Hey,

So I just got back from an awesome week in SF! I got to give 3 autodesk presentations and 1 GDC talk which seated +- 800 people. It was intimidating but really fun! I also got to take a trip to Pixar thanks to my buddy Rich and then attended a 1 week sculpting course with Andrew Cawrse and Damon Bard. Here are some pics of Pixar, GDC and the sculpt I did at the workshop. The character design is based on Adam Ford's Centaur and this piece is a study that was worked on by myself and the 2 instructors (Damon and Andrew), so I dont take full credit for it. I learned an insane amount from them and cant wait to start on my next piece!

The pic of me with Oogway is obviously the maquette done for Kung Fu Panda by Damon Bard. He's ridiculously talented!!

The pic of the people in the crowd is one side of the room while I was on stage doing the GDC presentation.
