My submission for Every/Body Zine!  Feeling self conscious about my body, especially while wearing dresses, is something I struggle with all the freaking time.  But sometimes you gotta stop thinking about how chubs your arms are, or how that dress hugs your belly, or your butt and just go outside!

Once it’s no longer three degrees outside, I’m gonna try and wear  dresses/skirts more often.

Ann Macarayan Pins Up Ramona Flowers And Sends Pokémon To Gravity Falls

One of the things I particularly enjoy about looking at art school students’ work is that, while the students have their own unique visual flourishes, they’re also in a period of intense experimentation. Looking over Minneapolis College of Art and Design student Ann Macarayan’s work, I can see details that could very well come to typify her style: little marks that add emotion to the faces, red and blue noses that make her characters a tad more cartoony, careful attention to the fit and wear of her clothing. But she’s constantly testing out new styles and media as she learns and grows as an artist. READ MORE

So I got into this AMAZING project called Art-imation! Basically this swell guy Erin Humiston created a simple animation with a simple character, and he asked people to draw their own character over it! It’s going to look pretty fantastic.

Here’s the main blog where everyone’s frames are put, and here’s a video that explains it a lot better than I just did. I was barely able to squeeze in to be able to contribute, so I’m really grateful for the opportunity!

Second part of my illustrations for digital illustration.  Since I made that quartz queen, I wanted to keep on that theme of crystals and gems.  Along side a character portrait, we had also had to develop an environment or scene, which is something I NEVER draw (I hate drawing backgrounds you guys).  So this was a fun experiment, and I’m actually really happy with how it came out!

GUESS WHO finished their frame? Me, you are correct. (His wings had to be made smaller, I mean he’s gotta fit in somehow right?)

This is a part of a larger scale project called Art-imation by Erin Humiston, where each frame of an animation is assigned to a different artist to redraw in their style and character.
Check it out! I can’t wait to see all the other frames, and the whole animation put together.
