New Orleans

IMG_1460My mom’s side of the family took a trip to New Orleans over winter break to visit my family. It was really rainy (everything you would imagine for vacation weather ) anyways we were at my grandma’s apartment and let me tell you it was so high up it’s scary! Well Zahzi my sister pointed out this huge building it was so tall we couldn’t see the top of it and I thought it would be a nice picture and so here it is!

Happy Ballet

Nutcracker

I was teaching Mabel some Photoshop techniques today and we ended up collaborating on a cool ballet collage. She learned a lot, and most of this image was created with her choices, she was able to exploit some of my skills to make it happen, but learned many herself that took me years to get to!

Beauty and the Beats 2013

 

2013beauty&beasta2013beauty&beastbLast year Mabel and I made a bunch of fairy tale comics together. I thought it would be fun to do the same ones once every tear with Mabel to see the changes as we go on. (For as long as she wants to do them anyway.) So this is Beauty and the Beast because this is the one we did first last time.Coming up next is Cinderella.

A Tornado

Mabel wanted to draw some frames because of seeing me draw some frames up for a comic version of an interview I conducted with her. She drew one frame and then proceeded to “action draw” while narrating. She was drawing the tornado from the Wizard of Oz and playing the roles of the characters involved. When I asked her what she wanted to name this she said, “Tornado I guess.”
