I remember taking this picture in May of 2012, after flying up from CalArts to follow-up with Mr. Vertolli about my plans on enrolling into the Animation program, as well as show him my work from the previous five-week session in Valencia. So, here I am excited about our meeting and the encouragement that I should apply for the following spring semester, based on the level of my drafting skills, and what do I see emerging from bushes; the "Great Prince of the Forest" himself. Staring at me as if it was a sign from Walt Disney himself, I couldn't figure out if I was hallucinating. The reason for that feeling of displacement laid largely on the fact that I was standing in the northern part of the City of Oakland, face to face with a deer. What's the odds of that happening again?
