A Bridal Shower (Literally)...

Congratulations to Lisa and Marco on their engagement! Lisa's bridal shower was this Sunday Aug. 9/09 and it ended up literally "showering" her with happiness.

Here's a little sketch (from memory) inspired by Lisa's shower...

Balloon seminar sketch dump

Many of you know that aside from living in "Animationland", I also live in "Balloonland" (like the main character in the new Pixar movie "UP"). I was extremely surprised to hear of such a story line, since I create balloon decorations, when I am not animating. I can't wait to see it on May 29th! I guess my balloon-related story ideas should be thrown out the window now that Pixar got their hands on such a unique story...ARGH....

Anyways, here are sketches from a balloon seminar I went to. Yes the balloon is a 3ft. balloon, so it is meant to look that big. And yes, there are balloon decorating classes/seminars!!! My favourite one was in Disneyland!

Many people can't believe you can make anything out of balloons!
