RUN!

I animated a firecracker running from its own lit fuse. I guess I was just feeling inspired having just blown a bunch of stuff up for the Fourth of July. God bless America. via GIPHY So my original idea was to make an eye blink. I thought it seemed cool, so I sketched...

Bombs Away

Bombs Away | An After Effects Project  As I was thinking of what I could design and then later animate, the idea came to me to draw a little bomb and have it explode. I didn’t realize there would be so much to learn as I got into the designing and animating...

Spit it Out

This is my animated GIF!  I loved the process of making this guy.   Honestly the idea just popped in my head and I had to make it.  Originally I planned to create an animated Gif of a rocket ship taking off, but there was something about the idea that didn’t...

I’m Your Fan

While working on this project, I wanted to create a looping GIF that was fun, simple, but also professional that exemplified my skills as a graphic designer as well as showcase what I can do with Adobe AfterEffects. In order to come up with the concept, I thought...

Easter Island Dance

It is high up on my bucket list to visit the Easter Island Heads. They are so fascinating to me! I mean really how in the world did they get there? Second, how did they find the materials to even build them? These are questions that remain a mystery to me. So I...

“Listening a Flower Grow”

  My looping gif is inspired in a song called “Escuchas Crecer una Flor” by Ekhymosis. I had a lot of technical problems but was able to create a nice looping gif. I wanted to create something that was inspirational an relaxing. In the process of...

BeePencil is Here!

First Sketches: I had this idea of making a bee pencil before, but didn’t really have the time to work deeper on this character. So, this project was the perfect time to work in my bee pencil and make her move. I worked on making different versions of the bee, to make...

To Think Is To Be Alive

Before I started my animation project, I knew that I wanted mine to be meaningful. I started thinking about issues that our society has and I came up with the lack of creativity. So often, people are not using their brains as much as they should because they are glued...

Landing On the Moon

For this project I had to create a vector image in Illustrator that would be imported into After Effects and made into a gif. I have never worked with After Effects before and so this project was pretty intimidating for me. My objectives were to make a gif that looped...

I lava animation

I tried my hand at some animation this last week. I’ll be honest, I was terrified and intimidated, but I did it and that’s all that matters. It was a four step process (Actually a kabillion steps, but this is a general outline): 1) sketching out the...

Spin Like a Butterfly

When we were asked to create an animation, the first thought that came to my mind was a spinning butterfly knife. I flip butterfly knives as a hobby, and I thought this would be a great concept for my animation. One of my objectives from the very beginning was to...

City Street

  Motion Graphics is really not easy, and it takes a lot of work especially if you are drawing everything yourself. That was definitely one of the biggest challenges that I had. To come up with something that would last 8 or 9 seconds, but still seem casual.  I...

Live, Laugh, Loop

I have never attempted an animation using graphics that I’ve created myself inside of After Effects. I have animated before with Adobe Premiere but that software is not intended for animation and making things look nice is difficult and requires a lot of...

Rotten to the Core

These stickers were a long time coming. I feel as though I go through quite a process when I design for myself. Everything I create helps me to become a better designer little by little.  I started out, as always with some sketching!   After sketching I wasn’t...

Cocky Doodle Doo

I wanted to do a a reverse engineer post on a sticker I found on Pinterest that was created by Joshua M. Smith on his Parody Series.This sticker comes from a Looney Tunes character named Henry Hawk, known for being a little guy with a big attitude and plenty of...

Ash Wednesday

To start I super enjoyed this project. I went in sketching knowing exactly what I wanted to do because since I the watch project I had been thinking about what I wanted to do. The faceless people with snakes. I think snakes are super interesting and they’re...

Drip, Drip, 2309

This was a very exciting project. Gig posters are so expressive and open that I had a great time thinking outside of the box to create something unique and intriguing. I started with allowing myself to get bored. From there I did a bunch of word association to get my...
