animation tests

Thought I'd share a couple animation tests from a project I started last year. Suffering a similar fate as many potential short films, this short will indefinitely be on hold.  It might come back to life and I have some ideas for it, but odds are by then I will have moved on from these tests, so I figure I might as well post while I don't mind looking at the shelf life for liking my own work is very limited :)  Hope you enjoy!

also, starting to double post on tumblr:

People I don't talk to anymore

Recently I was sorting through my things in my old bedroom at my parents house.  I found a nice box of scraps, old letters, mood rings, and trinkets from my friends from grade school.  I found this letter from my first best friend.  

She told me how we’d all be best friends forever.


I thought about all the people that pass through our lives, some just for a season.  They leave you with memories, teach you something, share in some part of the story of your life. Sometimes those people do stay with you forever, and even when they don’t maybe a little part of them does. Nowadays with the internet its not too hard to find old faces and friends and stay in touch, but it's also easy to not actually talk to people anymore. I felt inspired to start a little project to try to remedy that a bit; a journey through memory and hopefully a chance to reconnect with some good people. 

This goes out to all the people that have passed through my life and brought a smile or story :)

to all the wonderful people
and to some hazy faces of classmates forgotten

so coming soon: old school classmates, unconquered middle school romances, and neighborhood bullies. (if you're in any of my old yearbooks, consider yourself warned :) )

stayed tuned on my instagram:


(and some that I do)

Tatar Times

Something I enjoy about living with my grandmother is been spending time with my extended family when they come to visit.  It's nice seeing this little old house fill up with family and food.  Here are some summer memories and moments from times spent with "the Tatars". Had some of these in my head for a little while,  and this week seems like an appropriate time to finish up! Thankful for the Tatars! BESOS

Wing Nights

My "Roomate" and I are both big fans of chicken wings.  We were happy to learn of a place with a....50% off chicken wing happy hour!!! Needless to say, we have a new go-to spot for when we hit the town :)

Las Revistas

We've been enjoying our hand-me-down magazine subscription from our next door neighbors beauty shop.  She always brings over all the ones in Spanish for my grandmother.  Nana has a hard time reading up close so I've been reading them to her.  She helps me with my pronunciation and fills me in on who's who.
