There was a wicked lightning/thunder storm tonight.
I always find them fascinating,
and tonight I received so much comfort and peace from it 
that I took a 2-hr nap.

Hello, Good-Bye.

If any of you have been wondering what my life has been like these days, this is how it's been:

For some reason, there are so many fruit flies in my apartment.
It has become my new hobby to greet them as I do anything and everything.

Marcy--for the inspiration;
and Tyler--for understanding my culture.

Spring Sketching

It wasn't too long ago when I promised myself one page of sketching a day.
I failed most epically.


This is a beautiful portrait of Kevin Newton drawn by my talented left hand.
He has eyes on his chin.
In real life.

Happy Father's Day!

My dad has this thing about putting green peppers in almost anything and everything he cooks.
Sometimes we protest: "Dad, you're putting green peppers in that!?"

I love my dad's cooking.
Happy Father's Day!

Did I Feel Your Eyes Today?

I wanted to learn/practice animating using Photoshop.
It's not much, but it was a big step forward for me. :)

Broski Pride

My brother is a humongous band dork and he recently became one of the 1st trumpeters! :)
I'm so proud of him so I made this little gif for him.

This was my first time making something like this, and I followed the instructions of amazing Anthony Holden.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! :)

My mom used to do my hair like Sailor Moon because she was my hero.
And every time she did my hair, she'd say, "You're a girl. You should at least take a shower once a week..."

2D Special Effects

This past semester I took 2D special effects class. We studied fire, liquid, vapor and explosion.
It was a lot of fun, but really challenging as well.

One Year Older and Wiser Too

Today's my roommate Anita's birthday.
Here's to hoping getting older means getting wiser, too, somehow.
Happy Birthday, Anita!! :)

Me, Myself, and I

 I still don't know much about digital painting, but I'm learning.

p.s. I don't actually look like that.

Colombian Chica :)

I actually don't speak Spanish, but this awesome girl does!

This is Stephanie. We work together.
She's such a cute girl and even a better friend.

p.s. If you want her number, let me know.

Ah, Poop.

It's been forever since I uploaded anything. My bad.

Well, here's a little painting I did of my friends from work, Sarah & Jessica! :)

Love these girls. 
They're awesome!
