For as long as I can remember, art and animation has always been what I have enjoyed most in life. Some people love playing sports, some people love tinkering with computers, but for me I love drawing. Like most artists (and kids), I grew up drawing all the time and watching cartoons and animated movies. Getting better as the years went by, I decided to take my skills to The Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg to get my BFA in Media Arts & Animation. When I graduated, I worked for about a year, but was discouraged with where I was with my artistic career. So I decided to pack my bags for California and learn what I really wanted to master in - 2D Animation. The Academy of Art University welcomed me in to their MFA 2D animation program. I've now finished school and heading out into the real world to find that animation dream job.
This blog though is the perfect place for you to hop aboard this animation journey of mine to see how I work, my process, and artistic adventures. If you like what you see then be sure to follow a long or add me to your bookmarks as I try to update frequently. That way you will never miss any of my escapades.
