Inspirations can come from the weirdest things.

Lately, I've been having an "idea block" issue so I was having trouble with this project. I think it's a mild case of senioritis.

Then in class one day, I was looking around to get some ideas. That is when I saw a word, "sperm" written on one of the walls in the classroom. So here, this is what I came up with.

Initially, I wanted to draw something for my mother. This my mother's favorite flower that she wanted me to draw for her. I don't think it's what she expected though..Oh well, I guess she's not hanging it up on the wall, like she wanted to.
Hmm.. what should I name this piece?

Mental Health Day

So on Saturday, I took a break from the craziness, called typical days of my life. I decided to take advantage of the fact that I live very close to LI(or should I say Nassau county?), the quiet and relaxing area. I went to Roosevelt Field Mall, tenth biggest shopping mall in the country, and it was damn crowded, I had to get out of there.

So I went to eat at a place I have never been to: Houstons. I walk in and head straight to the bar area to see paintings on the wall. Voila, there it was. Something I've seen before, something that looks familiar to me. One of my favorite professors' work on the wall. Professor William Low. Again, I had to whip out my camera and take pictures.

This is the painting of the restaurant I went to. I had to step in to the mens room little bit to take this picture.

There were about five of them there. What was amazing was that I've never seen his paintings before. Textures and other details that are hard to tell on computer screen came alive in real paintings.

So after starring at it for about thirty minutes and eating good food, I stepped out and the sky was telling me to enjoy the rest of the day by hanging out.

So I did. What a great day I had.

Now it is Tuesday, and things have been crazy already. I'm glad I took a mental health day to prepare myself for the crazy week I will be having.

The Wait sketch

So this is the sketch for the project that is due in two days. I finally finished it last night. I usually don't like to trace the sketch onto the final board, because I lose so much details while doing that. So I started sketching in my regular sized sketchbook, and sketching smaller than I usually do, when I got to the braided hair/yarn part, I thought my eyes were gonna fall out from looking at it.
Anyway, time to start coloring. It won't be too much work..

This is my latest work. It was fun working on this project. People often become slave to medicine. It is sometimes because of their addiction. but sometimes, it is because their lives depend on it.
