I just came back from Nemoland and it was great. Eric Goldberg is an absolutely uber-talented man. He's up to every animation trick. The rough piece below was btw one of the things I dealed with in my workshop there. I talked a lot about reference material, inspiration, creation and the like.
I'm again way behind with answering e-mails, sending out things, replying to comments etc. So sorry for everyone is waiting, I will get back to it as soon as possible!

Apropos lectures, here are some recent pics of my this year's animation class at the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg. The students are highly talented and they are really fun to work with.
