Daily inspiration time over coffee. Today on Motionographer, I watched a projection dance experiment created by Chelsea Jones.
It’s always fun to see an artist set up and play with limitations. She choreographed this as one shot and the camera never moves.
She dances with her intense, playful motion graphics and the colors and gymnastics represent the different feelings in the lyrics. Her moves convey the pain of the song, but it’s clear that miss Jones is having fun.

She posted her creative making of video. It’s delightful.

About this time last year I started taking some classes on Skillshare. I love it. I’ve learned new writing and design skills, next I might take on the art of pickling.
Meet Serafin, a new character I started playing with after taking Matt Kaufenberg’s Character Illustration Class.
We were to develop a Pirate Character from sketch to final artwork using Photoshop and Illustrator. The first step was collecting inspiration images on Pinterest. I love anything that requires “working” on Pinterest.
I like my character. She wears a tank top (none of this seashell-bra nonsense) and a belt to keep her sweet little dagger.
I took this class, uh, last June. Cringe. It’s true, my pirate mermaid remains a sketch because I still haven’t had a chance to finish her. The shame I feel is overwhelming, but that’s what’s fantastic about Skillshare. I can be ashamed from the safety of my home studio and finish my character whenever I get around to it. It’s not a big deal. You can work at your own pace and you get feedback from your teacher and fellow students.
AND look how cute she is! I see so much potential for her in the future, as a print or maybe even a short film.
Anyway, Skillshare is super fun. Classes are only $20, sometimes they email with discounts, which is even more fun.
On the 5th of January of 2012, Fabricio Lima turned 30. After feeling weird and lost, as we all do on our 30th birthdays, he made a list of 30 things he knew about himself so far. Then he created a GIF animation for each one of them.
Joy and I turned 30 at 10:00 and 10:01 on January 9th, 2013, but all we did was high five, have some drinks and move on. I find Fabricio’s GIF animations to be a much more productive alternative.
Fabricio is a designer/director from São Paulo who also writes and contributes with Motionographer.

ArtBridge is an NYC-based nonprofit organization that transforms unused urban spaces into large-scale canvases for emerging artists, connecting them to the public. Banner art is usually hung on construction scaffolding, but for ArtBridge’s first time outside NYC, artwork was displayed on the Greenkill Avenue Bridge in Kingston, NY.
Two large artworks were chosen from local (female!) artists Emily Gui and Adie Russell, each piece now adorns either side of the bridge. Gui’s work “Moon Phases” and Russell’s “Wide/way” (digital composite of vintage postcards) were picked out of nearly 100 submissions. Yeah, girl power!
It really brightens up the streets of Midtown and leaves everyone in the best mood. Their art will remain for six months until the fall when the exhibition material will be taken down and made into tote bags. More about Gui and Russell here.
Joy and I were excited about ArtBridge coming to Kingston, so we drew a fantastical representation of the town for our submission. Obviously the design was not one of the big winners, but we wanted to share it with you anyway.

Yulie Cho is a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. She is majoring in Integrated Product Design, but loves animation. She’s taking a Computer Animation course and for one of her projects was assigned to interview professionals in the business. She contacted us.
I always giggle to myself when people call me a professional, which is silly because hell yes, we’re pros — but it’s just that I so vividly remember being in college with an assignment to interview a professional in the business. Like it was yesterday. But that was almost 7 years ago so get over it, Noelle. You’re a grown up.

James Buran described himself as an executive daydreamer. Until now! His first independent animated film, completed in just 2.5 weeks, launched today. Perfect for this dreary Monday morning before the election.
A guy who had his story, James dove into production. After a couple of weeks, he created art. Something that does what it’s meant to do – to make people feel. To think. But he was careful not to allow thinking to get in the way of thought. Wink. His unconfined hand-drawn technique and slaphappy tone adds excellent contrast to the film’s topic.
Nobody is the right choice, because Nobody bakes apple pie better than mom and Nobody can take a joke.
For more info and entertainment, the commercial motion design work built by James lives here.
