Hi my lovely art friends!!

Hope everyone is doing well! I wanted to update my journal for many reasons.

One being that I miss you guys!! :)

Two, I got to be apart of a great photo-shoot with my co-worker/friend Diana. This shoot was basically to showcase a new line of purses for coach. :) Here's the behind the scenes to the I'll post the final photos when she updates her blog!! (btw, I'm, by no means, a professional model, just helped her out for this shoot ;) ) haha.  

Third, just wanted to give a shout out to my husband, :iconryantottle: He just landed a job in the talent development program at Disney's Feature Animation studio in Burbank, California!! I'm so very proud of him, he's super talented and very deserving of this great opportunity! I hope everyone will support him while he's there. I miss him very much! :)

In other news, I'd like to tell you a little bit about a Blue Sky Studios 3D animation art show, happening at the Norman Rockwell Museum!!

There's going to be a lot of behind the scenes artwork including a replica of our own sculpting room, with shelves full of old and new maquettes!! Should be a fun time!

For more information on how to RSVP go here:…

Also, I just finished a few sculpts! Hope to share them with you soon, so stay tuned!

Love always,

Argh... curse my being located on the West coast, I really REALLY wanted to see some Horton Hears a Who artwork. Since an 'Art of" book was never released.

You're on the west coast? That's a great thing isn't it? I mean weather wise, you guys are winning ;) I, too, wish there were art of books for Blue Sky's movies...

Yeah that I am, and truth be told, I MUCH prefer cold weather. Screw this 80 degree BS lol. Yeah, Is there any remaining art for Horton hears a Who? Particularily the character design for "Jojo"? I'd love to get a look at it.
I'm a film music scoring/composition student by the way, so maybe we'll end up working on the same project and not even know it someday! lol.

What? I just heard about one of my old animator friends ALSO landing a job as a story artist at Disney!



Soooooooooooooooo.... should I ask if Disney was mass-hiring recently?
