Brad and Rachel were in Burbank this weekend representing Powerhouse Animation at the CTN Animation Expo!
Our first stop upon arrival in California was to visit fellow 2d animation studio, Titmouse, Inc! (they make cartoons).
One of my friends and ex-coworkers from Borders in Tucson, Nico Colaleo, is now an animator there! He was nice enough to show us around the studio. Thanks, Nico! If you aren't familiar with his work, check it out... he's amazing!

We got our booth set up on the CTN Expo floor and are ready to talk toons for the next 3 days!
There were tons of amazing artists in attendance at the convention, including long time friend of the studio (and animation legend), Stephen Silver. Stephen let us follow him around for much of the weekend while we were in awe of his artistic genius.
Here I am with the very handsome and talented Ryan Benjamin, another incredible artist. Ryan also worked as a Powerhouse freelancer on our SOE DC Universe Online motion comics!
The incredible Kris Pearn talks to adoring fans and spreads his Canadian charm at his booth. Kris was nice enough to make a visit to Powerhouse back in June for a storyboarding workshop and we are still amazed by his talent and generosity.

Rod Guen was there too!
We also got the chance to meet the very talented Mike Yamada and his beautiful (and equally talented) wife Victoria Ying!
At the end of Day 3 we donated our Epic Mickey sign to a very excited fan who was working the Cal Arts booth. I hope she treasures this forever.
And now, several photos of french fries and beer...
