Turning all electronics and lights off and unplugging everything (cept my fridge) for an hour... such a great thing. I've actually become quite fond of drawing b lamp light. i've done it a few times with power outages.

Well i'm cheating a little my laptop is on, but not plugged into anything. Maybe i'll go on a bike ride....

So for one of my projects I've created these characters that are street urchins with sparrows, hence my new fondness for my company Sparrow & Urchin (under construct) Well I plan on making my own dolls but here's the custom munny i'm making in the mean time.

and there's a story that was the inspiration.
oh old timey language.

also found this inspiration
"I also vaguely remember how street urchins would kill the sparrows flying in plenty across the street and roast them in the little fire built with the dry twigs and leaves. Then they would clean the roasted bird, sprinkle salt and chilli powder and eat. For them, it was like a hunt in a jungle. A hunt in a jungle of rows and columns of tiled roof houses. Tiled roof houses can give space to these sparrows to build their nests. Concrete built, spacious bungalows could not accommodate these little sparrows. Is it not really sad? How man has become selfish to deprive some space even for little sparrows who are angel like. These street urchins will not listen even if the elders shout at them for doing so. For them it is a kind of adventure. Striking a sparrow with a single stone from their catapult is a feat that demands admiration from their friends."

So, it's been a while since I posted but here it is.

Last weekend myself and a few friends drove to chicago to meet up with some ccs alumni, Sam and Rachel Conant, who are both marvelous illustrators and designers. It was so great meeting up with them, and the wealth of information they gave us was truly remarkable. Also we got to see the different neighborhoods of the city as we went to a art show of "Book Band". We also got to see some other recent alum wayne and mike. It was great.

And here is a quick image of my paintings I'm working on, I also just got to shoot some reference today for my next piece. Yay!

Some sketches of works in progress.
Sketch for my silkscreen poster, it's for the potluck this semester, still need to figure out the type.
Sketch for the companion piece to m kingfisher (which I will post sometime), she's a queen trigger fish.

I think this will be one of my last head shots, I really need to show what I can do with painting the body (and prove I can!)

It's hilarious but hard to watch all 5 minutes, oh those japanese.


the wonderful Maureen O'Brien is painting a beautiful piece where she used me in it! heehee. Her idea is "about solar panels giving people energy/new ideas instead of giving energy to buildings and material objects.". And she chose me for the portrait because of my values concerning the environment.
visit her blog!!!

Last night I was awaken to a ring of my phone saying I had a message. Groggy I check my messages and I have a lovely voice message from Dave Chow... but it's almost midnight. weird. Sounding delightful as always the messages informs me that... I got into the Society of Illustrators 2008 Student Competition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe it. Myself and two other CCS students (James Noellert and Mike Burdick) were part of the 130 students honored with this great aknowledgment. I'm ready for someone to pinch me, I just can't believe it. My piece chosen was the "Snake Scarf" painting. Look it's HERE! >>LOOKIE!

I'm just so excited and amazed. I guess since I look at my stuff everyday I really don't appreciate it, but from fresh eyes is the true vantage point of our art.

I just cannot believe I have this honor.
