I am a first year Animation student with a minor in Theater Arts. I never really grew out of cartoons or games. I have enjoyed drawing, playing, and watching for my whole life. I began getting really interested in the process of creating cartoons, especially storyboarding, during middle school. My favorite cartoon at the time was The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, and seeing all the practical effects and silly expressions used in the show made me want to know more about its production. I did some research on the creator, Thurop, and it seemed that he had a lot of passion to make the show he was working on the best it could be. After being inspired by him, becoming a storyboard artist has been my goal.
I really enjoy drawing character art, both traditionally and digitally. I love learning how to use faces and body language to express what a character is feeling.
I am interested in all kinds of design, especially in applications and games. Making things easy to understand and use while being visually appealing is something I do a lot of research on.
In my career, I hope to be able to contribute to projects the best I can. Whether this end up being cartoons, movies, games, applications, or demonstrations, I really enjoy working with others to make something great.
Ostrich Marathon was a game and animation I completed in my first semester of college. It was an endless runner about an ostrich named Marilyn. The game was made in Stencyl, the art was created using Photoshop, and the animation was made using After Effects. Creating such a large project using my own art and programming was a huge challenge that ultimately resulted in something that I am proud of for my first try.
This is a fan art I drew for the 10th anniversary of Phineas and Ferb's premiere. I wanted to make it as a thank you to a show that I take a lot of inspiration from. The characters, writing, and music in this show provides a great example of the type of cartoon I'd like to work on one day. This drawing was made using Photoshop.
