Globe and Mail story

Dakshana Bascaramurty from Globe and Mail contacted John K. and I for an interview, which was published today, and looks really great, thanks Dakshana!

Some things I need to clarify:
During the phone interview I did mention Sheridan college has wonderful teachers like Pete Emslie, Scott Caple and others who give the students hands-on explanations of good drawing methodology.
When I was asked about my many reasons to contact John k, one of them was that my art education in Israel at the time lacked methodology.


On Friday January 29th 2010, Globe and Mail printed a retraction, and fixed the online version of the article:

Editor's note: The original version of this story incorrectly stated that Mr. Avni's drawing classes in Israel and Sheridan College lacked methodology. This version has been corrected to state that this was true only of his drawing classes in Israel.

---------See? there's truth in the media-----------

The feature I worked on was "Everyone's Hero" during the pre-production stage, doing technical drawing.

The recognition by the Hollywood chapter of the International Animated Film Society refers to The 2008 Annie Awards.

Many thanks to the Globe and Mail for the kind article!
