The Tal-BOT

My friend from work Jeremie Talbot, his last day at Tippett Studio was Friday. To honor his leaving I made him a Tal-BOT. What is a Tal-BOT you might ask. That's a good question. Jeremie and I have been hiding a monitor connection piece on or around each other's desks for about a year now. Jeremie even sent it to my house via US Mail. Well last week I was out of town and Jeremie decided to get an entire box full of these parts and hide them all over my desk. I even found one in my cup of coffee that was left over from the morning prior to my departure. So I did what any animator with too much free time would do; I made a robot with all the pieces. This wasn't easy seeing as all the parts were hidden in places I hadn't looked in YEARS. However after finding all, or "most" as Jeremie says, I was able to start construction. Below is a picture of the final product.



Here's Jeremie with his Tal-BOT. He's normally a lot jollier than this photo, but it was his last day and he was "sad" Jeremie that day.




Good Luck at Pixar Jeremie. We'll miss you over here at Tippett.
