Minor Facts to Enhance Your Viewing Pleasure

i did this as an info block for the senior show.
speaking of which:

it says...

- Wilson Huang was born April 28, 1991.
- He started drawing when he was just a wee four year old.
- His first works were made up of unintelligible monkey scribbles.
- Much of his initial art consisted of cartoons with color pencils and markers.
- In 6th grade he moved on to still life drawings with charcoal.
- In 8th grade he started with painting landscapes with oils.
- He entered LACHSA as a freshman in the visual dept. after middle school.
- Sophmore year on he took industrial design classes at Art Center in coincidence with LACHSA arts classes.
- Winter of senior year he started to work extensively in digital mediums.
- Now it’s safe to say he’s moved on from the monkey scribbling. :]

Senior Show

So it's that time of the year now.
Graduation's coming around, and with it, my school's SENIOR SHOW for the visual dept.
At Lachsa around april-may the senior visuals get to hold their very own gallery space together to showcase their work for a short period of time.
In our case like one short weekend.
But setting up our stuff for the show was pretty fun, i thought.
You should go see it this weekend at the Infusion Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles.
Opening night is this Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

Buuuut if you can't make it that's okay.
At the very least i'm putting up snippets of mine.

almost half the stuff on there you haven't seen yet.
i'll upload them in due time.

Mercenary Thumbnails and Quickies

on spring break now.
i've been finding myself preoccupied with a lot of other things right now,
hence my lack of recent posts.
but yesterday i was like "i have to draw some more"
and this is what came out of like an hour of just idling around
with hi-tec c pens and markers and my sketchbook.

while we are on the art of character design,
i finally bought "the Skillful Huntsman" and "Structura" from Design Studios Press!

happee tymez!!!

my favorite month of the year.
and it's not cause my birthday's in it,
but because a lot of close friends of mine have birthdays in april too.
and the name just screams "HAPPEE TYMEZ!!"
and spring.

and i could definitely go for some ramen right now.
the chinese text says
"ch fan le, tsiao pung yo."
"time to eat now, little friend."
(wow, that sounds so much lamer in english)

this is a stephan martiniere inspired sketch.
some little forest creature he did that was really cool.
this is pretty much the same thing, with slight differences
(since i was drawing it from memory)

april also means spring.
i guess i'm especially looking forward to it this year
cause imma be heading over to mammoth to catch some snow over spring break.
with a couple of friends.
and snowboarding.
before all the snow melts.
