Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

A huge thanks goes to my beautiful wife, Marne, for her unbelievable support and for wrestling with my infant daughter while I hid away in my office writing this book.

Thanks, too, to my daughter Makenzie, for making this world colorful. I'd forgotten how to laugh until you showed up.

To God, for creating pixels. I don't think I could have handled a real job.

To Patty Montesion, a force of nature disguised as a mild-mannered girl from Boston. Kings and emperors have fallen to less. Thank you for being unfathomably generous with your resources and your encouragement. If they could bottle what makes you tick, we'd be that much closer to world peace. And we'd all be called Baby Cakes.

Dion Scoppettuolo, Guido Hucking, and Greg Niles—thanks for trusting a man from a land of criminals with your amazing work of art.

Thanks to the incredible people at Peachpit: Special thanks to Anita Dennis for bearing with the jarring production schedule, and for not editing out my punch lines. Thanks to Serena Herr for your grace in clandestine times and your straight shooting; it's rare to find people so instantly trustworthy. Thanks to the rest of the production team for firing on all cylinders towards the end.

To Dave Tracey, one of the most amazing animators in the world, and to Chris Parkinson, a man who designs motion graphics the way the rest of us breathe: Thank you that you're both hidden in the sleepy suburbs of Sydney unknown to the rest of the world. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to exploit you and your collective creative genius.

Thanks to Haiti Harrison for gracing the greenscreen, to the boys from Reflecmedia for providing it, to Diana Weynand and Shirley Craig for housing it, and to Boston Camera for capturing it.

I think I'm supposed to thank my sixth-grade English teacher as well, but I have no recollection of who it was. Oh, and thanks, Mum.
