A walk cycle featuring my Janitor character completed while pursuing my MFA. The Janitor character is still one of my favorite characters to use and I often dust her off to animate small scenes.  

2-D (2-dimensional) hand drawn (on paper), animation, has always been the most appealing to me because of how much more challenging it is to create a performance completely from scratch. As contemporary life becomes more and more intertwined in digital methods and means, I find that it becomes even more pertinent to maintain disciplines from our "analogue" roots, to enrich and deepen the creative process.
