East Coast Adventure!

Fri 7/7/2017

Well, last weekend I returned home after two weeks on the East Coast. Claire and Suzanne joined me for the first leg of the trip, which took us over to Portland, Maine to visit our old pal Liz Prince.

Then Claire and Suzanne drove with me over to White River Junction, Vermont so Suzanne could meet some of my friends there. I uploaded a bunch of photos from our trip into a new Flickr album.

After a few days in Vermont, Claire and Suzanne headed back to Maine to fly home to Santa Fe, while I stayed put to teach two weeks of summer workshops at The Center for Cartoon Studies.

I'm happy to report that I survived teaching my new animation course for the first time! There were a few hiccups, but I had an excellent group of students who stuck with me and they all ended up creating some amazing work during an intense week of drawing. You can see some of their projects on this Tumblr that I set up to showcase their work. I definitely learned a lot by teaching this material for the first time and I'm already excited to teach it again next year with a number of improvements.

I'm very thankful that I get to be home for the rest of the summer, spending time with Claire and Suzanne and chipping away at all my various projects.

After spending so much time amongst friends back East I was feeling kind of isolated out here in Santa Fe, so I... I set up an instagram account? My thought was that a lot of my friends are on there, and it might make me feel more connected to what is going on in their lives, but for now it's just causing me a lot of "social media stress." It's been a while since I had to join a new platform. Ugh...

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. Stay cool, everybody!
