I just moved to NYC! AH! I will be pursuing my masters in Computer Art (comp animation) at the School of Visual Arts. This past week I have been going to museums, walking around parks, and just trying to take in all that is going on around me... a lot of inspiration. There are tons of people sketches I want to scan in, but for now a photograph of the view out my 17th floor window looking west. There were some interesting clouds from Earl today. :) I also made it a calendar desktop b/c I always like having a calendar to look at. tee hee!

A quick character sketch I did base on a snot smear my dog left on the car window that looked like a fox. This one is a lot less gross to look at. :D Let me know what you think!

Here is a still from an animation I threw together for a biology project. It's something a little different from me, but I had fun with it! Ed is a guy with a lot of allergies, so he is treated with allergy drops or Sublingual Immunotherapy. Yay Ed!

Jim Jinkins

This week I had the pleasure of hearing the creator of Doug, Jim Jinkins, speak at OSU. It was a great presentation and I was glad I had the chance to go!

After the presentation, we had the opportunity to meet Jim and exchange a few short words. I shook his hand and introduced myself (as calmly as I could!). While he was signing my very own Doug poster I told him that I too was an animator and was making a film about a duck who skates on butter. After mentioning the skating on butter part, without missing a beat, Jim replied "Of course he does!" in a very genuine and understanding tone. I was/still am so ecstatic about this! It was the first time I mentioned my thesis premise to someone and they didn't look at me like I was crazy! Yay Jim Jinkins!! :)
