Where the Wildflowers Grow

Another piece I made for the 72 Meeting Street blog, which is now on tumblr for easier following and updates!  I am still playing around with digital because as much as I love the textual qualities of traditional media sometimes it's easier to get something done faster in digital.  Practice practice practice..

Sketch & color study:

Final: 


I miss some of the looseness and values in the color study that got lost when adding texture in the final...  I'll get the hang of it eventually!

Year of the Sheep!

Chinese New Year is this Thursday and it's the year of the sheep!  It's also the end of my benmingnian (year of the horse) so I am supposedly released from my year of bad luck and wearing of red to ward off bad luck (not that either happened).

Here are some sheep-themed postcards I made for my friends!

Happy Valentine's Day!


Another great alternative to number 3 is watching Princess Bride and swooning every time Westley says "As you wish."  I really want to try number 1 but alas I'm allergic to cats.  Anyone who gets the reference in number 2 gets an A+ in my book.

Another piece for the 72meetingst blog!  Had a lot of fun with this one and poking fun of myself.

Earliest Memory

One of the recent assignments for 72 Meeting Street was to depict your earliest memory.  I always think it's very fun to recount and hear other people's earliest memories.  It's a strange experience too as I'm never 100% sure whether I am remembering a dream or an actual memory.  It makes me wonder what I will remember in another 20 or so years.

72 Meeting Street Stuff!

Here are two pieces and sketches of work I made for the 72 Meeting Street blog.  It's good to have a little time to make personal work.  I'll try to be better about making more work this year~  Please check out the work of my ultra talented friends Zoe Bae, Susie So, and Karen Sung who also contribute!
