It all starts with a simple...

What a beautiful Sunday! Perfect day for crunch time in a dark lab working on a piece of motion graphics!
The image above is a cel I saved. I was inking day after day, staying late, when all of a sudden animator Joe Peery was looking for someone to quickly animate Scooby-Doo. I stood up and said "I can do it!" This cel was the first one in the sequence, and when Joe saw it he said (paraphrased) "Gee, why don't we have you doing more animation?" It felt amazing to be validated by an animator of Joe's caliber.
