Joy and I were delighted to see Leonardo DeLuzio’s short film Apt. 5A at the SoDak Animation Festival last fall. I liked it so much that I referred him to the Charleston International Film Festival to submit this year.
The fun thing about being an artist is you can draw pictures. Obviously. But you’re not just limited to drawing pictures to combat boredom or even to get paid. You can draw people Christmas gifts. You can make get well cards and Thank You cards.
This is the Thank You card Leonardo sent over after he was accepted to Charleston. Those are his characters from Apt. 5A with our girls. Absolutely love this.
A few weeks ago, my husband Pat found this hilarious novelty account on Reddit, UsernameFanfic, who writes fan fiction based on your Reddit username. I begged UsernameFanfic to do one for our name, twinsareweird, with the promise that I’d create a little comic to accompany it. I LOVED the story and had so much fun coming up with the artwork for it. Here it is:
I used the sketches for my Sketchbook Project 2012 submission and just shipped that little guy off to go on tour. Every sketchbook is given a theme and my theme was called, “The Worst Story Ever Told.” This is NOT at all how I feel about this story, but it did make me giggle. It kind of goes along with the subject matter.
