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.

A little news, I'm told I'm on the "Editor's Choice" this week at Editor's Choice

Another news, Via Alley blogged about my art on their site.

Via Alley, if you are not yet familiar with VA, VA is a really neat art store/zine based in Sydney, Australia, focused on art, design, fashion, books and toys...etc. Check out Via Alley and VA Blog, you will find something you like as much as I do.

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.

brace me

Ouch is a fun character to play with.
