Ollie Johnston


Hey guys. Man I've been so busy lately. Got my portfolio I'm working on, and things have been real busy at work lately. Anyway, I just wanted to take the time out and comment on the recent passing of Ollie Johnston. The last of the "9 Old Men". A true inovator for his time and contributed to the foundation of animation that we aspire by today. I am very proud to be apart of his legacy and I hope that I can put my mark in a field where many have tried to go above and beyond just normal film making. Words can't express the what Ollie and his peers have accomplished, but I hope that we all can take pride and encouragement in their following. Take care.
