Girl Power!

I did this illustration for a friend Natasha who is leaving Kung Fu Panda: the Legends of Awesomeness  to go work on the Legend of Korra. As you can see, she likes kittens, french fries, anime, vegetarian food, diet coke and feminism. Good bye Natasha, flamey O.

"Straight A's"

It's been a loooong time since my last post. I've been busy with my other projects, work, and just life in general. I have many more Shiitakesan stories written but not illustrated yet so hold on to your seat!

Prometheus(NO SPOILER)

It's been a while since I last posted.  I apologize to all you 3 people that happened to stumble upon my blog by accident. I had been incredibly busy the last 3 week. I finally had some down time so I went to see Prometheus... It was visually stunning and the story was entertaining but for some reason it left this unsatisfying, confusing taste in my mouth afterwards. I figured out why but I'm not commenting on this blog in case you haven't seen it. If you want to know all the answers check out this article.

Old/hip chinese man

When you drive through San Gabriel Valley, you will notice that there are A LOT of Asians who have immigrated recently. Last Sunday, I was at a stop light on San Gabriel Blvd and Valley Blvd, waiting for the light to turn green and I notice that there was this little tiny guy crossing the street. He was probably about 4 feet tall. And then I noticed that he was an OLD MAN.  He was wearing his baseball hat sideways, a baggy t-shirt, baggy pants and even walked with a limp.  I would say he's either the most hip, senior chinese citizen or some old man accidentally dressed up fashionably without knowing it.  Either way, he made me feel like I found a $20 bill in my jeans before washing them. Sideways smile.

Storyboard Deadline

I have been working too much lately because my storyboards are due on monday.  Because of that I haven't been able to do things that I used to do normally like doodling, shopping online, leaving obscure comments on facebook,  or researching products to shop online.  I have many plans after I turn in these boards. First, I'm going to lie down on the floor, face down, and relax.

Dora vs Swiper

My kids love to watch Dora. In case you don't know, Swiper steals things from Dora and she says "Swiper, No swiping!" But for some reason, all I hear is "SWIPER, NO SNIPING."   This is what happens when child like innocence goes away and cynicism takes over your heart, soul, and mind.

Story time is FUN!

The other day, I took my 2 kids to the local library for story time while my wife got a haircut. It was filled with little babies that think books are for chewing, I was amazed.  Also, their mommies looked nothing like them. I am assuming those are either 1) nannies 2) really nice ladies who can't get enough of babies.  One day, when my book is finished, I'd love to have these babies chew on it.

Korra the Explorer

Did you guys hear that Avatar is coming back to Nickelodeon?! The new Avatar series is called Korra the Explorer and airs on April 14th! I can hardly wait! I saw the trailer on Korra Nation and the show looks 10 times better than the previous series.  My only concern is whether Diego is coming back or not.  No Diego, no Korra.

self portrait

This is me.  I like to draw with a gigantic sharpie on a large piece of paper.  And I'm fast like a rabbit, only if there's a carrot dangling in front of my face.  I chose rabbit simply because  I was born in the year of the rabbit. So if you calculate correctly you can figure out what year I was born.

I always thought how convenient it is for Spiderman to take off his mask in movies so we, the audience, can see the actors 'emote'.  If I were Spiderman, I'd never take off my mask. Do you have any idea how much identity happens EVERY DAY!? That's why I shred all of my mail before I throw them into trash. Anyway, I thought it would be funny to see a reverse Spiderman effect: Peter Parker wearing nothing but the mask.

Carson from Downton Abbey

I've been watching Downton Abbey, another great series with so many great characters.  I'll probably be doing other characters in the future.

long hair

My hair is getting long.  And it's not even 'cool' long hair, it's uneven.  I guess it's time for an oil change. Maybe I'll get a haircut too...

Radio Controlled Car

When I was about 9, I was obsessed with RC cars.   I had the toy RC cars but they were too slow.  I wanted the ones where you buy the kit and build it yourself but my parents thought they were too advanced for a 9 year old.  Plus they cost about $300 which is astronomical to a kid.  They wouldn't buy one for me.  Later that year, I asked Santa for to bring me one... he didn't.  The drawing above is what I used to dream every night until I turned 13.

Valentine's Day

Yesterday was Valentine's day. I kept seeing my friends posting their original cards that they made for their significant others on facebook so figured I'd make one too.  My wife was very happy to receive it.  This is not the card I made for her. You can't see it because it's not yours.

Exit through the gift shop

I just saw a documentary film called 'Exit through the gift shop'.  Wow, what a fascinating film.  I don't want to talk about it but if you have not seen it, I highly recommend it.  Well, I do want to talk about it. I want to talk about it BADLY but I won't because that might ruin for some of you who haven't seen it.

sketch book

I've been trying to bring my sketchbook everywhere I go and sometimes I draw in it.  The problem is not the people who can't seem to stay still.  It's my darn hand that would not move the way I imagine.  

black swan with color

I normally don't do dark drawings.  I didn't really care for Coraline or Corpse Bride. I know a lot of people really like them but they are just not my cup of black coffee.  I like funny and cute drawings and this is what happens when you mix the two.  It's confusing. No more dark drawings for me.

Black Swan

My interpretation of the movie in one picture.

Space Suit

I was once promised when I was a kid that by the year 2000, we'd all be wearing space suits like this.  I'm still waiting.

Ultra Agent

I used to watch Ultraman, Ultraman 7, and Ultraman Ace as a kid.  I don't remember what they actually looked like but they looked something like this in my head.

Top Heavy

I work near downtown Burbank and I always walk by a place called BAC.  That's short for Burbank Athletic Club. I'm assuming that they only have equipments to work out your upper body because 9 out of 10 guys that go there look like this.

Enter the year of the Dragon!!

Deadwood sketch

So I've been watching the HBO series "Deadwood". It took me 2 seasons to realize how these actors are so rich in appearance I finally picked up my pencil to draw.
