Dreamworks has made contact!

Mon Apr 15, 2013, 6:38 PM


I was sitting at my computer, working on the Ink act 2 comic, when my phone rang with an 818 area code. I picked up, and it was Dean DeBlois, the Director and Screenwriter for How to Train Your Dragon!!?! I was so surprised I had to ask for his name twice, hahaha!
He told me the plush reached Jeffrey Katzenberg's office, and he loved it so much, he immediately brought it to everyone else to show them. They were passing it around, taking pictures, playing with it. I could hardly speak talking to such a celebrity. Mr. DeBlois was surprised I had no sewing experience only a couple years ago, and they couldn't believe the detail in the eyes. He said that people there who do work with fabric and plushes, were blown away by the plush. I was about to fall on the floor I was so overjoyed. I felt like tears were moments away.
He said they will put something together to send back, AHHHHH!

There's probably a million things I could have talked about, and many things that slipped my mind being in the moment, but that's ok. I basically just thanked him gratuitously, and the call was over 4 minutes later.

My head is still in the clouds, I'm so happy!!!

That is Soo awesome! You are so lucky, and congrats! Who wouldn't love that plush :)
I really wish I knew how to contact dreamworks, but if I was there, I would ask him if he was gonna make toothless the only night fury...which I hope isn't the case xD
Moar night furies! Toothless must live on!

I'm so glad your beautiful plushies (and yourself, of course) got the recognition they truly deserve! I hope by doing this Dreamworks have learned their lesson on making horrid plush toys and begin manufacturing the cute bundle of scales we love. 
My dream is that on the release of HTTYD2, lovely smaller versions of  your Toothless plushies are released to celebrate it! I would buy one in a heartbeat! Could you imagine if they printed your name as the creator of the original design on the sales tag? 
It would probably be a 'EHMAIGAHD' moment for you!

Thanks so much! I'm sorta still in contact with them. Still praying something really good comes of this, but trying not to hold my breath. I wish I was going to Otakon this year so I could say hello again, but I don't think I can make it this time. :(

That is absolutely amazing! It just goes to show that when you put in hard work, it pays off.

Hopefully someone will post up some of those photos in the future for you to see!

Maybe one day they'll hire you to make a lot of plushies to sell in the licensed name of Dreamworks? :3 (since the Toothless ones they normally sell look nothing like him.)

I was admittedly a little nervous about them having a bad response (which seems silly, but you hear stories of such things and well...) so I'm very happy to hear their response and super pleased for you.

Yeah, I'm like, physically and mentally exhausted over it. I really didn't expect that. I'm like spam searching any twitter and facebook feeds I can find from the creators to see if anyone's mentioning it. Maybe tomorrow I'll find something.
