I had a meeting with an accountant this week. Just like going to the mechanic, they make you feel like you're 4 years old again, shaking their head at you for not knowing the exact definition of inventory, business renter's insurance vs. renter's insurance and all that. If I knew that stuff, I wouldn't need help! Maybe this will teach me to be a bit more patient with my clients as well.

Now where was I?

Oh yeah, I'm not the most organized person. I would like to say that I am at least organized enough to function in my life independently without any major catastrophes (so far!). That’s all well and good, and of course my organization skills could be improved upon. I understand the benefit of being very organized, however I would want creating art to be paramount in my life, and I’ll just go ahead and let organization fall to a distant second or third on the priority list. Fine with me.

Back to the chaos! Another drawing moving the story forward. Have a lovely winter weekend.

Quick one

Hello hello!
Here is the next drawing for the robot story. Kind of in a rush but just checking in to say hi!

The Mender


Back to the boy and robot story, i think that I have a good bend to it that will take it into the direction that i want it to go. Of course, I thought of it in the shower this morning. The shower is the place where I do my most important and critical thinking. Why is that? Maybe that its the point where I feel that I am preparing for the rest of the day? Maybe its getting back to the primordial roots of evolution, being enveloped in warm water. Not sure. Frank and Ollie (amazing Disney animators) said that they would get their inspiration from shaving with the electric razor in the morning.

Here's a start to the process, more drawings to come. Stay tuned!

1 cup of New Year, a sprinkle of resolutions, a dollop of drawing


Its 2010! A new year is upon us, and like a lot of people
at the beginning of the year, I am excited to have the opportunity to re-evaluate my life directions and choices, expand on others, and to get rid of others. For the past two years I have been really trying to follow through on my resolutions with some success! So this year will hopefully be no exception.

First and foremost, I plan on spreading out my activities a bit. I got just too bogged down with work in the past few months and have been unable to breathe ( hence the absence of posts!). It is dangerous to list out your resolutions, as you may look back at unattained goals and feel like a failure. So I feel that it is good practice to also be flexible with your goals.

I’ll post more about my goals here to follow, but I wanted to include a few sketches since this is an art blog and I like to draw and share!

Here is a random sketch that I liked of a monster for no reason other than fun:

And here is a sketch from a story that I’ve been formulating in my mind about human vs machine decision making. Here I am just playing around with future worlds. I think that it’s a bit odd to think that humans will be comfortable living in big cold shell-like ships. I think that would last for about ten seconds and then people would start dreaming about the sun and plants and earth tones, comforting things. Why wouldn’t we expect a future world to be more comfortable than the one that we are living in now? Anyways, it needs work, and I’ll do some more iterations, most likely after the robot story.

Have a good week!
