been real busy these past few weeks, thought i'd share what's been keeping me away from updating this ol blog

first, exciting news for me, my NFB film got into the Ottawa film fest! woo! but you ask, how?, we (the lovely internet) havent seen it yet! well dear friends, the nfb is holding out posting our films in beautiful quality until world animation week, which is of course in october! BUT you can see it low res HERE i'll of course post when the gorgeous copy is online, you need to some of the colours high res, its awesome.
we're not in the competition, but fun to see our work bigscreen none the less. its at the end of sept.

The incredible Oscar Grillo, whom i've been a fan of for ages, did this years poster

***EDIT*** ive been working on some shorts for a big company through a smaller company, but i can't talk about it until the campaign is done. i posted stuff about it before but i got shut down, heh, contracts

as well as finishing up the **CANNOT TALK ABOUT IT PROJECT**, im working on a jean spot for a new line - Naked & Famous jeans. cant show any of it yet, but im really excited by it, should be really cool. all this mystery, ive been the busiest ive ever been in my life & i can't show anything to anyone about it.

im going back to toronto for alittle bit to work on a cool commercial for head gear, its very similar to the constantines video, & while im there i have a table in the artist alley at the big evil toronto comic con Come check me & my brother out, he has a seperate table with the sexy Neil tavares. THEN im off to vancouver to visit my beautiful lady who's working on a cool stop-motion feature, & while im there im going to be at the little & im sure wonderful Vancouver comic con. that takes place sept 9 & if you're in those con areas, i would love to here you insult me & my work, it doesnt have any feelings

finally theres always mojizu's, new one is me,

alittle shameless plug for my 2007 sketchbook, which you can pickup from at those cons above or clicking on the right hand side button >>>>
Wilfred is in the second round of the war & is just behind a russian dog, if you havent voted yet, now would be the greatest time to do it, right now he's only 3 votes behind & the voting ends on sunday night, we can beat those ruskies!

i think thats it, the next month or so is going to be heavy heavy, so i most likely wont see you for awhile. if you dont have anything nice to say, insult them in your head.

Roy G Biv was a trip and a half. Will the hi-res version be full screen? When you get into town gimme a shout, we'll go for beers.

Dale, your film looks awesome. Congrats.

Watching it as a watercolourist it really struck a nerve. I think we have a tendency to form a personal connection with the mediums we work in, and to see something so familiar come to life was lovely.

What're you up to now that the film is done?

cheers gentlemen, it was a fun film to do, it was awesome that the nfb allowed us to spend the time on those films, very rare.

im crazy busy right now, doing other films in montreal, back at headgear for a couple weeks doing a cereal commercial, like the cons vid. im at the toronto con this weekend, peddling off my shit, come on by, love to see you guys
