In front of Whole Foods this morning I ran into Mariana Fernandez (David Fernandez’s sister). She works at GSD&M (right across the street) and although I pass by there every day between 8 and 9 I had never run into her before. But today was my lucky day, and so when I spotted her I stopped to say hello and, amazingly, she informed me that David is in Austin! In fact he was at that very moment enjoying a cup of coffee over at the Seattle’s Best!!
I popped over to Seattle’s Best and sure enough there was good ol’ D3 sipping on a cappuccino. Apparently he had called me earlier this morning, but due to my extremely be-slumbered eye blearyness I failed to register the call.
Anyhow he is here on a one week break from school and will be spending most of it up in Temple visiting family. Before I split I did get to spend a few minutes checking out some of his sketches and animations- Dang does he have some fantastic looking work! I hope he gets his portfolio-website ready soon that y’all can see what I saw! Great Stuff!
