If there's one thing that I think is important is to be enthusiastic about your work, to get all excited about your projects, and be able to say that what you do for work is what you'd do for fun, too.
On Saturday afternoon (and much later, for some) we were at the afore-mentioned "Anime Geekfest", and I know I had fun. (I wish I made Bleach for a living... :P) It was really good to meet new people who share the same interests, because so far the only mode of communication for these hardcore anime enthusiasts was a Facebook group. The Ichigo vs. Naruto arguments sound a lot funnier in person!
Hopefully this blog will similarly serve as a meeting point for fans and animators alike, a place to discuss and learn about what's going on in animation in Kenya today. (Yes, such a creature actually does exist!) And maybe at some point down the line we'll be able to host our own colourful Gatherum. A brother can dream...
(The picture above has nothing to do with the post, but Made You Look! Hehe. Ok, you can look at it as an example of a character design from one of those animators we were talking about. Inspired by a Cartoon Network overdose.)
