Sketchbook Saturdays #2

Sketchbook Saturdays is a blog series where I share my art and sketches for the week! I will not be putting pressure on myself to make each work perfect; my goal with this is to learn, experiment, and just keep drawing!

Hi everyone! This week I've got sketches of a beauty queen and some dinosaurs:

I wanted Miss Jamaica to win

AHH FINALLY! We've come to the twelfth and last princess in this GIF series!

To go with this post, I've uploaded my first time lapse/ speed animation video of this GIF in my YouTube channel:


And with that, I can't believe I'm finally done!!! Thanks so much for all the enthusiasm, support, and overall positive response to my Disney Princess GIF series. I do hope you enjoy watching the video and please subscribe to my channel if you'd like to see more!

Almost There

Almost There
Tiana animated GIF

Here's the eleventh princess in my Disney GIF series! I absolutely love how Tiana is such a go-getter and keeps her eyes on the prize when it comes to her dreams. I sometimes feel like I can relate to her--both in a good, focused-on-her-dreams kind of way, and a bad too-focused-on-her-dreams kind of way!

For this GIF I decided to portray her in that very iconic wishing-on-a-star moment in the movie.

Just one last princess left and I'll be done with this GIF series! (you could say I'm...almost there! *ba-dum-tss*) Unless of course Disney releases another Princess movie!

Check out the previous princesses below!

Here's number ten in my Disney Princess GIF series!

I had the toughest time thinking of how to portray Jasmine for my GIF. In fact, here's the first sketch side-by-side with an unfinished color blocking guide:

Sketchbook Saturdays #1

In an effort to keep a habit of drawing consistently, I've started a new series on my blog called Sketchbook Saturdays! This is where I'll show any personal sketches/illustrations I've drawn within the week--and yes that includes both the good AND the bad! *cringe*

Music, Laughter, and Love - Jans' Birthday eCard

Hey guys! I have a fun new eCard to share with you today!


My cousin asked me to create a short animation as a birthday surprise for her fiance Jans. When I asked what theme she wanted she said that Jans likes music and that the surprise birthday party would be in a karaoke. With that in mind, I drew some inspiration from the Monsters' Inc intro and the taste visualization in Ratatouille, and came up with this jazzy ecard:

I also made a square version on my Instagram.
