Holidays Card

merry card 2006

Trying to live the holidays mode

Finished this piece just right on time for the holidays...???

merry muse

I started scratching about this piece since September, put it away for a while and came back to work on it last month. Among all the tragic events happened to me after since (going thru heartbreaks and recovery, and then departed, funeral, then hospital and more recoveries...) and by remembering the time frame I was painting this piece seeing everything went down and I suffered, gives me a feeling, I want to named it, the epilogue of muse. Good bye, Year 2006.

Yesterday was my mom's birthday. She's supposed to arrive home today, but just got a call that she missed her flight. I cant wait to see her tomorrow and give eachother a big hug.

Music listened to at the end -
テレサ・テン (best of all 60's) and MENOMENA (Friend & Foe)

Drawings

My beloved childhood pet, a miniature pomeranian, Doldo passed away in the morning of Nov. 29. 2006

Currently my mind: Blank.

These are drawings for a California clothing company, Von Zipper. These will be printed as artist series t-shirts for summer 2007.

I finally had food, saw the sun. It seems a little different from last week...actually many things had changed since last week. It's now a different life, a life without Doldo.

I haven't seen anyone or gone out with my "goldfish eyes" (caused by crying over and over) except getting the "seasonal" pumpkin pie milkshake from Jack in the Box. (I haven't gotten one for today's yet. i have been having milkshake everyday, 8 days in a row)

My kind friends, the Oslund family came over to pick me up for lunch. TJ, Maren and their almost-3-year old son, Elliot, I can't tell how happy I saw them. They are a wonderful family.

At lunch I ordered pumpkin pancakes (pumpkin again? yeah, I wish I had a pumpkin pie shake to pair with my pancakes)
I couldn't finish them, of course, these food was huge for my stomach that I only drank milk shake for a week. (my reason for picking milkshake: 1. it stuffs me up, makes me don't feel hungry 2. it tastes sweet, enough sugar for the day to cheer up my mood.)

Food, was great, and great to get to see TJ and Maren and got to speak. I've been only able to talk to people on-line or over the phone. Feeling very unhealthy that way. . .

Ouch, The Tree Shaker

Made this Ouch yeti painting inspired by Animal Crossing. I could call it a "fan art" for AC.

Inspired by the money tree. Ouch yeti was hit by coins while he's shaking the tree. Even tho "shaking tree for money" is one of the ancient chinese folk tale, still think its amazing to have such kind of tree in the life what video games give us.

Mac & Cheese Mug Shot

I start eating.

I cooked gyoza tonight.

First thought i could eat 12, made 12, but I stopped at my 8th. I guess my stomach just automatically shrunk in these months.

The rest of those little golden dumplings looked like some sort of mini eels or fish swimming in my soy sauce bowl.

Then i cooked some tea, Oolong tea from Taiwan. Tea are usually great after dinner, especially after greasy food.

Hey the weather is turning cold. I love it, love that I'm wearing scarf, leg warmer and thick socks at home drinking hot tea.

Today I stretched 3 canvases...and I did her. in an unromantic way.

I have nothing related to mac-n-cheese girl. She was just one girl that showed up in my dreams before, she swam in the orange water. She had long dreads.

Yesterday I made a frame for this piece, sand to make it fit. Sprayed the final coat of gloss medium on the top, it looks much nicer now.

Ouch No More

This is a magnet I painted on with cel-vinyl acrylic, based on my character called "Ouch Yeti".
This shows how Ouch overcome all difficulties and has become no more an ouch, himself.
