Truth be told, cooking is not on my list of favorite life activities. PLAYING with food...now that's more my jam! Or in this case...my soup? I made this soup surprise last year with the leftover ingredients from my work with @chefsfeed. So much fun to animate for that project...I'll be sharing more clips over the next few days.
It's November and I'm in the mood to light up some candles and snuggle under a blanket for the rest of the year, you know what I mean? Now that the season is getting darker and colder, I'm trying to spend more time slowing down and reflecting. ⠀ ⠀ I made this little chillout video a few months ago while in between projects. You can see the full six minutes of peaceful nothingness on the IGTV link in my profile. 😌😴⠀ ⠀ ⠀
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...for voting! Especially if you're in sunny California where we've made it pretty easy to do. Bring your dogs, bring your babies (lots of voting baby selfies today), bring your butts! Get outside and vote!
Hey, happy Halloween, but also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AD-ROCK of the Beastie Boys (@beastieboysbook)!!! ⠀ ⠀ Throwback to some prototype clay puppets I made for my friend, Mike Cantor, who has been creating an animated remake of the Shake Your Rump music video. Ad-Rock is the one in the green striped shirt, in case you didn't know 😄. Mike is close to finishing his passion project! You can check out his progress and cheer him on at @hotvelcroaction.
I would love have my own slightly demented home lifestyle show, like an oddball Martha Stewart. Check out my stories today, where I’ve resurrected an old tutorial about how to use lemons to clean your microwave. 🍋🍋🍋⠀ ⠀
It’s World Pasta Day, so I’m celebrating with this delicious plate of spooketti and eyeballs. 👁👻👁⠀ ⠀ Thanks to my fave collab buddies @emilyras for the lettering animation and Michael V. Flores for the slimey spooketti music and sound!#worldpastaday
I used to think those tombstone “over the hill” birthday cards were super cheesy, but the more my bones creak and the floppier my skin gets I realize, OH...IT ME??? That’s ok though, because I’m also happy to grow wiser and care less about the little things. Here’s to celebrating confidence gained from life experience and also becoming less relevant in the eyes of advertisers! 💀🎉⠀
N is for "nice"...and "nasty". ✨⠀ ⠀ I resurrected this piece I made for #36daysoftype. This time I commissioned my brilliant audio partner, Michael V. Flores to add music and sound, and I love how it turned out. Thank you, Michael for making my animation even more disgusting than it already was 💝.
Instantly creep-ify your selfies by slapping these clay eyes GIF stickers on your face! Or stick em on old family photos as I have done here (Hi, Gramma!). ⠀ ⠀ Search "headexplodie" in IG stories or snapchat 👁👁👁👁👁👁👁👁👁👁👁👁
Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. The goal is to raise awareness of mental health issues and encourage support for mental health care, something I deeply believe in. ⠀ ⠀ I grew up surrounded by negative attitudes about mental health/illness. This made it especially hard for me to realize that I was personally struggling with depression and anxiety years ago. In retrospect, I was really lucky because I was helped out by my local Planned Parenthood clinic and they set me up with affordable therapy. So began my journey to better health for my brain and my soul. ⠀ ⠀ Awareness is important because there is still much to be learned about what exactly mental health is. People are quick to judge what's this or that and what you should do about it. What's worse is the political and economic system that many of us live in does NOT care about your mental health. ⠀ ⠀ All we really have right now is each other. What'd I'd encourage on this day, and ideally everyday, is awareness, patience, and compassion for those of us who might be having a hard time with mental health 💙. ⠀ #mentalhealthawarenessweek ⠀
