Off to Italy

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!
