Pink Diamond

A sketch a day keeps the voices away.


And rising...

For the past few days I've been ovewhelmed with news about Katrina and its aftermath. My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to visit the Big Easy last March. What's strange is some things are so abstract--30,000 people living in a stadium, for example. But little realizations--"That cab driver we talked to is probably homeless now." "The place where we took that nice swamp tour is under 20+ feet of water."--carry much more weight.

What frustrates me the most is the lack of response and help I see on the news. I started wishing I could physically do something. Namely, wishing I owned a helicopter. Or a boat.

Then it occurred to me that a boat might not be such a good idea, because--knowing me--if such a disaster--God forbid--happened to occur in my own neck of the woods, there's a good chance I'd just end up with a boat full of the neighborhood cats. Here's an artist's conception:

My conclusion: I'll stick to clicking "donate" at the Red Cross.



Hi everyone! Welcome to Pink Diamond, now moved to

This is a place for me to post random drawings--hopefully one per day, but we'll see--in hopes of astounding the general public with my boundless artistic abilities. Heh. If there is, in fact, anyone actually reading this.

Currently, I'm an animator on Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi, which is produced at Renegade Studios here in sunny Glendale, CA. I've just started a few weeks ago but it's a blast! I really enjoy working with everyone at the studio.

Also, keep an eye out for my short, "Mind the Kitty," coming next year to Oh Yeah Cartoons on Nickelodeon. I'll have a production blog up soon, and there will be tons of Flash-animated madness up there coming late September!

So yeah! Drawings! Hm...what to put up first? What about this painting of a dream I had a few nights ago? Three years of art school and I still have trouble holding a brush. Go fig.
