Here comes 2009, the year of COW!

I can’t believe it… Didn’t we just celebrate the year of the rat….like a few weeks ago??(at least it feels like it)

2008 was quite a year for me. Totoro Forest Project really took a chunk out of my tank. It was well worth it though. There was just so much we had to learn. This experience will definitely be valuable at some point down the road.

2009 is projected to have plenty to look forward to. It will be the full on production crunch of Toy Story 3 lighting. That’ll be dictate my life for sure.(and it’ll be fun!) My first children’s book… I also have a huge event coming up.

Hope your 2009 will be a splendid one!


But all in all, let’s hope we see more peace and stability in the world….despite the current state the world is in….

    Actually, this was an oil painting I did on board and then scan the painting to make this card. Not really painted on paper…Oh, if you are talking about the collage piece I showed in my previous entry, I used Matt medium to glue paper onto the surface!

    Thanks a lot!
