Licky Fun Time & My First Published Shit!

So I originally wanted to call this entry "F%&$ This SH$%" but decided against it as my busy working weekend did improve near the end. The above illustration depicts an average shit day of work, and no, I am not really exaggerating any facts in this picture. There was a kid hanging off by his teeth on my arm, and a bunch of girls who hug you all class, and the kids who make other kids cry and...ugh. Kids. So innocent and yet so devilish. But they provide excellent inspiration and I learn something new from them every day I guess. And is that shirt not amazing??? I don't actually own it but have seen about 2 walking around town and really want to find it. Yes Engrish. I'll find an actual scanner to make this image worthwhile as my camera yet again decided to screw me over..Any who on to bigger news! Dun Dun DUn.....

Ta DA!!! "Applied Arts" Magazine released an article about Sheridan Fundies and featured my ugly mug and some of my work and an interview!!My first release I suppose. I'm pretty pissed off at myself for submitting those particular pieces as samples of my work cause in retrospect they are still kinda meh.

An Update from China!

Hey everyone! Haven't updated in over a month so I figured I'd let all of you know what I'm up to. None of these sketches are really finished except the last one, but I figure it's better than posting nothing? Unfortunately even though I do have plenty of time, I haven't spent a lot of it drawing as people are still getting to know me, taking me out, coming over, etc. Not much time to myself yet really. But I had a few quiet days where I went on a hike to a giant ass mountain 20 minutes away, brought my watercolours and sat there sketching for a while (last image). I haven't yet built up the courage to do the same in the city, especially as every time I stop, someone pulls out their cellphone camera and it gets pretty damn annoying. But overall life is interesting as one of the only foreigners in Taizhou. My city, Huangyan, is only about 1 million, the teaching job is...heh, a job, and the lonely life kicks ass. Now I have to kick my ass in shape to keep up with all my talented friends in animation!

pr: sorry for the blurry quality but my camera is not the best and I don't have a scanner here that works well..
