Copper and Biscuit are becoming buddies, though that often means Biscuit awkwardly standing and laying on top of Copper! But, thankfully Copper has mostly given up on the idea of getting rid of the annoying new addition. #biscuitthepuppy #copperthedog #puppiesofinstagram #minibernedoodle #bernedoodle #cockalier

并且,最后但并非最不重要的,我想庆祝@ccadedu优秀的高级动画,悉尼大风。 “‘双核’[我的顶峰电影]是我曾经独自动画的最长的电影。这也是我所做过的最个人的电影。它是关于一个字符意识到,尽管他们可以得到的东西在自己的就好做了,工作起来造成的结果他们从不单独实现的可能性。 并且,我的第二件是我创造做广告今年(不幸的是取消)CCAD春天24小时动画竞赛,培训活动我3年前创立基于对学生的国际24小时动画大赛的标志。 24小时一直是我在CCAD时间的很大一部分,我很高兴今年的品牌是如何横空出世,我想这可能是一个好地方分享吧!” @sidneygale #ccadcreateaway #myccad

For my thesis, I decided to imagine what Hollywood would look like if it was inclusive. Creature... features fellow students Roy Davila and Taylor Jackson. Work 2: Reborn: A Body Positivity Project.
