The Terrible Thing of Alpha-9!

almost done! it's weird when 8 months of straight work and worry all slowly wind to a stop. it's kind of a pre-post-partum thing, where you stop thinking "all i need is rest" and start thinking, "okay, what next?"

until i can figure that out, i made some postcards for my thesis (of which the screening is may 7th i think). i'm really a child when things come in the mail for me, especially something printed. i'm so eagerly waiting that i just keep hitting refresh on the ups page, even though i know when it'll arrive.

if you want one, find me in the Digi lab, comment, or email, and i'll be sure to get one to you, no matter how far. i got 500 so i want to get them out, i can't stand to see unused printed things!

Hi Jake,

I saw your film last night at the animation screenings and was blown away! Great characters, solid story, loved the pacing and color pallet you used. Brilliant work! Best of luck.

Awesome short, man. Caught it on Cartoon Brew and it's one of my favorite shorts I've seen this year. Bookmarked!

If you send one of your beautiful postcards to Australia, I'll happily send you one of my crappy ones in return. Just like pen-pals.

Address on my site.

Many thanks. Love your work.
