Introducing Leyla & Pug :)

Hi everyone!

In case you were wondering, I've been hanging out at 180 New Montgomery in the Stop Motion Department alot!!  I surely do miss being able to go to the workshops, and hang out with all the Powell peeps. but I've been obsessing with this puppet I'm making, It's got me so inspired, I'm probably gonna  make a short film with it!

Introducing Leyla & Pug,
Wish me luck!

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In The Making Of Her Own Ship

Hi guys!

So during the spring semester, I had classes with Joko our amazing Advance Perspective teacher as well as drawing for illustrators with Anthony Christov. 
on the second half of the semester,I had the opportunity  to work on my own project.

Inspired by the book - The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In The Making Of Her Own Ship.
these are some of the design and ideas for a game that i hope to create one day!

Enjoy :)

Desiree says " super excited to develop more stuff, this semester :)!"

Fall Semester 2012 - Begins!

In efforts to try and make it to at least a few workshops this semester, I decided to drop into the fashion workshop at the new Polk building for the very first time :)

this one's just a random drawing of a guy in a subway :)

and for those who read the little iddy bitty details of my typing :)

I'm going to be at APE (Alternative Press Expo) this year!
 I'll be hanging out with my fellow friends Euna Kwon, Sunny Choi, and Mushk Risvi  at our  booth
 called Sailing sprouts!
(little sketch idea for my personal logo :D)

I've saved up a couple of sketches i really like that i won't be uploading here,
I did those during the summer and are quite dear to me, so I thought it just be exclusively for the  sketchbooks i'll be publishing for purchase at APE!

along with a couple of prints to trade or buy :D
I can't wait!

Also if you guys want to see anything in particular please drop a comment and let me know!

if your interested in going and don't really want to pay, you can volluenter! greet people at the door, usher people around make friends, and get free access to APE, what more could you ask for right ?

Desiree says" thanks for dropping by, i hope you all have a wonderful Fall, Cheers"
