One of the great things about the blogosphere, at least for animation buffs like myself, is that a lot of artists from big studios like Dreamworks and Pixar have started personal blogs, giving anyone who is interested a chance to see what they can create beyond the output of their day jobs. Case in point: Jim Capobianco, a story artist for Pixar, has been working, when he has free time, on a hand-drawn animated short called "Leonardo." He's created a blog where you can follow along with his creative process. Capobianco has been working on the short since 1999 (cut him some slack, animation is a busy business) but he hopes to have it finished by the middle of next year.
