a swift change of gear

i just started this weekend, excited by an idea of my friend, to work on a comicbook(!) for Comic Con. i am super hyped, so u will be seen some roughs on this blog in the coming days to July! ^0^ i am basing my story on Oscar Wilde's children story "The Young King", but the twist being it takes place in a fantacy land, with Chinese and Arabic influences.
Best of luck to moi! (very lazy so i need it :()

Wednesday, November 01, 2006


U left me in the garden last night and locked the door. around midnight it started raining, and gnomes came out and hide in my hair. we discuss soils and clouds and good weather. So this is how u found me this morning. u said, "how fun was it?"

Just Kidding. :) it's just a self portrait, more fantasy then from any photos. i wish it rains more in San Diego.

Calendar update

This piece dragged on for so long, and i didn't work on it at all... *____* but oct 6 is the deadline, so i need to remind myself to squeeze some changes in:
1. the old man's face and body need definition;
2. the girls' bodies and faces need changes;
3. clean up the trees and background shapes;
4. pull in photoshop to do edges at the end.

hopefully i fit all this in! ^_______^

Wednesday, August 23, 2006

By the way: the thing that the man is holding is a cage. hence the escaped bird. hence the title "Escape". Very unclear right now. Hope that gets better with time. ;-)

Saturday, May 27, 2006

it's like pulling teeth, huh?

little by little

still trying to find the vibe of the piece. slowly shifting my original idea. gotta give the monster what it wants, don't we?

rented "Eros" today. shockingly good for a wang kai wei film. two thumbs way up.

Thursday, May 25, 2006

Hopefully this will get some love this weekend... i seriously need to work on this really really hard. it's not doing what i wanted at all.

can't help but did a little update.

sucky sketches anyone?

today there was a severe sunset. intense. which reminds me how little i have seen them recently. i mean, i am almost 25, and there are only two sunsets that i remember vividly. makes me want to move to where King Hong lives. i bet they have great sunsets there all the time. sunsets so beautiful i might drive off the cliff without realizing. Be careful, David! @_____@

Sunday, May 14, 2006

still on the way!

damn! i thought i could finish it today! and now i look at it....

give me a couple more weeks.

i just realize today, i been drawing all these years and i always thought i am only "mildly" into art, that i could one day just say "that's it" and walk away and do something else, like be a food critic or a savage or sth. but noooooo. i am so addicted and i will probably die thinking about my "next painting". *____* a sad realization, but i gotta stick to it.

Saturday, May 13, 2006

don't judge me, it's not done yet. ;-)

Thursday, May 11, 2006

here they are, in the order of as i did them on the train to LA.

E3 was fun, at least for me, since it's my first time there. cool games previews, didn't get too much freebies(sad), and the longest line i waited in was at starbuck's. hope u all had fun as well. ^___^

done or NOT done.... ?

i had the part I of my perfect dream.

i was working on a pirate ship as an archeologist. it's the grandest ship i have ever seen, everybit as cool as the one in Disneyland, and ten times more masts and yards, and each one had a pirate guarding it.
i was in my cabin looking through a telescope, scouting locations for our treasure hiding purposes. this port suddently came into view, with beautiful houses that look like the buildings from atop the fancy cookie jars. i remember feeling bumped out because i didn't have my digital camera with me. we went abroad, looked around, and enter this cave. it was dark and dangerous. however, we were able to evade most of the unknown dangerous creatures by swinging our torches at the darkness, and forming a circle. i saw a big empty entry way slightly to the left, and went towards it absentmindedly. "LOOK OUT! THAT'S A TRAP!" the old captain yelled behind me. it was too late. these black flying creatures started to shoot out of the ground like little canyon balls, and they drag on to me as hard as they can. another young pirate who was caught in the same entry way as me, put me on his shoulders and started to run as fast as he can across this bat field. i opened my parasol and try to fend them off with it. when we finally reach the other side, he put me down, and dropped to the ground. his blouse was darkened by blood. i cried out:"NOOOOOOOOO!!!!......"

and i woke up.
