Original entry from Wednesday: Some weeks ago, I was working on a soft redesign of the Mary L. Tale character (aka Timba Tale) out of our Childwood project... her hair turned btw from red to green due to some story changes.

BTW, here's a recent pic of my fellow 2D animation class... lots of talent here:


  1. i love what you do and how you do it! Stunnin as always

  2. haha nice, enough of the projects give me a book to buy =D
