coming soon....

Is my new website! I know I have been trying to fix and revamp it for awhile.. and this time I finally got to it! It took me awhile to come up with a new look I like, but I have forgotten how much of a pain in the neck (literally... my neck hurts from all the computing) making website is.... le sigh. Until then, here are some stuff I've done:

speed painting and sketch

The speed painting I just had fun doing the extreme lighting. I realized that I really do enjoy playing with light...

The sketch is a compilation. The guy on the top left (the face) I was really intrigued by his nose... the boy on the right is kind of from life (not really because his mom was with him and I didn't want to look like a creepy person). For him I was intrigued by his eyes (hence the one eye floating near him).

Adding to what I wrote before, I have also decided to enter a competition on a magazine called "illustration." Each month they get an art director to lead the competition, and many illustrators who is chosen in this competition get jobs from this exposure.

I went to and the featured news was Orientation for up coming foundation students.


Time passes....

Here are some stuff I worked on like a week ago, playing around with PS brush. One is loosely based off of my cat and other is a sheep desktop wallpaper.

I am currently working on re-designing my webpage, as well as Fight Asthma Milwaukee illustrations and concept work for a comic book idea. I also want to submit work to some magazines, and I already submitted work for a cat illustration contest (should know the results soon...). My side project (other then the webpage or magazine) also includes some t-shirt ideas and maybe participating in Illustration Friday weekly topic. Until then, maybe I can continue the speed painting!

Oh, and I recently went to a museum and saw collection of old Japanese art (which includes, but definitely not limited to wood block prints) and I continue to be fascinated by how well they painted birds... especially chickens. I would like to do some kind of bird illustration (or sketches..) in the future...

Let's see what happens. ^_^

me and drowning girls

So I was looking at a very talented artists site ( with very nice and inspiring "speed painting" and I wanted to do the same. However, mine turned out to be not-so-speed painting, since I worked on it for like.... 5 days (I mean, short increments each day but..) So here is my not-speed painting:

I had a loose idea of it being under water, and it turned out like this. It ended up being a goldfish girl. I tried to work on one layer for the most of the time in hopes of creating some accidents (hopefully "happy accidents"). I'm moderately satisfied with how it turned out... More to come!
