Today's daily was fun enough that I wanted to share it here.
"I'm mentally preparing myself for a trip to Mammoth soon."

The Woodmans

I don't usually do movie posters, but when my friend Ekin Akalin asked me if I'd be interested in doing the initial poster for The Woodmans, I said yes. It's a documentary on Francesca Woodman's life that came out last year and did quite well. As someone who loves photography I'm glad I got to be a part this in some way.

The Step Mother

Character brainstorming for a personal project I'm starting with a dear friend of mine. More to follow soon.

Dailies, Parking Lot

Some of my friends are already quite aware that I do a quick painting/drawing/doodle everyday to keep the painting/drawing/doodle muscles in shape. It's really quick stuff for the most part, so I post them on facebook instead of here on my blog. But every now and then I get inspired and keep at it until I get a decent scene locked in my mind, like this one. Still rough, but I take it that it gets the idea across...

Sketchclub Spotting

I've been away for the past two months, and I wasn't able to attend Sketchclub during this break. It was really great to see everyone and doodle innocent by-passers once again!

Thinking In The Rain

Not singing.

A little fan art. I don't know where it came from, I just felt like drawing a pre-existing character I guess. And yeah, she's not wearing any gloves. Deal with it.

Practice Time

I've been taking a break (still am), and I don't like how rusty I'm getting. So here's a break from my break...

Secret Guts

I know I don't usually paint guts so often, but it's a nice change to explore something new.

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Shhh, it's a secret...

Oh what?


I like mini breaks at work, street fashion, street photography, colors, photoshop and shapes. Here's what happened as a result the other day, when I had a minute between assignments.

I was a fan of her beautiful voice. Joined the 27 club like Hendrix, Joplin, Dylan, Morrison & Cobain.
Moe and I decided to make Sketchclub tributes. Here's his.

Update: Found out Reza did one too. Click click.

Kinofest International Digital Film Festival from Romania decided to add some of my work (along with my friend Aaron's) on their artists page for 2011. It's a small gallery of some talented people from all around the globe. International projects excite me!

I'm working on a cool lil thing these days and it's taking up all my free time- the free time I want to spend doodling, watching movies, reading books and sleeping. The lack of posts are inexcusable, so here's a quick doodle that was technically my "break". I'm leaving in my process, in case someone out there is curious...

I know I've been lacking in posts lately, so here's to fill in the blanks.

note: original logo, not designed by yours truly.

I got to work on this music video for ROME, a project by Modest Mouse & Daniele Luppi, featuring Norah Jones and Jack White. Since it's one of Chris Milk's interactive music videos, you have to click here to experience it.

Here's the case study Mirada put together, it shows some of the artwork we all put together to create the ROME worlds.

*Update: Motionographer recently did a little case study as well. If you're interested in reading, clickedy click.

Every now and then I go to the Gesture Drawing Tool to doodle a bit. I really love the animal drawing option, but the figure drawing one is pretty sweet too. What an incredible resource!

I think most of these were 30 seconds, with a few exceptions.

I haven't been able to go to the Sketchclub for the past few weeks, and I finally got the chance to do so. It feels nice to be back.

Quick sketch. I didn't intend it to be Cruela. Actually I didn't even intend it to be a drawing. I was just messing around with brushes, looking at the incredible Paul Lasaine's blog, and this just kinda happened.

Kim V, everyone. She's a sweet sweet lady.

Culver City

Here's another gouache sketch. The colors didn't scan in very well and it's not the best painting I've done, but I like pushing the colors a little and I want to experiment with it some more.

Lauren M

Here's a painting of my hilarious friend Lauren. She's rad.
She found that white jacket at a thrift store, she said. I believe it, she's one of my favorite flea market companions ever (please refer to me buying crazy denim jackets).

I had to start over and over again to try to get that Lauren essence, and in my opinion I still haven't succeeded, but it's better than my first few sketches. One day, I shall make a better one!

Breakfast & Breakfast Only, Three Times A Day

I haven't had the time to post anything in a long time, because of crazy projects piling up. Some exciting things are happening, and sooner or later I shall post them as well.

Speaking of exciting, I should state that breakfast food always gets me excited. There are so many things you can call "breakfast", and I'm so into it.
This little sketch isn't new, but I had to post something. I think I painted this because I really wanted bacon and eggs, but didn't have bacon. Can't quite recall. Part of me wants to make a pattern out of this, and print it as wrapping paper, postcard, a t-shirt or something.

I felt like playing with style and ended up drawing myself because I still need to figure out which friends of mine don't mind being caricatured.

More from my landscape class, & more to come...

Back To Basics

I decided to sit in on the amazing Andrew Hem's landscape painting class. It's giving me a good reason to bust out the good old gouache kits, which is very exciting.
This one is the limited yellow/blue/black/white palette.

Bear Number Two

I hope everyone is having a grand 2011 so far!
Here's something I did upon the request of a friend. Remember the bear with the tricycle from last year? Well, she did. "A bear with a gun", she said.
I must advertise though, that I think bikes are much cooler than guns. Just saying.

Going through some old folders to organize my hard drives, I came across this self portrait/sketch I did in school (sometime during 2006/7). I remember this was from a photo assignment from a different class, and I also remember color picking, haha. Can't believe it's been 4 years now! Time flies. Le sigh.
