In addition to working on a wide variety of animated features and shorts, Brian is also a novelist. (His first book, "Eve", is shown above.)

Brian still returns to animation from time to time, but his first love is writing. He has just completed a second novel, "GENeration eXtraTERrestrial", coming out right around now. (And yes, he has a pen name: "Aurelio O'Brien.")

Boy, that peter schneider fellow sure must be a complete a-hole. I don't think I've ever read a kind word about him. And he sure doesn't come across as a likeable guy on that Waking Sleeping Beauty documentary. I guess it's no wonder he was fired eventually too. Anybody see the Sister Act musical he directed? I didn't think so...

I wouldn't worry too much about Peter. He's comfortably well off after presiding over Disney Feature Animation for a decade.

It's interesting to hear that no tones and hi-lites was considered a limitation, since I always have felt that it looks better without them. It's especially effective in the technique that he mentioned when just fading to character night-colors when going in and out of shadows... always looked rich and full. Ken Anderson is the king.

Tones tend to muddy up the line and structure of the character... especially the soft tones that feature would do (*cough* Princess and the Frog *cough* )

Just emphasize that we're seeing drawings.
