Welcome to the end of Two Thousand and Twelve!

Every year I like to sit down and do a recap of the things I’ve done during the last 12 months and this is my sixth such review!

2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

This year I decided to try something new by making a collage of pics from my favorite posts.

Clicking on any of these pictures will lead to their original posts, so feel free to explore!

That may seem like a lot but it’s actually short a bunch of stuff!

I didn’t make as many blog posts as I should have this year, so next year’s resolution is to try to go back to one a day if I can manage it.

Moment Of The Year… IS A TIE!

Getting the animation job that I did was a surprise to be sure, a high point in my carrier as a professional motion graphics guy.

This job opened new opportunities to me and even though I don’t currently have it, am still grateful and am riding the prosperity it gave me even now.

God Of AZA 01

AZA is important to me, and it was nice to be given the freedom to really sink my teeth into the project.

Being recognized for the hard work is such a foreign thing I don’t even know how to process it even now. I’m truly lucky to be working with such a family of entertainers.

So, as always the questions remains: “was 2012 better then 2011?”

YES!

Every year has felt like a setup for the next and this year felt like a little bit of payoff. I’m not done yet though, not by far, and 2012 has let me get ready for 2013 like nobody’s business.

Put me in couch, I’m ready!
