Until one is forced to believe that Art is Dead does one find resonance in the truth that Real Art Never Dies.

writing from Paris...

Today begins the second week of summer school here at Gobelins. There are 36 of us, representing (and misrepresenting) 16 different countries. Thus far, it has been an amazing experience, being taught by fantastic teachers and being surrounded by fellow animators that remind me of my classmates back home. From the first day here, we all got along instantly, just like the first day we had at Cap. Even though we are from all parts of the world, it was almost surreal to see us all flipping paper and scribbling with colerase, in pretty much the same way.

Gobelins, Paris, animation, and awesome classmates. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Except that I wish you were all here :)
