The Sound of Advertisement

Experimented with video again! Contrasting sound and imagery and playing upon some of the silly connections I see in advertisements nowadays. 

This will also be looping at the Super Highway Exhibition space at USC! Yay

Taking an Intro to Animation Techniques class and this is my take on an Emily Dickinson poem. Some people found the ending a bit... well you'll see ;)

Stills from "T.V." Video Project


                                                      

I experimented with video and claymation and I thought it'd be nice to show some of the stills and close ups from the making of the set!

The best part about this project was seeing the little room come to life before I even started filming. I created this set to mirror my living room growing up as a kid and watching TV. I improvised on the materials to make the furniture: cardboard for the walls, door, and picture frame, cork for the plant, clay for the subject and kitten, etc.

More pictures and close ups...

"T.V." Video Project

video

Experimented with claymation in my Intro to Video class. It's the experience of watching t.v. and not noticing the time passing by... slowly forgetting about the other things in the room.

Plesh

Tried to see how far I could push the color and still call it "flesh". The hand on the left is pushing "zombie status".

Moonwalk

video
Dabbling in animation on Flipbook (ignore the watermark!)

First you have to know how to moonwalk before you animate it ;)
The song is "1901" by Phoenix

"Pillowed Feather" Sculpture

6'2" Tall

Pretty fun walking around campus carrying this around. How big was the bird you say? :P

More pictures and close ups...

"Incapacitated" Sculpture


The eyes are wires that I molded around light fixtures that I found. I liked the hollowness and protrusion of the shapes it made. 

More pictures and close ups...

Cerillas, Por Favor


17" x 14" color pencil

"Cerillas, por favor", matches please
I work in a small gift shop in a hotel. This man here is a regular. He doesn't buy anything though, just asks for matches. With the drawing I really pushed the color pencils to give the texture I wanted.

Nude sitting pose


Odd proportions makes for an interesting figure drawing sesh.
