Are you coming to CTN-X 11/21?

Posted on Sunday 15 November 2009

So I’m not sure how many people know about this animation expo happening this coming weekend. This thing wasn’t under anyone’s radar earlier but it turns out that this may be one of the most amazing animation events you can ever imagine. They are trying to making this into Comicon of animation. There will be tons of TOP rated speakers as well as classes such as Pete de Seve, Bruce Block, Tom Sito, Don Bluth etc..

And there will be a panel about colors cripting and I’m invited to be a part of it.

I’ll be with my heroes such as Andy Gaskill, Dave Goetz, Paul Felix, and Lou Romano. I heard tickets are all sold out and if you happen to be one of them to attend, please say hello!

It seems to be an really amazing event. Now I’m really excited and proud to be a part of it. I hope to catch some of the talks to educate myself too.

Anyhow, here I’m sharing some sketches I did in Japan last month. With all the big event happening, I could only do a bunch of sketches. I did finish my moleskin book easy though. There are so much to draw in Japan!

>>> Here is the rest of the sketches!

I love the cab driver seat! Tons of interesting gadgets attached to it though I wonder if any of them are really useful…

I also experimented some coloring afterwords. It’s fun to try out strange colors!

    One of the reasons why I’m heading over is to hear all of you speak on that color scripting talk. I can hardly wait!!

    Best of luck to you in all your projects, and cannot wait to see the amazing color job you have done on TS3!!

    Dice, I’ll be the one in the front row taking notes frantically & drooling. Like Haylee said, your presentation is one of the main reasons I’m flying out to the conference. Thank you for taking part.

    Hey, it was so nice to see you though it was brief. Next time, you have to grab me so we can talk more! Thanks again for coming to my talk!

    Gracias! Todavia estas veniendo a San Francisco? Deje me saber!

    Thanks for leaving a comment! 🙂

    I hope your trip was worth it! I felt the talk was a little too short.
    I told them that next year, I’d like to do a solo talk. Hopefully, that’ll be a bit more thorough!

    –Thanks Chris! Hope you enjoyed it!

    THank you. Yeah, the whole event was really great. Well organized. I bet it’ll be even better next year!

    Absolutely. It was my pleasure to see your work. It was very inspiring!

    Thanks man! Yeah, DeSeve’s new book with Randall was soooo nice!

    Thank you. Please do come back once in a while!

    Hope you are doing well at BSS! Everyone tells me you are kicking %$#!
    Show some Pixar spirit over there!
