Hi Sophie, I wanted to let you know how meaningful your thanksgiving doodle was for me. My younger son, Caleb, died on Sept 3. For us, foxes represent him (there's a story, but I see I'm working w a character count). Amazingly, foxes seem to be popping up everywhere since he died. Then your doodle. But here's the kicker- my surviving son is (nick)named Banjo. So when I saw that the thanksgiving message was of a fox+banjo I was so touched. Thx 4 your beautiful creation. love, ellen
My sincerest condolences. Thank you so much for sharing this story with me. I would love to hear about how foxes came to represent Caleb.
It looks like your tumblr is not heavily used so I hope you see this response… If you like, you can email me your address (email@example.com) and I would love to send you a little print of Fox and Banjo : )
For this year’s Thanksgiving Google Doodle, I made a lil animation!
I knew making a short film for work would be an incredibly time-consuming process, so I tried to stuff it with all of my favorite things: foxes, forests, field mice, and food. I’ve been making fox/forest/mouse films for years and still have yet to get bored of it. I was also inspired by Animal Crossing! Maybe I’ll get myself a 3DS tomorrow as a prize for finishing this doodle :p
More thanks and rough sketches/process can be found in the doodle blog post here.
Have you been watching Steven Universe? Cuz you should!
I freelance-painted some backgrounds for S1E6, “Cat Fingers.” Many thanks to art director Kevin Dart for his invaluable help!
I don't know if you already know this, but Beast Coast just totally shared your doodle on Facebook! I though it was the coolest thing!
WOW http://facebook.com/bestcoast YOURE RIGHT *___* so starstruck
your use of colour makes me want to break down and cry from happiness, holy god woman!
No! No cry! (thank you!)
what's the way to ur heart?
I dunno I guess you could come by my locker after sixth period and we could walk to 7/11 and get Coke-flavored icees or something and then we could chill next to the creek (sitting on our backpacks because it’s muddy over there) and you could show me how many Jack Johnson songs you know on guitar ("can you play Banana Pancakes? it’s my favorite")
but I have to be home by 5, that’s when my mom gets back
just kidding, I don’t have a heart (ﾉಥ益ಥ）ﾉ ┻━┻
I'm using your Best Coast doodle as my cover photo on Facebook ;o gave credit of course
Oh wow thank you &_&;;
Tumblr Radar is a pretty magical thing.
Nope, all digital! Used one of your brushes, actually. :p “Deliciously Dry Brush,” I believe it’s in the Sampler. (Everyone else, go check out these brushes, they’re great. https://gumroad.com/kyletwebster)
Oh my gosh! Congrats on doing Edith for Google a while back~ I didn't know you did it but just wanted you to know that I was really interested and watched that documentary in the little news page. Thanks for the inspiration! <3
Of course! The whole point of doodles is for people to learn more about the subject! Glad you found it inspirational!
Your art and google doodles are always so adorable, thanks for being remarkable as well as an inspiration to a fellow illustrator!
Thanks! ”( o ⚇ o ”)
what do you find the trickiest to draw?
Boys! :< Also interiors, anything with rigid perspective (purely b/c of laziness), and kissing. How do faces fit together?!
