Really decided I should post something on here. I'm actually back in school and learning 3D (the fruits of which you will see later). Occasionally though we still do some 2D stuff. I'll try to post more frequently than every couple years.

Last night I finished reading "The Kite Runner". It was easily one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life. Beautifully written and a gripping story until the very end. I'm in the process of finding some balance in life right now.. My primary focus is to find work, but as mentioned before I hit creative doldrums the last few weeks and was doing everything I could think of to jump start the imagination. Things are slowly coming back to me, and I'm finding it easier to draw and paint again each day. But boy, I won't deny, that film sucked the life out of me...

CGHub is one of the best entertainment art sites out there. Lately I've fallen in love with it. This is a submission to the biweekly drawing jam, the topic was "Hired Gun". I think I'm getting a hang of how to best paint my concepts. Trying to get faster and yet draw better at the same time.
P.S. Reading week is awesome.. but this year is basically just like being in school.

I've upgraded to PENCIL, DOODS! Conte made me love gesture, Nupastel made me love rendering, Pen made me love contour, and PENCIL MAKES ME LOVE THEM ALL COMBINED!
Haha man this is so cool... after years of experimentation, I've decided that the pencil is perhaps the best drafting tool available. I LOVE pencil sketching! I LOVE drawing! I've dropped all those Sheridan style shorthands and am rolling in my own thing. I also started embracing my crap. (heh heh) Ever since I started just accepting my crap drawings I started to improve! Ever since I embraced all the things I normally hid away, I've come to face my own art and I can move forward. Lesson of the day: don't pretend to draw like someone you aren't.

So, I found out at the last minute that there was a Blizzard art contest going on. I have NEVER painted this fast in my entire life - but I am pleased with how it turned out, and even more pleased that I was able to submit! It's been a long time since I've painted something proper, so not only was this a lot of fun to do but also served as much needed practice.

Really sweet girl with a heavy Australian accent. So cute. TSA 8hours
[Update] I am officially a digital painting tutour at school this year. I've actually been wanting to do this for a while but never felt confident enough. Now I am. If anyone (even you 4th years) is interested feel free to shoot me an email (link on the right) and get in touch. Thanks!

I love Avatar The Last Air Bender. Now that that's out of the way..
I forgot to mention that I'll be heading to BlizzCon this year (Aug 21-22)! My brother and I got the physical tickets today (they were hard to get). It is seriously an honour to be going, a dream come true really. Words can't describe how excited I am to meet the makers of my favourite games / cinematics / concepts. Blizzard is the best in the world man. If I shake one of their hands, namely Chris Metzen or Dustin Browder or Samwise, I may need to encase my palm in a bulletproof glass laser beam alarm secured container. It will be a bigger nerdfest than Star Trek / Star Wars conventions combined, but hey - no one thinks I'm cool anyway - I'm nerd to the bone. And stoked.

From TSA last night. I hope to tighten it up later. In other news, I finally got to see Terminator - I don't know what you haters were saying - it was AWESOME!
I will be leaving for California in 2 weeks - totally stoked. Among the many things to do, I'll be touring Warner Brothers studios from one of the head dudes there (a friend of my aunt). Hopefully I'll run into someone famous... like Randolph Lizarda.
