Finally

Hey here's some life drawing and stuff. I've got some more drawings that I like but they're in Mike's office place.

Well, I'm here

CalArts is cool. And hot. Ridiculously hot. It was like 115 degrees one day this week or something. It's actually been a lot nicer these past few days.
I was being stupid and couldn't get my computer to turn on until now and now that it's on and I have a chance to update this thing, I don't really feel like doing anything. Uhhh. Well. I'll start posting work as soon as I start making some I think.
Classes start on Monday. I'm slightly terrified but I think I'll be fine.

Bababababa baba bahh

That's how the saxophone goes in the song I'm listening to at the moment.

I felt like drawing. I guess it's me. Whenever I start drawing without thinking I just end up drawing myself. It's sort of annoying but I guess I can't really expect myself to just make up a whole individual person out of nowhere. The hands were bugging the hell out of me so I stopped.

It's summer

School is over. Wow.
I haven't been drawing much. Dunno why. I expect I'll be doing quite a lot of drawing in a few months. Maybe a break is good.

This is an idea I've had in my head for a while. It's a made up album cover.

Allergies suck.

Guhh I reaaally wish I could have gone to the open show. If CalArts was in San Francisco, it would make life much easier. It would also save me from having to live in Valencia for four years. Ohhh well.

I finished this huge ass painting.
I've done so many self-portraits for my stupid AP art portfolio thing. It's almost over though. High school is almost over too. How wonderful.

MUSIC!!!!

Okay so I realized you can use html tags in these posts.

Anyways. Here's a song. I used my midi keyboard, guitar with crappy mic, and some drum loop from garage band.
I'm not totally sure what I'm doing music theory wise. Oh well.



Music is rad.

tuesday

Okay here's what I was going to post yesterday.
Us CSSSA people were really loud and annoying I bet.
I was contemplating going and finding people in the cubes and I actually walked up there but I decided not to bother anyone especially when I saw all those curtains up over the cubes which seemed to say "hey I'm trying to finish a film here, go away."

CalArts in the morning.


CSSSA kids. This photo is weird. It's like I'm exuding some magical force that's making everyone else all blurry.

monday

CalArts was cool but sorta disappointing. It was like hey we're great and stuff okay bye come back in fall.

I did this at school with a mouse.

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

oh hey

I'm 18 now.
Exciting.

Wondercon

Me and Amelia met in San Francisco land to go to Wondercon.
the reason:
BRAD BIRD



I was excited fort he film because of Brad Bird's involvement, but a bit unsure about the premise: a cooking rat. But after seeing some footage and listening to Mister Brad Man talk about it, I'm much more excited about it. He also said that his next project would be in live action. He then went on to say that, unlike a lot of animation directors who move to live action, he has no intent of abandoning animation forever.
YAY.

And here's some assorted photos I took the rest of the day.

Rarrgh

Waiting waiting waiting hey a self portrait.



I'm pretending to be Egon Schiele. Rofl.

More confusion

I heard the mail truck go by.





So apparently they got my portfolio at the beginning of January even though I sent it at the end of november and they decided to tell me two days ago.

Lemon Demon

This is sooooo awesome. Lemon Demon is super fantastic.
I would have posted the real video uploaded by the real people onto google video but I can't seem to get it to work. This one works though.
Sirose told me she's good friends with Neil at CSSSA I believe. Super fancy.



And I drew a thing.

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Heyyyyyyyyyy

Little Miss Sunshine is a mega good movie. I like it.
I decided to do some drawings of some shots I liked. I haven't done this since CSSSA. I really wanted to do the one where Paul Dano runs down the hill screaming but I can't make myself draw anymore right now.





Here's some life drawing.






And a drawing from mega long ago. Gundam Wing was on Cartoon Network and I loved it.



Also, I found this on youtube. I think I like it more than what they ended up with in the actual video. Every single Gorillaz video off of Demon Days besides Feel Good Inc that I've seen has had the sound off-sync. That bothers me greatly. I'm susupicious that they're not even synched properly at all.

Urgghhh

I got an email from CalArts saying they didn't get my high school transcript. It said that they did get my $70 fee even though I met the preferred deadline so it was cheaper...
Sent out a new transcript today but the zipcode was wrong. Gonna try again tomorrow I guess.
I want to explode kinda. In a passive sort of way. Or something.

I scanned the cover page of my new sketchbook. I drew it at a Japanese restaurant.

Lies and Trickery

I got something in the mail today from CalArts. I was super excited for a second. HOLY CRAP THIS IS IT! IS THIS IT?!!? And then I started thinking, hmmm this package seems kind of large for just a letter. After ripping through the perforated cardboard, the package's contents were revealed. A catalog. With information about the 2003-2004 year.
And I cried to the heavens WHY!?!??!!??!? WHY DO YOU TEMPT ME SO?!?!?! THIS ISN'T FUNNY. POOOOP TOWN!!!

Awesome Music Videos

We watched this one at CSSSA and it's one of my favorite things ever. At Least it's not the End of the World by Super Furry Animals.




This is Hoppipola by Sigur Ros.



I'm having my worst allergy attack of the year so far. It's bad. Bad bad. Bad.

Monday, February 05, 2007

Moo

So hey I drew kinda good today. Charcoal and acrylics with water are fantastic.

DEERHOOF

Okay so my friend showed me this band called Deerhoof and they are like mega fantastic.

This is them playing "This Magnificent Bird Will Rise". They had a keyboard player on the album version but it still sounds awesome with just three members.



The quality is lame on this one but it's fantastic still. "The Perfect Me" is the song.



Also, here's another life drawing thang.
She looks like a female version of this guy I know. Weirds.



I'm getting tired of using small paperness. I'm going 18x24 again tonight. Woooooo.

CALARTS STUFF

Well Sam coaxed me into putting my portfolio online.

Here it is.

And here's the little animated thing I sent too. It's mega short.

CLICK

There was also a sketchbook totally filled up back to front but that would take too long to scan.

Second Semester

First semester is over. Finally.
January is almost over. Which means that it's almost February which means it's almost March. Argh.

In other news, me and Amelia went to National Portfolio Day in San Francisco two days ago. We went to the Academy of Art and School of Visual Arts review tables but of course the main event was CalArts. Leo Hobaica was the reviewer guy which was a surprise I guess. He said my work was "...good," and then he talked about what I should do if I don't get in for a long time. And wobbled his head. I didn't have any of my 18 x 24 drawings which probably would have given him a better idea of what I can do but they're at CalArts right now (I hope).
Anyways, while we were walking back to the Ferry Building where Amelia got here from, we found a tree with a bunch of parrots on it. And people feeding them. I took some cool photos of Amelia with parrots on her but I can't find my camera. I'll put them up eventually.

Aaand there was no school today because we just had finals. I didn't do like...anything all day. But there was life drawing at the community center. The model was mega ripped. He was cool to draw.





Aaand here's a photo of all us kids from CSSSA I thought I'd post.
