I received a sketch of Nemo and Squirt from Disney animator Victor Navone back in November. I figured I would post it today as it's my last response of 2009! Victor has worked on many notable Disney films such as Finding Nemo, Cars, Monsters Inc. and the Incredibles. I would have posted this earlier but I also had Victor sketch Lighting McQueen from Cars for my dad. Since I recieved it so close to the holidays I decided to give the sketch to my dad as a suprise Christmas present! Now I need to work on sending some more requests out. It seems I never have much time to send them out anymore. I'll try my best though and hope 2010 will continue to bring more awesome successes!

I haven't really had the time to send out any autograph requests lately so hence really haven't been receiving any. It's been about a month since I posted anything new on my blog and last night my dad was telling me that Roy E. Disney passed away. I wrote to him way back in 2001 when I first began sending out a bunch of autograph requests. I received this signed color photo of him and thought it would be nice to post this week in memory of him. The New York Times published a great overview today about his life and many accomplishments with Walt Disney Co.

This past summer I wrote a request to Katy Perry. My last success for the month of October was this lovely signed color photo from Katy. She is another one of my favorite new artists. With her witty and addicting songs she definitely stands out from the crowd!

Jude Law is currently starring on Broadway in the production Hamlet. I loved him in the movie The Holiday. Last week I sent him this photo I got printed up and already got it back signed today! A FAST success and a fabulous addition to my collection.

Got another autograph in the mail today! Lately it seems my theme for autographs is female singer/songwriters and this one is no exception. I got a signed printout on glossy paper of a new artist Erin McCarley. I discovered her music this year when I downloaded her song "Pony (It's Okay)" back when it was the free song of the week on iTunes. Also really love the track "Love, Save the Empty".

Earlier this month I sent a request to Colbie Caillat. I was suprised last week to recieve a response so soon. I got this signed photo as well as a sheet of Colbie Caillat stickers! Colbie is one of my new favorite singers over recent years. Head over to her Myspace to check out the new songs from Breakthrough as well as her hit single "Bubbly".

Yesterday I received back the 8x10 photo I sent to Brooke White from Season 7! I absolutely LOVE her cover version of Coldplay's hit song "Yellow"(from her pre-American Idol days) and her newly released single "Radio, Radio". Haven't heard them? You can check out both of these songs and more on her Myspace.

Today brought my first autograph success of the summer! I received a signed promotional 8x10 photo of the Season 7 American Idol finalist and winner David Cook. He is truly talented! It's hard to believe he attended the AI audition without the intention of trying out himself but instead to support his brother who was auditioning! I'm happy to add David to my collection. His career is off to a great start and he is one of my personal favorites from AI over the years!

I been awhile since I got an autograph TTM, so I was surprised to see one of those good old manila envelopes in the mail this weekend. In it was this signed and inscribed photo from Kara Dioguardi who is the new judge on this season of American Idol! Love her! She is also a songwriter and has written hit songs for pop artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff, Pink, Ashlee Simpson, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguliera and Celine Dion. She sings herself as well! Check out this YouTube clip of her singing "Lost" with co-writers Mitch Allan and Dave Hodges: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBKszP4ZGJw&feature=related

My April ended on a high note. It was 98 Degrees and Rising...well, sort of. I met Drew Lachey, my favorite member of 98 Degrees! He signed and inscribed a photo for me as well as my Revelation album cover. Out of the few celebrities I have met in-person without a doubt he tops my list- he seems like such a down to earth and genuinely nice person! :)
Haven't got around to updating my blog in awhile but I do have some new autographs, one of them being another addition to my collection of the Pirates of the Caribbean cast! In November I sent off a request to Mackenzie Crook via the Broadway play The Seagull. He returned the photo from POTC that I sent shortly after in December- signed and inscribed to me. Another treasure for my collection!
