Hey folx!

I wanted to make a post to direct you to a new site we have just put up. Some of you may be familiar with the art that Timothy Albee has done in the field and in our community. Tim and I have been friends for a number of years now, in fact I consider him one of my best friends. He was gracious enough to allow me to put together a site for his upcoming project, Kaze: Ghost Warrior. This film is another of the many ways Tim has decided to give his gift of inspiring hope and dream building back to the community and this site honors his current effort.

Please feel free to stop into the site and also visit often. I plan to post regular updates of his progress along with exclusive shots and insight into the project. If you are not familiar with the project, you can also visit the official site which is linked below.

Big thanks to 4thorder for the assistance in making the site work, we are using a beta version of the content management system he is designing to run the backend stuff. If you are in the market for something like that (or any of the other many services he provides, you can find him at http://www.4thorder.us/ .

On a more personal note, I also want to take this opportunity to say that knowing Tim has been a true gift. I remember back in our earlier years of friendship, he introduced me to Lightwave back when it was still only for the Amiga. He was working on a couple of small fun projects and I honestly was interested but not enough to look further. Then at some point shortly after, he had a PC that he had built from collected parts that was put together in a cardboard shoebox with duct tape (yes we were both that poor even back then, hehe) and was running a very early version of Lightwave for PC. It was then that I actually touched LW for the first time and from that point on, we both delved further into the fun.

As you can see, Tim took a much different path than I, but our friendship never left us. He eventually went full on into the CG industry while I took an IT based path and became an off and on LW hobbyist. I am very proud of what Tim has accomplished in his life and what he has become. His intentions have always been honorable and I feel this is evident in all of his work.

His latest vision of sharing his knowledge and dreams with others is nothing short of what I would expect from Tim and I wish him nothing but the best in this and his future endeavors. I hope you all enjoy the new site! Take care....

I've been watching and waiting for Tim to release this for some time now. Looks great. Also have to give a hats off to his character animation/rigging book. Really is a lifesaver.
