Merry Christmas 2013

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family!  I was naughty yet again this year and neglected to bake cookies or make a holiday card, but here is a doodle for all of you at least.  May love and egg nog keep you warm this Christmas Eve.

Daily Crapbook: Cruise Sketches 01

I'm taking some sketches I did from the cruise last week and expanding on them because that is the homework I've arbitrarily assigned myself.

Daily Crapbook: Female Empowerment Fail

Welcome back, me!  Just got back in town from a lovely family cruise.  I did lots of crappy sketches on the boat that I don't think I'll post without some serious doctoring, but at least I'm getting back into drawing from observation.  Speaking of true to life, here is a slice of my life from this evening that I ended up feeling very amused by.

Daily Crapbook: Elsa Doodle

I saw "Frozen" last night and I have...opinions.  One of the positive opinions is that it is very, very pretty.  So pretty, in fact, that even though I should be packing for an imminent trip right now, I have been doodling instead.

Working out an art for the awesome Darren Tate and trying to practice likeness.  Also, can anyone tell me why Blogger has decided to start making all the white in my uploaded images turn gray?

UPDATE: Fixed it!

Thoughts on CTN Expo 2013

So I finally made it out to CTN Expo after years of not being ready, and I came back feeling very happy and unsettled at the same time.  The inspiration and education was abundant, but business-wise I don't know if anything will come from this trip that will further my career.  I also felt very out of place at times, because of being so much older, my insisting on drawing, and my lack of cool t-shirts and facial hair.  But there were also some amazing things that happened, like getting advice from Jerry Beck in person and discussing Maurice Noble with Tod Polson and lots more!  The anatomy panel with the evolutionary biologist was jaw-dropping, and I found practical knowledge from the classes about contracts and screenplays.  When I got home I started doodling to organize my thoughts, and think I worked it through to a positive conclusion.  I'll be going back next year, and will work desperately in the interim to make sure I deserve to be there.

I am so excited by the drawings I've been doing lately that I've named them by randomly smashing my hand against the keyboard.

I managed to make it one more website revamp without hiring someone- fist pump!  It took a minute to find the workarounds I needed, but it is done! Check out the new and damn your eyes if you find a mistake.

2013 Character Animation Reel is up!

Phew!  It took a minute to get all the permissions and materials, but what can you expect when you don't update your stuff for two years?  Now all I have left to do is a new portfolio, website, and resume.  And get some new mini-flatbooks printed.  And re-learn figure drawing.  And illustration.  And just do everything better in general.

Monkey Rag Scene Thumbnails
