RAW:Los Angeles


Cool news! I will be participating in RAW:Los Angeles, taking place on February 18th, 2016 at the Globe Theatre!

RAW is an organization that puts on eclectic art shows in cities all over the U.S. (as well as in Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand), showcasing the work of independent artists that spans visual art, film, photography, fashion, make-up, and music.

In the coming weeks I will post the work that I will be including in the show - which will be for sale to those attending! I will for sure be including some illustrations, some needle felting, and maybe some mixed-media work that I’m thinking of trying out.

Want to attend? Go to my profile to buy tickets! Buying tickets directly through my profile basically funds my participation in the show. What that also means is that even if you aren’t sure whether you will go to the show or if you just plain can’t go, you can still buy a ticket as a donation to support my participation!

I’ll keep you posted in the coming weeks with more details!

***Update 02/01: I decided to give a little thank-you gift to anyone who buys tickets through my profile! If you buy one, I'll give you either a miniature needle-felted piece, a small print of one of my illustrations, or a 30% off coupon for my Etsy shop! Your choice :)

Needle Felting



I posted at the beginning of this year about the opening of my Etsy shop, Mt. Marten. Well, I finally added a page here dedicated to showcasing some of my needle felted work. Like my other pages, you can find the tab for it up top. If you're interested in seeing what work I have for sale, make sure to visit my shop!

Animation: Manaphy



Here's a short animation of the Pokemon Manaphy I did for a Tumblr request. Still experimenting with this sketchy style of animating in Photoshop!

Animation: Narwhal



After my "Arctic Adventure" illustration I felt compelled to animate a narwhal. Done in Photoshop- I'm liking this sketchy style!

Animation: Oil Pastel Animation Test




This is a quick bit of animation I did to test animating with oil pastels. I still need to work on the technique, but I think it's a good start! I'm working towards getting a method down so that I can animate a short film in this style in the near future.

Animation: Potato Roll


     A quick animation I did while out at breakfast this past weekend. It's a Potato roll! (Potato is the main character of my comic that is currently in the works!)

Hedgehog in the Fog by Yuri Norstein is my favorite animated short film, so I did this illustration of Hedgehog as a little tribute.
