GO WEST YOUNG MAN, GO WEST...

This week has been bitter sweet. I've been at Blue Sky for eleven and a half years and I've had the opportunity to learn from a lot of amazing people there. Now, I'm off to Seattle to join an intimidatingly skilled group of artists at a company called arenaNet. They made a fantastic game called guild wars a few years ago, and are working on even more amazing stuff now. To all my ex Blue Sky peeps, I'll miss ya!

Wha?!! Don't leave us!!! I heard some folks were leaving, but not you, please not you.
Alright, if you have to go. Leave! *Sniff*. And don't look at me with those *sniff* big puppy dog eyes! Get outta here! *tear*

Daniel,

Congrats my friend. I know this is what you wanted and I know it will absolutely make you a better artist. Not to mention this move will give you and yours a life those in our generation could have only dreamed of.

Be well my Brother.

Congrats on the move and new gig. You were awesome to work with on the first "Ice Age", and I've been watching all your stuff ever since. Best of luck on the new job!

Danny boy,
timing is everything! I can't believe my good fortune at having taken two modeling classes with you, just in the nick of time before you are packing off to new frontiers. I hope we'll stay in touch. You're a class act and real gent. Best of luck in Seattle.

Beep, beep!

There will be a huge memorial crater left in your wake Danny. It will be called Williams Memorial Crater at Blue Sky. At the bottom will be a DANNY-CREATURE holding a bell which you try and hit with pennies from up above. When you connect, a giant hologram of you will tell a joke. It will be sweet.

Good luck.

Danny -

I didn't get a chance to say hello again, let alone good bye - I started back at Blue Sky the week after you left. Swung by your cube and they said you were gone. (whaaaa!). It was great having you as a teacher and a coworker. Safe trip and enjoy the PNW!
