A Sad Day


       Yesterday we lost a good man. Jules Jammal was a teacher, an animator, a Shrunkenheadman, a father, a husband, and a friend. He was the man who introduced me to Maya and the world of 3D animation and was a huge inspiration as to how I go about my animation today. I still remember the last conversation I had with him was a few months ago, where we talked about the craziness of being an SHM president, and he told me about his baby girl, Noelle. "She's starting to get an attitude," he laughed. He never ceased to smile or miss out on a handshake. Within a day of his passing you can see and feel the love we all had for this man, and the photos, messages, and articles continue to fly high with support.
       Jules passed away too soon, and I think the only thing I can do is say— from one Shrunkenheadman President to another— thank you for being an amazing friend and mentor. May you rest in peace and paradise.
Always fire it up. Always SHM.
