New Blog

Moving over my blog to my website, monamation.com. Blogger's been great, but the spammers haven't been. I'll still have this up for a while though!

Vanilla Skates

Did a little logo animation for Vanilla Skates recently, with like a few hours turnaround. I love getting quick little projects like this; keep me on my toes! It was my first time using certain simple lighting effects in After Effects, though I think the colored version was a lot cooler (they wanted a greyscale one instead). Here is the Vanilla Skates 2014 promo video :)

Hitting the Slopes

Friend Drake is heading home to Colorado and skiing!
My friend Drake is heading home to Colorado soon, with her new skis! This is a doodle I did with her at our favorite cafe in my area, KC's Crepes Cafe, where they provide a little notebook for doodling! I took a photo of it and colored it in quickly in Photoshop when I got home. We used to go to that cafe all the time in high school, and still enjoy grabbing boba drinks and crepes when she's in town. Basically, I need to visit her soon and take advantage of the Colorado snow (because California is not having much at all this season!)

First Doodle

First doodle of 2014
Happy New Year! My first doodle of 2014. Obviously terrible and disproportionate but it was the first thing I drew and I wanted to post it regardless of how it turned out. Drew it on the back of a receipt at the breakfast place my boyfriend, best friend, and I went to this morning after a fun night out. We even took a photo trying to copy the doodle I did yesterday! I think the photo is better than the doodle for sure! 

Real life of the doodle I drew yesterday

Excited to see what 2014 has in store!
