So, school started up again on January 27th which means, I probably won't be posting anything unless it's school related or I somehow manage to find time to work on anymore personal work. I will, however, be working on my thesis and I am going to be working on a film poster for that soon.
The classes that I am taking this semester are:

Senior Thesis 2:
The title is pretty self-explanatory. I'm going to be working on the rest of my thesis, which is an animated film. Trailer can be viewed here.…

Professional Practices:
Also self explanatory. We're going to be learning about how the professional side of the illustration industry works.

CG 2:
We're going into animation!! :D And our first assignment is to create a character. I'm going to make my MMA character, Christine :) I can't wait to get started. I'm going to work on the draft for her tomorrow and work on the modeling in Maya throughout the week. I will post the rendering of her here when it's done.

Reading NYC African Artists:
My boss actually sent me an e-mail about this class being in danger of being cancelled if more students didn't enroll in the class and even though I really didn't want to have anymore classes, I felt guilty if I didn't take the class because 1. it sounds really important to me as an African American 2. it works with my schedule and 3. from the syllabus, it doesn't seem like a heavy work-load so, I thought, why not? So far the first assignment wasn't too much work and I actually enjoyed the readings so so far, I'm not regretting it.

Queer Designs for Living in my America:
A class for LGBTQ studies!! This couldn't be an any more perfect class for me to learn more about the LGBTQ community and get my last history credit. My professor seems interesting enough and he had us interview each other about what we hoped to get out of the class and then we had to relay the information we heard about each other to the group. The guy that I interviewed is also gay and he likes anime! That reminds me. He told me that he wanted me to draw him something. Need to email him... but anyway, my professor wanted everyone in the class who's LGBTQ to come out to the class so when the guy who interviewed me spoke, he outed me and I outed him to the class in return. Never felt so liberated in my life :)

So, I will be reporting on how the class goes and my grades at the end of the term like I always do and also, my thesis and graduation.

Aaaaand, on Tuesday, it'll be my 8th month anniversary with my girlfriend :) :heart: I felt like just yesterday, we were celebrating our 7th o.o Time has flown by so fast... So hopefully, this weekend, she will be spending the night with me at my dorm and then we will be going out to eat. I so can't wait! I miss this girl like crazy!!! :(

Thanks for reading!!


Artist | Student | Varied
United States
I attend Parsons, the New School for Design (Class of 2014)

I'm an illustrator, digital painter, animator and writer. I love story telling and writing about characters that I feel don't get enough representation in all forms of entertainment media. Being an African American lesbian atheist, I never see any characters on TV or in comics or movies that are anything like me. Someday, I would love to get a comic book and cartoon series started as well as publish the stories that I have been writing.

I am always open for commissions and I've done plenty of freelance work during school so I'm available to do commissions during school too.

If you wanna check out my animation vidoes, listen to my talented friend Superbluegirl91 perform some awesome karaoke covers or see whatever else i record, please subscribe to me at my Youtube channel:
