Wow! After The Art of Animation Tumblr posted my work I had a huge influx of followers, and I really wanted to say thank you for taking an interest in my work.  

"THANK YOU!!!!!!"

I also wanted to give an extra thank you in the form of FREE signed prints on fancy paper to the first people that message me. 

Thank you again! More stuff soon, I promise.


The last section of what is now the Pacific Coast Highway opened 85 years ago this summer (85 years and one month ago, to be exact: June 29, 1929). Back then, it was called the Roosevelt Highway.

Above is a scene from the opening ceremony for the final link in Malibu. Scott Harrison has more, including part of the original Times story, at Framework.
