Viscom 3 and Sad Sad News

Finally had my first class for the term. Feels almost like Vis 2, only this time we'll work in PS. Here's a fun little tidbit from the class.


Nooooo car accident! Big rig pulled a hit n' run on me around 1:40 last night and knocked me into a bunch of traffic cones... I'm glad to be alive but... Such a downer... I love my car. I've been in other unhappy and disastrous accidents before and it's always brought me out alive... Such a good car I'll fix you soon...

Robot Turned Spaceship

I was trying to paint a robot. It didn't come out the way I wanted so I turned it a weird ways and pretended it was a spaceship.

1st of 3rd Term

No classes yet but I spent most of the day doing some doodling, fooling around, and meeting people. The last thing was inspired by watching my friend Alex Liclican work on one of his assignments using a flattened hard round brush with no flow/opacity transfers.

3rd Term!

3rd term at Art Center starts this week!

Saturday night we celebrated the last moments of our break with a small Art Center party at a friend's house. Happy MLK Jr. Day, and see you guys at school!

Skull Sketch

Teaching some middle schoolers how to draw a skull for work Sunday morning. I demoed this for them while I sat next to them.

I'm totally not meant to teach middle schoolers how to draw haha. Normally I teach little kids younger than 7, and their subject matter is simple enough. Whenever I'm trying to teach middle schoolers I feel like all the stuff I'm telling them is probably too advanced and flying way over their heads.I definitely love teaching and sharing with them regardless though.

Good night everyone!

Daniel's Things Study

Daniel Chavez makes such a huge impression on me as an artist. HOW DOES HE PAINT LIKE THAT? Leading to this post n' piece.


And his... And you can find his blog here.

Went a little bit more than trying to somewhat emulate someone inspirational this time and just took the idea and painted everything else from scratch. Of course I came nowhere near... School starts real soon!



If only I had the money to go boardiiiing...

Viscom2: Rendering the Final

My Viscom2 final isn't worth scanning and showing anymore cause it's been through quite a bit after fall term ended. But I did manage to find a photo on my laptop of me working on it. Pencil, Copic, template, chalk, move template, chalk again, rinse, repeat...

It's a GUNDAM!

Fun W/ Graphics and Painting


Not my usual thing to post, but a lot of times I just want to splash some shapes and color.

To, There, and Back: Big Bear!

Group of friends and I decide to head up to Big Bear this past weekend. We barely planned this, but got some money last minute, and then booked the cabin last minute.

We didn't hit any slopes, but we did airsoft in a dried river bed, cooked some hearty food, and had a lot of deep bonding moments, and good old fashioned fun all day and night.

Hope everyone is great. Cheers!

Update to Late Night Quickies

After waking up in the morning the quickies continue!

Late Night Quickies

Late night sketching, first set of thumbnails for the year. Really quick and loose, about 5 minutes more or less each.

I gotta get fast enough to the point where I can just poo out easy-read color environments in less than half an hour. Soooon~

Crispy Rice Sushi

My dad failed at his attempt to make crispy rice sushi today. When I was trying to tell him how do it I thought the best way was to do a sketch/diagram about it. So here's a shoddy 10 minute Photoshop drawing. :P
