CARTOON BLOCK Interview


I was recently interviewed by Evan Burse of CARTOON BLOCK as part of their "How To Be an Animator" series, and gave him the lowdown on my career in the biz and also tips to young hopefuls looking to break in. Fueled by lots of coffee and aided by some fancy editing, I sound like I actually know what I'm talking about!
