I've been sketching "Jo"s lately- I want to reboot my blog. I didn't realize how musty these old drawings were until I updated my proper website.

History of The Devil...Second Week!

So History of the Devil is in full run, and the audiences seem to enjoy it. If you're in Atlanta over the next two weeks, come by and check out the play! Its entertaining, and sure to have something to offend the whole family*!
(*NOTE: Do not bring children. Or pets. Bring alcohol instead.)

Daily Crapbook: Pulling Ivy

The back yard is covered in ivy, and I'm engaged in the laborious process of pulling all of it up so I can plant a proper garden come springtime. The roots are surprisingly thick and gnarly, and sometimes I wonder if I'm yanking a tree root by mistake.

I'm having trouble drawing and animating again. Dunno why. So I'm going for quantity over quality. That always seems to help.

I think I'm done updating my website for the moment- I finally switched out a ton of sketches on my Art page and updated my resume. Now its time to focus on paying some bills and taxes! Joy. Also, here are some teddy bears.

New for 2010...a Demo Reel!

My old demo reel was from ye olden days of 2007, and was smelling very bad. Now my demo reel is shiny and new! Yes, its pink, and yes I'm still using "Mini Skirt" (I don't care if it gets me banned in Germany- I love that freakin' song) but most of the content is new. There are even some clips from spots I haven't posted yet, so feast your eyes. FEAST!

Avatar: Am I Blue?

A few days weeks ago, my friend Pixie sent a mass text: "I just saw the $300 million dollar version of Ferngully." A few hours ago, my husband said "I've never seen anything so beautiful that bored me this much." A few minutes ago, I watched this spot-on review on Bum Reviews by Doug Walker (the Nostalgia Critic). And now, I confess that halfway through this movie about a blacklight poster-colored planet inhabited by giant blue feline Abercrombie & Fitch models, I mentally checked out. The people at ILM and Weta and all the other production houses should all be very proud of themselves- this is indeed a visual achievement that heralds a new age in filmmaking. I just wish I could had enjoyed watching it. I was actually very pleased with the character designs (I've never been a furry, but I've always liked the idea of cat people. From Captain Amelia in "Treasure Planet" to the nuns in that weird hospital episode of Doctor Who) and although the neon world was over the top, it was very pretty. But the story, the characters- oy vey. Whether or not you subscribe to the philosophy of "humans are evil, especially those in the military and corporations", you must admit its a very tired film cliche, and at three and half hours (or was it days?) I could barely keep my eyes pointed at the screen. I literally spent the second half of the movie trying to remember the names of my schoolmates from the second grade. I don't know why my mind went there- it just seemed like a more interesting way to occupy my mind.

I keep searching eBay for vintage chemises. The fluffy babydolls from the early sixties are hands down the cutest sleepwear of all time. And don't get me started on fluffy high-heeled house slippers. Probably uncomfortable as hell, but so cute. Why don't they make 'em anymore?

I chickened out on offering to do the poster for the play I'm in, but I'm still trying draw the characters.

Sketch Flashback

I'm still trying to unpack boxes and get everything organized. Today- it was organizing old sketchbooks. Its so much fun to look at your old stuff- you should go do it right now. You'll be shocked. I keep gasping at how talented I used to be- whuh happenned?? Anyhow, this is one drawing from my 2005 sketchbook that had me giggle a little. I don't know why I never scanned it in before. Maybe I used to be afraid of boobies.
