A drawing is an idea. As an animator, I turn ideas into stories.
I am currently a junior at the Kansas City Art Institute. It's been a blessing and privilege to be a student there after earning my AFA at the Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL. I keep this as a journal of my latest projects and explorations in animation.

Then amidst my self-induced suffering, a savior spoke these words, "Loosen Up Man". Studio truly is the greatest place on earth. I figured I had to take the time to draw, because I just wasn't enjoying my 3D-Modeling stuff.
VIOLA!! I let my pencil fly and something wonderful happened. I began drawing rough sketches that had more life to them then my neat and clean illustrations. You'll be seeing a lot more of these speedy "fun" drawings. I think I finally found my niche with drawing.
About time I beat that bad attitude. I'm no fun to be around when I get sulky.

Alright! I have had some considerable progression with animation. While there are a lot of things happening here that I'm proud of there's still room for obvious improvement:
1) LIGHTING!! (apparently it doesn't help if all your light sources are behind the camera.)
2) After Effects Post Comp
3) Camera Moves (probably can't do a smooth one without some kind of stable rigging)
Here is the complete video after all our films were edited together. CHEERS!!
