Drawing the Figure
Prior to this one-minute short, my characters only spoke with the aid of hand-lettered text. I wondered, if they could actually speak, what would they say? This is the answer. Drawing the Figure premiered at the Philadelphia Independents Animation Screening on March 4, 2017.

Seventeen Drawings of Tamiera

This is more of a conceptual piece than a cartoon. It premiered at The Plastic Club "Out of the Box" show on February 5, 2017 where it won 3rd Place.

Hanging in an art gallery on a flat screen TV, the video attempts to blend in with the neighboring art on the walls by remaining motionless. It gradually becomes clear to viewers that the figure is changing her pose every twenty seconds, mirroring a figure drawing session. Playing on a loop, the full version repeats every six minutes. This is the shorter Web version that holds each pose for eight seconds.

The title is a joke. It took closer to one hundred seventy drawings to complete. The seventeen poses were drawn directly into animation software TVPaint on a laptop during a figure drawing session at Hunted Line Studios with life model, Tamiera.
