Endless Zelda Celebration


The Zelda Celebration just continues! There is so much exploding on the web with the 25th birthday of The Legend of Zelda and I'm here to share it all!



First up, this epic scroll painting found on Geekologie.com.

Next, www.1up.com shares videos, music, game secrets and reviews, and everything else Zelda you can think of.

Of course, Hulu is also celebrating by posting the 13 episodes made for TV, which are supremely cheesy and addicting. Will Link ever get a kiss from Princess Zelda!?

So much good stuff. I wished to share drawings I have made over my many years in Zelda fan-dom, but all my books are in California *sigh*. Time to make new ones! In the mean time, enjoy these other favorite Zelda Fan images:

Madagascar, a Journey Diary

This film is so very inspiring! So many times I was like "woah".
No wonder it was nominated for an Oscar.

Link to the Past

Hulu is celebrating The Legend of Zelda's 25th birthday! It is showing all 13 episodes of the animated series started in 1989. As I watched I sketched a little. =P I certainly hope to have more energy to keep up my drawing and do some real stuff that I have in mind. Enjoy Zelda! I think now I'll go play the game.

Be Mine





Ah Another Valentine's Day, come and gone. Had grand plans for drawings but my day was filled with work and naps to keep this cold of mine from getting out of control. Between sneezing and animating I fantasized of all the lovely things I would really like to create today and instead found solace and comfort in counting my blessings and practicing gratitude. I am truly grateful for all the love that surrounds me, my wonderful friends, family, doggies, and squirrels. So today I'll share just a couple of things that make my heart happy, even in the darkest moments before dawn.

A Pot Luck Post

Lots to share, where to begin?

Found out today that my little film, "Squirrel Tale" is still making the rounds in the Festival Circuit, next hitting up the San Francisco International Children's Film Festival as part of WonderCon (sister to ComicCon) the first weekend in April 2011. This gets me excited to break out "Falling For You" and get it festival ready. Hopefully it will be hitting the circuit in 2012.

Now for some fun. My friend Gina posted this Space Unicorn video on my wall yesterday, and it made my day and I hope it makes yours too!


Super Bowl was fun, nice tushies in tight pants and also great ads. Though there was lots of animation, my two fav animated ads were Coke's dragon ad, and VW's racing beetle ad (and the adorable little Darth Vader! TO DIE!). VFX tho desceptively simple, ruled my world in the E-Trade Baby commercials.

So the winners are definitely Coke, VW, and ETrade.




Coming up! Valentine's Day. I promise to draw and bring music to the blog. =D This libra's got a lot of love to share!
