Hello! My name is Palmer. I'm a #2D #animation 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 https://palmeranimates.wordpress.com
“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.’”

These children’s drawings are great. I also like the way the drawings were animated for this article.
RIP Mort Drucker. Spent a lot of hours on my best friend’s front porch reading Mad Magazine TV & movie spoofs drawn by him. https://nyti.ms/2ViYpIn
Dang. One of my earliest theater experiences was West Side Story. I would love to see this new, very contemporary version. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/22/magazine/west-side-story.html
Bonus toot: You don’t have to haul freight or race on an oval track to call yourself a driver. You’re a swimmer as soon as you get in the water, whether you compete for medals or not. And all you have to do to be an artist is to make something.
Great NPR report on the health benefits of artmaking, even if you don’t think you’re an artist. https://www.npr.org/2019/12/30/792439555/making-art-is-good-for-your-health-heres-how-to-start-a-habit
My artwork "Aquatic Archaeology" was inspired by the inside of an IKEA lamp. https://www.deviantart.com/sylviaritter/art/Aquatic-Archaeology-644529573 #art #illustration #mastoart
This is the first toot from an official account for #Glimpse, a new fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program.
