Recently came across some pics from my early days at Disney and thought that I’d share.

Hello Mr. Blaise
I’m Jag Vang, an independent comic book artist, who just stop by this site due to my own internet curiosity. It must be a blessing for you to work with so many great team at Disney. I envy you a lot. In fact, you may even become my art mentor. Even though I’m a comic book artist, animation is something that I am fond of as well. Just seeing your old pictures reminds me of myself who worked hard chasing but not hoping to achieve a career but never did made it. Even to this day, I am still persistent to catch this dream mine. Its sad that Disney layoff so many artists. I hope to talk to you sometime in the future. Thank you for your time.
