My Last Painting Project in OCADU will be about Rebirth

My last painting project in OCAD U before graduating from my BFA program will address the concept of rebirth same as many of my other projects. I decided to make it an evolution of the below illustration that I did for Good News Toronto newspaper for their September 2008 issues, as can be seen below. You can find the full copy of that issue of the Newspaper in this link: http://www.goodnewstoronto.ca/pdf/September2008.pdf

The article for which I made this illustration, is on page 8, “Personal Story” by Jennifer Hicks. I also have another illustration in that issue in page 2.

Making a Cartoon Character from My Childhood Photo!

I needed to create a cartoon character to start working on some new ideas and kick off drafts of some educational animations. It occurred to me to create a cartoon character of my own childhood image and animate it as the story character! here you see the after cartooning and original photo before photoshop of me as a kid taken from a family photo! the other kidos in the original image are my older sister and baby cousin! I might change the dress colour to something else later to move away from the stereotyped pink for girls….
