shy playing in the forest

Just completed my second animation and I can tell you right now...that I'm hooked with all this cartoon business! Lol   There are so many things to learn and I am so eager to know everything there is about animation!!
I just need to find time between painting and getting ready for my upcoming exhibition next summer :)
Hope you are well, my friend and enjoying the holidays!

happy holidays

I am in love...with..animation!! My head is sooo exploding with all these ideas and scenarios for my little people. I go to bed at night and I find myself in cartoon land! Forget about Christmas decorating and shopping! All I have accomplished so far with anything Christmas is my annual card. I know I'll be running around like a crazy person this weekend trying to decorate and shop!
I feel so alive again, I find myself smiling all the time, I'm pretty sure that people think that I'm in love. Except it's not a man..but a cartoon! hahahaha

My other news is that last weekend I participated in a small Christmas show that my cousin Penny invited me to. I really didn't expect that I would actually sell anything but I went anyway to spend time with her since I hardly see her. Well,... we barely spoke, we were too busy selling!! our table was the busiest there!  Penny makes the yummiest little soaps and I say yummy because they smell so good, you just want to eat them. I sold lots of pendants and my new prints :)) I'm so happy with the way these prints turned out.

BTW have I told you I'm in love? Lol
This is my next project in progress. '' Shy'' is making his debut in animation land :)  Can't wait to show you!

Blondie and Daisy animation

please let the video load all the way before watching :)

Ok, I am super thrilled with this new art form!! It never occurred to me really, to ever try it, but like with everything else in my art career...I stumbled on it by researching for something else...hahaha Ohhh how I love it when these things happen!! Just like when I was a textile artist and preparing to teach "printing on fabric", I tried it on paper (cause I was too lazy to get up and cut fabric from the bolt) lol That day was a turning point in my art career! I "discovered"...mixed media!
I'm not saying that I will become an animator, but wow!
I was actually researching, pen tablets and saw this animation software that was included with this tablet and .....downloaded the trial version to see what it's all about.
So, here I am weeks later..after many trials and errors..with my little video..
I know it's not perfect..and that's ok for now. I'm so proud of it :)
" Blondie and Daisy"
I have so many ideas, my head is about to explode! Lol
My little characters are coming alive :)
