Pigeon Toed

Pigeon-toed me is way less sexy than you will see

Okay, so I mentioned in the last post that I drew Pie-Girl pigeon toed because I was pigeon toed...and for some reason after that I felt compelled to make some silly little gifs of me being pigeon-y:
Photobucket Photobucket

huzzah for crude animations! 
yeah that foot totally slides around in that first one

I promise next post will be something of some substance. Probably zoo drawings.

PS. I tried using Photoshop's animation timeline to make these but it's so DARN FRUSTRATING (booo, hiss!). So if you're lazy like me, this is my new favorite gif-making site...just upload and time :)

Girls and Pie

I was supposed to draw a "sexy girl" for Valentine's, a grand tradition initiated by my friends Kyle and Beth (you can see Beth's way-sexier girl here!). I didn't get to finish yesterday, so I thought I'd post it up today.

She kind of more cute than sexy, though I hope I made it more sexy with pie. What's with the pie trend going on these days? Whatever started it, I'm not complaining (obviously, since I've had Republic of Pie three times in the past three weeks)!

Also, she is pigeon-toed, because I am pigeon-toed :(

Happy Valentine's Day!

I spotted this in downtown Burbank during my lunch break today. 

They were inseparable, even as they crossed the street.

 Romance is in the air!

Catinental Drift

A while ago I was having a rough couple weeks, just feeling kind of sad and mopey. And just in my hour of need, Chaos started sleeping on my bed! It was a pleasant surprise, since he usually slept in Megan's room...but totally welcome, because there's nothing quite so comforting like a little cat bundle sleeping with you.

At first I would get into bed very carefully because I didn't want to disturb him or chase him away.

But then I started to notice...a gradual cat-shifting...

And I'm pretty sure that one day...

 We might have to hash things out when that happens. But he'll probably win. He's really cute.

 and here's a picture of Chaos, looking very pleased with himself.

a couple of paintings!

I did a couple of pieces for the Pencil Mileage Club's student/alumni gallery. The show opens tomorrow night at CSU Fullerton, everyone is welcome! :)

I always thought some of the collective names for animal groups were rather odd and cute, so I decided to take them literally. I'm sure this has been done before, but it was fun for little paintings.

both are watercolor...i need to practice more :(

in frames

sketch and color exploration

See you there! (traffic permitting...D:)

After a year and a half of having great adventures and making great friends on Robot & Monster,  I'm moving onto a different show at Nickelodeon. R&M was my first real art job after college, and I could not have asked for a better production. If we're all lucky we'll get to see it air sometime in the's a show with a lot of love and heart poured into it, and I'm honored to have been a part of it. And it's pretty damn funny, too. But for now...Pandas!

Moving over to KFP means moving buildings, and my office is now in a high rise in DT Burbank. It's very cozy and the view is great--the only thing's really DARK. We keep the blinds closed almost all day, or else it would get ridiculously hot..and as a result I get about 90% less natural light than I used to. 
I'm already pretty pale naturally...
...and I imagine after working here a few months I'll look something like this:

 I can't imagine what would happen if someone ever rolled up the blinds.
it burnsss!
