I’m working on improving my After Effects skills! Take a look at my first attempt at using the fancy Rotobrush tool.

Nobody gets between Angelenos and their love love hate relationship with their cars.
I made myself a new desktop background with an adorable picture of my little sister in Hawaii. Perfect for brightening the impending finals week stress!
Another little graphic for The Daily Muse. Floral springyness all around!
