The Scorpion

Attempt to do Mike Mignola's style (failed). 
Subject is surely derived from the notorious satin jacket from a recent released crime movie. Like my other recent posts except the one prior to this.


Dead Animals on the Street..

Recently, I saw dead animals on the street while I'm on my way to school.
While I was walking to school earlier today (or.. yesterday afternoon to be precise) I saw this scene above a block from my apartment. Poor squirrel! Being hit & run and eaten by the crows :( There were three crows while I walked passing by.
 It was just exactly last week, that I saw a dead cat laid down on the grass, within the same block where I saw the gory scene of the squirrel. This cat had his/her eyes opened, and the throat was slit and there were a couple blood lines on it. The cat was pretty big too. It quite really shocked me, seriously made me wonder what actually happened to this poor cat.
And it was only a month ago that I found this cute small bird.. dead, on the sidewalk on campus. I moved it to the grass area behind the big pine tree, the so no one would step on it since the pavement of the sidewalk was also gray in color :( I didn't know how could I bury it without trespassing others properties. I took a picture of it with my not-so-good phone camera. Made me sad.  



This was my brother more than 10 years ago. Almost every evening, he would sit on the floor for such a long time and spin the basketball on its Y axis without moving anywhere else. While the basketball kept spinning and spinning really fast, he'd stare at it intensely. I had no idea how he pulled it off - I tried to spin it like he did --> instant failure! And sometimes he did it with out frying pan too! He was a weird baby, like his sister I guess.


Terminus - character & shot sketches

 Did this over the weekend for an independent drama short called "Terminus". The storyboard was done very quick just based on the shot list I was given. More info about the film can be viewed here and here's the Kickstarter link!




From the Artists at Bento Box :)

Huge thanks to everyone for the awesome drawings!! Now I can sell these on eBay.. jk. NEVER will.
We were drawing on napkins over lunch one day.. Perry just unstoppably kept drawing perfectly. I loved this drawing by him so I kept it with me!
Dave drew me haha. He drew it with his left hand too but he's right handed :O
Really cool send-off drawing from Devin!
Another drawing by Perry, this time in my sketchbook :)
It's a Mickey Belcher! :D by Wes Archer!!
Burger Spirit and Free Burgers! by Phil Hayes and Wes :)
I was working on the show Bob's Burgers with those great artists above and learning so much from them. The show is about Bob Belcher and his family running a burger restaurant. It's aired on Fox so you should check it out!



Vancouver, BC. View of North Vancouver from Vancouver Convention Center, 3rd Floor. Yea I was there having a blast at SIGGRAPH 2011!
La Jolla Beach, CA - stopped by there after I skydived (tandem) in the morning!

I added the plaid pattern on the 1st image after I scanned this.


Some Original Sketches from Don

Don McCullough has always been phenomenal illustrator and artist, and everybody back in college knew him. I miss hanging out with him also flipping his sketchbook pages and blown away and inspired, just like back in the day.
He gave me some of his original sketches (again) when I saw him few days ago :) He just ripped the pages off from his sketchbook before I had to go.
He signed it. "Love, Don"
This image is on the other side.
He drew me saying "Don forever" -_____-
The hand-made-printed envelope that he put those sketches in so I could carry them back home safely. And he sneaked in a poster of amazingly done image of Hellboy by Mignola :) Thank you so much, man! In the mean time of seeing Don's artwork at gallery shows, check out some of his art on his blog.


Go See the C's!!

The student films from 181C class is being screened tomorrow evening! This event is purely non-profit and just for final of a class purposes. The copyright characters (Mighty Morphin Power Ranger, Batman, Jason Vorhees?) are copyrighted by the rightful owners.


Wetwork, Inc.

I did these two posters, helping my screenwriters friends in our school. It's a very fun dark comedy feature script. The writer, Spencer Ballou, and JOey, who worked with the artists to set these posters up, already knew clearly what they wanted, so it was really fast working on these. And special thanks to Jackie Marion for her great tips on font. She's the professional graphic designer for real!
The screenwriter showcase was last night, where Spencer and other winners received their awards, and so did Aaron Sorkin, for a distinguished achievement in screenwriting. The special guest who introduced Mr. Sorkin was Armie Hammer, and the host was Mike Werb. He's a great host - very clever. Congrats to all the winners and award recipients. My friend and I had great time!
