Shark finning card in the paper! :)

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share that my  "Say no to shark fin soup" illustration created for my sister's wedding is in The Globe and Mail today (page 2 of Life section)! A reporter initially emailed me about the guests' reactions to the absence of shark fin soup at my sister's wedding (which I deferred to my sister, naturally) and everything kind of came together this way.

I think it's fantastic that there is growing awareness of how cruel and unsustainable shark finning is, and I'm happy my illustration can contribute to educating the public. For more information on shark finning, be sure to check out

My work encompasses a variety of styles, but if you're interested in seeing more of my cute card designs, please visit my portfolio on Carbonmade. :)

UPDATE: I'm planning on creating a new card for free use by couples getting married! The only requirement is that the couple will make a donation to WildAid or any other legitimate organization involved with shark conservation (and of course, boycott shark fin soup at their wedding). Please look forward to it!

small preview!

I am currently working on an 8 second interstitial animation depicting actin filament assembly. Here's a preview image for now! I'm using Autodesk Maya 2011 for modeling and animation. I did a pretty hack job in After Effects - need to render out the depth map properly...

Ahhh the next two weeks are going to be craaazy! But I have quite a few things to share from this term. :)

Hello all! Sorry I haven't been updating my blog recently. I'm trying to get through a crazy term right now, so I will be back soon to retroactively add to February and March lol! :)
