I watched a lot of cartoons and movies. I draw incessantly and carry a sketchbook everywhere. I work in animation and self-publish my books. There are monsters in the streets, don't wear red. Mad bulls and monsters hate that color. I still watch cartoons.

Banff Center this weekend: I'll be giving a talk on Story



From March 24 to 28, 2005, The Banff New Media Institute at The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada, is hosting a workshop entitled, “Boarding: Stories and Snow”, which will feature several story and storyboard artists from world-class, industry leading studios in film, television, interactive and game development across North America. Participants from across Western Canada will converge at the Banff Centre, Canada’s only multidisciplinary arts environment devoted to professional career development and lifelong learning in the arts.

I hear it's going to be cold but the location, I'm told, is breathtaking. I won't be snowboarding but will be dutifully sipping coffee and cheering on those who will. Been working hard on a sample story to illustrate my main argument about storyboarding. Sleep optional these days but having a ball.

Looking forward to meeting the good people of Banff and all the attendees. I'll post a post talk report here. So watch this space.

Banff is the second most beautiful place in the world. Lake Louise (not far from there) is THE most beautiful place. Wish I were going! Enjoy!

Nick--It was a very good conference. Wish you could have gone. And you're right, Banff in the winter time is quite amazing.

Chad--thanks again for linking me to that conference.

Jodie--So, I saw the No.1 and No.2 most beautiful place in the world. Not bad for a weekend trip, eh?
