Artist of the Day: April Liu

April Liu

April Liu is a second year animation student at CalArts. Her blog is a mixture of personal and school work with drawings and animated studies from projects in progress, such as a short about a fellow with a sprout growing from the top of his head. According to her blog posts, April may have abandoned this film having concluded that she wants to move on to a new film that will challenge her more.

    You guys have the best taste. At this point I’m adding almost every artist that you post.
