No one can predict the tomorrow

Something I've photoshoped from scanned drawing I did a long time ago... if this summer counts as long time ago that is... This is a drawing I did when I was thinking of friends I'm leaving behind in Sarasota. All the Ringling colleagues... I wonder how they're doing now... Once in a while it's good to think back of old days I had with dear friends. Well, I don't have that many friends, but that's why they are valuable to me. Thanks everyone, for who have concern of me, who cares about me.

I'm off to new life tomorrow... saying that makes it sound like it's big deal but it's nothing but a same routine of chronological order. Different Mindset brings new perspective to life. Living for someone else as well as yourself is what's important. That's what I come to realize recently. This world is not only a place for myself but for others as well. I'm just a part of it. Then why not, lets do something to contribute a little happiness to the others. I'll be creating more stories with these little guys having little bits and pieces of everyone I know. Good and bad, both of 'em.

Reflection of High and Mighty Colored Mirror

With the guilt from lack of post I've done since I started this blog, I'm posting the recent sketch I did for my character drawing. ('~') I'm thinking of using this guy for my comic/manga I'm thinking of starting.... in a few more upcoming years... (<.<) I randomly started drawing after listening and getting inspired to the song "Mirror" from "High and Mighty Color". That's my self proclaimed theme song I've given for this story! mwahaha. I'll be coloring this drawing with Adobe Illustrator. Drawing with vector has soaked into me since I started working for Carters. Maybe I'll give some gradient if I get to it...

Daily life in Carters

Surprising to see that there are quite a numbers of Ringling grads working here. Not all the people are from Ringling, some are from SCAD, ACA, and etc. Working here for 2 months as an intern, I can see definite talent that these artists have. I'm working my way up to be up at where they're at! :D

This is some quick drawing I did of how it's like with each cubical (triadical???) thing in Carter's. Although Theresa and Lauren in this drawing is working in real life.... (this drawing is done in a way to show their personality). Lauren is a helpful cubical neighbor and Theresa is cool neighbor who has her own pace. I'm just struggling as an intern... haha

I did this drawing for tiny farewell drawing for cubical group on where I used to sit. Now I sit next to two other guys which are Jermaine and Rolon. I'll have to draw for them since Jermaine requested it for his drawing to be done. :D

New place to live and part of my life

I haven't updated in a while so here's some part of my life just to fill in some blanks... (._.)

Here's my desk where I spend time chatting with friends and waste time surfing through the net.

Ikea's lamp. It was so weird I had to buy it!

Ikea has some unique lamps and for cheap!

Here' s my chef at my house. The incredible CURRY PENGUIN!!! If I don't make my curry the right way, he takes his chef knife and chases me with it.

If you were wondering what was scattered on the floor, I'm building a model kit. This is my favorite mobile suit, Wing Zero Custom.

It's taking me quite a while to finish this model kit since I'm carving off the extra chipped part with exacto knife where I nipped it off from the set. It's just what I do for model kit that I want it to look neat when it's finished.

This mobile suit appears in one of my favorite show Gundam Wing. Gundam Wing has deep story involving political dilemma to one's reason to fight as a soldier. The main character Heero Yuy who is also the pilot to this mobile suit has some guts that I look up to. From few shows I've seen, this is probably one of the best show that has existed. Plus, all the Gundams that comes out in Gundam Wing is aesthetically amazing!

Carter's Internship

Jaws droppage! Carter's flew me up to Atlanta last friday and I got a phone call from them afterwards that I got an internship with them! This month basically has been the most hectic in my life, I would think... I had senior thesis show, graduation, getting kicked out of the dorm the day after graduation, moving into new apartment, first interview ever, and the internship notice! now, it's matter of finding new place to live in Atlanta and surviving in Carter's... Hopefully I can ride through the current that's delivered by Carter's... So here I am, repacking my stuff I've unpacked in my new apartment... (-_-) But hey, I ain't gonna complain since Carter's gave me a new start on my career. Thank you Carter's! I guess I have enough time since I told them I'm going to start the internship on June 9th. Hopefully, all works out fine.... (>_<)

Ahlrighty! Here are some piece that I'm working on for my thesis. I made a design for the T-shirt with a mass load of help from my awesome old roomie Kiem Vu!!! who is an amazing Graphic Designer! This image is just my design put on top of some random image of guy with t-shirt to see how it looks like.

Yup, so the Tees are gonna be front and back having Puu the penguin chasing after Boro the robot. It makes it look like it's going across the tee sideways so you feel like you're walking along the same direction with two character's chasing eachother. Unique eh? yeap, that was Kiem's idea! Honestly, I couldn't have pulled out this Tee's design to look as successful as this without Kiem's help. SUCCESSION 200% FUUUUU~~~!!!! I gotta say, teamwork is awesome!!!!!

So now, I gotta go take it to the Tee printing company to get em printed out and ready to sell it for thesis show!! It usually takes 2 weeks for Tee printing company to get it printed out, so I'm barely on the safe line to make it for thesis show. Phew....

Ok, back to work! laterz!
