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. I’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!
