• Drawn Together Animation Festival

    Drawn Together Animation Festival

    I have been working with the delightful duo Overture (Jason and Aya Brown) to curate an evening of animated short films at Amherst Cinema, a non-profit art house theater in Amherst, MA. 

    You can find the Facebook event here, and more information below: 

    Curated by Valley-based animators Jason and Aya Brown (Overture) and Jo Dery, DRAWN TOGETHER PROGRAM 1: EXPERIMENTATION AND CHARACTER offers independent shorts that highlight experimentation with character – both in animation technique and in representation. Works have been chosen that challenge the tradition of character animation, as well as the conventional role of “character” in narrative. 

    Guest animator Jake Fried, whose films have shown at the Tate Modern, the Sundance Film Festival and Adult Swim, will also join us! Works by artists include: Overture, Jake Fried, Jo Dery, Marc and Emma, Lorelei Pepi, Lei Lei, David Lewandowski, Amy Lockhart, Lori Damioano, Chintis Lundgren, Peter Millard, Fabio Tonetto, and Noriko Okaku. Plus: Jo Dery and Overture will share teasers of new animations they are currently working on.

    I designed this T-shirt for the podcast Love + Radio, inspired by images from some of creator Nick Van Der Kolk's favorite L + R stories. You can buy one here! Go Radiotopia!

    Paper cutting with Andrea Dezsö

    I recently took a paper cutting workshop with the artist Andrea Dezsö. Above is a paper diorama, titled "Do not question what tickles your toes," which I created during the week-long class. It measures 24" x 24" x 24".
