Here is just a general doodle update. I've been drawing a lot lately with my brush markers. They are really fun and they have great line quality and color. I love drawing with them. It might be my new favorite drawing utensil.

I turned the Guru Drawing into an album Cover! Check it out

Character Design Assignment 01 Bears at a bus-stop

So here is my first assignment from character design. Its some bears at a bus-stop. I drew a lot of head shapes in the beginning so i could get a feel for what looks bear like and what doesn't.

Side note: for the third year in a row i did not get into the stop motion class. I was beat out by a bunch of first year experimental students! Grrrrrr.....

Oh yeah and my birthday is coming up soon! the big 2 1! What should i do to celebrate?

A whole new year, a whole new cube...

So i'm back for my third year at calarts. I know, i know... It still says year 2 up top but i couldn't make a new banner yet because the labs are still getting a make over. So what is new since i last posted? Well the Sasquatch and the Girl is being recognized this weekend at the South Dakota Film Festival as the best student film! It is pretty sweet! We had class signups the other day... boy was that a mess. Basically what happened was they worked really hard to streamline the process this year but forgot to tell anyone that they were streamlining it! AHHH!! I am also a TA this year! That means i will now be taking on 4 jobs this year plus making a film. But hey at least i got first pick of the cubes. Speaking of which lets check in on that.
Great street name!

I like the location

The size is great... but that color....ew

I think we can take care of that...

That is much better! What do you think? Still more updates to come! It's good to be back!

Omg in distressing news, Sarah got hit by a car on her bike today! She is ok, mostly just badly scraped up, and a little shaken up. Please keep her in your thought and prayers! If you want to send her a note you can post it on her blog or her facebook. I am sure she would love to hear from you:

What I wish someone had told me before I came to Calarts

  • Get a coffee maker of some kind
  • For your first year don't worry about making a GREAT film. Just make a film.
  • Sketch
  • Make a portfolio, portfolio
  • Don't pull the "all-nighter" just to pull the "all-nighter"
  • Schedule in Breaks
  • Take an english 101 class
  • To get anything done with administration you need to ask more than three times.
