Ok, so a week or two was a few months ago. I admit that I over estimated my ability to project when I would have a video to share. I am a little amused with myself. Animation studios are not generally a one person operation. I am plodding along, trying my best to tell the story in a visually artistic way. I do not intend to make time my master. Art is more important. It is very important to make the first episodes something that draws people to keep watching. I want everyone to look forward to the next video.

I also have several paintings and and a painting restoration in the works. I will be posting progress on these projects at my FB studio page. Click the facebook link above to see that. While you are there, please like my page so that you can be alerted to my future posts.

I have planted my seeds and have been preparing my garden for all of the vegetables I have planned to grow this year. I should have lima, dragon tongue and purple bush beans in the next few weeks. I have lettuces and zucchini and patty pan squashes started too. I hope that the stink bugs don't get the squashes like they did last year.

It has been an interesting several weeks. The alternator on the truck seized up, the washer would not spin and worst of all, with all the programs that I downloaded to do my animation project my computer would not function. My hard drive was big enough to download the programs, but there was no room to actually run them! Ralph Sanders fixed the truck. I fixed the washer with the help of a YouTube video. My aunt Barbara came to the rescue with the computer that I needed. It took me a little more than a week to set up the new computer. I am now ready to get back to work. I am looking forward to releasing my first episode in a week or two. Yay!

Although I will readily admit that learning to animate has been and continues to be a challenge, I want to encourage anyone that would like to learn. I have found a lot of help on youtube. Here is the play list of instructional videos that I have compiled to further my own education.


Hello and welcome to  my website. I hope that  you enjoy following what I am doing in the studio. Usually, I have many projects going on at all times. I love to try new things and learning how to use mediums I have never implemented before. Recently, I have been working in a medium that I have been interested in since I was a child. I had always enjoyed animated films and series. A friend asked me to illustrate a book that his wife had written. When I was creating the story board I had a dream. The characters were moving. The project was telling me that this was not a book. It was a film. As if making this film was not already a big bite that I was likely to have a hard time chewing, I had a story growing in my head that I felt would make a good series. Now I had to learn how to make my visions happen.

I opted for the cut paper animation process and below I have posted some cells.
