I changed my title.

Filling your dash with Animation, art and humorous (at least to me) things! Some mine, some reblogged.


Started my third year of college last week!!  Over this next year I’ll get to make my first student film, these are some drawings for possible story ideas.  After this I’m REALLY going to be pushing myself to do more digital work, I’ve been neglecting it so much lately haha D:

Character Design Process
Stop-Motion Animator and Illustrator Ben Whitehouse shares his design process in this short video. He explains:
“I made this video for a workshop to use as a quick example of my character design process. It was originally 37 minutes but sped up to save everyone from a slow boring death”


Some smallish sketchbook watercolour studies! The odd brownish clumps in the first image are what gold ink looks like scanned. Normally I take photos when I use gold ink, but I didn’t really feel up to it today.


Reblogging as a gif set.

You can see the animated video narrated by my son, Sawyer, on tumblr or facebook (whatever your preference is).



Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

(Full shoot will be shot in New York itself just in time for NYCC)

The Aftershocks

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Rebecca is amazing!

Believe me when I say, these are the BEST Muppet bloopers ever. Please, please WATCH. You get to watch Frank Oz’s sanity slowly slip away. Priceless.

“Hubba wah?! HUBBA HUBBA HUBBA WAH?! Hubba WAH?!?”

Literally the GREATEST THING I have ever seen! The fact that they stayed in character and kept puppeteering the whole time. I’M CRYING!

The fact that this video now has 8,000+ notes makes me so happy.
