Sharing is Caring

For some time now, I've been running a website called VFX Job Hunt.com, which is a site dedicated to helping digital artists in entertainment fields (like myself) find work, mainly by syndicating visual effects and animation job postings from around the web. While the job postings at VFX Job Hunt do include video game jobs, over time, I've been more and more of the opinion that game jobs deserve additional and separate attention. Thus, I recently created a separate similar site:

So, for all my aspiring and experienced game artist and programmer friends out there (and there are quite a few of you), please check out and tell your friends about GameDevGigs.com ...and more importantly, let me know what you think. Also, on a much less serious note, a very interesting friend of mine created this site that I'd also like to share:

Yet again, it's been quite some time since I've written a blog entry... and I'm quite sure that the few people who still read this blog will probably wonder why I still bother to post at this point... but just the same, while I currently have the time, energy and urge to write online, here goes...
. When I last blogged, it was right after the holiday season, and The Green Hornet (a motion picture I had done some work on) was soon to hit the movie theaters. Well, since then, the film loudly came and went from the theaters, and to my own mild surprise, in spite of some questionable casting, the Hornet did decently overall both at the box office and with critics. It has since come out on DVD and Blueray.
So what have I been up to since the winter months? Well, I did get to spend Easter week in Maui for my birthday back in April. (click here for photos) ...but aside from that all-to-brief tropical getaway, with no exaggeration, most of my awake hours over the first half of 2011 h…

European Holidays

Image
As many people know, I spent the recent X-mas and New Years holidays gallivanting around Italy and the French Riviera with the same friends that I went to South America with a few months ago... and while Colombia was fun back in November, this trip to Europe was considerably more exciting. Speaking as an artist and former teacher, I've always wanted to visit Rome specifically and glimpse such a place that clearly struggles with the accommodation the modern world amidst an amazing culture of historical and artistic tradition unlike any other.


Again, for the curious of mind, here are some travel photos...

Meanwhile, on another page of things going on in my life... While I was overseas, Jack Black's version of Gulliver's Travels came out in US theaters. The release of this film is something …
