Friday Roundup

Doc Ed at Woodridge Elementary with lots of fun stuff to show off to the kids. Thanks for the photo Dr. Jones.

This week saw a lot of painting here at Rancho Ramirez. I've got thirty illustrations so far of pre-production art for the puppet show (which probably covers most forms of puppetry including animatronics) to be produced next year in Dallas.

Doc Ed hit the road this week visiting the kids at Fort Sam Elementary and Woodridge Elementary.

I did a bit of voice over work at the offices of Raining Popcorn Media this morning. They're as busy as ever over there but once things calm down for them we should have a chat about some projects they've had in mind for a while.

Tonight the work week will wrap up with more painting of pre-production art followed by an attempt to finish the Dalek I've been struggling to complete. Have a great weekend! Adios amigos!!

On the Road with Doc Ed

Yesterday morning started off okay for good ol' Doc Ed. I was schedule to do a presentation at Fort Sam Houston Elementary which is only ten minutes away. As usual, I got directions from Mapquest but I also got some from my contact at the school. Off I went with plenty of time to get there. I got to the base, passed the guardpost, followed my trusty map then proceeded to get terribly lost. I went around again to the guardpost for directions then got lost some more. I stopped to get directions from someone else in the hopes of getting my bearings and still I was lost. The street signs I was looking for were nowhere to be found.

Then, after driving in circles for half an hour, I decided to drive in what I believed to be the general direction of the school. Being lost on a military base is not a good idea because eventually you'll be noticed. That could be good or it could be bad. Luckily, I found the school and breathed a huge sigh of relief. From now on I'll carry a compass, maps and bread crumbs.

Dalek Dilemma

I've been tinkering with this Dalek for about a week now while taking a little breather from my work but my schedule has been so busy of late I haven't had the time to finish it. Daleks have a lot of details to paint. Mucho pain in the neck. Looking at it now I can see some areas that are a little off that will now drive me batty until I get a chance to fix them. Alas.
