Community: G.I. Jeff

I love Community, and I love animation! Being able to work on one of my favorite shows and to do it through 2D animation makes me feel so lucky!

On January 28, our pet rat Juliet underwent surgery to remove her tumor. She passed away that night after we brought her home. Then on February 14, our James passed away as well. It has been insanely rough this past month trying to cope.

Layout exercise: Venice

This is a little perspective/layout exercise. I've been wanting to do a more detailed architectural scene since being inspired by the Princess and the Frog art book. (I will paint it at some point, but this weekend I want to focus on some animation exercises.)

Facing The Law With Dignity

A couple of days ago I got pulled over by a cop. She shined the light in my face and asked if I've ever been arrested. Luckily she let me go after that. I wish her a happy, happy new year!
