Welcome!
I'm a student at CSUF. Currently, a Production Intern at Titmouse on "China, IL" and previously a Post Production intern at Warner Bros. TV and Nickelodeon Animation Studio. ENTJ. Made from a collection of at least 6 different ethnicities.
I believe that hoodies are the capes of the future and ties address class.

Working at Warner Bros. TV in Post Production was an incredible journey. Between the adventures on the lot exploring open sets, driving the golf cart with a mission to accomplish, and traveling to other studio lots there wasn’t a much of a dull day. The people I worked under were very lively and kept the day filled with joy and humor whether it was calling each other different names (some nicknames), giving sassy comments, or talking about various food/snack/desert places to visit. I’m so glad to have my last summer (in school) at their offices. They were able to schedule a couple amazing visits to other areas of Warner Bros. One of the visit was with their production Rizzoli and Isles where the the other post production intern and I were taken around the Paramount Studios lot where they have their production offices, sets, post production, and mixing at. We got to sit in on a mixing session at Technicolor, discuss a scene with their longest time editor of the show on how he should go about editing with the material he has, ate lunch from the production offices, took a tour of the studio lot and sets, then went for color correction at a location off the lot. The following day we would meet up at Universal to go through an online session and see what they  do for credits and some final checks before delivery. Another schedule opportunity was the time I visited the Warner Bros. Ranch (another lot) to visit the animation department where I would end up meeting some people who have been working there for 50 years. They all had unique stories how they started in animation. It was spectacular.

A side story while visiting Universal Studios: When I arrived and was about to enter the Quality Control House, I heard my name from the background. Turned out to be a previous intern I worked with at Nickelodeon! Really slim odds he would be on his runner activity to only spot me for the short moment I was outside. 

Now that my adventures of Warner Bros. and their enormous studio lot has come to a close, I have returned to school. I was able to gain an internship opportunity before around the beginning at a place called K Entertainment to do coverage. Within the same day I gave my confirmation to K Entertainment, Titmouse contacted me for an interview. I was torn between the two and the opportunities I had. After the process of an interview and a few days of waiting they offered me the opportunity to be their intern. Originally, they sought out for me to work on Moonbeam City, but the production was filled, but now I’m on another fun production which I’m excited to be a part of.

So, for my final fall semester in college, I will be an intern at Titmouse Animation Studio working on China, IL!

My time at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio ended roughly a month ago and I had a wonderful time there. I met so many wonderful friends and created long lasting friendships which I remain in contact with. Many of us have parted ways and are on to new adventures. A couple were hired, some still have school, and others had graduation and/or new job opportunities on the horizon. Overall, it was a spectacular experience and would do it again if I could. I may post some pictures to share my experience there. 

Recent great news: As of two days ago (June 11, 2014), I am officially a Post Production Intern at Warner Bros. TV.

I was playing summer by ear and one day discovered Warner Bros. TV was looking for a student interested in Post Production. I had to apply. Within four days, I heard from them and got an interview. Everyone was very nice and walked me through the stuff I should know about the department. As for the interview with the hiring manager, it lasted about five minutes. Although short in itself, we had talked quickly and tried to hit main points with haste. Leaving the studio, I pondered about what someone could say if they only had a sentence to express their interest in something. It certainly felt like I was pitching myself (but I guess that’s what an interview is in a nutshell, isn’t it?).

I saw that the solicitation cover for the third Korra Dark Horse art book is up on Amazon’s pre-order now. That was an earlier work-in-progress version, and this one above is slightly different, and if history is any indicator I will still be tweaking it up until Dark Horse rips it out of my hands at the absolute last second. The background design is an update by Angela Sung of an old ATLA one by Ricardo Delgado. Fred Stewart did an absolutely exquisite job painting it––probably one of my top 5 favorite background paintings of his on Korra. Korra was drawn and colored by me. The Book 2 art book will be released on September 16, 2014, and the Book 3 art book, which we are working on right now, will come out on January 20, 2015.

Pitched a concept for a short at Nickelodeon today. I was a bit of a nervous since this would be the first time I actually pitch to a studio and that my materials for the pitch weren’t finalized until nearly 15 minutes before my scheduled time. Now that it is out of the way, I feel more confident about potentially pitching ideas in the future. I would recommend people to attempt it once. The Nickelodeon Animated Shorts Program is always looking for people to give them great ideas so they can work by their side to make their idea come to fruition.

With January now at a close, I look onward to what possibilities this year has to offer. The first two weeks of another semester has passed and I’m already handling plenty of work and projects that require plenty of attention. Even though I’m a bit intimidated from the workload, I’m actually quite positive. There’s so much information that I’ve wanted to learn or dig deeper into. I have this feeling that this semester may be one of my toughest yet or overall in my major. Soon, I’ll be traveling between the university and Nickelodeon Animation Studios during the weeks as I work my way into the animation industry. 
In other news, my great aunt and great uncle bought me an excellent gift - an art tablet! Those two were sneaky when they heard me speak about a particular model and rushed to purchase it on the internet. They completely planned it so they had a gift for me when the holidays came around. I have to give them credit for pulling that off. There hasn’t been too much time to mess with it, but I like to pick it up from time to time and use it as a mouse to navigate. Probably soon I’ll find some time to try out some new techniques in some art programs. Here’s a quick doodle I did of myself with flat colors on it. Clearly, a work in progress. 
Anyway, I’m excited that 2014 has begun. This year has me very hopeful of what there is to come in my future and life. Happy New Year, everyone!

Studio Ghibli just announced its first ever TV series, and even more exciting it’s an adaptation of a book by Astrid Lindgren. “Sanzoku no Musume Ronja”, or “Ronja the Robber’s Daughter”, will be aired in Japan starting on August 31. It is a coproduction with 3DCG studio Polygon Pictures (known for animating some of Ghost in the Shell, among others), to be directed by Goro Miyazaki. More details are forthcoming.
The story is of a little girl named Ronja, the daughter of a colourful robber chieftain who lives in a castle high on a rock in a dark pine forest. She gets to know the creatures of the forest, meets another kid like herself, and questions her father’s life of robbery.
It will be interesting to see the new route Studio Ghibli takes now that it is making TV animes.

If you’ve ever been stumped on what to draw, this is a fun little web application.
The webpage is filled with lots of drawing ideas that you can randomize - so you’ll never have the excuse that “you don’t know what to draw”.
The page also features a submit area, where you can submit your own ideas.
At the time of posting, there are only a few ideas - but I’m sure that will increase if this gets spread on tumblr.
