I strayed away from Deviantart for a while...been more active on tumblr and fairly recently, furaffinity, but I figured I'd come back and broaden my exposure on social media. Seeing how the favorites and comments and such have not faded at all lately, I was only further encouraged to make a comeback and put new stuff on here for 2016!
A lot's happened since I disappeared from DA. I was working at Augenblick Studios as an assistant animator (lip sync) on Golan the Insatiable from October 2014 - May 2015. Then shortly after, I was back at Augenblick, this time as a storyboard artist, for an app series called "The Jellies." My good fortune ran out though and I haven't been working much since. I did get called in for a few weeks to work on a short animation for google education and that helped a lot, but still been kinda in a rut for a while. I am waiting to hear back from a few places, but it's still like sitting on pins and needles. I heard though February things will start picking up again as far as job availability. So fingers crossed.
Enough about that though, aside from working, I went to CTN Expo this year in Burbank and it was AMAZING! I had a great time, loved Burbank and learned a lot about the industry. I met some really amazing animators and made some connections. I really got my money's worth out of the trip. I was selected also to meet with Nickelodeon and get a portfolio review. Got some contacts there and heard back from them too, which was great. I met up with friends in the area, and saw downtown LA and Burbank and got taken around by an awesome friend to see where the different studios were. I am confident I could live there. It's really nice, great weather (my hair never cooperated better), I'll have lots to explore! What ended my trip was that I got super lucky to win a raffle for a studio tour. I got Dreamworks! The campus...is...incredible. Like a totally different world. I'd love to work there someday. I could go on about this but I'm trying to keep it short.
Along with trying to be more active on DA, I hope to produce more animations, shorts or just little exercise as well as full illustrations and storyboards. I have a new film in the works so that should help with those goals.
