On inspiration

The crazy thing about being here at Disney is that you are always meeting and running into people whose work you've admired for years.  Artists whose work has help shape your own aesthetics in your formative years.  In my two short weeks here already I've met so many animators, concept artists, story folks, directors, whose work I've looked up to for most of my career, and now they're your colleagues, working right along beside you.  Superstars, in my eyes!  One day you're watching these guys talk on DVD's, the next day you're going to animation meetings with them. It's pretty surreal actually, and I hope I remain excited & passionate than become jaded & resigned.
