Burbankin'...


So I'm all settled into the new place in Burbank finally. The cross country trip from Chicago to Burbank was gorgeous. It was really cool to watch the landscape go from wide open farmland, to snow capped mountains, to rocky desert, and finally settle into palm trees. Other than one of our cats shredding two chairs in our hotel room in Vegas, the trip went super smooth. Bad kitty!!

Outside of that, the new job has been fantastic. It's great to be part of such a talented crew. Hopefully through the process of osmosis, some of that goodness will rub off on me while I'm there. Ha!

I just got my internet this weekend, so I can start working and posting up some new doodles again. I know...it's been too long.

I also gotta say thanks to everyone who replied in my last post. Your support mean a lot to this lil' "canuck-ian".

-Steve.

I am really happy to hear you're doing great, Steve! I wish you were working at Nickelodeon earlier--as in January 2004 early--lol cos I went for a portfolio review at that time and got to visit Stephen Silver and it would've been the best to meet you too! Good luck with everything, I know you're gonna kick major butt! C:

Kevin Barber said...

Oh,...i misunderstood. When you told me you were going to go to California and work for 'NICK,....I thought you meant that you were going to work for some DUDE named NICK. You know,...like,............." Nick's airbrush t-shirts" on the beach or something. Oh well,...this is cool too.

Geoff Leonard said...

Hey just wanted to say congrats on the nick job in burbank. My name's Geoff I went to the same college as your little brother Jon. I was a year ahead of him but him and another guy named Bryan honestly had the best art work of thier class. Altho it seem you guys are completely opposite in styles, but you are definately similar in drive.

Shellie K said...

HEy Steve... Thanks so much for the congrats!!!
Yea we just put our son in the middle of all our toys..
Looks just like E.T.

Hope to meet you soon when i go bug Howie and a couple other
friends at Nick...Take Care. And good luck on Jorge's show. HE'S SO AWESOME!
tell him I said "HI"

Noel Farrell said...

Glad to hear you made it out there without incident Steve.

Not sure if you heard, but Em's closed down.

( A moment of silence for all the snack-packs of the past.)

You never know, you may have a fellow Canuck wanting to drop down for a visit some day. Let me know if it's worthwhile.

Jasen said...

I’ve seen that puppet masturbate himself silly.

Doktor Viktor Von Kreep said...

Hey Steve! Congrats on the new job and move! I miss Burbank big time, and that's why I'm planning on moving back next year.

Tell Sandra and Jorge I say hell-o!
