About Me

I study animation and tell stories through my art, whether by writing, illustration, painting, or animating. I live in the country with horses and 2 German Shepherds named Raven and Sula. When I'm not drawing and animating at work, I do farm stuff at home!

Animation: Work in Progress

Here's my most recent version of an animation I've been working on in class for about 10 hours so far.  These are basically the rough keys and extremes.  It is a short scene from my book, with some script-editting to allow for the time constraint of being under 30 seconds. 

About the Scene:  I'm not going to give it all away because frankly I don't want to re-write my book here, so you'll just have to read if you want to know more!  (I'm so clever like that!)  BUT, basically, it is my main character Jay Walker talking to his therapist Mary Onnet in New Heights Asylum for the criminally insane.  Why is he there?  Not going to tell you!  But he's only as insane as he thinks he is....now the woman is a representation of hypocritical psychiatrists...you know, they preach tolerance and understanding, yet don't exactly believe in what they say.  Well, Mary here is WORSE because she doesn't care about her patient's mental well-being...she likes to toy with them...to make them her little puppets...and if they resist, she doesn't mind harsh punishments and wouldn't give a second thought to ordering a lobotomy.  Anyway, I shan't bore you with this any longer.

I've wanted to do this scene for awhile, and may change the music later on.  You've Lost Karma is who I''ve asked for a little soundtrack from, but the music you hear is simply me playing two notes on the piano...just for the time being.  The voice of Jay is Gabriel Vazguez, and Mary Onnet's voice is me!
