Keeping up with a blog is kind of tough :P
But I have some time to post up a very small amount of pictures that barely summarize the most chaotic part of my summer. Comicon, Siggraph student volunteering and moving to another apartment all within 2 weeks.
I got kind of sick after all the commotion because I wasn't getting enough sleep.
But it was all very fun. Except for moving -_____-
There's one more month left of summer before I start school at CalArts.
Ahhhh! I'm definitely excited to go but scared at the same time.
I hope I can live up to the school and my peers.
But until then...
I now have 4 gentlemen phone cases. None of them properly fit an iphone :p
So I have one more on the way that I'm slowly working on.
I spotted this painting at Comicon. I want it so bad.
But it's about a thousand something dollars or more ;__;
I also met with Dan Paladin, the creative genius behind synj.net and all that goodness.
And he signed my Behemoth chicken. I actually wish I got a picture with him but I was scared...
The next few pictures are a summary of my time at Siggraph. Being a student volunteer was definitely a great experience. I want to continue to become a volunteer whenever Siggraph is in LA. I believe it is in Vancouver next year. So I don't know if I'll be volunteering.
I'm also very happy that I was able to get a Renderman teapot this year. I thought I would not be able to because of my shifts. But on the last day of Siggraph I ran over to the exhibition hall and stood in line for the teapot. I thought my sandals were going to break. It was a long line but I got one!
I feel like I've been focusing a lot on my Chinese paintings this summer. I've been sketching here and there, but Chinese painting has taken over my summer :P
It's a good thing though because I won't be able to focus on it during the school year.
I've been continuing my practice in dyeing the paper and adding snow or the moon.
I would like to post a screenshot of my CalArts Fall 2010 schedule for my next post.
I'm actually really really excited for school. Sometimes I still can't believe that I'll be attending CalArts.
And I didn't think that I would be getting a Tuberculin and Tetanus shot for the mandatory physical exam that needs to be done before school starts -____-
But as always, I'm looking forward to the journey ahead :)
