Getting There

Posted on November 28, 2011

  I’m working on a series of images that describe the medical “referral” process, for when a woman and infant need more serious medical care than a village clinic can provide. The method of coming to the communicative¬† / universal imagery is interesting. It’s compounded by the need for a cultural mixing, so it feels […]

Something Good

Posted on November 16, 2011

  I’ve just picked up a freelance job doing animation and illustration for Global Health Media, an organization founded with the specific mandate of providing effective instructions on how to provide practical medical care for emergency and preventative issues. This is targeting areas of the world where professional medical care is not practically available or […]

Help Comes Along

Posted on September 19, 2011

  The “Happy & Gay” animation production has been given a wonderful chance to move ahead and pay for some help to get this done! A truly lovely benefactor has granted H&G with a donation. This is spectacular, as it just kind of came out of the blue… After the news arrived, my head was […]

End of the Summer Good-Bye

Posted on September 19, 2011

  Well, at the end of the summer it was time for everyone to go their separate ways and take a breather before school started up again. I invited my wonderful gang of animation interns to come and share a meal together at my house as a way to celebrate. (The weird legs beneath me […]

In-Between Degrees

Posted on July 22, 2011

  It’s sooooo hot today, but the humidity is worse. Inside, it’s nice and cool! Hooray! This is an example of what my animation process looks like as it begins in Flash. I fade the background (photoshop tiff file) so I can see the line drawings better. Then I animate the keyframes, which are the […]

Hot Dog!

Verrrrry lucky to be in an air-conditioned studio, as today’s heat is rising to 100 F. No lunch outside today.

Tuesday In-Betweens

Posted on July 20, 2011

Today we’re a gang of 4, with Nivedita, Ana, Stephanie and me. They’re doing “repair work” on some of the shots that were done quite a while ago, improving some of the technique so it matches the quality of the more recent animation. I’m doing some fun key poses of the two main couples dodging […]

Monday, Monday

Posted on July 18, 2011

Monday, back at the studio with Sarah and Stephanie. I’m working on keyframes for shots, and then moving on the next, etc.. I decided that ‘ll plow through the rest of the film like this, and then go back for in-betweens and stuff. If I get some cash windfall, this method would also allow me […]

Summer Studio

Posted on July 16, 2011

I’m at RISD this summer, with the generous support of the film-animation-video (fav) department. I have use of their nifty lab (with ac!) which allows for speedier and more powerful rendering, work process, and computers for all of my RISD interns!! Here they are at the start of our summer. Stephanie, Sarah, Ana, and Nivedita […]
