sketches pt2


i did these when i was animating at dreamworks-i went over after space jam had finished-and they called uli's to see if anyone wanted to come over and help out on prince of egypt-i went-virgin upperclass-and nearly got booted back to the uk at US immigration-but i sneaked in -and met some great people-
tom higgins-kevin o hara-aaron..(insert surname..)cool guy-wore dungarees..(not for a bet either..)-drove a beemer..
i would love to hear from these guys..i stayed 6 mths-and was asked back for eldorado..i considered it..i also considered the offer i had from a small company called PIXAR..as a trainee animator on a bugs life...but my wife michelle was in the uk..i wanted to draw too-so i headed home..and took a job with purdums studio..It took me about a month for LA to get out of my system..i had become a little too accustomed to it being sunny..and there being a pool nearby..and still long for a hot tub or two.
i think the squirrel in austrian hat is my favourite
