Drink away the pain...

...of boredom. Its been about 2 weeks into the summer, and I'm working on some cool projects as well as working at the job. Here's a simple doodle inspired from a friend and the bar.

I saw this chubby baby at work the other day. He kind of reminded me of myself in my younger days. As I grow as an artist, I'm going to try and still be a hungry kid.

Anyways, i did a doodle and tried to mess with SubSurface Scattering (SSS). I've become more aware of color transitions from specular >light> terminator> dark.

Slice of Life

I've been inspired by some people to start recording the awesomeness of life. My grandma is 76 and still working at my family's restaurant. I always tell her she's doing a good job.

Oh yeah, She's over 9000! Get it? She's cutting up some napa veggies.

Sophomore is Year Over!

Ahh... its 1 week into summer and I've been procrastinating from updating this blog. It was a pretty tiring and painful semester for many. I'm glad its over for now. I'd say definitely got my money's worth this year. I can't say I was 100% happy with how the curriculum was conducted. I think my part of my successes this semester were because of the teachings of upperclassmen and peers.

Special thanks to Sam Tilson, Scott Mcwhinnie, Francesco Girodini, Rob Showalter, Uri Lotan, and Matt Sullivan for your generous help, crit and tutorials. You guys rock!

For your entertainment here are some projects from my Ecology of Water class. We had to create campaign posters to promote Crabs which are a sustainable type of fish. Tom by me, Ghaddafi by Mike, and Johnny by Tyler. I'll post my real projects soon...
