Don't You Forget About Me

After my first baby was born, it often felt like I'd never be able to draw or work again. Getting back into it was... hard. I'm hoping this time it will be easier, but just in case- don't you forget about me.

Saw a clip of Peggy Lee on the Judy Garland Show and thought they struck such a contrast- both so beautiful in their different ways.

Jo's Opinion 03: How To MAKE IT In Animation

Finally done with my "How To Make It In Animation" video!  I collected a bunch of frequently asked questions from over the years and present them here in as concise and entertaining a manner as I can.  I hope it helps you crazy kids out there, and if not, I hope it at least points out a path to those better able to advise.  Cheers!

Jo's Crapbook Episode 05: Re Re Re ReDraw!

Compiled all my redraw livestreams into a crapbook video- it took too long, everything is a mess, but my new mantra is "they can learn from my mistakes!" so enjoy all the wrongness I supply for your edification!

Embracing the Housewife Look

Had to set my hair Friday night for a performance, so I spent most of Saturday going about my business in curlers.  I never looked more like a housewife, and I sort of loved it.

Final Redraws

Here are the final redraws in larger format- like La Parisienne so much I put her on merch!

Figure Drawing

My local figure drawing group started back up again and I managed to muscle my way into the very limited group a couple weeks ago.  I'm desperate to go some more- I've needed exercise these muscles for a long time.

Cherry Bang from GLOW

Participated in the GirlsDrawinGirls celebration of the next season of GLOW with this drawing of Cherry Bang.  I loved that "come at me" scene in the first season where she schools Melrose.  Also, I really want a playsuit like that.

Boarding on Hanazuki

Just realized Hanazuki is online now!  I loved boarding on this adorably weird show. Check out my first assignment: Dazzlecize!

Should probably mention now that we're expecting Intern #2 this fall.  I've been too pooped these past few months to come up with a more clever announcement.
