My Animations, Let Me Show You!

And now for something completely different. Here's my demo reel for animation. It's weird and slightly sad to think that everything I did in school can be summarized in a neat little 1 minute package. Actually, it's maddening, but I digress. 

The song is from the soundtrack of one of my favorite movies ever, "Everything is Illluminated." Go see it, it may shed some light on your life. Sometimes even I can't handle my awful jokes. 

But here it is for your viewing pleasure, or distaste if you chose.

Well... Now what?

School is done. I mean really done. Like I will never have to write another paper again done. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Actually I do. It's awesome! My time at Massart has been amazing, I couldn't ask for better teachers or classmates. Though I'm going to miss the safety of it's halls, I'm totally pumped to be a big kid, excuse, I mean adult. 

Anyway, now that that's out of my system. Here's a lil tid bit of artwork that I created about a year ago. I'm not really great at sewing, but when the need arises, I step up to the challenge. I used to work at a wonderful little art store called Pearl Arts and Crafts, which sadly went out of business this year. HOWEVER, when it was in business it rocked. Well maybe not for the customers, because we hardly had any inventory, but it was great to work there. Especially around Halloween, which is my favorite holiday  B T Dubs. Whoever had the raddest costume won a paid day off. Upon hearing about that most coveted prize, I decided that it would be mine. And so I made... Fozzy. 

This costume was hilarious to walk around town in, people would run up to me and give me hugs, and it was great walking into random stores and walking around, not saying a word. Sigh. 
So enough of my nostalgia. No 2-d artwork today kiddos, but I hope you like checking out my very first costume I made. :) Maybe I'll wear it to graduation and just substitute the mortar board instead of his fedora? Thoughts?

I Missed This

It feels so nice to work on fun character illustrations again! Time flies when I do these things, for example, I didn't realize it was nearly midnight when I finished this thing. Well, by finished I mean the character herself, I may slap on a background behind her when I feel like working on background stuff.
The Queen of Hearts used to give me nightmares when I was little, and I don't find this version to be as threatening. She strikes me as tiny and angry, but not terrifying in general. I think the White Rabbit is next, though I can't make any promises kiddos!

cat butts re visited

So here's the colored version of 'Millions of Cats' and a vision into my future. I've noticed while flipping through old sketch books, that I have this weird drawing obsession with old people. I love drawing them. A lot. Seriously. As I was coloring this picture, I was watching an episode of Hoarders, and the woman had over 75 cats in her house, guess what she collected. Coincidence, yes.
