If you'd ask me to predict how 2012 would unfold I wouldn't have even been close. First off, we're all still here so the Mayans were totally full of shit.
2012 saw me move to a new City almost blindly. What started as a 2 month foot in the door in the animation industry turned into an awesome year full of awesome projects. Couldn't have asked for a better way to get started in this crazy animation business! My wife and I have made lots of great new friends, found lots of great food carts, and drank lots of great beer. But hands down the most awesome thing 2012 brought us was the birth of our gorgeous daughter Eliana Shae Hayford. Definitely didn't see that one coming in 2011!
2012 has all in all been a pretty great year with hints at great things to come in 2013. Here's hoping that 2013 will not just live up to, but surpass 2012!
Happy New Year!
Animator, artist, musician and all around pretty awesome guy.
