Here's a little animated e-card I made for my mom this mother's day. My friends can attest to just how much my mom and I do things and spend a lot of time together (hence the title Partners in Crime). In this simple video are just some of the special reasons that make her so great!
So I pretended to help her find this "message", went to her Facebook feed, played the video, then squeaked "Happy Mother's Day!" :))
Anyway, if you can relate to being partners in crime with your mom, then feel free to share this video with them! And happy mother's day to all moms out there :)

Finally my thesis film is now online! Before anything else, I just want to give a huge thank you to everybody who have helped me out in this project, whether in big ways such as arranging music or singing for me, or in small ways like little messages of encouragement. When I chose to do a musical frame-by-frame flash animation for my thesis, I didn't really consider just how much of a challenge this would be especially since I didn't know how to make music (my biggest problem). All I wanted was motivation for me to practice frame-by-frame animation, and nothing motivates more than deadlines. Plus, I thought making characters dance and sing would be fun (which it still is). This project really pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways, and my constant mantra was that nothing worth doing ever comes easy. I still have no idea how I got through it all if not for the people around me and God's grace.
Sorry for the cheese! Haha! But here it is! The fruit of a year of tears, frustration, disappointment, small failures and successes. I hope you enjoy!
Check out the website for more on the project, some Cupid trivia , pre-production images and tidbits, and more! http://www.cupidsserenade.com
UPDATE (May 13 2013): The film is temporarily password-protected for festival purposes. Wish me luck! :D

Gonna keep this post short. Tomorrow is my thesis defense! (GAH!!!) and I've still got a few things to prepare. But here are some of my collaterals for my upcoming thesis animation, Cupid's Serenade.
|My poster, two types of CD jackets, and a CD sticker|
|A heart-shaped CD jacket to fit the topic of my animation. This is what I'll be submitting to my defense.|
|And a square-shaped CD Jacket (with CD sticker) for my other subject|
(because the heart-shaped one's so expensive to print)
|And my poster!|

|Ship of Dreams|
Aside from the beautiful painting, I think part of the reason why this video appeals so much to me is the irresistible music (It's called "Checking Things Off Of A To-Do List Early In The Morning" by Lullatone).
The Art Attack series is just what I needed to ease me out of my slight creative burnout.
And at the risk of sounding like an ad for Soul Pancake, here's a really funny (and art-related!) video from their other web series, "Live A Little" hosted by the super random Candace:
