I just joined the group, and I thought I should introduce myself, so there it is. My usual introduction/bio goes something like this:
Working in the Film Visual Effects, Animation and Game industries since 1989, I'm left handed and currently live and work in Los Angeles with my wife and our two robot dogs. I'm also the Director of Technology at Meemle, a company specializing in mobile applications for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.
When I'm not working, I carry around a black sketchbook with rounded corners, an elastic closure and a handy inner pocket. You can see some of my work on Flickr.
Although I have to admit that I like watercolors and I really can't stand landscape format sketchbooks (why is it that every single sketchbook manufacturer is obsessed with the idea that all watercolorists want to do is paint landscapes?!?), so I have a bit of a love/hate relationships with Moleskines.
Their watercolor sketchbook has very nice paper but is in the wrong format, and I find that all their other sketchbook have paper that don't really agree with watercolors, or any kind of wet, messy media.
So the first thing I did when I received my Moleskine Japanese Pocket Sketchbook is to rip it apart and rebuilt it with watercolor paper (Papier D'Arches, cold pressed, 180gsm) but if you miss the old paper, feel free to "multi-media" some in place when you get my sketchbook...
This being said I'm really excited to join this group, and I'm starting to prime my little sketchbook before sending it on it's way.
