L.A. Land vs. Berkebee

25 Feb

Greetings from Los Angeles!

So after the most bizarre flight – A woman had a heart attack an hour into the flight, 2 doctors on the plane saved her life, and the plane had to turn around back to NYC. (Oh, and this was after a guy got kicked off the flight due to his threatening actions towards a stewardess) I have safely arrived in LA 3 days ago. Seems like the Gods really didn’t want me to leave NYC.

It’s official. Berkebee is Bi-coastal. I now have an apartment in both cities…although I am certain this is only because I am having a hard time accepting that I won’t live in NYC for a year. I feel this blog is officially going to turn into “Adventures of an East Coast Girl in an LA world”

I am very excited to be here reguardless. I’ve been picked up to be an assistant animator and coordinator for the animation department on Robot chicken’s 6th season. Very good promise of becoming an full animator by the end of the season.

I’m playing this Day by Day. No big plans or expectations, just working hard to do what i love. even if that means leaving everything and everyone I love behind for a bit. Guess it’s a price you pay for pursuing your dream as a career driven modern gal. Don’t I sound like Carrie Bradshawl now?



Sketched this on the plane for AJ who won my weekly riddle. It took me awhile to draw it due to my relocation. This sketch was inspired by a Strand Physicist from Holland named Balt who kept me entertained throughout our ridiculous flight adventure from NYC-LA. He described what he did for a living as, “You know Sheldon from The Big Bang Thoery? Well I am him. But less awkward maybe.”


Cheers everyone! Wish me luck!


Sesame Street Kid’s Spot FINISHED!

2 Feb

My 3 week Sesame Street Months of the Year spot is wrapped!

Aside from some difficulty of last minute changes from the client…who then forced us to do some things in post that we would have rather done practically (if we had time and knew ahead of time…) I am pretty happy with this spot for the small budget and tight time constraint we had!

Enjoy! What do you think?
