It's been a while! I've been so busy with film (it's no longer No Mo Fro! We reworked the whole thing over, now it's POOF) and counselling work. Just some artwork I've done in the past week.

Wee Sketches

Been busy with portfolio and my job lately, so I'm just uploading some day to day sketches that I've been doing on the side. Secretly loving music class ... it's the greatest place ever to sketch, not sure why. Hope all is going well with everyone who shall read this, and Happy Chinese New Year!


I tried a few times to start a dance animation piece of Haifa, but it's much more difficult than I expected!

A character quickie of a French lady. Here are the rough sketches as a peek :)

I am putting the final touches on a character design piece I've been working on this week. I'm super excited to finish it and move onto something new!

Her name is Haifa, she is a curvy Arabian dancer girl. I will be posting the designs of Haifa when my portfolio is more ready, hopefully along with a short animated clip of her dancing. In the meantime, these are the rough sketches I did in the exploration stage:

I coloured these old sketches today ... my friends Perin and Caitie.
Had a tiny chameleon moment.

Painted Props

FIRST OFF, today (Thursday) was a super fun day, FINALLY saw the Muppets movie with my talented friends Eyassu, Luke and Val and ate tons of fries and soft serve. Thus my awesome mood :) 

Check out their blogs!
Since my last bunchof prop designs I posted a few months ago, I've wanted to draw more but there was just no time! Over the past few days I did some not-so-film-related ones, and I started painting a few today.

Really lovin' prop design right now! :3

Comments and critiques greatly appreciated!


A few pages of my sketches from London, England.

There wasn't nearly as much time to draw as I'd imagined!
There is soooo much to see and so much walking! :) It was great exercise and a great time.

Hope you enjoy what I did manage :)

Malcolm's Mom

These were some earlier mom designs for our film that were inspired by my hero Deanna Marsigliese. I absolutely adore her. I cleaned them up and tried to use some pattern / texture. The patterns were originally inspired by Klimt ... unfortunately after some hue changes, they are no longer Klimt-esque. Hope I can try his style again sometime soon.

Hope you like!
