Capilano Animation, the first Month!

Greetings, friends! It has been entirely too long. Between moving to a big city, a new country, and starting an intense full time classical animation program, I've not had much time to dilly-dally (code for "blog"). Instead, I've been becoming accustomed to the soul-vacuuming rain of Vancouver and started to develop lung, back, and eye problems due to being continuously bent over a desk working on drawings ten inches from my face. Basically, I'm in love.

There is so much to tell, so much to talk about. In fact, there's so much that it is in fact TOO much to blog about. As well as I happen to be murderously refusing myself sleep at the moment to pump out a blogpost lest the months between iterations become years.

The Commercial Animation program at Capilano has been really good so far. It focuses on deeply understanding the core technical aspects of classical animation and integrating this understanding with solid and continuing advances in drawing. What I put on this blog for the next approximately two years will be primarily from work at Capilano. As such, this will include assignments and tests. I want to use these to show my friends and family my development as an artist and animator. Also, I want to make these available for the time being in the online space to allow future and other present animation students the chance to get even more perspective on animation education in the world. Your comments, feedback, and critique are always welcome.

With that, I'm posting some of my life drawings from class to this post. I hope you enjoy them. Soon I will post some of my actual animation tests and assignments.
