Welcome to Here!

Hey there, folks! It's about time I started up one of these, eh? Here's where you'll be able to see the sort of arting I get myself into, along with various other POINTS OF INTEREST.

It'll mostly be art-related stuff, but don't be surprised if you come across entries that don't fit the artsy criteria.

To start off, here's a few art-things I've scrounged together to give you a taste of what to expect (if you're new here, anyway).

This is a 30-second animation of my happy-go-lucky raccoon hero (what a mouthful!) Suko, who just so happens to have really bad luck with vending machines. The animation was the final project for my Animation 2 class over at Laguna College of Art and Design. I feel like the long hours spent working on it in the studio really paid off, though.

Mr. Pink Spandex right here is a new villain character I recently made up. He's a French-Canadian marten named Spencer with oodles of cash and oversized weaponry.

This chipper character is a redesign of Mr. Bean, the primary antagonist of Fantastic Mr. Fox (both the book and the film). He was final project in my Character Design class, where students were tasked with taking five characters from an existing story and redesigning them to fit a different genre, style, and time period, among other things.

Perhaps I'll say more about all this stuff later! For the time being, I just wanted to actually start up the blog after several months of deliberation.

Keep your eyes peeled for new stuff here!
