Happy Birthday Mom

This post is dedicated to my mom, Regina Hurley.  She has always supported me in every way possible.  Loved me better than I could hope for.   I have posted these two pictures that I took from my "box" where I keep my memories.  I have never shown anyone things from this box, but I wanted to pull them out for the first time to show how much she means to me:

I love my mom:

 From my childhood my best memories are those of creating things with my mom, from oatmeal to clay!  I always hold this image in my heart of us cooking oatmeeal together:

My mom has also inspired me as an artist.  She is an accomplished artist, and I follow in her footsteps.  She has shown me how to stay true to my art by putting what she love into her art:

(I helped make the clay for this sculpture, thanks to her)!

This awesome sculpture is now in the famous Huntington Library in San Marino, CA.  Go Mom!

You are my Life.  I love you.  Happy birthday.

First Pass at Animating Chunks -revised-

I am so excited as I have started animating Chunks.  I am about 1/3 of the way through my film with the roughest of rough animation.  Here is what I have so far - my first pencil test.  I feel pretty good about it seeing how as before I would have to draw right next to the pencil test to have anything start to work.

I have figured out my character design and background for Chunks!  I still have to make models sheets and clean-up the backgrounds though.  I haven't uploaded my character designs yet, but here is the main background so far:

Edward Muybridge


Here are some links an animated sequence of drawings I did in Steve Brown's life drawing classing a couple weeks ago.  In the class we talked about Edward Muybridge as well as artist who have showed his work in different ways.  One way was animated his photo sequences.  The animated clips I have posteed were drawn from the model and animated based on these views:
