Chin Up Chin Up Animation!

I saw Chin Up Chin Up this past winter at an Allston bar called Great Scott and stumbled upon this video shortly thereafter. I can’t say enough about it – Its so FUN! I re-stumbled upon it because I have it saved in my favorites on YouTube and thought that it was only appropriate to share with those of you who haven’t seen it before…Its only a matter of a few months before T-Shirts look like this music video.

Late Nights!

Well tonight may be the second all-nighter of the week…Critique is tomorrow but I feel great about everything and I’ll definitely have things done by then…that is if I yank myself off this internet! I tried to print on this chip board that was pretty thick and almost broke my printer – That would have been clutch! Speaking of which…I love my Canon i9900 – So far I highly recommend it – Almost an entire year of great printing!

Sketchbook

I love sketchbooks – I use them for everything – Toilet paper, To-Do Lists, Sketching, Storing Important Papers, among other things…I wish I did more drawing in them and less to-do lists, but thats just how things are. I’m going to share a sketch every week with everyone on here…it’ll be fun! With this web 2.0 technology you can even comment and let me know if you like them or not – I promise, I won’t be offended if you love/hate them all.

I just bought some super cheap Gouache and this is my first time trying it!
Aliens
