My Bio

I like to make anything out of anything. Sculpture, traditional illustration, film, music, all kinds of animation... Curiosity killed the master of none. While nothing is off the table, animals and nature are typically the themes that pop up most often in my work, and mixed media animated music videos are probably my favorite thing to make.

Every few years I go through an intense new fangirl obsession. Right now it's the Beatles, so that's mostly what's been flooding my gallery lately. I am not sorry.

I got my BFA in experimental animation at CalArts, tried to work a bit in the LA film industry, then promptly returned home to the country where I belong. In addition to incidental freelance projects, I currently run an Etsy shop and YouTube channel (both called MadeleiZoo). Check out my stuff and look at my dog. :heart:

Over on my Instagram ( @ MadeleiZoo ), I've been doing Throwback Thursday every week to furnish my account with the best of my older art from before I joined there. This has been a great opportunity for me to rephotograph/re-edit a lot of work from way back before I knew how to focus a camera or even knew what a Photoshop was (y'all remember Picnik??). So that's why some of my recent deviation submissions may be looking a little familiar. Whenever I go to upload the new photos over here, even though I always make sure to UNcheck the box that says "notify your watchers," for some stupid computer reason you guys are still getting that crap in your inboxes. Sorry about that! I promise I'm not trying to spam you or fish for compliments. I'm in the middle of a million projects right now and you'll get to see some actual new, current work very soon! ;)

Colorado Move + AUTOHARP

0 min read
Settling in to my new life in Colorado! (My whole family left Texas to be close to my sister, and also for the cooler weather/hiking.) Kazoo and I are renting a little house with three other girls and their dogs, and I've got a nice chill job as a night auditor at a hotel (with plenty of down time to work on my own stuff!). I promise I haven't died...and am indeed working on my own stuff...there's just been so much lately with moving, home DIY projects, job applications/training, Etsy orders, and properly fitting Kazoo with her own entire wardrobe of little handmade sweaters. :meow: I've got ideas for more groovy fanart, and I hope to finish/scan/post all my art planners from the past several years (yep, I'm still doin' those!). But most recently I've been pursuing a new dorky hobby: AUTOHARP! Not gonna lie...I did eventually pass the point of overplaying the Beatles. :( I still love them of course, but I've also been exploring a whole world of OTHER music and making some
