I met Washer back in 2007, after a church service. We met through my much more outgoing college roommate, saying that I would love to meet him. He is a pretty quiet man, not much to say. He gave me a DVD of his titled "I cant draw, YES YOU CAN" and had left my memory for a while. I just thought of him today as I was wondering if I should consider actively pursuing a career in animation now that I draw near to the end of my self paced studies in communications, and hope to see him in the near future.
