One Big Bird — and Not From Sesame Street!
Mary J. Lai creates art and animation under the moniker of Birdzilla Studios. According to her web site, “She has a fondness for birds, which are a frequent subject in her work and cause of quite a few shenanigans in her life. Her achievements include receiving the Matt Groening Initiative award for her thesis film Velo Hoot (which was also selected for an encore in the Best of the NorthWest Animation Film Fest), featured filmmaker for UCLA’s Film & TV’s Director’s Spotlight for her second year film dream(drem)n., and multiple donor awards.” And of course, there are lots of animal, monster, and anthro-animal characters in her portfolio too.
