Meet & Greet yesterday, t-shirts today

Todd Luallen came yesterday and spoke to everyone at the Meet & Greet. He's the Lead Animator at Trion World Network. It was a good turnout! He showed us some of his work and talked about a couple animators he recently hired. His company is based in Del Mar. In early September they will be moving to a different office in Del Mar which is triple the space they have now. I'm trying to arrange a couple of internships with them for the fall quarter.

Today we'll be silkscreening the t-shirts in the grassy area behind the parking lot from 12-1pm and again from 5-6pm. Hopefully you brought a t-shirt or you can get one at lunchtime!
