I am a dirty press whore

So if you check out the latest issue of Animation Magazine, you can read a multi artist-interview about breaking into the field of animation prop design, where guys like me, Lance Falk, and Darrel Bowen give you the low-down on what it takes to get a job in this biz. If you already have a job, feel free to ignore it; You know what you're doing. To save you $6, I've posted the article below:

Hey, Chris: I love your blog, and I'm trying to get that FlickR badge you have on yours onto mine (with my art of course), but it keeps telling me something's wrong with the HTML.

Any ideas?

Chris Battle said...

John- I just copied and pasted the HTML that Flickr provided, so I dunno what's going wrong for ya. Sometimes this stuff takes alot of trial & error...
