Things have been a little quiet in my studio for the last few months because we welcomed a sweet baby girl into our lives this spring, so I spent the summer soaking in new baby snuggles! But I'm back into my new groove in the studio, working on a few client projects and trying to getting back into some personal work. This was a fun little piece I put together after being inspired by the Motion Commotion animation screening at ICON10 in Detroit this past summer. Iโ€™ve long been interested in seeing my work in motion, so finally carved out some time to take a stab at it. The illustration was painted in gouache, animated in Photoshop, and inspired by how much I have grown as a person and an artist since becoming a mom!
