That Hamster in Story

This is story artist Mark Walton's year, no question. He was tapped for some scratch a while back and it's worked out okay for him.
In Sunday's (11/15) New York Times: "The Voice Behind the Disney Drawing Board". It's fun to see the Times apply their Grey Lady treatment to a description of Mark and his infamous cubicle(shown above in a photograph by fellow artist Marc Smith). I don't believe for a second that he was really "nervous", though--more like his regular-grade joie de vivre.
And here's a brand-new, fun companion website for "Bolt", You Are Fully Awesome!, where the fanboy hamster becomes your biggest fan.
Check him out!

Yay for Walton! It's good to see the Times profile a story artist (though the media continues it's fascination with front-line talent over behind-the-lines talent).
Mark is my new hero, He was my teacher back in Calarts. One of the best! I can't wait to see Bolt!
