Denmark! (it's a wrap)

Happy New Years! Hope 2011 is good to all of you guys and gals out there =] I just wanted to post a few pics of a tremendous opportunity I have to teach a character design workshop this week with the talented Florian Satzinger all the way in Viborg, Denmark. Hosting us is the super awesome, super duper dedicated Animation Workshop which has a beautiful campus where they work and play. Can't wait to start classes on Monday... wish me luck =]

I had a wonderful experience teaching such talented and dedicated students at the Animation Workshop. The facilities there in Viborg are top notch! The town is very charming and the Danish people are very welcoming. Thanks to everyone for their hospitality and a special thanks to Florian Satzinger for the invite, to Anja and Lana for all their help and guidance =] I wish all the students good luck with their final projects!

Thanks Erik. Copenhagen sounds really cool...if I can squeeze in a visit I'll def try. I certainly hope this isnt my only visit to Denmark though =]

Mark, thanks and I'd love to see what you guys are working on. Anja gave me a quick tour last night (it was a little dark) so i'm getting familiar with the campus... if you see me say hi and show me your stuff (i'm a big mexican guy with a beanie...that looks mid-eastern lol)

Thank you Kristoffer! I'm super excited to be here and grateful for the opportunity to share what I can when it comes to what we do =]
