The Fruits of Kane’s Labor, and the Labor of Kane’s Fruit

This weekend wraps up Kane’s first week working for Laika.  (For more information about his new company, check out the Laika link on the right under “blogroll”.)  He’s really excited about working for what seems to be a great company, and also about the project that he’ll be working on there, a stop-motion animated film called Paranorman.  He likes his coworkers and is making contacts and connections on that front.  And the job is keeping him very busy and engaged, challenging him and offering him plenty of chances to demonstrate his skills.  A new job can be intimidating, and becoming acclimated to it is almost like another job on top of the job itself.  So Kane is often tired when he comes home at the end of the day.

But he’s never too tired to read bedtime stories to Shaelyn and Davia.

Shaelyn snapped this shot of Kane on his way upstairs with a bedtime book.

And Kane’s ladies at home are all very proud of him and how hard he’s working.  And, of course, happy to see him when he comes home.

Kane’s also had his creative juices flowing at home in his own time, and he’s been working on Captain Pickle and Wonder Yam’s newest foes, the Bad Fruit Five.  He’s got some paintings of these guys in mind, coming soon, but you can check out what he’s done so far with them on his portfolio:  (which you can also find a link to under “blogroll”)

Sour Grape, one of the Bad Fruit Five
