James Baxter is one of today’s animators I admire the most. I was lucky enough to have Dimos Vrysellas (another super talented animator who worked side by side with James) as my mentor for Class 3 at AM. It was pure fun to hear all the good stories from Dreamworks. Look for some pencil tests by James here Inspiring stuff!!

Someone please explain how is this even possible. Simply amazing!!!

A colleague posted this over at Facebook. I just couldn’t stop laughing. This reality applies not only to the games industry but to TV and movies as well.

You work with no stop, study complex new stuff in your free time and you compete with people 100 lightyears ahead of you in terms of access to education, resources and experience.

Is it possible to make it? It is, but it is no joke.

Today was my last day at Muucine. I had an AWESOME time there, to say the least. Really great group of artists, all very talented. Thanks a lot guys!! I’ll miss you!! Gracias chicos, se les extraniara 🙂

I’ll start working this Monday on another production company called Gizmo. We’ll see what the future brings.

I’m starting to realize this could be more than a space about myself only, haha. That’s just too boring!! I think it’s time to start sharing more and more.

Lets share 🙂

End of Class 1
Ok, this is a sad but happy moment. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way for school. I mean, I do want to take a break (because I had to work my ass off, haha) but I really want to keep learning from such great people (mentors and students). Last Q&A was really fun, […]
