So for my first major project in Experimental Animation II, I wanted to create a short music video piece set to an amazing track by my friend Cyrus Baty. I wanted to do an abstract piece at that, which isn't all to common in an industry dominated by character focused pieces.
Sooooo I made it, and it's definitely a project I'd like to continue to a fully realized piece by May. Yeehaw

Reading poems, painting self portraits, packing bags for NY.
Mythistorema - George Seferis
"I woke with this marble head in my hands;
it exhausts my elbow and I don’t know where to put it down.
It was falling into the dream as I was coming out of the dream
so our life became one and it will be very difficult for it to separate again.
I look at the eyes: neither open nor closed
I speak to the mouth which keeps trying to speak
I hold the cheeks which have broken through the skin.
That’s all I’m able to do."

I never post on blogs, which is something I should probably get more into. So, since last time we met, I finished the school year, got an internship, got a place to stay in manhattan, am currently packing to leave Detroit at the end of the month, cried when my senior friends graduated, saw our awesome student exhibition, and received a faculty merit award for:
This piece --->;
special thanks to Brent for being my perpetual model of awesome.
So I've done a lot of work this semester, or even this year rather, that I will definitely post at some point in the next few weeks. Most importantly however, I uploaded my new show reel onto Vimeo, and I figure... since I have an internship doing motion graphics, that does deserve the biggest shout out :)
I did my first painting of the break so far. 1 hour, high key study in blue.
