WHEWWW I haven’t posted in forever! My new job keeps me very busy, y’all. But I feel bad for neglecting this blog, and also I had a terrible date tonight, so I figured I’d salvage my night by drawing a rough for this year’s Halloween drawing. I think I like where this is going.
I’m thinking it’ll be a GIF, but what will be moving is gonna be a surprise (if I ever actually finish it)!
I want to end this post by saying that I love y’all, and life is great.
Anonymous asked: How old are you
28 on December 18 so start thinking about gifts now.
Ok that’s everything. I just realized that most people take screen grabs so they can tag the posts. I’m not used to this yet. I’m so sorry.
I love you all.
swimmer12345 asked: Is there anyway I can buy your artwork of the cat? It is so awesome!
I don’t have any hard copies of it, but I guess you could skin metal-thimble if they ended up getting that tattoo…
Actually please don’t. That would be awful.
Anonymous asked: Do you do request? I just found this blog so idk obviously :p
I would love to but I can barely update this thing on my own. When I’m finally an adult maybe I’ll take requests. Then I’ll get a cat.

fablepaint asked: Hey Carder! It's Erin, from USC. I was a year under you I think. You were friends with Sarah Ann? Anyway, I'm looking for some advice on applying to Disney TV animation and was wondering if you could help me tailor my portfolio to match what they might be looking for. If not, it's nice saying hi. I've been following your tumblr for a bit and I've been liking all the really expressive work you've been doing. Ciao!
Hey Erin! As far as portfolios go - I have no idea what is required of one. I got my job because I started out as a PA and worked in production until I had enough connections to nab a test from a friend who was already familiar with my art.
As far as I can tell, blogs are the wave of the future and that’s how a lot of people get discovered. I sent a lot of tests out to people who had caught the showrunner’s eye just by having a solid internet presence. I guess my advice to you is to keep updating your blog and try and work any connections you have.
But I’ll be totally real with you - I’m not the person to ask because I’m still totally new to this game and as far as I know I’ll never work in the industry again once this job is over.
It’s a fairy tale!
