I'm really happy with the way it turned out - though I just finished it so that will probably change by tomorrow, lol. I'm glad I was able to make some work about this movie, it's my favorite movie. I watched it in theaters on my twelfth birthday, but I didn't get to finish it because my stepdad and stepbrother thought it was boring so they made me walk out.

Also, I'm on Twitter now yay


I am a terrible person.

I have not posted since February, wow.
Well, last time I posted some shirt designs that were up for voting, and The Party was picked up and is now almost sold out at Threadless(!). I've also gone through a little rebranding so I'll be redesigning this blog soon.

I will be attending ICON7, the Illustration Conference in Rhode Island this Summer. Right now, I'm focusing on redesigning business cards, stickers, and a portfolio book. The conference is in 3 weeks so I need to get things done fast.

Here's an art trade I just finished with my friend Betty Huang. She gets a nice print of this and I get a sweet Artichoke cup :3


Long time no Tee

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates, I've been really busy - but I promise to update more regularly from now on.

Right now I need your help though - I need your votes on three designs I have up:

The Party - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

Cat Pirate's Life For Me - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

Neon Tiger - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

Hey Bros

Hey guys! So I haven't uploaded in a while, but I've been working on lots of stuff.

This is a commission I did for school. I designed the shirt for the Student Governments.

This one I made for the Threadless Temporary Tattoo challenge. I wanna make more like these; Raccoons, dogs, sloths . . . 
I'll re-purpose this as a t shirt graphic later. Stickers too!

I have a bunch of other projects that aren't quite finished, so I'll post those later.
I wanted to make my Tumblr into my personal website, but I think it's better if I make a Cargo. Maybe I'll ask for a year's fee for Christmas.

ALSO, I'M A FREAKING SEMIFINALIST IN THE ADOBE DESIGN ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS. If I make it to the finals they'll fly me to China for $FREE$

So wish me luck guys.

This is for Society 6's first limited edition zine: Whiteout

I made the piece based on their definition of White out:

"Whiteout is a condition of diffuse light in which visibility and contrast are severely reduced and there are no reference points at all, leaving the individual with a distorted orientation."

   It's essentially a speed-painting. I knew that I wanted to only make the mouth visible, so I played around a bit until I came up with this. I needed something to fill in that black space so I just put a glowing white orb in the middle, which kinda looked like the moon, with the borders between the black mass and the face being the waves. 


Speed Painting

My friend Millie made a digital speed painting blog. I'm glad she did, it's good practice!
This took me about 2-3 hours and it's from Robyn's "Dancing On My Own Video."
