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.
