I’m speaking at Blend!

If you’re gonna be in Vancouver October 16 + 17, I’ve been invited to speak at a two-day festival here called Blend. It sounds like it’s going to be more of a party than a conference, for lovers of animation but also other creative things too (at least I hope so otherwise they’re going to be severely disappointed when they realise I’m not an animator).

Tickets are available at http://blendfest.ca.
