While attending the UW, Blake developed a strong academic understanding of drawing and painting. He later moved to Los Angeles, in 2011, to pursue his personal art career working in animation and video. In 2014 Blake entered into a graduate program at CalArts for experimental animation, and graduated with his MFA in 2017.
