Merry Halloweeniemas Time!

Those two holidays are getting too close together, or maybe I'm just getting senile. I tried making the most annoying, girly Halloween cartoon I could, but was busy with a bunch of dumb crap. I got back to it this week. Here it is. I uploaded it to Vimeo, which is 1000000x better quality than pooptube. No dropped frames and blurry bgs, and you can download the quicktime file there for your own portable devices.

Love Shine from Brianne Drouhard on Vimeo.
Song Info (it's on Itunes):
Love Shine (Body Grooverz 2006 Mix)
artist: W.W.S.
album: Dance Dance Revolution - Hottest Party (c) Konami
Crappy Youtube version.

Horrible random facts:
Flash with wacom tablet. Like drawing with a giant melted crayon, on a cookie sheet, with my feet.
Two full weeks of work, off and on.
Hallucinated my tea cup was wiggly from lack of sleep.
The version on my computer actually has easy to read backgrounds.
The story still doesn't make any sense though, or fix timing and 180 problems.
Poor computer is old and I'm amazed it was able to handle this, barely.
My flight home for Xmas has been cancelled three times the last 24 hours.
I was able to finish editing because that happened.
My stomach hurts.
I'm being to negative.
But I had sushi with Clio! HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAA!!!!

(Konami please don't sue me!)

One of my friends produced a cd for Child's Play, an organization that raises money for children's hospitals.

"The Dancing Cats of Applesap"

This is for the "Once Upon a Time" show at Alpha Cult this weekend.
Here is the info:
Opens Saturday, Dec. 13, 7pm - 11pm
Runs through Dec. 13 - Jan. 7
Alpha Cult
408 East First St. Suite #102
Long Beach, CA 90802

The piece I submitted is inspired from a book I read when I was little called
"The Dancing Cats of Applesap". It's about a shy small town, a shy girl, old shy grumpy drugstore clerks, and some shy cats who live at a drugstore. There is also much ice cream sundae eating and dingy comic books! Then a big conglomerate drugstore moves in! Who will win? UH OHHHH!!! (I'm really sleepy and cannot write a decent synopsis.)

Some random pieces of arwork are going to be auctioned off at Nucleus this weekend. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross, to help the victims of the recent California fires.
The pieces that I have that should be available are, "The Child Like Empress" and "Yuki Onna VS the Ninjas"
Ok, have to get back to work.

Pet Lemon

Thanksgiving weekend was good. I got to go to Disneyland with some nice people (it wasn't quite the zoo everyone told me it would be that day, but it's probably an off year.) I also went to some popular ramen place with friends, looked at toys, read comic books, and actually drew for myself for once! yay.

Here is a reciept from a fairly recent get together with friends. I ordered the Lemon Mousse. It came up as pet lemon on the reciept.

All I want for less lemons.
