DO NOT touch the white leaves!

So I went to the zoo today. It was one of the things I wanted to do on this vacation. I took my sketchbook and my iPod Nano, and went sketching. I also took my digital camera to sketch things I didn't have time for. That was pretty much the back half of the zoo.

I was doing pretty good in the beginning. I was walking and sketching. I was sitting and sketcing. I was snapping pictures. I even had a couple of kids come up to me because they were interested in what I was drawing. Their dad told me one of them loved to draw and wants to be an artist. I told him he needs to get a sketchbook, a nice set of pens, and never stop drawing. (If only I could take my own advice.)

It was hot. There was no wind. And the zoo is not actually known for smelling like a bed of roses. Just a warning, but when you see tall trees with birds way up on top, and all the plants and folage down below are not green but white, GET OUT OF THERE AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE!!!

I'll be posting some of my sketches and pics soon.

Ok, I got pics.

Here is my animation studio. I recently surrounded it with old calendar pictures. If this doesn't get my animating juices going, I don't know what will.

So this is my new table for the darkroom. Kenny entrusted me with the darkroom equipment before he moved to Pearland and I am eternally grateful.

This looks boring.

I need some pictures.

No idea what's gonna happen.

I picked up my new PC Monday. It's a really awesome system. It's fully loaded with all the video editing and graphic software I need to make my animated shorts really POP! The only problem is...I don't know how to use any of them. It's going to take some time. Great, now I need more time to figure these out when I've been trying to find time to work on my animation and drawing.

Luckily, I am on vacation in about a week. I've been looking forward to this for a while. Plus, it's my birthday. yeah. Not really looking forward to THAT part. What can you do, right?

I would like to tell you my "plans" for this vacation but when I do, they never work out. Something ALWAYS screws them up. So you won't have any idea what I'm going to be doing and neither do I.
