Hiya, boys and girls!

Sorry I've disappeared for so long. It's been a busy time for my family, and they are priority number one in my life, so I had to put personal art projects on the back burner for a little bit. We're getting settled into a new home, and the new school year is underway, so I should be back to putting up more drawings again really soon!

Meanwhile, you guys should check out this incredible looking game called Hyper Light Drifter on Kickstarter www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… . If you're as in love with retro action rpgs as I am, you will love it.

See you soon!

A little while back, I posted an answer to a question on tumblr that has gotten an unexpectedly enthusiastic response. I tried to upload the comic here on dA, but kept running into issues.

Anyway, if you're interested in a little unsolicited life advice you can read it here. anthonyholden.tumblr.com/post/…

Take care, all!

Dudes and Dudettes,

Sorry for the radio silence. I've been at home with my family spending some quality time with OUR NEW BABY!! I'm back at work now, but I did get to take a couple of weeks of paternity leave which was amazing. You guys, if you haven't had a baby you should definitely give it a try. I mean after you get married, that is. Let's not get carried away here. Anyway, babies are seriously the BEST.

Things at home are super busy these days, but I'll try to check in with new doodles when I can. Until then be good, everyone!

You may have already clicked on these, but here are some animated gifs of my babies being adorable:

Dudes and Dudettes,

I've been getting some requests on dA and from my facebook page www.facebook.com/pages/Anthony… about what sort of brushes I use in Photoshop. I put them online so anyone can easily download them. If you're interested, you can find them here sites.google.com/site/aholdenf…

EDIT: the .tpl file is for CS6. Some folks have been having issues with usability. If anyone has an idea for a work around, let me know!

EDIT #2: Here is a link to a .zip file containing the same .tpl, since it has been suggested to me that this may help sites.google.com/site/aholdenf…

Today, my wife and I celebrate 8 years of marriage. A pretty special day for a really special gal.

I made an animated short to celebrate. You can watch it here vimeo.com/54317933

Guess what, everybody?  We're moving to Oregon!  These past couple of years at DreamWorks has been amazing and leaving is bittersweet, but opportunity has come a'knocking and we are northward bound.  I'm very excited to be starting at Laika soon and I hope to be back on my bicycle and posting more cartoons when we get settled in.



Take care of the internet while I'm gone!  (And don't forget to feed the fish.)

So, I guess it's the new year (some weeks ago).  I'd taken a small break from drawing due to a minor injury that was causing some stress on my drawing hand, but it's feeling better now--and I'm back!

I hope everyone has been enjoying 2012; it seems like good things are happening.  Here's to much creativity and general silliness this year!

I'll have a small piece in a group show at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA.  The show is called "What If..." and will feature small pieces from a bunch of artists representing a handful of animation studios.

The show opens on December 10th.  Come if you can!

I'm overwhelmed by the amount of positive feedback!  Thanks so much to everyone who left kind words.  It was a bit much to go through in a day (I still haven't read everything).  If you had a question that got buried and you want an answer, feel free to ask it again here.  Things at work have been a little nuts lately, but when they slow down I hope to put some more stuff up.

Meanwhile, I'm selling original ink drawings on my Tumblr anthonyholden.tumblr.com/

See you around soon!
