"Your network is crucial...I know that I have put a lot of time and effort into getting in touch with the art community and just generally getting to know my fellow peers in this industry better.

Especially as a freelancer, I know I don't just get jobs because of my reputation or agency. Getting recommended by peers and building a presence on social media are both things that have helped tremendously."

Hey y'know what have another anim! This time from early last year! More 'Rupes. ⭐ 💛

After an anim I made very recently, (which will show up later) I realise I coulda done a fair bit better w this, and already feel like redoing it. But I still sorta like it enough to post.

In case you haven't heard, the (book) Winnie the Pooh is now public domain. NOT the red shirt Disney stuff.

I hope you start doing the thing. 🤍

Managed to catch most of 'The Polar Express' last night which I had not seen before.

The CGI has aged terribly of course, but the story was surprisingly good! I can see why it's a perennial favourite.

Off model, stylised Jeanette Millers from Alvin and The Chipmunks!

ANNIE Award 2022 nominees announced!

SO glad go so many noms. Also some for , and even one for ! And I am so Glad for !

I happened to catch a new episode of The Simpsons for the first time in years and it's still somewhat shocking to see how different it is from its heyday. It's like they mined the characters as deep as they could and can't go any deeper.

That being said, compared to the show that came immediately after, it's still superior in every way.

Figured I'd post the stages of my flareon pixel animation! Also wee commentary in image descriptions. 💛 (Tho I'm not too good explaining myself.)


Bonfire (bonfirenetworks.org/) looks interesting but the website says next to nothing about what it actually is!
