2012 BLOG REVIEW

2012 was the worst year of my life. Such terrible things happened in continuous waves of debilitating awfulness that I spent most of the year staring at the ceiling in shock, seeing nothing, unable to write or even think beyond grief and despair.

Needless to say, not many blogs were written. However, here are some fairly coherent posts from between ghastly events in annus horribilus 2012:

MOCAP IS NOT ANIMATION  it's actors in Spandex.
WINEGLASS DESIGN - Form doesn't always follow function.
ANIMATION NOMINATIONS - OSCARS 2012 - Rango won.
COMFORTING and CONSOLING - How to comfort a friend.
TRUE STORY - A random phone call in NYC. 
CHOOSING A CHAIR - Designers: respect human anatomy, please.
SCIENCE IN CGI ANIMATION - Cloth, skin and hair.
LIKE A MOVIE - Real life has a little harshness in it. 
FREEDOM FROM MASS SHOOTINGS - Guns in the US.
The DANNY BOYLE SHOW - The Olympics opening ceremony.
The PORTS OF PARIS - Le Port des Champs Elysées
GOOD READS - Le Carré and Proulx
The CATCHER IN THE RYE - JD Salinger's lasting influence
CHOOSING AN AGENT - Tell us about yourself.
