What I got so far

Not quite satisfied with my results so I guess I am not finished with this piece. The composition seems too boring and something needs to help balance everything out. Too much space towards the left and it just doesn't have that "kick/punch" feeling to it. What I need is more kinetic energy.
But, I figure I'd share what I have so far and my process. Any feedback/advice would be great!

here's the image and half cut stencil.

final stencil

Background layered with Chinese newspaper

The Bruce you see is just a cover to protect the area I dont want splatter on

Layer or yellowish spray

Covered the area again to do this...

...Stencil in my background. Grid pattern with old script of "dragon"

And this is what I have so far.

Feel like I need to update my blog. Since there's nothing for me to update, I'll just share some of my favorite commercials. This time, it's BBDO's campaign, "Ecomagination" for General Electric. If I remembered correctly, G.E. is one of the most pollutant company in the world, and yet they have this commercial. Anyways, I believe there's always a second chance in everything and maybe they want to start things fresh...and through the campaign, they made a believer out of me.

First one, "Jar" 2007:

Second, "Fishing" 2006:

Still GE but different campaign, "Love Story" 2008:

Working on another stencil. Have a pretty good idea of the process for this stencil piece in my head...just hope that I wont forget it :-P But here's the first step. Just have to add a nunchuck and fix it up a little.

So I finished this piece since last week...not too long after the "process" post I put up. Just never got a chance to upload the final piece. But, it's finished now! I call it, "Blow Your Mind Away", 18x24" acrylic and collage on wood panel.

Brandi Milne

An artist that I've recently took notice of, Brandi Milne. She's originally a children book illustrator and you can tell in the video that her artworks are very cute and child-like. Love her bright bold color and the nice thick black outlines. I love lines...anything with nice thick outlines, I'll like it.
If you're in the LA area, drop by ThinkSpace Gallery for her show!

Stop Motion

This guy have too much time. But, it's a great stop motion nonetheless. It's very interesting how he blends the exterior environment into the interior environment, ex. the pool. Enjoy!

Artwork displayed at restaurant

Remember my ox art piece? Well, I framed it and took it to the restaurant I work at to have it displayed there. It's a great opportunity for me to expose my artwork and hopefully it'll lead to something. It's definitely better than sitting at the house with a viewer of one (that would be me). So far I've had good responses from customers and co-workers. Initially I would say 90% of the coworkers didn't believe I was capable of producing this kind of artwork, ha. The location of the artwork have its flaws and advantages. The flaws of that location is the reflections and the lack of light. During the day time, it is washed out by the reflections from the outside (you can see in the pic a whole row of windows and you have to look at it in the right angle just to see the artwork). During night, the restaurant is pretty dark and that also makes it harder for customers to view. And there are no outlets for me to install a light in the nearby area. But other than that, it's located near the entrance and I would say 100% of the customers dining in that side of the restaurant will see, and that side of the restaurant consists 70% capacity of the whole restaurant. And that wall suits perfectly for my artwork, it's about 1.5-2ft bigger and it frames my artwork proportionally.
I built the frame with left over lumber that my dad collected while my neighborhood was still under construction. Contractors would just throw away left overs, what a waste! And we literally have hundreds of 2x4s in the garage and I put them to good use. I use them to make frames and stretcher bars for my canvas and whatever stuff needed for around the house. It's just good to put those lumbers into good use rather than in the dumper.

New painting done recently. I had this cardboard laying around the room and I thought it looked somewhat like a cross. So I drew something quite the opposite.

Some videos

Sprint's new ad. It's very interesting how they break down the consumption of cell phone use with interesting facts. And I also want to note how it's cleverly animated with great graphics. Don't forget to hit the "HQ" button for "higher quality."

A thesis video, by Mathieu Gerard, for Arts et Technologies de l’Image in France. Watch this video, it's worth the 5mins of your life.

Can you believe this was all done with computer? It's amazing what you can do with skills and a computer. So mesmerizing.
And here's a break down on the making of the video:

And to end it all...a cute and amusing short film by Spanish studio, Ikso.
