So, it's been a little while since I posted last! I've been pretty busy.  I've had a couple of stints at Blue Sky, one at Sony, and I'm currently finishing up a contract at Digital Domain. 

Also, lately I've been trying to draw more often.  I'll try to post more of the drawings as I go :) Here's one I did the other day.

I just recently redesigned my website.  Check it out!

aaaaand, that's about it for now! weeeee

what separates us from the weak...

Yesterday, I was chatting with my sister and I mentioned how tired I was and that I thought I might need to take a nap. Well, right now in school she's writing a speech for one of her assignments and she asked me if I needed a speech-- I said I did. This was her impromptu speech to me--

"Sometimes in our lives, we face adversity. We feel the need to sleep... to rest.. to close our eyes and lay our heads down, for just a second. But do we give in to these superficial urges deemed necessary by our slothish society? NO! It is our responsibility as human beings-- nay, as air breathing, task-accomplishing machines to never sleep, to never blink, to never take our eyes off our computer screens for more than a nanosecond, but to spend our lives working, and struggling to stay awake at all times. It is what separates us from the weak. And may we remain a separated society for all eternity, for I have NOT had a dream."

Anyway, it made me laugh. Also, I didn't take a nap.

Very clever, little sis.

happy easter :)

So, today I was walking into church when I noticed this woman and her daughter walking in front of me.  The daughter was cute and energetic but what really struck me was the way the woman was carrying her purse and holding her hand.  I tried it out when I got home.. it was pretty uncomfortable. 
Anyway, I did a little sketch aaaaand here it is.

It's been so long since I posted anything. And since then, I've graduated AM! Hard to believe how quickly it went. I'm still finishing the short that I worked on in classes 5 and 6 but just for fun, here are a couple shots from classes 3 and 4. (I know that I've posted these before, but these are rendered and prettier!)
