Popped my flash drive in today and came across the production drawings I did for Story Time.
Haha, as you'll notice, there's not a whole lot...it was pretty weird, this animation. The first drawings I did were these
In fact it's the ONLY drawing I did of the Wolf Mama before I started animating haha! Pretty much just like "Ok. That looks good I guess. Let's do this."
It was nice! No fuss! Though I don't really think this method can work for many animations. Story Time is pretty lazy though. I am pretty lazy. I don't even feel like typing anymore. m lzy.
Have some pictures.
(ew what is that ugly beast in the orange hoodie)
Oh yeah, originally I was going to draw myself with an actual recording set. Then I remembered I am lazy, much too lazy to figure out how to borrow proper recording equipment from CalArts, and pulled my iphone out of my pocket instead.
My professor, Niki Rousso-Schindler and classmates from her summer school class on food anthropology. Also an animal crossing guy.
Return of Gastelbrau!
I really really loved making Gastelbrau. Ever since making it I've been wanting to continue with it, too. I have a lot of ideas! I would love to make some books or comics.
More vampires! Baby Gastelbrau! (And that's not an older Gabi!)
and of course...WEREWOLFS! Who didn't see that one coming? It's against the laws of media to have presence of vampires and not eventually have a werewolf show up. Stephanie Meyer knows what I'm talking about.
I am taking a summer school class about food anthropology. For my mid term I was to read about the fascinating AUSTRIAN DUMPLING! And make a presentation. So prepare yourself for some dumpling facts.
There's a certain idea of male strength and masculinity tied to dumplings...
Women say that men expect meat and dumplings as often as possible. Some dumpling recipes are even noted as important for a woman to be able to make them to attract a man! Even though the ingredients are simple enough, a meal with dumplings, meat and gravy is time consuming and labor intensive...and that just won't do for the modern Austrian lady on-the-go.
Though their roots are in home-cooking, these days dumpling production is pretty industrialized and can be found readily available in grocery stores and restaurants. Way to go, modern civilization!
Dumplings are usually named after their place of origin. There are many names and types (none of which I will ever attempt to pronounce) such as...
For a while now I've been absolutely and shamelessly and distractingly addicted to following the food bloggery revolution going on in the internet world...
I'd have to say my favorite is Mama Pea's blog--no one has inspired me more to become a vegetarian/vegan more than she! Not only are her recipes creative and delicious looking, her writing is hysterical!
And to top it all off she has two adoooooooooorable little girls
Lulu + Gigi!
These two are the cutest and funniest little things, and as you might have noticed that I generally like to draw cute little things, I ended up doin' this little internet stalkery doodle
If you are a fan of delicious and healthy food and/or would like to be entertained and endeared go check out her web site!
Why am I posting this? I don't even like this. I don't even like Valentines day. Once you stop making shoeboxes with glitter and stickers and buying Tiny Toons Valentines cards sets it's just not fun anymore. BAH HUMBUG
