Bastion's 7 animatic boards polished

Howdy, gang!

What's the happenin's?

Remember the little ol' B7 animatic I had shared last year?
If not you can watch it by clicking this http://vimeo.com/13687272

I had a lot of good critques from when I first posted the link, and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to watch it and speak about it.
There was a lot of great feedback in regards to timing, and etc...

Welp, I gathered a crew together of amazing talent to give me a hand to push this puppy to a final feel.
We still have our work cut out for us, but I thought I'd share with ya what's cookin.

Another inspirational blog....

Today, I was beating myself up trying to remember if I mentioned my pal, Justin Rasch's blog in a previous post, so to give my mind a rest I'll do it today.  Justin and his whole family is so gifted and inspirational, not only with their skill, talent and vision, but also as a family.  When Ichiban (my wifey) and I have our own children we'd want to be as loving day in and day out as the Rasch family.

If you haven't (and I know a ton of you already have) been to their blog, then you gotta go here to be in awe.
You can follow them behind the scenes as they create new worlds you'd wanna live in and explore over at Justin Rasch's blog.

Insanely inspirational....

I can't keep this to myself...

DANG. My pal Caleb keeps hitting me with the jaw-dropping links this morning & I am forever a fan now of these guys.
They are so well done that it hurts.  I feel like a slacker now.  HAHAHAHA
