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!!!
