I feel very fortunate to be part of the great northern California adventure of digital art and film. I had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most talented people in the digital art industry, the movers and shakers of the contemporary digital art world. Recently I have been thinking more and more of the opportunity we have as artists to influence the visual advancements for the greater good and for social change in the world. I believe change happens one person and one good and one single minded intent at a time. My friend Maria Lee invited me and a few friends from the film and game industry to donate art pieces to a great cause - I was really glad to see my friends rally around and make a difference. Thanks to Maria Lee and all my friends and of course John Lasseter & Pixar who generously organized and hosted the event.
