Today, I had a project due with animation/cinematographs done in Photoshop that represented Nightmares or Dreamscapes. Just thought I would share! https://youtu.be/QFiccKza2vw https://youtu.be/eEUEAHGWSJM
Plans for Poppet
I've mentioned my children's book, The Golden Pinecone, in a previous post, as well as my plans to revise the illustrations. I am currently working on a script for my midterm in one of my classes at SMCC, and will finish that - hopefully - by the end of the semester. The goal is to … Continue reading Plans for Poppet
Please know that I am foolish in so many ways, and that I do not expect people to "approve" of things I share my opinion about. So many artists I know get very excited when they start using digital programs to create, and tend to overshare their process (again, my opinion only). I see incredibly … Continue reading Procreate
Welcome, and thank you!
Having never been very consistent with online creative outlets, such as blogs and social media, I sincerely appreciate every "like" and "follow" that You gift me. I recently committed to a digital upgrade by investing in an iPad Pro and Procreate. So far, I'm enjoying exploration in Brushes - there are far too many! I … Continue reading Welcome, and thank you!

Pallo is a character I created, inspired by two little girls - twins - I used to take care of in my nanny days. We were together since … Continue reading Pallo
Pink Gelatin Skeleton

It's has been the only outside creative interaction I've had in years, so it's pretty special. I decided to convert his illustration into animation, as a surprise (just a first … Continue reading Pink Gelatin Skeleton
Estoy Llorando – I am crying
My father passed away on Tuesday. He had suffered a long time, so he is free of pain now. It is only fitting that our lesson in Animation class this week was Cycle Layers, learning how to add tears to our puppets. Here is Pallo, crying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxVoInot4ow Fortunately, I find solace in creating. I used … Continue reading Estoy Llorando – I am crying
Testing out some animation
I realize I haven't posted any stories about Pallo yet, but I've been in college full time to learn how to animate, just for her. So I'm too excited to share this little clip I created in my Character Animator unit! https://www.youtube.com/embed/VNqPerTvWXM
In the beginning... The Land of Lo (which, many years after naming it so, I found out is an actual place in the far East) was not always a beautiful countryside with an infinite lake and mountains. No, it started out as fire. An endless - and beginning-less - blanket of eternally burning fire. It … Continue reading The Tillers
