Entry #3

An update

2013-08-08 00:55:33 by Weaksauce

So I'm not entirly sure if anyone still follows me on Newgrounds anymore since I haven't posted anything in about the last four years.... But just in case I thought I'd give you an update on what I've been doing with myself since then.

After catching animation fever thanks to Newgrounds, always chasing that weekly 1st place and never quite getting there I went off to college to try and make a career out of it. Since I've graduated I landed myself a job working at Titmouse Inc in LA. In the 4 years that I've been working here I've seen the studio grow from 30 people to nearly 250 with new branches popping up in New York and Canada, and have gotten to work on all of the Adult Swim shows that I was a huge fan of growing up...

I guess what I'm getting at here, is that I don't think that any of this would have happened if I hadn't found out about Newgrounds. Knowing that as a 14 year old kid I could get my work seen by thousands of people, millions potentially if I made something really stunning. That really drove me more than anything else in the early days... To any out there who used to follow me back then and would give me encouragement, I owe a lot to you guys too.

Anyways, I think I got my point across... Remember I'm an animator, not a writer, so this is the best you'll get out of me.

haha, hey, welcome back. I hope you stick with us! i don't know how people like "Team Meat" can make a bunch of money from Newgrounds....then use it as free BETA testing for a "prototype"...then go on to never mention it again or act like they could have done it without Newgrounds.

I wonder how many great dreams were realized here?

Oh geez man it's so cool to see you back. You make me feel old. I remember listening to your "One, Two" song way back when on your website, along with all of your animations. It sounds like you're on your way to great things sir! You've still got a fan in me :)

So you work on Adult Swim shows? That's pretty cool, though I haven't watch AS in ages because of other distractions. Mind naming off a few show's you've worked on?

I used to watch you, about a decade ago? Your movie "True North", was my favourite. I used to make animations on this website about 11 years ago, but eventually gave up and went on to live my life. Didn't touch animation in any form until December of 2014 where I started to make comics about veganism. Now I am drawing comics every day and have nearly 700 likes in less than a month. Animating again after so long feels weird, and made me go and check back on my roots, which is why I'm here leaving this comment. Anyway, glad to hear from you. Peace!
