Because this was a requested piece, I was given guidelines to follow. On top of that I took the pose from an ancient photograph of Fred Astaire. In some ways that made it harder. I think it's a cool picture, but something keeps nagging at me that it's not finished.
That's the hardest thing about art, you have to know when to stop improving and step away :)
I had a fabulous time at the 10th Annual Kids First! Best Awards at the Sante Fe Film Festival. I won two awards! I received the second place prize in my category for Student Animation College Production. On top of that I received a $5000 Scholarship from Watkins College of Art, Design & Film in Nashville Tennessee and a monetary award of $250. This Scholarship Award was given out to the two most promising students in the categories of College and High School.
