Work on Shivering Snivels is coming along! (Slowly)(gumble, grumble) 

The manuscript has its final edit done and our publisher is ready to put together the mock book. 


The next challenge is to see how we will place the text with the images and work out any kinks that might arise. 

This is also when we finalize the illustration style. 

Once that’s approved, we will move on to the final illustrations! 

Whew, is it done yet? ;p

Hiding In My Closet…

A Self Portrait

A Self Portrait

A Self Portrait for #tbt
Isn’t funny how we can forget the person we used to be? I’ve been doing a lot of growth and self-improvement lately. So when I rediscovered this photograph I was kind of blow away by how the “person I am trying to be” was sitting there looking up at me from the past.

Now, I’m not saying I want to revert to that person I was. I’ve learned a lot since then and grown in many good ways. However, I’ve also been knocked around by life a lot since then, and I think I lost a few things I loved very much on the way.

I’m not sure exactly what the lesson here is. If there is one at all.

I just wanted to share this little part of my personal journey; something I’ve never been that interested in doing in the past. I’m very excited to see where my long and winding road takes me.

What else will I find

as I chip away at my cocoon

and reveal the girl inside?

Doodle Of The Day

(You know what i mean)

2016-06-22-12-20-42

Playing around with ideas for a new rag doll. Since that’s such a productive use of my time…

Doing More Doodling!

Think I can do a doodle a day?

2016-06-12-10-58-45

Yeah, neither do I.

Well, I could probably draw one thing a day, but I doubt I would post them.  I’m pretty bad at this whole “blogging” thing, so I decided to challenge myself to post more. The hardest part will be overcoming my ego. The main reason I don’t post more of my work is because I don’t think most of it is good enough. There is this intense pressure to deliver awe-inspiring work as constantly as possible. However, this is probably an unachievable goal. So for now, I’ll try to post AT LEAST ONE new doodle a week.

Hope you all enjoy :3

A Night With Imaginese

Spent the evening with Shivering Snivels’ partners,

Imaginese!

So I’ve been developing Shivering Snivels in many ways, one of which was through workshops hosted by the philanthropic production company, Imaginese.  While most members pay dues, I worked out an arrangement with them for a membership in exchange for event photography! These amazing and inspiring artists devote their time to teaching and mentoring public school students in the Los Angles, when they are not developing their own impressive productions.

This week they hosted a filmmaker’s Expo where they previewed their writers humorous and poignant work for industry artists. A night filled with laughter and great constructive critiques!

And it was my pleasure to photograph the fun-filled event.

Happy MOM’S Day!

Shout out to all the great Moms out there!

Whether your children are human, puppy, or lost space alien, this day is for you!
