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!
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.
These last few months flew by and I’ll be sad to say goodbye to sunny days and newly made friends. But onto the next adventure. Excited to be working at Laika in just a few days. Here are some goofy behind the scenes pics from the past few projects.
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! ❤
^^^^ Look there! This is the puppet he gave me.
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!
It was a total accident that we wore matching hats I swear.
