Jack Skellington & Zero Drawing by Teri Eckholm REALTOR

A couple of Octobers ago, I had the opportunity to draw at the Animation exhibit in Disney's Hollywood Studios during a family vacation. While my one son was riding the Tower of Terror for the tenth or eleventh time, my other son and I were given step-by-step instructions on how to draw the main character in the Tim Burton classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was a unique opportunity because while the classes go on year round, they only give instructions on Jack Skellington a few times a year, just before Halloween. 

The fun part about taking this class which is designed for all ages, is that everyone that follows the very simple directions, will leave with a drawing that resembles the instructors. I have related this process to real estate in the past in the blog post, REALTOR® Selection—One Size Does NOT Fit All!  In the post I showed Mickey Mouse drawings one from each family member. At the time my boys were in grade school but their Mickeys were as good, if not better, than ours. Listening and following directions is an important part of life.

Let Jack and his pal, Zero be a festive reminder of that! Happy Halloween!

Hey, you can always be an animator if real estate doesn't work :)  One of my clients is a Simpsons animator.  Interesting stuff.

Maggie--It is short and fun...we often go to more than one class when we visit.

Brian--Thank you!

William--I am well but busy. I am hoping to spend more time on blogging/commenting soon.

Jane--Doubtful that I have enough skill...unless someone wants to sit upfront and provide me with step-by-step instructions as with this pick. My film student son would enjoy spending time with your client...animation is quite a skill that he has tried but does most electonically. What a cool market to sell homes in...I'm certain you meet clients from many interesting walks of life. :)
