335 Sketches

I saw something simular to this scenery yesterday night, right when I was about to fall a sleep, but I forgot what it looks like. I only remember the geometric shapes and the distorted prospective.
I will be away for 3 weeks to a place where I must fight against other hundred? (less or more? not sure) students for limited internet speed. If I manage to upload anything then it mean I have temporary won the battle

336 Sketches

This is Jiufen in Taiwan. I have been there a couple times but that was a long time ago. I remember the stairs and little toy shops and snack shops beside the path. (or I could be just dreaming. You know when you get to certain age your memories become less reliable. That's what happened, you start to combine different things into one thing, very confusing.)

The shop owner would place the toys in front of the opening, and me as a six years old child would grab one of the toys and start playing with it for who knows how long.
This place is also where the street scene in Spirite Away is based on. Next time when I go back to I'm going to visit it again to refresh my memories.
recognize any of those toys?

I have been reading manga lately so I have been very unproductive lately. Unfortunately, there are still at least 20 more volumes left for me to read so I will continue be unproductive.

evil psychopath planning on his next move?
or just a business man sitting on his only chair, thinking about his bankruptcy.

Holding a real pencil and drawing on a paper still feels better than drawing on tablet.

345 Sketches

I am getting more comfortable with my tablet now! I didn't use "zoom in"at all when I was painting it so the image looks sumular to what a near sighted person like me would see the world.


This is so far my best work. I have mastered the harmony of the colours and the flow of the lines that you can't even detect my drawing.

I'm joking. I have been defeated by my laziness. I shall post my drawing tomorrow night, promise...? Going for mountain hiking tomorrow, so I'll see how my condition is when I get back.  Where is my dignity?

La Luna 2010

I saw this 7 minutes Oscar nominated short in the theater. It was screened before the movie Pixar's Brave. I said I like this short more than Brave.

Today, we finally finished the zoetrope. I'm exhausted from all the making and installing process but I absolutely love this class. We are such a great team! It's amazing that we did this all in less than 3 weeks. I'm proud.

I think I should also mention that we were working in a studio with no air condition on record breaking hot days. It was 100°F/ 38°C out there!

I love raccoons. They will push over your garbage can and dig all the good stuffs you left in it or scratch open your rooft top to find insolation or lay on your driveway like they are the owner of your house. I find that adorable.

look at that mutated long arm!
Today, I stucked my key in between the elevator doors and pretended that I opened the elevator doors with my key.
