Demo Reel 2012




So here is my new 'public' demo reel!
Wohoo a bit of 3D at last.
I definitely like my other version that includes the secret footages better, but unfortunately, there are some materials I can't post on the internet. poo. (not R-rated or anything, just so you know.  haha)

Song by my current favorite group, Cloud Cult.

ART FOR HOPE

So
I have a piece in Viz Medeia X Autodesk Collaboration Charity artbook called ART FOR HOPE.
http://www.viz.com/artforhope
Pieces by Brian and my friend Holly Mongi are also included!

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the people displaced by the Great East Japan Earthquake that struck us on the unforgettable 3/11/11.

It was my pleasure to be able to have a piece to help my country.

Thank you Chris Chung for poking me at the Digital Canvas reception back in May, and the Viz/Autodesk guys who made this possible.  You guys....are...I can't even find a word to express how grateful I am.

Please help us support Japan!

Study at the Frick Collection

Ever since the Rembrandt exhibition sketch that was cut short, I had the burning face-sketch urge, so we went to one of my favorite museum, the Frick Collection.  We woke up a bit early to make it to the "Pay what you want" time (Sunday 11am~1pm), and had a nice afternoon sketching.  Woohoo!

Boy I like drawing faces.  They're so interesting.
As I do a lot of the faces for MAD (Cartoon Network), and used to sketch a lot in the subway a lot, I have grown to like examining faces.

Model Session on iPad

Since I wasn't intending to go to the model session, I didn't have my sketchbook with me---
but I had my iPad! 
It turns out I ended up having an interesting exercise.  I usually tend to concentrate on the details when I draw on paper, but since I don't have as good control on the tablet I was able to look more at the overall shape.  Still prefer analog sketching for these kind of things, but it may be fun to do this time to time.
