Angel

Just a little sketch to check and see that the computer is up and running after a major virus attack. So long all my digital art from the past three years! Let this be a lesson to me to burn DVDs of everything, not just have backup drives.

I travelled to Denmark in October to teach character design for a week at the wonderful Animation Workshop. I had a great time; the students were all exceptionally talented and the staff very welcoming. Not to mention Denmark is a beautiful country and a mecca for yummy food, it was a treat to visit.

I've been doing a lot of writing these past few months, and now that I've got a new studio space set up, I hope to get some more art done as well.

If I don't post again before Christmas, I hope everyone has a great holiday. :)

beautiful as always. sorry to hear about your art loss...joe lost years worth of art due to a hard drive failure a few years ago and it was really frustrating. :(

I use a program called Jungle Disk to do daily off-line backups of my work. It's literally pennies a month to do so. There are lots of alternatives, but the most important thing is that it's automatic, you don't have to copy files, or burn a CD - zero effort once you set it up. Totally worth it!

Hopefully Google preserved some of it.

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement and ideas. :) I definitely haven't given up yet on trying to save the files. They are sitting trapped on a drive. Hopefully they can be rescued.

Breadwig said...

Gorgeous new illustration Sarah. I think you've got a good shot at recovering all your files (fingers crossed).

Hey Sarah. I love this one. Its gorgous. I've been working on my sketches too, trying to develop my skills, because I'm 15 and don't really have a personal style quite yet. I was hoping, maybe if you had time when posting your next sketch, if you could check mine out and give me your opinion. I have two blogs. InKenny'sShoes is my most recent, and SimplyOutgoing is an older one. Hope you check them out!
