My new friends from Nemo Academy of Digital Arts in Florence, Italy, Francesco Mariotti (pictured above) and Luca Chiarotti have invited me to give a workshop next week plus receive the Nemoland award which I am very honored. Victor Navone, from Pixar will also be there to receive the award and to give a workshop.
They also published a book (See cover above) with my artwork that would be available for purchase and which I will be signing for the students. I am thrilled to have my work in print for the first time.
I have planned to show my animation process, how I approach animation and design. I will be animating a whole shot, step by step from the planing stages to final tiedown.
I hope they like it.
Wish me luck!
