BRAND NEW YEAR!


Heya! First off, I hate reading blogs where people apologize for neglecting their blogs...that said, I want everyone to ignore the fact that I have neglected my blog. Let's put that behind us!

The Storyboard section of my website (www.aidancasserly.com, in case you forgot it) has been completely redone, so that instead of scrolling through all the samples in a linear order you can just pick and choose whichever storyboards you feel like seeing. This sort of convenience will hopefully help clients and recruiters sample my work, because if your website is hard to navigate through most people wont even bother. Take it from someone who's learned this the hard way.

A new Flash animation is up, "CHIMAERA", which is a silly but innocent little cartoon about God and the struggles it takes to create something. I'm still not quite up to the quality of "Sita Sings the Blues", but I'm working on it!

The extremely awesome Karen J Lloyd conducted an interesting interview with Paul Briggs, storyboard artist on Disney's "The Princess and the Frog". Check it all out at Karen's blog.

And finally, I wanted to give a shout-out to my friend and fellow storyboard artist Sean Petrilak. Sean is a very talented, and more importantly, very NICE artist who has been giving me a lot of good advice and encouragement. This business isn't easy, and you need all the pals you can get. Check out Sean's website.

See you all in the next post! No blogs left behind!
