First Animation!

I learned how to make GIF animations a while back, but with photo files. It recently dawned on me that I could do the same with illustrated files. Since I’ve been so into creating vector illustrations lately, I decided to try animating some of them. This was my first shot at it, and I have to say, it’s pretty exciting to see it in action! I think this created a bit of a monster, as I think I am going to be working on a lot of these from now on — endless possibilities! Totally addicting and mesmerizing to watch.

The Iconic Mickey Pop

I have always seen food as art, so when I start sketching something, it always ends up being food-based. I’ve recently been really into sketching up little vector illustrations as a hobby and one of the first things that came to mind were these iconic and adorable Mickey Mouse ice cream pops that can only be found in Disney. It’s funny how there are so many iconic food items in Disney, including the notoriuos turkey leg, the pineapple Dole Whip, the Mickey shaped Rice Krispie treats, and of course, these little guys. I loved both color combos so included both!
