A little chat



Next week at the Society of Illustrators, my friend Chris Wedge and I will be joined in a conversation about our careers in animation by a fellow named Joe Strike. Chris, as I'm sure you already know, is one of the founders of Blue Sky Studios and director of the animated features, Ice Age and Robots. Joe is a journalist with a particular obsession for animation. He is both connoisseur and geek and a pleasure to chat with. If you're in town, please join us next Thursday, May 12th at the Society. Go here for further details.
Meanwhile, I've been meaning to post this Scrat film for months. Though it's ostensibly the teaser for Ice Age 4, Continental Drift , I think it holds it's own beautifully as an individual short film.

  1. That Scrat short film is awesomely funny. I always wondered how the continents were formed. Wish I could make it to see you guys talk shop.
