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.

egon schiele

Wow. I bought a big ass book of Egon Schiele drawings and paintings and it is rad to the max. I had heard multiple times about how awesome he was but I'd never really seen his stuff before. He was born in 1890 which I think is crazy. I thought he was from the late 1900's.
I scanned a drawing from the book because it's too small to see.



There's also a drawing he did when he was 15 in there. I thought it was interesting.



Too bad he died at age 28 to a flu epidemic. He still produced a ton of work. I wanna go to Vienna some day to see his stuff in the museum thing there.

a respiratory dilemma

Allergy season started. For me at least. I'm allergic to EVERY plant in the world. A significant amount of plants at least. Damn them and their reproductive activities, polluting my breathing air.

I tried using a pencil for the first time in a long time.



Finals next week. What great fun.

Hey it's 2007. Neat.
School starts up again tomorrow morning, a circumstance which is exceedingly not neat in any way.

Here's a drawing of a girl with her arms behind her back or something. I like the colors.
