i am a self-defined Nuyorican creative (that is a Puerto Rican who is from both the isles of Manhattan, NYC and the Caribbean). I share daily in the joy of education and live in a cute port town in New York, in a 'teensy-weensy' apartment with my two dogs and canary named Valentino. Check out my Etsy shop for purchasable pieces. Please do not reproduce imagery off of this site without explicit credit and no derivatives may be made of my original imagery- Thank You.

Nominated Best Animated Shorts - My favorite part of the Academy Awards

Although I was rooting for some supporting actors in the Academy Awards tonight (yes Bale!!) as an artist, I am always smitten with the oscar nominated ANIMATED SHORTS section and so the Winner is...
The Lost Thing... Shaun Tan (one of my Absolute favorite illustrators and writers) & Andrew Ruhemann.
One day I will see my own animation dreams through but for now, I am fortunate enough to relish and be inspired by others who have awakened art through this genre.

Thanks to Youtube I have taken all the nominees and collected their trailers here for you all in one place! ENJOY!!
