Inspiring Artist - Mode 2 (NSFW)

MODE2 "Preludes" Art Exhibition in Paris from Rebild Productions on Vimeo.
I'm not joking when I say I have been a fan of this guy's since I was a kid. It all started with Spraycan Art by Jim Prigoff. Then , just seeing his work in Graffiti magazines (before the internet). Then actually seeing some of his pieces up close in NYC. Now you can follow him on social media and he has had a website for at several years. Check out this video of him putting together a show!

Short story 24 - Argue

Short story 24
They fought all the time before Mama went away. She took care of them and taught them lessons about loving each other that took a long time for them to understand. In fact it wasn't until the flu began watching their every move that Donny and Jalil truly understood what brotherhood meant. They would have to agree on more than just the channel for this new technology to work. 

On shorts: I started doing these over 8 years ago as a way to practice my writing and illustration. Just barely starting to pick it back up again. Want to see more? Check out:

We are delighted to announce the upcoming 12th Annual Bay Area International Children's Film Festival , which takes place  February 22-23, 2020  (Sat-Sun) at the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland.

Save the Date  for an amazing program of films and activities inspired by our theme, The Power of Kids , as BAICFF highlights the ways that young people use their voices to change the world. Through premieres of international family-friendly films, special events, and presentations from award-winning filmmakers, the festival celebrates children  who use social justice, activism, and civic engagement to call attention to issues that affect us all.

This year's highlights include:
  • Films and Guest Filmmakers from around the World.
  • Election Year Special! Get your civics lessons  with the retro "School House Rock!" BAICFF showcases some of these beloved animated educational short films, which originally ran on television from 1973 to 1985 and are still just as relevant today.
  • Our ever-popular Stop Motion Animation Workshops, for kids ages 6-14.
  • The Fest's "How did they do that?" series highlights Berkeley-based Kuku Studios, with a special behind-the-scenes program about their new Netflix show "Go! Go! Cory Carson." This new animated show for preschool audiences follows the adventures of kid car Cory Carson as he navigates the winding roads of his childhood in Bumperton Hills. The BAICFF program will even be hosted by Cory Carson himself!
