Banner design

Sigh. I wanted to make a new banner for my blog, but I'm not sure how to do that...
Can someone be kind enough to share that information with me? haha

But here's the design that I wanted to put up.

I posted it up on my facebook so it wouldn't go to waste :(

More Ms. Fortune Concepts and LA Film Festival

Here are some more Ms. Fortune concepts that I've been working on. I've put some more details on the environment and some more color studies. In this scene, Luke and Love have their first interaction with Ms. Fortune.

Yesterday, I went to the LA Film Festival with my cousin and a fellow film classmate from RISD, Grace. Although Grace and I already watched Laura Colella's "Breakfast with Curtis" in class, we were both ecstatic to watch the finished edit of the film. It was great to see all of the characters/actors of the film in person. I seriously thought their personalities were the same. It was great. 

Now, today was just like any other day, however, I thought I would observe how my cousin, Luke, would eat. Haha, I must say, he eats with quite a personality. While he stuffs his mouth with as much food as possible, he still tries to make the effort to make a statement or whine about something. Nonetheless, he is still a cutie. I'm just waiting for the day when he's gonna be my height and be as tall as his dad.

On Monday's and Tuesdays, I usually stay at Art Center library and head to class around 5:30. I must say that the environment of Art Center and RISD are really different. I wouldn't say one is better than the other, but I feel a different level of professionalism and seriousness. Perhaps it's because of the older students? But, I'm not gonna lie. RISD feels alot homier. The one thing RISD doesn't have are mountains and nature. The nature here is so pretty.  

My classes are going great so far. I really enjoy learning more about storyboarding and the details of cinematic compositions. Unfortunately, my teacher wasn't able to come to class so we watched a lecture that Kevin provided for us instead.

The Ms. Fortune

This was part of my doodles of the day. 
She's a character that the protagonists would meet in the beginning of their journey, but warns them of the grave danger that lies ahead of them.

Cousin Characters

My little cousins and I were brainstorming for a potential movie that I would make in the near future and they suggested that I should make a film about them. Not a bad idea. So I started to sketch them out and discovered that these guys are full of character. hahaha, these guys are literally human gems to me.

A Peaceful Sunday

My second Sunday of California has arrived, and I was...bored...haha

I went to a church called YNCC, but I ended up going to their "Young Adult" service. Apparently, there's one for college students, and keep in mind that this church was huge. If this isn't a mega church...then I'm scared to see one or even in drive in it. While I was driving there, I realized that the 110 N. freeway is super confusing and jammed all the time! I definitely prefer the 2 freeway.

Then at night, I had little Disney karoake night with the kids. Love really liked singing to Mulan's "Honor to Us All".

When the kids finished their fight for the fluffy pillow, they finally fell asleep and the night got 10 times more quiet and peaceful except for one. At the corner of my eye, I could see Yepe (my aunt's dog) turning over and rub itself on the ground. Apparently, he gets super hyper at night for no reason. It's funny because all that dog does in the day time is sleep so I guess he's just trying to burn off all his energy into one shot. haha crazy dog.

Cleaning and Grocery Shopping

On Friday, the kids and I followed David to Art Center and had an okay time at the library. The kids seemed to be tired, but they managed to keep themselves entertained. After David's class, we went to the new apartment to do some pre-moving cleaning. It's unbelievable how the previous owners left the place in such mess, and things still needed to be fixed like the floor and the mailbox.
Then today, we pretty much stayed at home until we went grocery shopping with my aunt. While we were waiting for my aunt to finish shopping, there was a little shop that sold korean pins and keychains. I bought Lovey a purple shoe keychain that she spotted on the rack and she attached it to her purse that was given from her mom.

Summer Journal Entries

Summer vacation at Cali!

Starting tonight, I've decided to keep a daily summer journal of what I do in little sketches. I've finally gotten the pressure pen option on my tablet so now drawing in photoshop got 10 times more exciting!

I've been spending much of my time with my little cousins, Love and Lukey, these days, and they are just filled with energy and crazy, imagination. Today, we watched Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit. The kids and I had a blast. Then at night, Love decided to take out her old bead kit, and organize her tiny, plastic beads of butterflies, flowers, spheres, and leaves in their rightful places. The way Lovey picked up the beads with such care and delicacy was so cute to watch. Then Luke on the other side of the bed, was clinging like a monkey belching out random sayings from movies or tv shows.

I posted up two versions of Love's drawing. I prefer the line drawing over the colored version. I think I might've killed it with the color. How can I fix this problem??
