I've been hemming and hawing for far too long on what to put in an intro post, so I'm just going to jump into it.

My name is Kate Sullivan. I'm a third year animation student at the School of Visual Arts, a member of Girls Drawing Girls, and an intern alumnus of Blue Sky Studios and Titmouse Inc. My primary interests are in story art, compositing, and illustration, but I love every part of animation filmmaking. When I'm not talking someone's ear off about animation, you can usually find me in the nosebleeds at the MetOpera. I'm also attempting to watch 100 movies I've never seen before in a year. I've been doing it for about four years now and only fell short by four in 2009. You can follow along on the left. On the right are links to blogs of my peers and idols.

You can also follow me on Twitter @thebouncingbird and Vimeo. You can visit my old art blog at Draw a Day, where I tried doing a mini-illustration a day. I had to call it quits at the end of June due to a case of tendonitis, which is mercifully almost gone.

The first group project I got to be a part of with Girls Drawing Girls was the 2011 Calendar. We worked in pairs for each month and I was delighted to be a part of February where I came up with the concept, the girl on the right, and final color. We have limited copies for sale and you can get a look at the pages on our Facebook page. The February page is not the final image that went to press, but I highly encourage picking up a copy to see how it turned out. :)

The New Yorker is having their annual Eustace Tilley contest where you redesign the chap with the monocle and the butterfly. I started thinking about how much Eustace resembled the Monarch from Adult Swim's 'The Venture Bros.', so I sketched out the idea and over winter break

The New Yorker

One of my favorite ways to stay in shape is to do composition studies from my favorite movies and I started this year with a shot from Blake Edwards' 'Victor Victoria'.

For the most part, I want to use this blog to show what I'm working on, be it freelance or schoolwork. Later today or this week I'll post the tome of figure drawings I have from last year, but I've got to skedaddle. Thanks for dropping by!
