My fourth year film may or may not involve a beaver and a pinkie (mouse).

FFTactics MBTI

sorry archers, nobody cares about you :,(
My friend Jordan Harrison is a very intelligent Psychology major, and part of his studies include MBTI, or Myers Briggs Type Indicator. We both love games and FFTactics, so he drew correlations between the game's job classes and I pieced together the pic above. It was nostalgic and fun! Jordan is currently in Beijing, so I look forward to his cross-cultural epiphanies.

ruff Holder

I'm stuck in the middle of a short gif of Holder I'm making. His short hair stumped me design wise... 

I'm trying to post every day to encourage myself to keep making things... aah I just have to have fun with it >_<

Steven Holder sketches

I'm really excited that Netflix is picking up The Killing for a fourth season. Really great casting and the two leads are so so so interesting. Steven Holder is such a fox, and I wanted to figure out how to simplify/caricature his face (first pic). But... the best one came out a few months ago, that i scribbled out right after watching the first two seasons. It remains my favorite. Study of a thing to design is not to be taken lightly; drawing from a few screenshots just doesn't compare when the feel of the series/theme/character is fresh! ...  Except he never juts out his hip like that--What was I paying attention to?

Paint what you know? This tall papaya plant is in our small back yard, and I have never tasted its fruit. I imagine our papaya feels bitter existence, smack dab in the simple elements, giving hope to the weeds.

wait. *I* have hair.

I'm trying to design. My face is something familiar but still foreign if I look closely. I can see why people do 'warm-up' sketches. To observe sometimes daunting but if it's your face you're observing it's less so. Because I'm used to seeing my own face it seems 'easier' but I'm not sure if it really is. There's something to be said about how comfortable we think we are when attempting something. There's no reason I shouldn't attempt anything. Because my face could've been anyone's face, and there are literally billions of iterations of faces, infinite possibilities in drawing medium, not to mention subject matter, approach, format... but I have fun doing it, whatever it happens to be. What a world that I can choose to draw a few shaved monkeys in wigs.

My blog has become achromatic. I need to color something.

Life draw Hairy man

From a recent life drawing session. I suppose if I wasn't on the internet I would be looking at hairy men. The patterns are so fun to draw! Definitely more to explore there. Maybe I should just draw furry animals.... Naaah.

I finished watching season 2 of Orange Is The New Black. I'm pretty sure I could be Crazy Eyes; I managed to spook myself in the mirror. I'll keep working to portray my petrifying introspection.

Japan - airport dude

Me and my two friends Mari snd Lea are staying in Japan for 9 days!

The long flight on Hawaiian Air had great food I have to say. One funny observation is that the bathroom sign has a one legged woman (I find reinterpretation of signage refreshing). Kansai airport is very clean and spacious-- architecture here shows a persistence to mind beauty. I'm very impressed with the hotel, also digging the nearby corner convenience store, my stash is shown in the last pic.

Hopefully I will keep this shared journal consistent. I'm ready to eat eat eat my way to Japan's heart!

I like megaman

Listening to megaman soundtracks got me in the mood for fan art. I think Roll would like to don a power suit and fight bad guys now and then.
