Hi! My name is Tara Audibert, I earn my living as an artist. Welcome to my day!
I have worked in TV animation for more than a decade and am currently working on my own film funded through the Canadian Counsil for the Arts and NBarts entitled “The Importance of Dreaming”. I have taught animation for many years and continue to work as a freelance illustrator & consultant for comics. I co-host the podcast No Such Thing as Grown Ups, and we promote indie artists like ourselves through showcasing A Day in the Life of an Artist. We make funny videos and web series so Subscribe to our Youtube.

10:00am Check emails, social stuff etc..
10:13am Watch RHWOC while I work on guest animating an episode of Illos animated podcast. Here is a little video of me animating something. It is not a spoiler, a bit dry, so I sped it up, that made the RWH way better! also did some funny biz towards the end. 🙂 It took me a while to decide on the eyes for this scene. I am animating in a bit of an unorthodox way, just going with the feel, no storyboards or preproduction, so it takes longer. Save time and storyboard. I am just experimenting.
11:50am took Burke out to sunbathe and ate some lunch.
