Please keep voting in the competition! We still have a long way to go!

Squeak is on Nicktoons!!

Hey guys! My animated short, "Squeak", is gonna be shown on Nicktoons Network (not the main Nickelodeon channel) this Wednesday, Nov. 18th at 4:45PM Central time. Please tune in!

But, there's another task at hand! While I didn't win any of the main awards, there is also a "Viewer's Choice" award that I have a shot at winning! You can vote online here:

If I win, I'll hopefully get a lot more recognition and get closer to achieving my dream job of working on an animated series! Please vote and tell everyone you know to vote as well! THANK YOU! :)

Robot Skulls!

Here is the label for the DVD that will pop out of the case I mentioned in my previous post. Damn, that was a run-on sentence. Wait, who cares, it's a blog.

The idea here is that this is the skull of the robot featured on the DVD case. It will look good when it's put together, I HOPE.

I hope you like it!

Also, do yourself a favor and watch Usavich on Youtube. It's amazing. There's 39 episodes, and each is about 90 seconds of goodness. It gets better and better throughout the series. Here is the first episode:
