Bye Steve!

Yesterday, Steve Bristow, who had been the director of Saladin: The animated Series for the past 2-3 years, treated us to dinner. This month is his last service to the project, so the whole team had put together an amazing creative PLUS wacky book of Thank You's (thanks, Sandra, for doing a wonderful job of compiling it :D). Although I don't do portraits, I just had to do this (below is my contribution to the book):

Note to kids: Horses don't go "WOOF! WOOF!"
(This is just an in-joke between the team)

No farewell is complete without a going away gift, so we also made a mock game card which consists an in-joke we've been passing around for years. It is definitely begging to be made! We are already getting crazy ideas from it >:)

The front of the card

The back of the card.
Thanks, Eisu, for the wonderful description:

"To be used when logic is absent
and ideas are out of control.
Use with discretion!"

The background for the frame

The (mock) finalized look after laminating the cards and framing it up. The cards also double as bookmarks!

The final product in a frame:

Prezzie time!

Unfortunately, I am remembered as the girl who screams a lot (I'm a jumpy person). But this is how we will remember you, Steve :D
The original Highway Star!

Thanks, Steve, for everything. Good luck in your future undertaking and be seeing you!

Thanks Mel for devoting a page in your blog to me. Working with you and the rest of the guys n gals on Saladin was definitely a blast. There are so many funny memories of working in that big room.
