moleskine sketches

i've been curious as to what all the fuss was about so i got my first moleskine sketch book a few weeks ago. it's pretty nice with its smooth corners and classy style all bundled up in a tight little package... i feel like i'm drawing in the bmw of sketchbooks. the price tag certainly reflects that, too.

i'm not a classy lady but i tell ya what, i like this sketchbok.

for anyone out there wondering how to get their paws on some new yorker animated fun GO HERE!

there is now a podcast (apparently this is not so new) with new episodes three times a week and supposedly that page i linked you to there updates daily with cartoons but i haven't actually checked to see if that is true. there is also a youtube page but i'm not sure how often it is updated. HERE IS THE LINK if you want to check it out.

i think i have worked on about 100 of these by this point. holy crap!

"No Naked!" on channel frederator!

the good people over at channel frederator are featuring "No Naked!" on their online program, cartoon hangover! i have been holding off on putting "no naked" online to give it a good chance to run in the festivals that don't allow films to be posted online, but it's been a year since i finished it up and it's hit a few of the bigger festivals so i think that's good enough. i'll probably still submit to those festivals that don't have this requirement, there are quite a few. so i guess this is the online premiere of "no naked"! and guess what! there is also an interview with me at the end :D cartoon hangover is generally an 18+ show but my film and the interview are straddling that PG line so it should be safe for most kids to watch.

p.s. that isn't me in the video thumbnail.

p.p.s. get ready for unnecessary bleeping!

building a fuzzy tree

progress pics of a small-ish fuzzy forest i'm making with my roommate, dina noto, for an installation. she is making the creatures in the forest and i am making the forest itself. there will be around seven to ten trees and about the same amount of creatures in the forset. all creatures are various interpretive species of dina's "love cat" character.

most of the trees will be the size of the white one pictured here. the large brown tree is something of a focal point in the forest. look at the love cats :D
