RIP Sergio Toppi(1932-2012)

One after another, these graphic novel masters left us this year(Searle, Moebius and now Toppi). Let us remember them.

I did some searches on Google Art Project after work tonight, thinking it would keep me happy and occupied despite the sad news. And of course, it did the trick: I found so many new images and can't get off of it till, well, now, like 4 hours later. So be very careful and only go here when you have the time to spare, or if u weren't as greedy as me~! ;P

And here  are some gems!

Ships of San Diego~

Hi Friends~ I was at Eidolon Fine Arts booth, 4504 Comic Con International this weekend~! The turn out this year was as crazy as usual, and Eidolon did really great at the show, we are thinking of two tables next year! :D Glad to have seen many old friends and made new ones!

When i wasn't at the booth - which was more often than not, cause the weather outside is so enticing - i was out on the harbor enjoying the fresh seafood and doing some watercolors~ There's nothing like painting outdoors~!
Hope you enjoy them,

Dream II

                                                                   Work in progress

 (Having amazing bizarre dreams lately~ Going to try and document some random bits of them here. After all, don't dreams and art spun from the same thread?)

 I had a dream.

"You just missed him." The driver looks me slyly as the car takes a sharp turn. He's referring to the huge black cat that just ran passed, who I have a inkling is something(one) else.

I walked into this crowded temple built from slabs of rough white stone. The people are murmuring and shouting in anger: "The holy water is tampered!" The stream is not small, and cupped with gold. There are some twigs and leaves inside but nothing else.

 In front of me there's a brilliant woven carpet, the gold threads shining. "Look, this thread is you. and the carpet is the whole &(&^*^." Someone says. In front of me the pattern starts to change. my thread turns from blue to red, but it's almost unnoticeable among the fast emerging and subsiding patterns. Suddenly, the whole upper right corner of the carpet seems to deepen in color to a rich black, and the thread on that part disappearing and losing in color. "That's a genocide." The man tells me.
