Why a blog, you may ask? Like many visual communicators, I’m much more inclined to communicate with images rather than words, having spent many hours in the studio figuring out how to say as much as possible with carefully crafted visuals. I'm generally more comfortable inventing characters and giving them the spotlight.
Despite these instincts, I’m starting this blog, which is intended to serve as a place to share ideas and insights about animation, storytelling, the industry, freelancing, juggling personal work versus client work, making films, and all the parts of life that go along with that. I’ll also post updates about my own work and process with the hope that sharing my experiments, ideas, and inspiration will be interesting to someone reading, and more importantly, open doors for collaboration and conversation.
Why a blog, in the age of social media sites left and right? I’ve been on the internet since the 90’s, and I’m still on many a social media site. But I’ve seen platforms come and go, so I’d like a central place for thoughts to live. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading! More to come soon.
