Atomic dreams

Wowie! I had such an awesome first day at my art college today (even though it is labor day)!

Since there were no classes, everyone was outside today playing sports and chatting together underneath a blistering sun. I joined in on the fun so as not to veg out all day. Ended up going out for ice cream with a group of friends, Made chalk art while eating cookies/talking about animation with students, and even got invited to a semi-formal, oriental dinner that one of our dorm mates cooked up! It was super relaxing and invigorating (especially with meditation music and jasmine tea).

Finally, to finish off such an eventful evening, i got to see our college screen “The Lego Movie” in the auditorium! It was definitely worth all the hype it got, considering the messages they put into the film were for both young and old, and how the characters developed during the plot’s progression. My favorite characters have to be Emmet, Lucy, and The Wizard. Unikitty counts a little but she was more of a comedic sidekick/side-character to me.

Everything is awesome when you are a part of the team!~ :)

I have wondered about this for so long.

"This is some Salvador Dali shit…"

-The most ironic statement i’ve ever made in a dream today while riding on an animated chair through a desert of moving picture frames and carnival madness, all at the same time being followed by the great, hairy skeleton king Nito.

Blue-rayed Metalmark - Lyropteryx apollonia

Lyropteryx apollonia (Riodinidae) is one of those butterflies that are equally striking whether they are seen from both the upperside (top photo) or the underside (bottom photo) of the wings.

In addition to its stunning look, these butterflies have a peculiar behavior. Males are occasionally seen visiting sewage seepages or urine-soaked ground. They drink using the “filter-feeding” method, whereby they imbibe almost continually, extracting salts from mineral-rich patches of ground, or from the edges of puddles. Periodically they squirt the demineralized water from their anus, curving their abdomen so as to aim the liquid at the ground beneath their feet. There it leaches more minerals from the ground, which are re-imbibed. This process is continuous and the butterflies often recycle the same fluid many times during a period of several minutes.

The Blue-rayed Metalmark is widely distributed throughout the tropical regions of South America including Colombia, western and southern Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia.

Here it is! My senior thesis! I am finally getting this thing posted online. It is my own take on “The Three Little Pigs”. My thesis teacher pushed me to do something sequential and I am so glad he did. This was such a fun and challenging project.

I did not have time to do an entire comic (or I didn’t want to drive myself crazy attempting at least). So here is a cover, poster, and two two-page spreads from different parts of the story! Maybe some day I will get the chance to make the entire comic.

I placed second in our senior thesis show! It was such an amazing experience. I cant thank everyone enough for their support.

Done with Prismacolor brush markers and colored pencils! And then Photoshop for a few things: most of the lettering (it’s all hand done though), the panel borders, and some color edits.

Such a great artist, check out their work!

Tuesday Tips - LINE OF ACTION
The line of action doesn’t necessarily need to be drawn in. As long as you think about it while drawing, your gesture or posing will be stronger. It gives a direction to the pose, a force that runs though, or simply a visual pathways to guide your audience. Use it always!Norm
