Who are your favorite artists you look towards when looking for style inspiration?

Ooh wow what a question! Well, I can list a few artists I enjoy off the top of my head! Carter Goodrich, Nico Marlet, Masaaki Yuasa, Robert Valley, Rebecca Sugar and so many more! I guess I don’t know if they really inspire my “style” but I do find myself going back and looking/trying to learn from their work. I think its really important to dissect art, figure out what components you like and try to apply them to your own work! Also don’t be afraid to look at other fields of study for inspiration! Never limit yourself and keep searching for new things!



Incoming CalArts Character Animation BFA1 classmate Ashley Nicole Boyd was recently diagnosed with hearing loss. She worked very hard to be accepted into CalArts, and it would be a huge loss to our community if she were not able to attend because she could not hear her instructors.

Ashley says:

My hearing loss is genetic, and I was diagnosed this summer after getting unrelated surgery.

The hearing supplies I’m trying to pay for are Widex Dream 440’s, an M-Dex so I can use my phone, connect to computers & bluetooth devices, and a bluetooth microphone for professors to wear during class so I can hear them.

Without my hearing devices, I can’t attend CalArts as I won’t be able to hear professors or films, but I also won’t be able to return to work since my hearing loss makes me miss 40%+ of human speech.

****Some students from CalArts Character Animation’s incoming BFA1 class have offered to help Ashley by donating original art, ranging from thank-you card doodles to full commissions, as reward levels. Please check them out!****

Our goal is set to $7500 to account for the 5% GoFundMe fee and the 2.9% + $.30 per donation fee for WePay. Any excess funds not used for Ashley’s hearing supplies or site fees will be used for tuition.
