Home sweet home.

Many of my co workers have told how great it is to come home to their kids, especially after a frustrating day. I dont have any kids of my own. But Yeah, I can see that.

So yeah, it seems lately the animation blogosphere has James Baxter fever! Kevin Koch has posted some Baxter pencil tests from when he assisted him on Sinbad. Jim Hull posted some pretty detailed notes from an animation lecture James gave at Dreamworks. And finally, Clay Kaytis has posted the third and final part of his James Baxter interview on the Animation Podcast! James talks about supervising the animation of Belle in "Beauty and the Beast," When he was 23. It's cool because....Wait what? 23?! Like 4 years younger than I am now 23? I quit art!

So here's a choice sequence talked about in the podcast that James worked on in the Prince of Egypt:
Burning Bush sequence

Cmon! Lets quit art together!

I can testify Bobby...coming home to the kids is the most amazing thing. No other feeling like it.
I can also testify of the recent Baxter craze...he sure does have the ablility to make you want to quit art...that or want to be way better.
Anyway...great work here dude!

Bobby...if you have kids before doing a feature film I'm going to scissor kick you. Like, right when you least expect it; going out to get some groceries, going over bills in the comfort of your home, heading out to your car whilst juggling papers and your morning coffee.

Just a warning. Take it as you will.

Damn, Bobby! You pretty much nailed what it feels like when I get home to my 2 year-old. It's fun experiencing the world from a 2-year-olds perspective. Things around the house, which I would have usually taken for granted are the like the most amazing toys for my son.

It reminds me of a George Bernard Shaw quote. "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."
