This an­i­ma­tion artist re­veals her scrib­bles.

Tail-Fin Soup

“I usu­ally draw with a story in mind. In­spired by Hans Chris­tian An­der­sen’s fairy tales, I wanted the grim con­se­quences of a fish­er­man’s catch of the day.”

Good Ol’ Sto­gie

“I’ve al­ways loved sketch­ing age, es­pe­cially crusty ol’ men. The grumpier the bet­ter.”

Tricksy Tardi­grade

“I started this draw­ing af­ter my shiba chewed my Mac­book cord. I wanted a story of a robotech­ni­cian and her mis­chievous wa­ter bear.”

Synthetic Sig­nals

“I’m a huge fan of the 1995 Ghost in the Shell film. Hu­man­is­tic cy­borgs are just way more fun to draw than reg­u­lar hu­mans.”

Fall­ing for Con­nec­tion

“Work­ing in film, hubby and I en­dure many long-dis­tance runs. Af­ter a month of no in­ter­net, I drew the long­ing to vid-chat.”

A Tribal Fu­ture

“I saw a fash­ion spread of Grace Bol, and in­stantly fell in love. Light’s re­ac­tion on dark skin is just spec­tac­u­lar.”

Read­ing dif­fer­ent cul­tures and myths of­fers a play­ground of ideas for me

Eat Crow

“I ref­er­ence a lot of mytholo­gies in my work. Mor­righan from Ir­ish mythol­ogy vis­ited the bat­tle­field as a raven.”

Mon­ster Lead Me Home

“Lis­ten­ing to Sara Hart­man’s Mon­ster Lead Me Home, this vis­ual popped into my head. A serene but im­pend­ing doom.”

The Dryad and Ko­dama

“Read­ing dif­fer­ent cul­tures and myths of­fers a play­ground of ideas for me. Here’s a Greek and Ja­panese mythol­ogy mash up of tree spir­its.”

A Place with a View

“My hus­band was writ­ing a story and wanted ‘a cute lit­tle cot­tage on a cliff.’ A gnome hat cot­tage seemed spot-on.”
