leaving this blog for good

Heyoooo. In case you noticed, I fell out of the habit of using blogger a long, long time ago. On the bright side I started a new blog off of my wordpress website.

I'll be leaving my posts on this blog untouched for now. A lot of my older writings make me cringe, and don't even get me started on the artwork. This blog has too many memories associated with it for me to ever want to keep posting here, but people still seem to read my posts. Well, this is the site to dig at if you want to look over ancient artifacts from a bygone era.

Thanks for following me all these years and thanks Blogger, but Wordpress is just better. ;)

I got the Pixar Story Internship!

Hey! It's been a long time since I've written anything here but I feel like rambling since a few days ago, I found out I'm gonna be spending this summer at Pixar! I'm so hyped, I can't wait to learn from amazing artists & meet new people.

Every year seeing new faces coming into the Character Animation program always reminds me of my freshman year and how excited I was to be starting out at one of the best animation schools. Right now I feel exactly as thrilled as I did back then! Ready for an amazing experience with a Studio that I've admired for as long as I could remember. I'll probably be documenting things elsewhere but thanks for reading my this ancient blog anyways. To wrap up heres some sketches I drew in the Sierra Nevadas recently, over & out.

Fireside evening

Just a little loop of my chimera girl Chantelle and Sherbet. Gifs never look nice when this much color is involved, so I slapped some sound on it instead.

strange marine life

Drew my OC Tanya but got carried away with the AE’s puppet tool hah, it's so easy to use! The hardest part is saving a gif for the web. She has qualities of a leafy seadragon, but (if i animated it properly) can shift in color like a cuttlefish does. Guess I draw her when I just want to draw something girly...and fishy.

 TLDR; Yes I love anthros.

RIP Cosmo 2004-2014

Our border collie Cosmo died recently, he lived a long doggy life. He had blue eyes as a pup and they turned brown as he got older. I really couldn't feel better until I drew a little something for him.

Avcon 2014 wrap-up

Hey guys. I've just been recovering from another great weekend at AVCon Adelaide! Sold the usual masses of stickers and badges, but I'm also thrilled that many of my new A3 prints have gone to good homes!
Quite a few people asked for photos of my Reisen Inaba cosplay, so i've improved my pose-striking abilities. ;) 
Once again, a huge 'thank you' to anyone that stopped by my stall. I can't emphasize how much it means to me that there are people who like my art (& even my original characters) enough to spend money on it! Although I've attended 4 cons this 'summer' but I still can't get enough of the energy and excitement they make!  The 'carny' lifestyle beckons...  I'll leave you with a little Okuu animation I did for 2D practice. Over and out!

Only 1 day left!

...Till Avcon 2014 that is! I've been neglecting blogger so here's some recent stuff. A group shot of all the characters in Super Dangan Ronpa 2 and some observational drawings done at CDW studios. Aaah, I love being back in Adelaide for the 'summer', just had to share my sentiments. :;)

Feeling that Avcon 2014 hype yet?

I've been to a couple of cons over the last few months, but of course....the best is saved for last! I have 20+ new characters for my fellow Adelaidians, alongside other new additions such as... A3 glossy prints!
Pardon my phone camera. Full illustrations can be seen here and here.

I'll be at Stall 35 which is near the Artist Alleys' entrance and surprisingly enough, the exact same spot as last year! Huge thanks to Rosie Coleman for getting me into the alley at the last minute. Can't wait to see familiar faces and meet new people!

New Zealand wrap up

Finally got some time write about my recent trip to New Zealand for the Armageddon Expos. Met some very friendly folk in Hamilton and quickly sold out of my themed playing cards, so I've ordered a couple dozen more!  I loved meeting fellow artists at the con in 'Windy Welly'. Special thanks to all the brave souls that got their caricature drawn. (I finally have enough examples put on my sites' caricature page, yes!)
Thats me cosplaying as Reisen Inaba from Touhou.
 Overall, an amazing trip. :)

food science comic

I completely forgot that I had whipped up this comic as a final assignment in the Matter and Molecules class from last semester. Forgive me science buffs, I tried. :)
