A painting of a blanket fort. I used an airbrush for the first time to add a vignette of sorts, and to add spot lighting to the christmas lights.

I went to the Ottawa International Animation Festival this past weekend. It was awesome, I met some really cool people, and saw some great films! Sadly, I was working most of the time, so I didn't draw much or see much, but I did get a chance to try out the Wacom Cintiq tablet at the booth across the room. It was like drawing with butter. On a video-fed frying pan.
