Anonymous said: Does SCAD have good connections in their animation department? Someone told me that the only way to be successful in that field is to go to Cal Arts or SVA.

First of all, whoever told you that is wrong. Yeah, certain colleges have certain reputations, but it all depends on how motivated and hardworking you are! College is more of a resource and learning experience than an automatic ticket to get into the field because of its reputation from the past. I have friends that go to (of course) SCAD, MICA, Sheridan, Columbus College of Art and Design, Ringling, and even large universities that are hella talented and are most indefinitely gonna go places when they graduate! (There are plenty of colleges I haven’t mentioned that are amazing btw)… Heck, there are plenty of talented artists right now in the field as we speak that have graduated from all different kinds of colleges!  So I think that there are a looooot of really great colleges for getting into the animation field. Don’t get me wrong, CalArts and SVA are amazing and the work that the students produce is quite breathtaking, but I don’t think that you’re giving other colleges the credit they all deserve! If the entire animation industry just consisted of CalArts and SVA grads, then there wouldn’t quite be as much diversity and different ways of approaching problems in the field as there is now. As for SCAD, we do have some really great faculty that do have connections in the field. I know that they try their best at helping us enter the industry as fresh new animation babies.

But yeah! The beautiful thing about the animation industry is all of us coming together and applying all of the different things that we learned from all of our different backgrounds to create something amazing  (▰˘◡˘▰)

Here’s a layout that I finished based off of a dream I had once. I did the pencil sketch last year for a thing and forgot about it… until I decided to ink and color it for fun! I made a process gif so you can see the way I color/work for once???

Hey everyone! Sorry for the hiatus, it’s just been crazy ever since I got back from France. I’ve been so busy training for RA job and getting ready for the school year! I’m sure once the school year actually starts I will be updating regularly again. Here are some training doodles that I could muster up haha

Anonymous said: Your art is soooooooo good. Like seriously, if you made a TV show or anything, I would watch the heck out of it

Haha I appreciate it! It’s one of my biggest dreams to help create a television show, so it’s nice to know I’ll have someone willing to watch it! 

Also, just an update: I do apologize for not uploading artwork lately!  I have been in a big transitional phase and in a week I went from France to Pittsburgh to Savannah and it’s been crazy. I’m also in the midst of pretty intensive RA training at the moment. After things start to settle down though, I will definitely be updating and putting stuff out there regularly again! Thanks for understanding y’all!

Here are two more pieces that are going to be in the Open Studio exhibition here in Lacoste! They were both inspired by real places and events. Both done in photoshop CC.

Here’s a little elf drawing I put on twitter earlier this week! In the midst of getting everything prepped for the exhibition, I didn’t have time to color it.
ALSO! I have been getting a plethora of the same sort of questions, so I decided to make a F.A.Q. page for my blog. Check it out!

This is a three part piece I did for the Open Studio exhibition here in France. It’s a triptych titled Under the Same Sky.
