out there about how much I enjoyed my TAAFI experience this year.
I was a part of two events, the first being a workshop on making short films, and the second a panel on "Creating Success".
While I could spend the next two paragraphs apologizing for my nervousness getting the better of me while delivering the workshop, I'll save the space for a note on all the other fun stuff about the festival that was super enjoyable.
Great old friends, the opportunity to meet some new ones, a terrific group of volunteers, and the feeling of being a part of a really supportive and creative atmosphere made the weekend a memorable one.
The festival does seem to be growing up and felt like this year in particular had a nice community vibe thanks to the addition of the TAAFI marketplace.
Thanks again to Barney, and Rich, and Mike, and Ben at TAAFI for the invite, and Canadian Animation Resources for hosting me in their booth along with their other guests.
Looking forward to next year!

I will be putting on a workshop at the Toronto Animated Arts Festival International this season called "Making Cartoon His Way" and wanted to invite you to attend.
It will be a FREE workshop on Saturday June 14th at 2 at George Brown College (Waterfront Campus) 4th Floor Learning Landscape.
I'll be going over my story and drawing process with the hopes of sharing some of the things I have learned over the past years making films, ending with a short case study on my most recent film ON THE SUBWAY.
I would be thrilled if you wanted to come by and join the discussion.
I can't promise you will leave smarter, but I can promise a lot of embarrassingly crappy development drawings, and a few giveaways including a special TAAFI print for everyone who attends.
Hope you can make it a part of your fun-filled festival weekend!
Excited to announce my film "The Supervillain", part of my Super Duper Super Hero series will be playing at TIFF kids in Toronto Saturday, April 12th at 3:15.

Now that the first season of Napkin Man has aired, I'm happy to share a few designs that I did for the series. If you would like to check out a few episodes as well, there are quite a few available on the CBC Kids website here.
