Most of my work this summer have been sketches and animation drawings…. I got tired of it, and wanted to create something more substantial. Three weekends passed and nothing happened.

One of the plants that I sketched was tall and amazing. I couldn’t really capture how its body seemed to be dancing. The other giant […]

Finally I got to read a book recommended to me years ago by an illustration teacher. Bird By Bird, by Anne Lamott, had nugget after nugget of words on writing, and the creative process, in general. Some highlights: – Nobody is reading your first drafts, so go crazy. – On perfectionism…. It’s ok to make a […]
