I haven’t done one of these in a loooong time. My reference was my reflection against a window with a screen behind it at night– the main light source was my monitor, and as I worked the colors shifted, changing the color of light on my face… This went into a loop until things refined themselves out. I really enjoy working with ambiguous live reference! I’d like to try a low-light life drawing workshop where the artists can barely see the models or their paper. Hmmmm!
Soooo much amazing artwork! Such amazing friends! So many caricatures were drawn! The gallery opening last night was a blast and the art’s been lovely all week. Will definitely need to come next year (and the year after, and the year after that). This year I made 15 ink drawings on scrolls, which will be uploaded within the coming weeks 😀
This is what I look like as a senior.
Balancing a sketchbook on my head, keeping my arms shielded from the unpredictable A/C and being (happily!) wired on plenty of tea. Boot season hasn’t kicked in yet, but it will soon enough (as will my stripes)! I’m super-excited for all the classes I’m in– moreso for the teachers we’ve got (and will have next semester, too!) I’m finishing up some work outside of school and have been settling into the slow-but-steady growing load of homework. This is going to be a fantastic year. Crazy-busy, yes of course, but super-awesome and worth all the forthcoming sleepless nights! Eeee!
Created for Alter Ego, the fifth and final episode in Amy Tofte’s series, Fear of Short Men. The players interacted with this intro by jumping out from behind and gesturing at their on-screen selves. Performed May 6th and 7th, 2011 at the CalArts Coffeehouse Theatre!
A spirit key is hatched– a rare phenomenon, helping heal and uplift the key people… With the exception of one boy who misuses its power.
This is my BFA-3 film as a Character Animator at CalArts.

Resembling a Moleskine, this is a little black Picadilly sketchbook, 3.5″x5.5″ and semi-battered around the edges. This sketchbook has been missing for up to two weeks. All my contact info is on the interior front cover. No distinguishing features are on said sketchbook’s exterior, though the inside has a lot of drawings and notes and blank pages that I still need to fill up. SO…. If you happen to stumble upon it around Valencia/Santa Clarita/LA/CalArts please return it to me. It would be appreciated if you contacted me via email or phone first so I could give you my CalArts address, though the address in it will suffice. I’ll make you some art in return, art of any sort that you request!
Opening with a synesthetic interpretation of Jilson Setters’ The Wild Wagoner, join Jilson, a blind violinist, on a wild mountain adventure.
