Re-doing some scenes with the fisherman and the first encounter with the fish. I like it much better, but still work through doubts. It’s quiet in the morning before the mayhem starts. My cat Orson lays on my desk while I work with his head on my scanner. The fish has gone through yet another design tweek.

Too much craziness to get much work done today. My daughter Daisy’s promotion from middle school ( I remember those tough years). Running over to see my other daughter get a “Good Citizen” award from her school. We should get “good citizen” awards as adults if we pay our taxes and stay out of jail. Yay. Congratulations.

Going through assignments from my class and running back to jot down new ideas with the ending of Fishhead. God I miss having my storyboard assistant Edgar who could decipher every blue line I did, and do a beautiful finished drawing. But I made a vow to complete as much of this just myself. One of my macs is acting cranky. Time to back up.

Class conferences today. Daughter packing for Hawaii. Getting as much work done before it gets hot in my studio. Still go back and forth on the ending of Fish Head. It bugs me. Still have time while I’m animating. Crap. Out of coffee. Need to do something about that. Wife and I watched the movie about the rock climber who had to cut his arm off to survive. Reminded me of my divorce. Onward.
