Heath Ledger/The Joker.

Heath Ledger. What a guy. Hands down, best actor in history because of his role in The Dark Knight (which majorly pwns 2008). I seriously can't get over this movie. I'm beyond obsessed with it. It's The Joker! I will be The Joker for Halloween as well, but anyway, this is kind of stiff, but I wanted it to mirror his stiff movement.

Circus: 5 Cents!

I am obsessed with the circus. Wait, let me rephrase that, I'm obsessed with OLD circuses and the idea of the circus. Last time I went to the circus, it was a Shriner's circus and I was 12. I also rode the Tilt-A-Whirl 13 times and threw up after, but back to the circus. I think clowns are bizarre and I find it interesting that people are afraid of them. My sister doesn't like clowns. I wanted to play with the idea that this clown is creepy and not exactly trustworthy even though it's selling goodies to people and children. I also messed with clipping masks and texture and that was fun. On a side note that kind of relates to clowns, but not really, I enjoy Tod Browning's FREAKS. It's a great black and white movie about real life freaks from 1932. Watch it!

My Relationship With Wall-E.

I can barely put into words the awe I experienced when I saw Pixar's Wall-E. There was nothing more adorable than this little robot and the fact that he exhibited so much emotion. The movie itself was fantastic (including the 20 minutes without dialogue and only sound effects) and I got to see it on someone else's dime. I suggest everyone see this movie. It has my heart. Beware, it's a tear-jerker

I'm Back From NYC!

Well I'm back in Michigan and I can't say I'm happy about it. The conference was great. I met a lot of really cool people (you'll be hearing from me soon, guys!) and I had a good time. I got to see fireworks and eat pizza, but I didn't find Ben Bailey or his cash cab. There's always next time.
