What I'm doing

It's such a blessing to be able to spend more time with my grandmother.  I've been having a great time lately hanging out with her in the kitchen and hearing her stories.  We've made tons of OJ, and eaten too much.  Here's a taste of what I've been doing:



Hope to do more things like this.  Animators, forgive my crude animation...I'd love to do more with limited animation, so I'm doing some tests/illustrations at the same time. So fun to make things move, enjoy!

You have a great style!! You invoke emotions in all of your artwork! It reminds me what I need to strive for as an artist!
