VACATION…

” I GET THE JOB DONE/ BUT SOME DAYS I WANNA TAKE OFF/
D BE LIKE “WE AINT GOT NO TIME FOR THAT!/
?UESTLOVE SAID “WE AINT GOT NO TIME FOR THAT!”/
MY OLD BIRD LIKE, “WE AINT GOT NO TIME FOR THAT….”

So, i can finally say, that the second season of the hit show, Aaron McGruder’s “The Boondocks” animated series is behind me (for now). i’ve just finished production on season 2 and i have to say it was groundbreaking, exillerating, extremely fucking hard, depressing,insightful, meaningful, a learning experience, important, time consuming, best of times, worst of times, all encompasing and inspiring experience for 3 years of my life that i will take with me onto my next shows/projects. It’s easily one of the best things thats happened to me as an artist, to my career and as a person. And i will say, when the trailer premieres next month at the Boondocks Season 2 Panel at SDCC, you’ll see all the hard work that went into this show on all fronts and why i can walk away proud with my chest puffed and chin up (and wiping away a single tear). and also why it will easily be the BEST-LOOKING american animated TV show airing this year (we BLOW AWAY SEASON 1, quality-wise).

Special thanks to : Aaron McGruder and staff for the experience and opportunity and for helping to produce such a ground-breaking set of new animated episodes thats sure to change the game yet, again.

UPDATES/PROGRESS:

I just finished up work on the final fight sequence in the Season Finale of “The Batman” season 5 animated series.

I’ll be going on a MUCH-NEEDED, WELL-DESERVED VACATION to ROME, LONDON and PARIS this thursday, JULY 5TH ,for a couple weeks. so you wont hear from me for a while.

I will return to earth at the end of july, invigorated and inspired, full of photos and sketches that i will post.

Almost immediately upon my return, i will begin work on my new project:

BEN 10 ANIMATED SERIES REVAMP!!!

I’ll be rocking out insane action sequences and, can’t get into too many details but will say it’s Story Edited by a great peer and co-worker and someone i’ve always wanted to work with, legendary writer/creator Dwayne McDuffie ( Milestone Comics/ Justice League Unlimited). More news as its announced…

wish me luck and thanks for the support!!

i’ll see you guys end of july. keep an eye out for Season 2 of The boondocks this fall, 2007!

i remain y’all

Raw, the 1, like 5 divided by 4.
