I love art-based community projects, and ‘Empty Bowls‘ is one of my favorite! I don’t make pottery or soup, so my contribution to fight hunger is this small oil painting; which will be raffled off tomorrow at Maysville’s Empty Bowls dinner.
I have fallen in love with Fiona, the baby hippo at the Cincinnati zoo. So I decided to make a short animation to celebrate her first swim in the big pool. My busy sister even had time to make an original song to play in the background. You can learn more about her music here: http://www.jaxmusicteacher.com. You can see more of my short animations in my animation gallery or follow me on instagram, where I have been sharing a lot nowadays.
