Merry Sandy Christmas!

For all of you out there who stumble upon this blog, I hope you find the deep, deep depths of joy and love in your New Year. Merry Christmas from me and the sandy fish!

This animation was made with recycled and reclaimed footage from the past year of sandy animation.

Women of Vision - Christmas Animation

I love sharing advent animation, but it's particularly exciting to share some of my own work! I've just finished an animated Christmas card for Women of Vision. You may remember some of my past cards for them. They are always up for something artsy and it's a project I look forward to every year.

Please pass this on to anyone in need of a little Christmas cheer!

Women of Vision  is an organization of women helping women. They advocate for oppressed women and children around the world. I'm always excited to support them through my animation. Find out more at

Advent Animation 2012

It's that time of year again! In eager anticipation and preparation for Christmas, I have revived my #adventanimation tag on twitter  Each day I"m sharing a new holiday animation - some are quirky, some are sweet, some are funny, some are visually stunning. Here's a taste of a few of them. If you like these, just follow me over to twitter!

My favorite, thus far is Marzipan Reindeer from emerging artist Holly and the Wolf. The weird and wild animation is by Tony Johnson.

I also love these pohutukawa loops made by David Montgomery. The pohutukawa trees are native to New Zealand. They bloom with red flowers at Christmas, in the midst of the southern summer. These abstractions of the blooms are just stunning.

Anyone who's had a bit too much Gl├╝wein while strolling the Weihnachtsmarkt will relate to this little piece from MOKOST

And, one of my favorite ones from last year - the singing hedgehogs - a youtube extravaganza. Watch out! This one will timesuck the rest of your day away!

More awesome advent animation in the days to come. Head over to twitter to get the latest!
