Kubert School Graduation

Twenty seven years have passed since I graduated from the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, Inc. Hard to believe so much time has gone by.
I got in to the school right after graduating high school, and managed to hang on for the three years. I went to class during the day, had maybe an hour or so before I had to go to work at a local bodega, then home by 11 to get started on my homework. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but that's why you do stuff like that when you are young.
This picture is of the trailer where I studied animation with Milt Neil and Bruce Wands.

The 1984 graduating class was treated to a great dinner at Larson's Turkey Farm.
Ah....memories.

It is nice to have good memories. Sometimes you wonder how you got everything done....I guess it is the youthful vigor that gets us through those hard times with long hours and bad food.
