It's crazy to think that in 24 hours from now I will have finished my last class ever!
I can still remember walking into the Pencil Test Lab at school 6 years ago for the first time and seeing the poster of Jessie from Toy Story on the wall, knowing that I found the right place by going here. And I wasn't mistaken.
And now here I am, all these years later, animating the finishing touches on my last shot for BFA before I have to turn in it for good tomorrow morning.
What a bittersweet feeling, and thank you to all who made my time there worth it.
One of our first assignments in BFA this year was to design a key that would open the box of good or evil. I was given the box of good, and so this was the design I came up with.
It was a tough assignment considering I don't do much digital painting or vis dev anymore, so I'm pretty pleased with the turnout.
This summer I had the honor to be selected as one of the six animation interns at Pixar Animation Studios. The others selected were Sikand Srinivas, Nicole Ridgwell, Regina Donavan, Michael Bidinger, and Sani Spectra. The 12 week program was overwhelming and daunting, but in all the right ways. I learned such a tremendous amount, and felt that I truly progressed and grew in ways that I never knew possible. The humbling journey ended all too soon, but it's left me with a hunger for more as the future rolls on.
Here's my demo reel— an entire collection of the the work that I did during my 3 months there:
