Chuck Pyle invited me out to view and judge the Academy of the Arts University student show. Yesterday was the judging and, while a tough assignment, I had a great time with it. These kids are amazing. Kudos to Chuck for keeping the judges focused while also giving us the latitude to shape the awards as best we felt they should go. And kudos to the great group to jury with: Dice Tsutsumi and Jennifer Chang from Pixar, illustrator Robert Hunt, and artist rep Richard Solomon. I'm looking forward to meeting the students and seeing their portfolios tomorrow.
