Hey Friends and Followers!

I know I've been absent for a while, but I plan to pick things back up in a bit. I'm pretty busy this summer as I'm interning at Pixar Animation Studios and things around here tend to get pretty loaded on. But load or no load there's not really an excuse to let my blog keel over so I'll get some stuff up as soon as possible. Things at the studio are super great--the people, the work, the food and all that are just seriously blowing my mind and it's only been one week. The people up here are really hard workers and are preparing to stun the hell out of you so prepare yourselves, seriously. Anyway, stick around guys and thanks for being patient, like I promised, I'll get you somethin soon!

A Side Note to take place of a real post on a post deficient blog: The very adorable clip below is taken from my FAVORITE FILM, Faces by John Cassavetes. I feel like not too mnay people know of this film or they forget about it but it's highly recommended if you're really into character driven stories and just plain awesomeness. Netflix it or don't be cheap and support great film by buying it. Just invite me over to watch when you do.

Fourth Year Film

Here's a panning background I finished last night for a 1 minute short I'm working on. I'm just about done with all of the backgrounds and I'll be animating tomorrow. Good luck to all my pals currently working hard on finishing up their films, you're almost there!

A Page Out of the Ol' Portfolio

Job fair was earlier this week. I spent tons of time preparing for it and I hope the work paid off( fingers crossed!). Here's another peak at my portfolio--it's just thumbnails but I really like the character explorations in the corner. I'll soon upload the entire portfolio and it's board sequences, so check back for it! Thanks for looking and all of the encouragement you guys have been layin' on me, it kept and continues to keep me motivated.

Still Workin' on the ol' Portfolio

and I've kinda gone into hyper drive about it, so I have tones of semi-finished things that aren't post worthy yet. I'm trying to pump out tons of unfinished work so I can narrow things down to the what I want to complete and finally stick in my portfolio..which is due in four weeks. At any rate, to keep my blog from dying heres an extremely quick sketch of "What I Wore Today", inspired by Tiffany Ford and Sophie D. Better stuff next time, I hope! thanks for lookng!

Here's a quick color key for a final painting to be completed a little later, although this has worn on me enough as to where this very well might be the final painting. We'll see. If you feel so inclined to add a theme to this image I highly recommend this

Pot Head

Here's another girl with food on her head. I'll do one more to round everything out.  I've been listening to tons of old Bollywood music like Ganga Ki Saugandh to help keep me authentically inspired. Also, I just really like it. 

Basket Girl

Gonna Try to have the India Series finished by the end of the upcoming weekend. Wish me luck!

Not Really Happy With This

But I thought I'd post it anyway. It's supposed to be something akin to a color key. I guess I do like the colors but the composition leaves much to be desired. I wanted it to look something like a heart buuut. I dunno.ha, I'm just not buying it but I figure it should see the light of day considering how much time I spent on it. ...better stuff next post.

I'd like to think that in another life I might have been a baseball player. Just sometime though.

I Never Lived In A Home Like This One...

..but If I had I'm sure it would've been haunted. I know I said I'd be absent for a while and then I go and post stuff twice in one day but I really am going of the map soon here. I promise.  Anyway, I'm not really used to drawing houses so this is a bit on the stiff side so I'll definitely have to practice with this sort of stuff. Tomorrow will be a "house" day I guess, then back to circus freaks--although I wont be posting them for a while. Really, I mean it. Thanks for looking!

Happy Valentines Day!

Starting a Series Of Circus Freaks!

And I've started with the Bearded Lady. I have tons of exploratory sketches for her and all other types of carnies like the Strong man and The Fiji mermaid, so I chose one and dropped some color on it. It's nothing too slick but it's nice to see how things might progress after adding color. I wont be updating as often for a while--I'm starting to buckle down so I can get my portfolio in order. Expect tons of circus freaks and general updating in the future though!
 Thanks and see ya soon.

Indian Princess

So I decided to go with the yellow/gold color pallet for this one. The color choice may not "pop" as well as a few of the other options but I felt it was a little more original. I also chose to go with birds instead of the monkey so the silhouette would read a bit more clearly. The painting isn't taken to a stage of completion yet, I'll get to that soon enough--I've been pretty busy lately. I think I'll add a few more finished pieces, some sketches and a few environment/props to the "India" series before I move on to a different theme. More post soon!

Decisions, Decisions...

Back to the "India" series. I've got the sketch for the "Princess" all ready to go but I'm a little torn when it comes to color. I'm a little drawn to the yellow to be honest. What do you think? Comment below!

The Home Office

Taking a break from the "Indian" series to get a little practice with environments. If I'm lucky one day day I can have a work space like this one. In other news, I'm currently in the process of applying to a job. Wish me luck!
