Le Cirque Des Ballerines

These are some ideas for a new personal project that I plan on starting one day..I would like to incorporate hand drawn/traditional or digital painted bgs and 2d animation with actual pencil and paper. I haven't done any animation on paper since graduation so it's going to be challenging! :)

My animation will involve a circus of ballerinas, trapezes and tight ropes galore! Here are some really rough concept sketches. More prettier concepts coming soon!

I made a 2 minute flash animation for my boyfriend for Christmas. It was a time line of events from when we met until now and he simply adored it...GREAT SUCCESS! Here are a few screen shots.

A save-the-date I did for some friends a few months ago. Their wedding was bug themed and they wanted the drawings to have a sort of Chibi look to it. I've never drawn anything in that style but it was fun.

Princess and Maya

I realized I've drawn our dogs but haven't posted actual photos of what they look like.
Here are a few pictures of them.

I have beanie babies that look just like them! I keep them at work. :)

Weekend sketches

I visited my best friend Kristina last weekend.
We did not do much as usual but we did draw fun, stupid pics and ate popsicles.

Here is a sketch I did of myself eating a Melona creamsicle. I still can't really draw myself in cartoon form but I'll keep trying!
If you haven't had a Melona creamsicle...boy, you are missing out BIG TIME!
My boyfriend was actually the one who got us hooked on them a long time ago and we are so glad! Now Kri has given them to her friends in Sac and they all love them too!
Anyway, they are Korean melon flavored creamsicles that come in honey dew,strawberry, mango and banana!
Although Kri had no real food...her fridge was fully stocked with Melona. What a great weekend.

We stopped by the mall and saw girls who looked just like this!

My highly detailed PAYLESS SHOES comic.
Just for the record we did not buy anything.

Here are two girls in fishnets.

Some pretty colors

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

Here is my drawing for the 3rd annual Purr-casso art and craft gala. All the proceeds will go to help the dogs and cats at the East Bay Humane Society :) I heard about it through Bill Robinson and I am very happy I could be part of it this year!
I'll post the finished version when I'm done painting.

Old stuff

I started this painting but never finished it. It was inspired after going to Teatro ZinZanni. It was fantastic! You should go!

I love mermies

I like my chinadoll...I'm going to star her in my next animation!

pen sketches

These drawings were drawn with my black Faber-Castell pen which I LOVE! I don't know how to ink anything but it was fun playing around. I think I'll buy some more today!

I love artistic guys...

I had an exceptionally long and horrid commute from work today, with this mini van tailgating me half way home! I compained about it to my boyfriend on the phone and when I got home I found this taped to my door. It made me smile and put me in a better mood.
Thanks Juannie! :)
