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!
