It’s the end of week 4 and I’m absolutely loving it here. Met some wonderful people at an animation gathering at BENT where we showed off our work and got feedback. Going to a puppet making party next week and just got my first of many free massages. Life is good. Here’s a little something I’ve been working on today. Might take another crack at it tomorrow and see if I can work out the kinks. Have a lovely weekend folks!

Week 1

Hey guys,

So I moved to Portland to work for LAIKA. I’m currently couch surfing till I can move into my apartment in the SE! I’m sorry I’ve been a bit slow on the updates. This week has been absolutely crazy. LAIKA is a small wonderful place and getting to be a part of it blows my mind repeatedly. Went and saw The Accidentals and Martin Sexton last night because I met their Tour manager this summer at Electric Forest and he got me on the guest list. Wootwoot. Anyway, this is more of a blogesque type of post but I promise I’ll have some new things to show next week that are art related.

An Unexpected Day

I decided to quit my job at Staples yesterday because the environment there was not for me. Today I opened my computer in search of something, anything better. When I opened my email I couldn’t comprehend what I was reading. A Laika recruiter I had spoken to awhile back had reached out to me asking me if I was available. An immediate opening had arose and I’m their pick. She was wondering if I could swing it.

HELL YA I CAN SWING IT!

Guess i’m moving to Portland!

Happy new years everyone!

This year is going to be great! I’ve already met up with some other artist on a collaboration for a 2-5 min movie for the coming months. Not quite done with this guy yet but soon.

I also got to meet Robert Maya at his studio who is a phenomenal artist. He is going an 18ft piece for a comic convention this February. He was so gracious as to give me a silicone two sided puppet! ❤

Mars meets Arizona

Hey guys, it’s almost Christmas! Got bogged down for a few days making presents for everyone but i’m back at it. Just making sure the perspective on everything is going well. Getting excited about this project. I think were going to do a short looped shot with a desert feel and then repaint the set to be a winter scene. This weekend i’ll be doing basket weaving and beading as well, always happy to learn new crafts!
