Eh. 50-50 on this one. I need to experiment more with a line style that i like. but I like the background and the bubbles.Also, after hearing ILM talk about their mermaids for Pirates of the Caribbean, I got really excited to draw a scary amphibious-type mermaid. So I drew this. Failure.

Day 6: Favorite book character

It's totally not a movie yet so this counts. Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games. This is by far one of my favorite book series.

Adventure Time style self portrait

I love this show. I first saw the pilot back when I was at the workshop for my college and loved it.

Doing some sketch prompts for a dA group (not that I'm a hardcore dA member, but I like the excuse to draw).

This one is "robot in a dress".

Day 2: Favorite Animal

I don't really have a favorite animal. If I weren't going to be an animator, I probably would've studied zoology, so really I have about 50 favorite animals. But for now my favorite animal is the owl. The fancy kind. With the hat. And the Earl Gray tea.

Day 1: Draw Yourself

Funny how I draw myself all the time, but then when I'm prompted to do it, it seems impossible.

Got back from a multitude of traveling adventures. Last July I spent a few days in New York (my first trip there!) all by myself in order to attend the Pixar masterclass with Mattew Luhn and Andrew Gordon. It was a great experience; I learned a lot, especially when story creation was discussed. It's amazing how much thought goes into every little detail in all of the movies that Pixar does.

More recently I got back from Vancouver, B.C. I was attending Siggraph for the second time. Another great experience, and definitely different from last year's Siggraph. I would highly recommend going to this, even though it's pretty pricey for non-students. I always learn a ton, meet new peeps, and of course, bring home a walking teapot. It didn't hurt that Vancouver is a gorgeous city, much prettier than L.A. was. Some of the highlights were getting to see Pixar's La Luna before its public release, a storytelling with color class featuring Kung Fu Panda 2, and many good presentations from ILM.

So in the meantime while I wait to get back to school, I definitely have a lot to work on and think about. Internship stuff, getting a good website up and running, portfolio, etc. I'll try and keep this blog updated; I know i haven't been doing a very good job (if it helps I haven't really been doing much art, due to some recently discussed business).
