Happy New Year

Hi to all of you out there in Cyberspace. Sorry I've been absent lately. I've got a 5 year old daughter and she takes precedence this time of year:) I've been spending most of my time building a "Log Cabin Doll House" which she specifically asked for this year. My wife bought me a Nintendo DS which I hope to use as a digital sketchbook. Hopefully, I'll post the results...assuming I figure out how to use it. In the meantime, here's a holiday card I made a few years back.

Happy New Year!!!

Hi Paul:)

Thanks for the replies! I'm still amazed by the way you painted Cody, but I'll get used to it:)

All the best wishes for 2008!

Will stay tuned to your blog...

Hi, Paul,

I just now found your blog (via Michael Sporn's) and I am so glad I did . Wonderful art from "Surf's Up" !
Thanks for posting all that work .

I too felt that "Surf's Up" was unjustly overlooked at the box-office. I don't know if it was the advertising campaign just didn't connect with the audience or the perception of "what ? another penguin movie?" hurt it , or whatever ... had to be heartbreaking for you guys to watch it go down at the box-office, but you did something with real integrity and I think you pushed the CG medium.

It was a really good movie and I can only hope that like other films such as Iron Giant , Emperor's New Groove, etc. that it finds a second life and a solid fan base on DVD.

Paul! Happy New Year and yes, your family -should- take precedence during this time. :) I love the card, by the way. The pine trees, berries and snow drops remind me of Japanese paintings. That would make a -super- kimono design, incidentally - would you mind if I attempt to turn it into one for a hypothetical character for practice?

Posting later about Today's Madness!

Can't wait to see what you put on this blog this year, Paul. I was pimping your work to some fellow guys here in the studio I'm at. And be prepared to become addicted to sketching with the DS.
