from Jon Saunders on Gary:
"In a time when we are so used to crispy 3d animations with cutesy round beavers and big eyed rabbits as the main characters, that only emulate what Pixar churns out on a yearly basis, I find animations with this illustrative style and somewhat risque storyline to be a far cut above the rest.The Supinfocom and Gobelins students have learned a very hard and important lesson with their software and that is to not let it dictate their style."

When was the last time you took time-off to witness a sunset?
On the shores of Corong-corong, in the town of El Nido in Palawan, we chanced upon a whopper of a sunset, the mere memory of which still gives me goosebumps today.
