Contessa makes a friend

Something for life drawing class!
I meant to colour it but... fell asleep and never worked on it again.

Mice in a Submarine

One of my 4th year pitches involves two mice in a submarine who explore pipes and waterways before getting sucked into a public outdoor swimming pool where they are terrorized by fat sunbathers and obnoxious children... ending tbd.

mi casa

This is what my house looks like! Except not surrounded by lots of other houses. And I don't have a car.

Y3 Life Drawing: Some heroes and villains

Wah so many things to upload... There used to be a giant spider in the back, but I rushed the composition so it was no good and cropped the whole thing.

FX13

It's wk. 8 of school which makes this material... 10 weeks old (whoops!)

Rounded up the summer with four days of FanExpo again and had a pretty good time playing with magnets, tictacs, and cash. We jumped into this art contest because they offered free pencils... but then we didn't win and they got to keep the art...


 I did a commission for a different cat-lover also called Nancy:

And my unfaltering love for Harry Potter:

WINGFOLK: birdshit!




I always wanted to print a book!

But it needed a theme... so I went with BIRDS. Spent a good part of Jul/Aug drawing various beaky things and used FanExpo again as a deadline for yet another mini venture.

There are bits of everything... doodles from the ROM, some rendering, some graphic design:

Experiments: Inkodye and Blockprinting

I went to Aboveground and found this super cool light-sensitive stuff called INKODYE by Lumi. The negative wasn't dark enough so I had to go over parts of it with a sharpie but it still turned out okay. Really want to do some vintage photos later:


Some blockprinting on paper and fabric for my mini bird book:

Indonesia


I promptly spent all my freelance earnings on a trip to Indonesia (+ 2 day Tokyo side trip!). Wish I drew more but it was either too hot to function or I was running around like an Amazing Race contestant.

TAAFI: Caught in the Act

Color key:


We (classmates Chris Ricardo Pierre & Steeeve) spent a good part of May working on this tiny tiny mini-film for TAAFI with the prompt "Caught in the Act". The hardest bit (there were a lot of hard bits...) was keeping it under 19 seconds and still have it make sense.


I worked on uhhh a bit of everything... mainly art direction, layout, compositing (bleh!), animation for the mice with instruments, and lots and lots of inbetweening and cleanup.


Older layout: sorely tempted to make it black and white because black and white is gorgeous, but decided it was too Papermany and needed to learn more color theory anyway.
