Finally! After 4 months of listening to this song on repeat, I finished my animatic for "Disturbia" by Rihanna! In the song, "Disturbia" is a physical place where her paranoid thoughts take control of her mind, and in this video, these paranoid thoughts manifest themselves as various horrible and terrifying encounters. In the end she realizes that these thoughts only exist in her mind and don't really have any power so she is able to be free. Enjoy!

New animation of a commercial for a holiday fashion line (it says Saks Fifth Avenue, but really I just couldn't think of a designer or department store that was more fitting...). The concept for the assignment was "unknown--->known" so I decided to break down the woman at the end into a series of abstract patterns in the beginning.

Since I spent a lot of time this past weekend in transit, in airports and on the subway, here are some drawings of all the other exhausted people traveling somewhere last weekend!

My mom and I have been planning for our trip to India this winter, and we've gotten all excited about the idea of doing reportage there, so today we went out and decided to do a little reportage at the beginning of a snowstorm here in Colorado.
We started before going to see Madagascar 2 (adorable) and drawing the Christmas lights our neighbors had just put up (on their eagle sculpture in their front yard).
It was only just beginning to snow when we went into the movie, and 2 hours after we came out the cars were covered in 2 or 3 inches of snow. So after clearing off the car and driving home, we decided to head out and do some "drive-by" reportage around the neighborhood.

On Saturday I went down to the gay rights rally down at City Hall. It was so inspiring to see how many people showed up for the event! The whole thing had a very hopeful, and more importantly, very active energy to it. I hope to see more rallies like this in the months to come, especially with Obama getting into office. It was great, too, because the weather was dismal up until around 1:00 when the rally started and then the sun came out and it was a beautiful fall day.

First we have an oil painting of a man playing guitar from my painting class the past two weeks.
Next are some more guitarists who were playing outside the subway station in Union Square. For drawing we were supposed to arrange figures in a space, without
any environment, to try and show space.
Finally, there was this exercise where we copy the shapes of an aerial view of a city and turn it into whatever we want. Mine kind of looks like some Seussical aerial city or something.

First we have a new animatic for a commercial advertising a masquerade ball on Halloween at the MET (and the storyboard).
Next is part 1 of my painting final project, which will be 3 paintings of my family as primates. I had fun with the first one, of me as a gibbon, so now here are 2 bike-riding primates in India!

We went to the Natural History Museum to draw one of the dioramas today, and I chose the leopard and the bushpig. Throughout the time I was drawing, families kept coming up to the diorama, and no matter what language they were speaking it was "Blah blah blah blah bushpig." I was really starting to like the word "bushpig" after a few hours.

So for my painting class, we were supposed to create an illustration of ourselves as any animal we wanted! I chose a gibbon (because who doesn't love a gibbon?) who is eating dumplings (my favorite food) and clearing away a spot in his mess of a room to draw. He stole my glasses and my pen, too...Now for this week, we are making an oil painting of the same composition.

Last Friday I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with my drawing class where we were supposed to sketch different plants to use for a single composition later. Here are my sketches, my thumbnails, and then the final drawing. I realized everything I've been drawing this semester has been kind of creepy or black and white (there're a lot of snakes and spiders and Frankenstein the works) so it was fun to do something colorful and pretty instead!
