      I would have stopped at the BotCon booth & said hi back in 07 & 10, but I was too busy shopping & attending events...& you were busily sketching for folks so I didn't want to interrupt. I talked to the other team members though, all great folks.

      So now I can finally stop & say what I was going to:

      Thank you for all the years of wonderful toys, ideas, & designs. You, along with other designers & indie toy makers have been a long time inspiration for me & someday I hope to make & sell my own toys. The opportunity of being able to witness and experience a toy's entire journey, from paper to product has always fascinated me. Tomorrow I will be beginning a class on 3-D printing & how it is utilized to manufacture prototypes for various industries, including toys.

      Throughout my life, much of your work has wound up in a toy box, or on a shelf of mine, played with & well appreciated...

      ...As a boy, I remembered reading articles from the Collecting Toys magazines my father would bring home, where you were interviewed for your work on G.I.Joe & Batman. To a kid, the idea of growing up and having a job where you design toys seemed like a dream come true. Though I have yet to fully reach that dream, I still pursue it, in hopes that one day I can walk into a store with my future children, point at a toy, & proudly say "Daddy made this." To have that sense of achievement, where one walks into a store and sees their finished work on display, not in a gallery behind glass and velvet roped stanchions, but on a shelf for all to access, take home, and enjoy what one has created, would be the greatest feeling of accomplishment as a product designer.

      And with that, I wish you the very best of luck in your new venture. Though you will be missed from your former position, you have left in your wake an incredible legacy of fun for us to look back on, pick up, & enjoy. God Bless.
