Quick sketch update.

Sorry for the lack of updating the past week or so, things have been quite busy over here. Recently had the pleasure to display two of my pieces along with a few friends (Elise, Hieng, Dave, Hyein, Daisy, and StudioQube) in the student gallery here at Sheridan. It was fun and the display turned out pretty nice, thanks to Julia Breckenreid for making this student gallery possible.

The show was just taken down a day or two ago. I will update with pictures soon.

Anyway, what do you think of when you see the image below? What word do you think of? Its part of a rebus I am working on for 'Rethink' whom are promoting the grad show for us this year.

And.. here are some sketches I did while I was on the subway on the weekend and from my monday lecture.

Stay tuned, more to come soon :)

Rogers Interview Update

Thanks to everyone for the feedback on the website, i will be changing many things soon to make it better. Recently quite a few asked about the rogers interview thing i did, thanks for asking. I am actually a little embarassed by it cause I couldn't finish doing what i wanted to show on the show. I admit I was a bit nervous, haha. Originally, I was going to have them prepare the surface with gesso and with some ink texture on it. Then have them draw something with the marker on top and maybe a little bit of photocopy transfer. But after they finished gessoing the board...they told me there was only like 1 minute left, so i told them to draw on it...cause the board looked dried to me..LOL wasn't yet...I knew I should've done something simpler...well.. now i know.

Overall though it was a really fun experience, i definitely learned a lot from it. If it ever happens again, i'll know what I need to change and what i can do better. Anyways here is the video.

First week was awesome, lots of exciting projects. I am very excited this year to do some new and original work.

I've been working the past few days to try to get my site up. Tried to keep it simple.
So heres a temporary launch...for my website.

There is still a lot I'd like to change and tweak but for it is.

Hope it loads ok for most of you.

Also here is another 'near final' update of the red wolf hood painting. I am putting it off for a bit. I still want to touch it up here and there some more..but a bit busy right now to do it.

Busy time and Rogers Interview

First off, Happy new year everyone.

2007 passed by so fast. Can't believe its already 2008. Lots of new plans in this new year. Lots of work i want to get done and new things i want to try out. I don't really have any special new years resolution, but to work harder and keep drawing and painting.

I am currently working on my personal portfolio website, hopefully i can have it up by monday or latest tuesday morning. At least a simple layout and a few pieces of work on the website.

I am also excited and happy to say that I recently received a call from Rogers Television, whom invited me as a guest to go on their show called 'Daytime' on January 8th, this upcoming Tuesday!
They told me they got my card when i was at the Heroes Painting even in the summer. So they want me to maybe do a demo to teach the hosts some painting and perhaps and interview to talk about new work and the upcoming events. Exciting stuff, hopefully I don't make stupid mistakes, haha.

Again, the show is called Daytime and will air on January 8th at 11am, then a rerun on 4pm, and then again on 11pm.

Rogers channel is channel # 63 for me. But that might be different depending on where you live.

Hope everyone had a great holiday and a great and exciting new year.
I will update with new work soon. XD
