About me

Email me.
At the beginning of my career, back when dinosaurs ruled the earth, I struggled to plump my resume so it would fill a single page. Nowadays I must ruthlessly slash it down to three. Here's my official bio, where I talk about myself in the third person... (scroll downie, downie, downie for the UNofficial one):



JC Little is The Animated Woman. 



Mom, animator, humorist...award-winning story artist, compelling public speaker and social media minx! Always playful and often poignant, she blogs her eclectic slice-of-life stories with unique drawings and animation here at TheAnimatedWoman.com. She's a happily married mother of three and a director whose 30+ year career in animation has spanned commercials, feature films, TV series, new media, mobile apps and picture-books.

JC is a two-time BlogHer Voice of the Year honoree, and winner of three Canadian Weblog Awards. She's on the Wacom site as a Wacom Ambassador, and delivers highly illustrated keynotes on leadership, visual storytelling and empathy. JC is the creator and director of the Disney-syndicated, Gemini-nominated kids TV series, My Life Me, and has animated over 30 short films, the latest of which is the award-winning Papa Pasquale.





A busy entrepreneur, JC's Montreal based company Little Animation produces eco-educational media for kids. She created the PickleWeasel iPad drawing app and in her latest adventure has published six picture-books since 2013: The LAST Snowman, Motherhood, PickleWeasel Picture Riddles Vol 1, 2 and 3, and ELLO MONKEY: Reanimating Social Media

Stylus in hand, she can be found drawing and engaging with her readers throughout the week on TwitterFacebookGoogle+ and Ello.

Lookit! JC's featured on the WACOM site!



Some interviews... WACOM, Animation Magazine, SheKnows.com, AmusedNow.comGlocul MagYouChew, The [Real] Scratchpad and The Making of Frenching. To view a selection of JC's latest animated short films, visit her YouTube channel.



I am The Animated Woman...normally I wear this purple dress. But sometimes I wear a Super Suit. I have yet to find the right bra to go with it.

Why do I draw all this stuff? I'm going to be drawing one way or another: this seems like a good place to put it. I feel it when I draw it. If you could see me drawing, you'd be like, wow, she really feels it; look at all the weird faces she's making.

So, if I'm a Super Hero...who will be my Sidekick?

  12. OOOOOOOOOH!!! I'll be your sidekick! I can fix things (correctly,) I am not afraid to ask for directions, I can cook really well, and can stop Havoc and Chaos in ONE word!

    did I mention I make a great cup of coffee?

    hehehe

  13. *Raises hand* *puts it down sheepishly* *slouches in chair* *glances around* *raises hand slightly, while blushing, and crossing fingers under the desk* (<-- that’s how I ALWAYS raised my hand in school… never *really* sure if I wanted to get picked.) LOL!!! :-D
    But who wouldn’t want this job? :-) You’re going to have everyone applying -- maybe even movie stars, pets, statues, and/or other cartoons/comics. :-P

  14. Can I be your evil sidekick? :p

    ReplyDelete
  15. Brian - Clearly you are multi-talented and useful to have around. You would make an excellent sidekick. But you'd have to get yourself into danger every now and then so I could rescue you. Otherwise I might start to feel threatened.

    I'M THE SUPERHERO. You're THE SIDEKICK.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sarah - that's interesting. Very honest and sweet. Human, vulnerable, endearing. Have I told you I love you lately?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Trust me...Brian has NO problem with getting himself into trouble...not that I would know firsthand or anything. BUT if he's your sidekick I want dibs on being the younger Alfred type person...


    JC - you're a wonderful woman and absolutely rawk at the whole super hero thing already...can't wait to see just how much more awesome you are with fancy spandex, mask, & a cape! OMG! How awesome is a CAPE!?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Clearly it's me. For reasons soon to be revealed by YOU. And modest, too. :)

    Besides, I would look great in a sidekick outfit, and I'm naturally pre-disposed to getting myself into sticky situations, but helping others get out of theirs. And I have great hair today (just saying.)VOILA. Perfect sidekick material.

  19. I nominate your pretty daughter. I like all her comments on your fb page. And it's good to keep family close.

  21. Stephi - Thanks and you can totally be the gizmo manufacturing younger hawter Alfred type person. Also? HALLOWE'EN IS COMING.

  22. Dot and Lil - How can you be a sidekick when you're already a super hero? Or should I say...soaperhero?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Tanya - I'll pass the compliment on to the daughter...but which one do you mean? Brunette or redhead?? Somehow I think that neither would be too happy to be their mom's sidekick though. They have their own adventures to discover. *sigh*

  24. Hello JC! I was wondering if I could use your services of drawing me punching out cancer. I'm a lifestyle and wellness/nutrional coach and mentor and would love to see about putting this on my website page. Of course there would be a link to your website too. Can we talk? I don't know if you have email or how I can reach you. My name is Lizz. My business email is: lizz@acting4me.com. Thanks! Oh, I stumbled on your website just by accident, but what a GOOD accident! Ha ha!

  25. I think I would be a great super hero sidekick, First I am a little fat celt, then I am a fragile little fat celt then I am small delicate and fragile Sherman Tank division, so if you patted me on the head 'super fast' I would begin to bounce and you could aim me at the enemy and I'd bounce all over them...and bounce back !so youwould always have a sidekick...and I'm an artist so we could be terribly arty now and again :) which is great as long as there is red wine and a deep sofa with extra cushions involved and decent music in the background...chat till 4am is encouraged :) thanx for adding me
