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 ( 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!
