Pinned toot

Hello! My name is Palmer. I'm a generalist, living and working in West Jordan, Utah, USA. I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in animation from Columbus College of Art & Design in 2016. You can see my portfolio, demo reel, and résumé at palmeranimates.wordpress.com

I animate using on a refurbished HP Z400 workstation running /Linux, and a 20-inch Yiynova tablet monitor. I love drawing with lots of squash, stretch, smears, and multiples.

“The way to learn to draw is by drawing. People who make art must not merely know about it. [...] A scientist may know all about aeronautics without being able to handle an airplane. It is only by flying that he can develop the senses for flying. If I were asked what one thing more than any other would teach a student how to draw, I should answer, ‘Drawing — incessantly, furiously, painstakingly drawing.’”

A little influence map for Sarah. I took a lot of inspiration from cartoon characters I love, be it design choices, personality, way of speaking, etc.

Understated Christmas desktop wallpaper I made a couple of years ago. Feel free to download, use, modify, and redistribute.

@pixelfed Where do we report bugs related to pixelfed.social? Should we use the pixelfed github?

So, basically it's an invitation to pitch an idea to a major network, tied to their existing IP, for unknown terms and probably without labor protections. Hard pass.
