Even Steven


My hard-drive died.

Nope, didn't back up anything. Well, anything within the last 5 months. I took my laptop to some Mac data recovery place, they're currently anointing it with oils and soon will be sacrificing a chicken on it. I think I'm supposed to bath with it in a pool of fresh virgin blood. If I was still in New York, I know who could get his hands on at least a gallon, but in LA I think I have to settle for the frozen stuff. I'll hopefully hear back on Friday. I'm almost as late as Titanic mail on a freelance gig, but I saw light at the end of the tunnel. Man, I hope they can get my files back. I'm dreading the "dog ate my homework" call.

And then there's the other side.

I found myself on the Cartoon Brew recommended blogs list. I'm dumbfounded, and feel totally honored. So thank you Jerry and Amid for that.

If that wasn't enough, I got linked on Drawn! alongside my great friend Ryan "Seabass" Smith. He was there when Andy almost knocked my front row of teeth out with a bottle of Jack.

I also got to meet the super-nice, super-talented Jorge Gutierrez, whose pilot for Nick looks great (or at least the bit I saw before the DVD exploded). I also met his story supervisor Dave Thomas, but I don't have a fun link for him, but here's Wildbrain, and if you click on TV you can see a clip of the series he created that aired in Europe called "Poochini".

Work on the pilot at WB is going really well. We sent off animation tests to a few studios and should have some animation back in a few weeks. I can't wait to see what we get.

Now my boss is waiting for me to get off his computer so he can check his email and go home.
