Illustration Friday: The Knave of Hearts learns a lesson






















































































I've been reading nursery rhymes to my son and I remembered liking this rhyme when I was young. I felt horrible about the Knave being "beaten," so I decided to have the Queen share her tarts at the end. Lesson learned! Enjoy!

LA Natural History Museum

Visited the Natural History Museum on Saturday. I haven't been there since I went with Glenn Vilppu's class. The mammal hall exhibit and whale exhibit are beautiful. This is a cheetah skeleton posed in a run. Hope to return very soon!

A few years ago, my parents went to Thailand. One of their favorite experiences was watching

Bacon Wrapped Date


Congrats to Jin & Dave on their first Valentine's Day as a married couple! Stay tuned foodies, they've made a beautiful film together, written & produced by Dave Ngo and directed by Jin Yoo Kim. I had the privilege of designing and animating their title seqence. Here's a still image from the short film "Bacon Wrapped Date."

Warrior Queen Animated Titles







My friend & director Hezekiah Lewis posted his beautifully crafted thesis "Warrior Queen," online. I designed and animated the title credits, my husband Bill did the amazing compositing. The designs are inspired by Ghanaian wood carvings. Please visit the link for the full film:
When watching the animated title sequence, it's probably best to view it small. When it's enlarged on the screen, the image gets all pixely--and that's not how we intend for you to watch it. Enjoy!
