It's on folks!

As always I am excited to see everyone out for this yearly tradition..

That said, I'm making some changes to Sketch Jam ®, starting with this upcoming event. Instead of holding it in December, I've decided to hold the Jam in the second week of the new year in order to better ensure EVERYONE can participate. Many students have to travel home right after the semester ends or have other family obligations due to the season. Alumni have other work parties they have/want to attend. AND last but certainly not least, I want to be more inclusive of the incoming January ANI and ILU students in order that they may enjoy the fun and benefits of Sketch Jam ®.

I can only do one a year, I wanna make the most of it!

What a great way to start the new year together!!

Check out all the details and join up here:

Design Lecture Series

As part of my Design Lecture Series, our third semester students will be treated to a couple of talks on being a design professional in today's Animation/Illustration industries, by Seneca Animation Alumni, Aaron Hong and Gavin Ball. They'll be discussing their careers to date, their design process, how to get where you wanna go and answering your questions along the way. Gavin's talk, unfortunately had to be moved to next semester, but no worries - it'll be great.

Stay`tooned for details in January - You don't wanna miss it!

See you there,
