2009

Another chance. That is what 2009 signifies to me. I have had to reinvent myself several times in my career, but I believe this time is different. In the past , the reinvention always was dictated by the marketplace, what styles were current, what was commercially viable. I have decided that it is time to get back to what excites me as an artist and try for once in my life to find my style. I have been a chameleon far too long, and although it has given me some longevity in this wacky field, I have lost myself in the process. 2009 is my time. Sounds dramatic , I know, but as a selfish artist who always bolsters himself with such proclamations, please bear with me. Reinvention is a necessary evil in this rapidly changing animation world and creates a wonderful challenge to my ability to make it happen. I wish all of us luck in 2009, but mostly, I wish us lots of skill.

Bravo brotha' Reinvention is a good thing, remember New Coke? Hmmm.... well..... ok, bad example. I've always been in awe of your talents and skill. If recent history has taught us anything. it is that none of the old rules apply anymore. The playing field is wide open as far as I'm concerned. I look forward to seeing what new creations come from the mind of Gav. I fully expect to be awed by you in the present future. You continue to be an inspiration to me, best you in 09.

Gav you're such a talented person. I'm glad you've realized that you should focus on what is "you" and let everything else fall into place. Believe me, the world will love the "new" you because it will be the real you and everyone always recognizes that truth.

Happy New Year dear friend. xo D.
