Don't be fooled by the hard to read signature, this drawing of Spirit is by none other than master animator James Baxter! Post comic con while back in Burbank, I was given a fantastic tour of Dreamworks by supervising animator and Joe's neighbour Marek Kochout. Of course I brought my sketchbook just incase. At the very end of the tour as we were walking out of the building, all hope seemed lost. Just then, we turned a corner and James Baxter was walking towards us! I froze up and could not muster up the courage to stop him but he waved hello to me and Marek (mostly Marek.) I figured it wasn't meant to be and that it was too awkward to stop him because he is probably very busy and I did not want to offfend him. However, as we continued to leave Marek asked me "so you know the animator James Baxter?" and I quickly replied "Yeah...I know we just passed him." I took this as a second chance and asked Marek if he would be willing to take my sketchbook and ask James later if he would be willing to do a small sketch for me. I told him that if he says no that it is completely okay but if he could just ask that it would mean a lot to me. Of course, James did do this great sketch and I can't thank him or Marek enough!
