God, there's a leak in my room and there's too much goddamn incompetence in maintenance around here to do anything about it, it seems.
So i was too full of calarts-facilities-rage to really sleep last night. Fortunately around 4 am exhaustion beat out rage and i passed out. in any case, between getting up early to go complain to the office and the 4 1/2 hours of sleep i did manage to catch i was too tired to get much good work done today.
I did, however, spend an hour on this instead of making a film :)

and, just for artsy kicks, here it is without the lineart.

You can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish.

Clearly, that's a misconseption...
a page of some sketches, plus a little nay-saying. i don't even really listen to REO Speedwagon, but i'm quite the sucker for the puns, you see ;)

Figured i'd upload some stuff from my film. Just thumbnails and some sketches. It's about a wereseal and a little inuit dude.

And the enchanting ostrich, as promised.

Next week... the dew-eyed Ostrich.

On monday a group of us went to Chinatown (LA) for dim sum. I think it's safe to say that someday court will fall in love with one of the mysterious and elusive dim sum girls.

[EDIT] it seems that i have given Court two right hands... all the better to eat his chicken feet with, i'd say!

So at calarts we've got a class... Math as Art.
Now i dropped out of math halfway through my junior year of high school. Not that i was bad at it or didn't get it, i just couldn't stand sitting through it. Physics is applied mathematics, and i could take that, but otherwise, it's just numbers. While i've come to realise that numbers and the laws of mathematics are as fascinating as the mysteries of he universe, high school math teachers just don't take the time to show you that.
it would just be wasted on most of the high school crowd anyway.
anyhoo, this class here... after so many art classes and so many bullshit art-related classes a basic pre-calc class is kind of refreshing. i've found myself drawing in class and trying to be sneaky about it, just like old times, only now nobody really cares. i'll have my notebook laid just over my sketchbook so that i can still draw but look like i'm taking notes.
it feels really great :)

afterall, who says math can't be fun?

A couple months old, but for lack of anything better to upload, here are some mermaids.

Kelly knows where the truth is. It's right here. THIS is where the truth is.

Ready for Action

So what's an art blog without art, eh?
This blog is now totally ready for action!

Went to Olvera Street yesterday and saw the Chinese lantern festival... which was, i felt, fairly lacking in lanterns...
... except for these.

jolly good. jolly good.

HERE we go.

okay! so.
eventually art will go here. by "eventually" i hope i don't mean more than i a few days from now.
