I took this one earlier in the month when there were still plenty of wildflowers in bloom. I'm pretty proud of this one. It took a few tries to get it just right.

Here's a preview for a short stop motion animation film by my teacher Eric Fonseca. Beautiful work. I've also embedded a stop-motion panel discussion of his films at the 2010 O-Conn Anime Convention.
By the way, I finally got a chance to animate this past Monday. I was nervous at first because quit honestly I didn't want it to go wrong so I hesitated a bit. Thanks to Mr. Fonseca's advice to simply jump in with child-like abandon, I just went for it and am pleased so far with my first try at this wonderful art form. There's still a lot more to do though. Lots! Animation is kind of like geologic time in that it takes awhile to get something finished.
Below is a link to an interview with Eric Fonseca from the Missions Unknown website.
