There once was a paranoid mouse

For my VIZA 613 course, we have to create a 30 second short based on a limerick, story, or poem. I decided to choose a limerick containing animals!


There once was a paranoid mouse
Who heard scratching sounds in her house
In fear of her life
She picked up a knife
And chopped off the tail of her spouse

A Series of an Old Dog's Bark

To the dog who fetched newspapers, balls, bowls, and sticks, the dog who nibbled on my back, the dog who sneezed when she got excited, the dog who greeted me at the door when I came home from school, the dog who never failed to scarf down her food, the dog who loved "schwimmen", rides in the car, walks, treats and more, the dog with various nick names and tricks, the dog who was the perfect wake up alarm, the dog who continuously dragged me on the leash, the dog with rank breath, the dog I received on my ninth birthday, the dog who was an avid talker, the dog who hunted squirrels, birds, and "buggies", the dog who had a sense of humor, the dog who would "snap snap" when she didn't get her way, the dog who aimlessly wandered, and the dog who provided unconditional love, support, and company without fail.

The list is boundless. I miss you, Pig, and I hope to see you once again.

Remember this guy? After two drawn out years, he's finally painted. I'm not quite satisfied with the piece, but I hope to return to him in the near future. There are too many projects I want to delve into at once!

How I spent my Fourth of July

My friend, Caleb, and I have decided to start a continuous project where we draw something every day based on a theme. We have yet to be successful. This past theme was "stylized realism". I was inspired by the comic book artist, Phil Noto:

Who better to draw than the infamous Bill Murray? He plays Walt Bishop in the new Wes Anderson film Moonrise Kingdom. If you haven't seen it yet, go now. 

Just a few more adjustments, and Walt will be complete!

As you can probably tell, it's been a while since I've last updated.  Last semester buried me in school work, but I managed to survive with the help of friends. 

This semester I plan to start a pet photography business in College Station.  It only made sense to do so - I had been taking pictures for AGS (Aggie Guide-dogs and Service-dogs) for the past three years, I take a lot of animal pictures, and of course, I enjoy it.  I needed some practice, so I decided to ask my old friend, Christina, if I could take pictures of her new Siberian Husky puppy, Astro.  We went to our elementary school for the shoot.

Astro's personality was apparent from the start - even at 7 weeks old.  He's independent, stubborn, and curious.  He gave me a good fight to snag pictures of him.  I do not expect puppies to have a long attention span, so I had to be exceedingly patient with him (as he with me).  The playground was his stage, and he performed brilliantly.
