AFTER EFFECTS

AFTER EFFECTS

I love creating illustrations and have had a desire to make them animate. I have finally dipped my toes into the water of the world of after effects and motion. Having only worked in both programs for about a week I've found myself to very excited about after effects. Below are two short animations I created in the program. I created both illustrations in illustrator. They are meant to have a bit of a palm springs vibe. Both could use some smoothing out the animations. I'm just happy to finally getting some animation experience in!  

Would love to get any feedback, tips, or tutorial recomendations!

2017 GOALS MID-YEAR CHECK IN

Now that July is upon us and half the year has already passed by I thought I would check in on those New Year's resolutions I made myself and see where I stand. Turns out I'm not doing too bad! The ones in bold are the ones I've accomplished so far (8 out of 17) and 2 more are about to be accomplished. The rest could still use some work.  I have to say overall I'm pretty happy about how far I've gotten so far and I'm happy to be reminded by a few of these I still want to carry out. I hope everyone else is accomplishing everything they had hoped to in 2017!


1. Grow in my design career
2. More illustration
3. Update portfolio

4. Stop saying "like"
5. Play the ukelele more
6. Run Ragnar
7. Run 1 half marathon (Happening in August)
8. Workout 5x a week
9. Read 24 books (23 so far!)
10. Shop less
11. Practice minimalism
12. Travel outside the US
13. Learn something new
14. Give a talk
15. Volunteer

16. Complain less
17. Look at my phone less

BÉZIER VOL. 1

I'm super excited to share that Bézier Vol. 1 has finally been released! My work is featured among several other talented vector artists. Digital illustration is still a relatively new hobby of mine and I'm stoked to share it with everyone. You can see my profile here. Or you can get your own copy of the book here.

WYOMING

As I end one chapter and start another I decided to take a week off and explore Wyoming. It was absolutely beautiful! I finally drove a car again for the first time in over a year. It was surprisingly meditative. Utah, Idaho and Wyoming we're just country roads with hardly anyone else on them. We explored the Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and Jackson Hole. It was such a change of pace and scenery compared to the Bay Area. I hope to go back and ski sometime. 

Here are some photos from my trip.

CHANGE OF MEDIUM

Sometimes you need a change of pace and sometimes you need a change of mediums. Had some fun with paint by numbers. First things first if you haven't checked out Therapy the store I highly recommend checking it out. It's great for cute yet somewhat unnecessary things. It is definitely great for gifts. They carry stuff like the "Sweet Treats paint-by-numbers kit." Here's a few I did this weekend. Can't wait to send them out to some friends for a surprise mail treat.
