Best of Daily Sketch - March


Whelp! Seems March has come to an end already. Once again, time seems to have flew right by me. But, since it's the end of the month, it's time to share some sketches! I haven't been super good about drawing everyday. Lots of things going on at both work and home. All good things though! And I hope to share some work related stuff soon! I'm excited about the current project I am working on & I can't wait to share!! But until then, here are some sketches from March! Enjoy!

Best of Daily Sketch - February


I have quite a few sketches this month! I've gotten some mojo back. :) Also, I've gotten a lot of inspiration from @Sketch_Dailies on twitter (twitter.com/Sketch_Dailies). If you haven't started following them, you should. Monday - Friday they post a different topic for everyone following to draw. Its a lot of fun. And you can post your stuff and they share some of their favorites. So besides getting the daily topic, you get to see what a lot of other talented people drew as well. Most of my drawings for this month are the result of Sketch_Dailies. Enjoy!

And on a side note, I'm really starting to get the hang of drawing on my iPad. Its been fun!

Happily Animating



Time sure does fly by! I meant to give an update after a week at my new job, but instead its now been a month! I didn't even realize! It really feels like I just started. :)

Things here have been going great! I love it! I've able to do a couple animations from scratch. I'm not just doing mocap or polishing something that someone else started, like at some of my other jobs. I love this opportunity to get back into key-frame animation. Plus, I get to use Maya again, no more 3dsMax or MotionBuilder! I've been a bit rusty, but its so refreshing! Can't wait to share my work when I can. :)

And as an added bonus, the people here have also been great to work with. Super friendly! And I don't feel like a contractor. I'm treated just like everyone else on the team and I'm never excluded from anything. And its great to be with a group of animators again. At Turn 10 I was really the only one and so I never got to talk animation and geek out about animated things. They even have a group here that sketches together during lunch. Its awesome! I wish I didn't have to leave in July, but I will enjoy it til then. ^_^ And you never know what could happen between now and then.

So that is where I've been for the past month... happily animating!

A New Year!

Guess I'm a little late to the game, but Happy New Year!! Christmas vacation was great. Had a lot of time to relax with my family. Then I spend a few days in Chicago before coming back to Seattle. Got a few things for Christmas that I'm super excited about! First, I got a new iPad, so I will be able to practice some digital art. I've already been playing around with that:



I'm also excited for my new/first sewing machine! I sometimes enjoy doing more crafty-type things, away from the computer or sketchbook. And I've had so many ideas floating around in my head for things to sew. And now I finally have that chance!

Also, while I was in Chicago, I was able to go to the Art Institute of Chicago and see some pretty inspiring artwork. Georgia O'Keeffe and Monet were two of my favorites. It's pretty awesome seeing paintings that I had only seen in textbooks. Seeing them up close is amazing!



2013 was great and I did so many things! And so far, 2014 has been off to a great start! And tomorrow I start a new job! Wish me luck!

On To New Adventures!




Welp, my contract here at Turn 10 has come to an end this week. Its been a great experience! I was not only about to work on an awesome game, but a launch title for a new generation of Xbox. An opportunity like that doesn't come along very often for sure! Met some awesome people. And who knows, maybe I'll be back again in the future.

So you're probably thinking what I'm going to do next. Well, I've lined up another contract job at Glu Mobile. I will be starting that in the new year. Super excited to be changing gears and working on something new.

Closing one door and opening another! Looking forward to 2014!

Best of Daily Sketch - November


Not a whole lot from last month. It was quite a busy month with the launch of the game and being sick and then Thanksgiving/My birthday. But here are a few that made it to my favorites list!
