Chinese New Year's eve

Dinner at Clyda's. I saw a real hbd flat built in the 80's. Yishun area is really pretty and lively, a true melting pot. Dinner was delicious and Clyda's parents are awesome! Her wardrobe is too. I wonder why she cannot pack her suitcase the way she packs her wardrobe though ha ha ha. I received my first anpao! Too bad it was raining. Some of the old shops still have the old doors and signs. They have payphones too.

Viva la pirateria, siempre!

Ask me again: why should I buy a movie ticket to see these amateurish mistakes???

Give me a Billy Wilder movie, I’d buy a DVD any time!
But this kind of crap I wouldn’t even print it as texture on my toilet paper! - the stupid director was so caught up in making the fancy camera move on Angelina Jolie’s face he completely forgot how to do a simple Over the Shoulder!


 Don’t come and bullshit me saying that piracy is killing you! YOU SHOOT on your own foot every single time YOU CROSS THE LINE! How can a professional cross the line????

p.s. I knew the ending the moment the movie started! It was such an obvious twist, like soooo predictable! The only fun part in the movie was to see the Italian actors get pissed at a dumb tourist speaking Spanish to them!

In Advanced Comic and Illustration class we get to experiment with different mixed media on illustration board.

It's hard to find illustration board in Singapore so I use the closest thing I could find and I gesso over it.

Yesterday I was making a little demo on gesso lift up and how different media react on gesso and why it's always nice to have the board primed with gesso.

Just for the sake of demonstrating materials these little things (about 7 cm in height/length) ended up having watercolor, gold poster color, silver poster color, markers, colored pencils, markers, salt and glaze on it. They took more or less 9 minutes in the making.

New Year's Eve and January first

I post these two albums together just to show how long are the lines to the temple for the first visit of the year.
... and the Japanese aren't even religious (more superstitious), imagine if they believed! But probably superstitions drive men more than faith. Who knows?

In this second album there are also pictures from Shibuya and Harajuku.
I also have sketches to show you and more picture of Ginza that I just received.

NYP - SIDM - Open House - January 2012

This year's Open House was really fun! I usually don't post pictures of myself on the internet but this time around it was too much fun to draw on t-shirt and spend time with the students! :D

Day 7: Shopping day - Akihabara and Nakano.

Here's where I went toy and books shopping: Akihabara and Nakano, along the way we stopped at this station that is supposedly nearby Tezuka Pro and everything around the area is Tezuka themed.

Day 6: Kansai - Here is Kyoto!

I updated the previous albums as well because I had lots of pictures still missing (I still don't have all the Ginza ones) But here's the complete and updated album of my 1 day in Kyoto! Where I managed to check out 7 different things in 7 hours... a record indeed.
