WoW comics

It's been a while since I've posted anything, so I thought I'd show off a couple side projects I did recently. I made these World of Warcraft comics just for fun, and although you may not get them if you're not a WoW fan, I wanted to share them anyhow.

Ruby Rocket blog

For those curious about the Ruby Rocket show, check out the blog. The latest post, Ep 3 composit test, was roughly animated by Sam Niemann and I did the inking and shadows. And be sure to check out the scene 421 fix that Sam gave me free reign on doing all by myself. He's so nice. :)

Ruby Rocket- Private Detective

I am now working on a cool new project, and all should get the opportunity to watch it!

It's called Ruby Rocket and it's being made into a web series and I've gotten the chance to animate on it! Below is the official website and the original pilot that started it all. Enjoy! (Now back to work for me!)

Kayla's Adventures, Book 1 preview

With some time between jobs, I have found an opportunity to continue work on my kid's book, Kayla's Dreamtime Adventures, Book 1: The Loss of Hue. Here is a sampler of page 1.

Another Gift of Art.

I did this piece recently for one of my lovely aunts, who recently discovered herself an artist and even more recently was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She created the bird character sitting on top of Kayla's head, and I just loved him, so I decided to draw our two characters together. She'll be getting it this weekend (shh! Dont tell!) : )

After my Flash film "Politics of Progress" was requested by the folks at Bitfilm for the primary selection stages of the festival, I have just recieved notice that I have been officially nominated for the category of "Media!" Wish me luck!

This imp came to me rather randomly while I was drawing the other day. And yesterday, I colored him. He can be seen on my business cards.

C4G Baby!

Just a little promotion for a project I'm working on --


I've been working for a Portland studio the last few weeks on this cool little webseries. One episode done by me is already available (A podcast titled "Silent But Deadly") featuring my favorite but rarely seen character, Phillip.

You can view the show and other cool stuff at the Shawks Homepage.

(Warning -- This show features some fowl language. :D)

I even got a cool T-shirt and some stickers for workin on it! Yes, I still got paid real money. :)

Mytoons Bumper Contest

This is an entry I did for the Mytoons Bumper contest. Unfortunately I wasnt able to manage adding sound due to my lack of decent software at home, so I just turned it in as is. You can view a better version of it at mytoons: HERE.

(I've been having some issues with the AVI's I export so I apologize if this looks glitchy)

Children's Film Festival ~ Seattle

The above festival is currently being presented by the Northwest Film Forum, and my student classical film, "Pretend" is being shown on the 26th, 28th, and Feb 3rd!

I havent been able to attend thus far, but I hope to get to go on the third (since I missed the other two). There are also some other animations being shown that were done by other VFS students, including Choom Lam's Flash film, "Bobble and Sqweek!"

If I am able to attend, I will post a report on how it went.

2/6/07 Update: Unfortunately, I was unable to attend. I was able to make it to Seattle on the 3rd to see Persepolis (which was awesome!!!) but I wasnt able to get my stuff together quickly enough to make it to the festival. (The show was sold out and I wanted to bring my husband and 2 guests with me... oh well).

More Kayla

After getting some sketches from a talented friend of mine by the name of Tammy Dubinsky, I tried a new design for my Kayla character that I think is a little more interesting. But somehow, the character is starting to look like Tammy, even though this design is quite different from her designs! Strange... But, the design is likely to change until I get some writing set in stone.


Here are some of my sketches thus far for another concept I've been developing for a series about a little girl that has adventures in her dreams. The main character is Kayla, the big fuzzy guy is Fip, and the little alien dude is named Kork. I'm intending on starting production of the series by creating an illustrated book and see where I can take it from there.

Anise & Demi

These are two character designs I've been kicking around for a comic/animated series concept I've been tossing around for a year or two. I dont have any script finished yet, since I'm still developing the third character and the setting and all that. But here's a preview of the character designs that I've got in mind thus far.

Animal Sketches

Earlier this month, I stayed with my pops in Portland for about a week and I couldnt help but want to sketch the many animals that resided in his house. He and my stepmom have 3 dogs and 3 cats, and these are some of the drawings I did of them during my stay (oh, and 1 or two of one of my cats that got in the mix). Oh, and obviously the cats were more in to posing for me than the hounds, heh...

Animation test for a Channel Frederator Raw posting

I did this animation for a thread posting on Channel Frederator Raw. The character and storyboard was provided by the poster and I did the animation.
