Big news!

Sorry for the lack of new posts lately. There's a good reason though...I swear. I've got a new job!




The end of May, I'll be starting as a character designer on Nickelodeon's new show, "El Tigre". Yeaayyyaaa!!!! It's a brand spankin' new cartoon from husband/wife super team, Jorge Gutierrez & Sandra Equihua, and outside of my lame ass, they've put together a really talented crew. I'm super excited at the opportunity to work with such kickass people. Thanks, Jorge!!

So over the next two weeks, I'm packing up, searching for movers, and driving from Chicago to sunny Burbank. If anyone has a recommendation for some great apartment finding services, please drop me an email.

Let the adventure begin!!

Wow, that sounded cheesy.

Way to go, bro! You'll make a big splash at Nickelodeon! The sunny weather should agree with you, too. ;O)

By the way, (small print) nothing wrong with a little cheese!

About damn time! I figured you had to be getting all packed up when your blog "went dark". See you in Burbank, man. (Get used to it-- almost ALL of L.A. animation is in Burbank these days!) Drunken post-it battle to follow!

Congrats man, if you drop me a line I can put you in-touch with a buddy of mine who just moved up that way to work on the Simpsons. He did the whole apartment search and might have a few recommendations.

I'm looking at some of your designs and they just blow me away man. Great stuff, this new job is well deserved… you worked hard for it. Blow there socks off man!!! Might as well contact Glenn and get some tips on living in Cali.

Michael said...

Wow, excellent news Steve! Congratulations - your new adventure in SoCal begins.

As an old L.A. guy, I'd say go for "the Westside" so you don't go bonkers just up in the smoggy Valley all the time.

Lots to do in L.A. - hope you have fun!
