Cloudkid Rebrand! →

So I haven’t really been on the internet in a while but Ive had a lot going on, so its justified. I picked up a sweet internship and the awesome Cloudkid studio where I work full time on a number of incredible projects, I am transferring schools to be back in the mountains where I belong (the city is no place for a dog like me) and I have been trying to deliver commissions while developing a comic of my own. Whew, I feel like I haven’t stopped to breathe in two years! anyway I dont want to bore you with my life happenings that are boring. Something pretty exciting has been going on in the studio lately, Rebranding!! Released yesterday a spanking new website with a beautiful interface and tons of fun details including a look inside the place where you can see some of the stuff Im working on, my co- workers and myself (Im the one in the orange striped dress whos back you can see sometimes, but mostly my computer screen lol!? check it out!

Guy on train:I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos.
Me:*turns up music*
Guy:I said I'd fuck you if you didn't have so many tattoos!
Me:*takes off headphones* Leave. Me. Alone.
Guy:Why the fuck do you have so many tattoos?
Me:
Guy:Are you fucking deaf as well as a piece of trash?
Lady by door:Hey. Leave her alone.
Guy:Are you her trash girlfriend? Fucking dykes, all tattooed like fucking men. Disgusting waste of pussy.
Lady:*moves forward, carefully moves jacket so only I can see the badge on her belt* Are you okay?
Me:Fine. Just wish he'd go away.
Lady cop:I can make that happen.
Guy:Oh, yeah, bitch? Who the fuck are you? I'll kill you!
Lady cop:And that's what I was waiting for. *grabs guy, holds him against the door* Harassing women on the train was enough, but you just threatened a cop. You're battin' a thousand tonight.
Entire train:*applauds*

How to make your Animation/ Illustration portfolio industry ready

A few months ago, representatives and the cofounder of CloudKid animation, an innovative, modern animation studio in Boston came to Massart to review portfolios of juniors and seniors for internships and full time positions. I thought it was going to be a “review” of the portfolio, outlining what employers in the field were looking for and made a last minute decision to go. As luck would have it, they hired me as a paid full time intern for the summer and possibly and with a possibility for future employment. Weeks later, after reviewing portfolios from all around the country, they released this blog post on what they look for in applicants portfolios an tips on skills to focus on for certain positions. I am flattered to have been an example on this post, but seeing some of the other interns work had made me realize I have a bit of studying to do! 

Ps: a sexy, well designed resumé never hurts!

Ive just discovered my all time favorite animator. All kinds of interesting personalities depicted in a simplistic style but made bold and entertaining by smooth exaggerated animation. I appreciate extremely casual and subtle use of surreal events and movement. the exaggerated body language is enough to send me into a fit of giggles.

I found this gorgeous animated short film, which was directed by Ishida YuYasushi.  The stylization and charm reminds me of Studio Ghibli films or anything made by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time.

It’s entitled “Paulette’s Chair”, by the way.
