rapunzel heads

I was cleaning my studio last weekend (it was extremely overdue) and I found these in a box in a pile of other drawings!  They are from my Disney internship days, when I did a little bit of work on Rapunzel (it was still called Rapunzel instead of Tangled then...that's how long ago it was).  Some (ok, MANY...alright MOST) of these look kinda oofy to me now, but they are an example of what character design is all about: just messing around with shapes.  Kinda fun still!

 These, like all the work that I did at Disney, only exist on paper.  The hard drive I had saved my work on crashed forever go and I have yet to get around to getting the data recovered.  WHO KNOWS what other priceless gems are hidden away in the deep recesses of my ancient hard drive???

captain scratchy beard

Hey, so, I graduated from CalArts quite a while ago, with a degree and everything, but somehow I never got around to posting my films online.  Booooooo on me.  I know.  It's especially terrible because SO MUCH of your life in the Character Animation department at CalArts is spent on somehow, some way, producing a cartoon.  All by yourself.  It's an absolute miracle these things get made at all.  They're hard to do!!

So today, after almost 6 years of sitting on the server at CalArts not being seen by much of anyone, I finally got this thing up on Vimeo!  (I needed help from one of my students to make this happen. Learning never ends, people!)

So here it is, my fourth year film.

Captain Scratchy Beard from brigette b on Vimeo.

Yes, I made cartoons before I made books!  And the girl in my cartoon is reading a book.  How's that for foreshadowing.

Oh yes, by the by:

I get a lot of e-mails from folks (students, mostly) with a lot of questions about a lot of things. Mostly art things.
I'm going to try and do a master "frequently asked questions" post soon, so if there's anything, anything, ANYTHING you wanna ask, please feel free!
You can ask in the comments or e-mail me:
If you've already e-mailed me, please don't feel bad!  I just get too many to answer individually, and lots of them are the same questions over and over, so it'll be better for everybody in the end if I can just get them all answered at once.
Cool?  Cool.
