Welcome!

Greetings, fellow Bloggatarians!!

My name is Chance Raspberry and welcome to my official Animation Art Blog...which I like to call The AnimAttic. Animation, comics, and art in general have been my #1 passion since I was a small child. In fact, to this day I can hear my parents trying to explain to their five-year-old son how pausing the VCR (remember those??) for hours on end, to draw scenes from a favorite cartoon, would destroy the machine. We lost more VCR's that way!

My family and I are originally from Tennessee. In 1983, I moved with my parents to Los Angeles, CA at the ripe old age of two...been living (and drawing) here ever since! Like most of the kiddies I grew up with, I loved watching the after-school and Saturday morning cartoon shows. The difference was that immediately after (and sometimes during) these frequent viewing sessions, I'd grab the nearest pen, pencil, or crayon I could find and try to recreate what I saw on the screen.

Since then, life has been quite a journey. I've attended various art classes and schools, including the CSSSA Animation Program at Cal Arts, Otis College of Art & Design, and The Animation Academy of Burbank, CA! Along the way, I have had the priviledge of working with the fine people at Cartoon Network, Film Roman, InkWorks, Inc., and several other freelance opportunities. This blog is a collaboration of personal favorites from each of those experiences, along with several works from my own projects involving animation, comics, and art. I truly appreciate all of you taking the time to explore my world and I sincerely hope you enjoy what you find enough to return again. I'll be adding to and updating this blog as frequently as I can with NEW and current artwork from my animated projects! So until then, here's wishing you, The World, an exceptional rest of the year! God bless!!

From The Heart,
