Visiting the Cousins

I had a delightful time visiting my Tennessee kin last week and grabbed a few shots when I could (when we weren’t watching little Emery…).

I’m relocating to Columbia, TN soon, and I have to say, I’m beyond excited about it. It’s like a light bulb turned on while I was there, and it felt like home–complete with cows.

My early childhood was spent in the upper Midwest, so it’ll be great to return to some soil that is actually made out of soil, rather than sand.

Evidently Miranda Lambert and Justin Timberlake won’t be too far away too. They say you run into a lot of really nice people in this part of the country.

I’m sure we’ll be best friends forever…

Anyway, I’ll keep up as much as I can. Must get packing though. I have to fit everything I own into my Corolla. I don’t think that will be terribly difficult, but my mom has a habit of sending me off with enough supplies to last several months, so I may need to rent a Uhaul.

Boo.

Movies and God

We had a gorgeous shoot on behalf of Ratio Christi, a Christian apologetics ministry, and my sister, Anna Kitko, who is the new chapter director at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Here’s a great shot of her beautiful face. I’ll be working on the edits as the week progresses.

I Built a Castle

Sort of. I drew it. On a computer. No photos involved (I love the night sky!)

I’ve been into animation since I was a wee thing, and, fairy creature that I am, fantasy elements typically play into my creations. So, whilst listening to the very talented Jim Dale narrate Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, I drew this. It’s completely original, and I have no idea what the rest of the world looks like outside of the image you see, because I have yet to create it.

Maybe I can work in video game production design, hmmm?

Shout out to Weta Workshop, who WILL be my future employer (or maybe just in my dreams..?)
