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.
