All I’m gonna say is Amen brother!!! Ira really tells it well, it applies to what he does and to what we do in animation as well – storytelling. I think it works especially well for the short form.
Hey there peeps. Wanted to let everyone know that I have finally finished the majority of the site upgrades. Check out some of these cool new things… (if you haven’t already).
Photography page – lots of new images and drawings to look at!!!
Daily Drawings – they will be put in the gallery in the photo section from now on in order… so if you want to see the latest ones go to the end!
Animation section – It actually has work in it!!!
In Production section – if you don’t have the password, then your not gonna see it. : ) If you want the password – shoot me a message and I’ll let you know.
All in all I’m happy with the redesign – WordPress 2.6 is MUCH better to use and the new dashboard rocks!!! thanks guys for the update!!!
Well it is official Delgo has gotten distribution!!! We will be releasing with Freestyle releasing the current date is December 12 this year. Any more details are few at this point – Our producer and Co-director Marc Adler signed the deal last week. Once the official press release is out and any more info I get that is public I will put it up here.
Thanks to everyone out there who has held out hope and worked tirelessly to make this happen. We couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity. So mark your calendars…

Hey all – just wanted to let you know that I’m currently working on getting my site updated with new content – ie animations and photos – and bringing it up to date with the latest wordpress release of 2.6. It has been a bit of a nightmare, had to do a complete re-install several times and thought I almost lost everything. Backups are a good thing…. So please bear with me over the next week as I get it tweaked.
We knew it was coming. No matter what anyone says or how much you expect it the phone call still is a shock. You have a bizarre mixture of loss and joy all at the same time, a grand sense of relief and tension but at least the suffering is at an end.
Today my grandmother died. Her name was Sylvia and she was one hell of a lady. She was in a word – spunky. Small in stature but she was great in spirit. She birthed seven children and raised nine. She outlived two husbands and man could she draw.
While I was growing up we didn’t spend as much time at her house as we did at Grandma Maurer’s and somedays I regret that choice. I would have liked to known her better. I remember her house in Minister as a young boy, we would go there and she would always give us 7-up in these wonderful glasses that had big inverse bubbles carved out of them. They had a sort of irridence to them that I remember. Its funny what memories stick with us – how the image of that glass and that drink stick with me.
Every year on my birthday – including this last year while she was ill – I received a hand written birthday card from her. She never forgot, never missed a one. I think only once or twice did I ever send her one on her birthday or send her a thank you for taking the time to write me yet every year there it was – I’ll miss those cards.
Mostly I remember her as a tough old lady who loved to smile, enjoy a good beer, and who would shoot raccoons out of a tree with her old 410 shotgun. No foolin’. When she lived on the farm, she had a ton of cats, and would feed them in the barn. Well the Raccoons would come and eat the cat food – so Grandma would shoot the buggers to keep the cats from starving. Plus I don’t think she liked raccoons all that much either.
Now I’m off to Ohio to mourn her with my family to say goodbye to another matriarch of my family and comfort my mother in her time of grief. I’m not that sad, really, not yet. It was hard seeing her in June. Seeing that frail little woman bundled up on a hospital bed not weighing more than 75 lbs, but what I’ll remember always about that visit is what happened the last time I saw her as I was leaving…
I was walking out of her room, my Aunt Annie was sitting next to her and I had said my goodbyes. Right before I walked out the door I looked back just one more time – there she was in a beautiful red sweater and she caught my eye. Then she smiled and winked at me. She actually winked! I thought to myself – spunky ole’ lady I’m gonna miss you. I grinned back and walked out of her life.
I’ll miss you grandma. See you on the other side.
