This film is heavily inspired by my time working in a 24/7 cafe last summer. Amongst the typical trials of graveyard restaurant life, I was dealing with some sticky home situations, the passing of my grandma, and some other events that really overwhelmed me.  Upon returning to school, I wanted to make something really positive.  There was this point where I realized that you’re never alone in pain, and knowing that other people are dealing with heavy things really helped me.  It by no means solved my own issues, but there’s this sort of silent empathy that we can all take part in. -n

we had a cool burlesque dancer model today in life drawing! she had awesome costumes. i drew these in pen and then scanned ‘em and then colored in them in photoshop.

hello kind people of the internet,

in recent weeks I have received a lot of lovely new followers thanks in part to the promotion of some very talented and cute friends of mine.  I would just like to thank you all for following this gooky blog of mine and saying nice nice things! I just want to make it clear that 95% of the time I don’t know what I’m doing but am thankful for the kind support of people who are far more talented and cool than I am.  They are the ones that inspire me to keep making things and trying harder and working my buns off.  I just wanted to make a silly text post to remind you all to stay inspired! and be healthy! pet dogs! stay positive! work hard! and be fearless! cus its the way to get better! and dont be afraid to reach out to the people who inspire you and ask questions. learning and growing is so exciting and i always feel 12 years old in my head, but we are all baby spuds trying to make things in this weird world.

ok bye now, I’ll stop geeking on your feeds
