Human DOING.

This quarantine time has made me see I am way better at being a human DOING, rather than a human BEING. I like to be busy. I don’t like to be still and feel hard things. It’s ugh, and uncomfortable. But this time is teaching me that’s exactly what I need to do. Slow down.Continue reading “Human DOING.”

Blippi’d

My son Hudson is OBSESSED with Blippi. Can all the Mamas & Papas raise your hand if you have a toddler who is requesting to watch Blippi AD NAUSEAM?! (Send wine and headphones.) My only appropriate response to this is to draw him in his glory wearing Blippi’s garb. Even when he asks for hisContinue reading “Blippi’d”

Quarantine art club

Sheesh, friends. This new normal, this quarantine life – it’s not easy, right? I don’t do well with unknowns, with large fears, with missing people. I am thankful for so many things, and also struggling with so many things. I know we all are. For me, music helps. Dancing helps. Working out helps. Hugging myContinue reading “Quarantine art club”

Oscar Posters 2019

This is always a fun exercise for me each year, since I LOVE film, the Oscars and designing stuff! These are more for me than anyone else 🙂 But if you enjoy them too, then cool! **I only design posters for the films I see, so I can design the poster with the full pictureContinue reading “Oscar Posters 2019”

**ANNOUNCEMENT**

This project is a long time coming (out). I love working in the animation industry, and I hope I continue to for many more years. But lately these words from Mary Oliver keep ringing in my ears: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do / With your one wild and precious life?” WhatContinue reading “**ANNOUNCEMENT**”
