never a year like '09

Try JibJab Sendables® eCards today!

JibJab brings it every year, but this one just blew me away.
I've never been one to prefer traditional over digital, but I love the way this one looks. It's a good source of inspiration (esp. with every scene laid out in the behind-the-scenes blog), and I really want to try doing something with cutouts if there is any time to be had next semester.

Forgot to post this before, lines all colored.

And a quick drawing welcoming my brother back to the states.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday!

green eyes

Had to make a six-page booklet for a project in inDesign, so I copied my TA's idea and decided to illustrate a song. I used Coldplay's Green Eyes because it had some pretty cute visuals I could work with. Don't even begin to think about judging me (haters can take a big ol' step to the left), but Chris Martin really does write some of the most romantic songs out there. So are 2 of the 6:

That green eyes, yeah the spotlight, shines upon you
And how could anybody deny you

I came here with a load, and it feels so much lighter now I've met you

But yeah, got some really sad news the other night, have been trying hard to keep busy and get through the end of the semester, but that hasn't been going too well. Had my heart set on having the animation for this short done before winter break, but right now it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Going to do my best and try to finish strong, love and miss you Mimi.

Currently not even halfway through an overnight session at AIB.

Another scene all set:

The guy is supposed to be reminiscent of my brother.
He's been hanging around airports a lot lately.

But he comes home for Christmas in 9 days!

Been drawing a lot of space things recently..I blame the astronomy field trip to Nantucket I went on last weekend.

Lower drawing done in Illustrator. For the first time EVER I finally feel like I know what I'm doing with that program. THANK YOU TOM BARRETT.

happy halloween!

Digital Trio has made me realize I can't paint for crap in Photoshop.

I'll keep experimenting, but for now I'll stick w/ my no lines/solid colors schtick.

another one bites the dust

Another scene all set!

13 seconds, awwwwright.

I might embellish the background at a later date, but as of right now I'm pretty satisfied with what I got.

baggage claim

Finished the more difficult half of a scene.

Just for comparison, trying a different color scheme for the background. It wasn't working with some of the other characters' palettes.

Also changed this kid's skin tone, hopefully now he'll look less jaundiced on other monitors D:

Still have a lot to do before presentations tomorrow, I want this one dooooooone.

Complete with a cameo appearance from my trusty suitcase c:

what the doodle?

WTD is a biweekly event that occurs at the Fablevision, the studio where I interned for the past couple months. They'll generate a random word from some online generator, and then everyone there has free game to interpret the word in any medium they'd like. I missed the first one, but here are the 3 I've done during my stay:

July 31st: Vehicle

August 14th: Stubble

August 28th: Extinguishable

This past week's was the last one I'd do while officially being at the studio (my last day is this Monday), but I hope to keep participating when I can.

Here are a couple screenshots from a short animation that I started working on at the beginning of the summer. I haven't had very much time at all to work on personal projects due to my summer job and my internship, but I figure with Wednesdays and Fridays off this semester I should be somewhat productive.

But yeah, the animation for this one is not going to be very elaborate, so once I get back into the swing of things I don't anticipate it taking very long. I want this one to be more about character design than anything :)

night of the conchords

So apparently I've had this blog since last November.

That means I'm not as behind on the times as I had originally thought, yet I'm still pretty lame for never posting anything at all for almost a year. I'm even more full of fail when it comes to my actual website, but that's a whole 'nother story.

My first semester as a senior (WHAT THE EFF) starts in a couple of weeks, so I figured a blog would be a good way to keep myself motivated.
