We had a blast at the Design Family Reunion conference in Monterey, CA last week. The über patient Chris Sickels of Rednose Studio spent the day teaching a bunch of designers, illustrators and writer the painstakingly slow, yet fun art of stop motion animation. Chris supplied the set, props and his wonderful puppets that he designs and sculpts, all of which fit into a suitcase! This is what we did. Got to see some old friends from around the country and more importantly get to meet some new friends. More info over at the Rock, Paper, Ink blog.
