Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been wanting to do some sort of fan art for Paperman since I first saw the short and Valentine's Day seemed like the perfect opportunity.

This is the final result. It's a combination of paper and gouache. Paperman fan art made from paper. >>
Here's a detail shot of the two lovebirds.

Happy New Year!

I felt really inspired to make something after attending the "Women in Animation" show opening and seeing all the amazing art there. So I decided to make a paper cut out for the Chinese New Year, which just so happens was the next day.

This was the result. It's entirely paper, with a little gouache for some details.

I've always enjoyed Chinese art, especially their paper cut outs, so I wanted to incorporate that into this piece. 

The sign on the snake head is the Chinese symbol "Fu" which means "blessing, good fortune, good luck" in the new year.

Just a Quick Update

I just wanted to share some exciting news with everyone! These past few weeks I've been in the process of moving across the country. Now I have my own apartment in Burbank, CA! I'm still looking for work out here but I love it out here so much that I'm going to try and have some fun as well. Thank you for your support and your kind thoughts!
