CAKE this weekend

June 3, 2015Exhibitions

It’s that time again! The time that I bring all my silkscreened stuff to a comic book festival. This time I’ll be at CAKE in Chicago, which is a completely new city for me. The thoughts of getting on an airplane once again and possibly getting lost in Chicago are currently filling my mind with … Read More

That dress picture…

March 4, 2015Silkscreen

That dress picture with the “ambiguous” colors that’s been circulating has started to bother me…well mostly the people who say it’s blue and black. Am I missing the joke? They’re trolling right? How can you possibly see black on that dress? To finally put this to rest, I employed Photoshop to sample some colors. As … Read More

Learning and transitioning

February 27, 2015News

I don’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I bought a Cintiq 22HD last November. It took many months of planning and thinking to splurge $2000 on one single piece of equipment. Overall, I’m actually really happy with my purchase even though I haven’t drawn with it all that much…I think I’ve done about … Read More

Rating offices

January 26, 2015personal thoughts

The past four days, I’ve worked for four different clients, and it struck me that I’ve worked with a lot of companies the past couple of years. Given the amount of offices I’ve worked in, I thought maybe I should rate them. That’s the thing I like most about being freelance : it feels like … Read More

CAKE and updates on projects

January 26, 2015News

Just got confirmation today that I got into CAKE! Woohoo! I applied last year but didn’t get in. Don’t know what to expect, but at the very least I get to see Chicago…I’m sight-seeing the U.S through comic book festivals, and on that note, it’s too bad there’s no festivals around the Grand Canyon. But … Read More

Reflections and resolutions

December 23, 2014News

Going through crazy Comicfestathon made me re-evaluate what I was trying to achieve with my art. Are the expenses associated with fests “worth it”? Thinking about it, I only started doing festivals because people told me that’s how I should promote my work. But if I examine my own behavior, the primary way I discover … Read More

So you want to table at a festival….part 1

November 30, 2014Tutorial

Since I’ve been exhibiting at festivals for four years (about 14 festivals total), I thought I should do a post giving pointers to people who are thinking of doing the whole festival circuit. Not that I’m the authority on this subjects, but there has to be some valuable lesson hidden in my experiences. So first … Read More

Winter cleaning

November 15, 2014News

With my sister leaving New York in a few weeks, I’ve “inherited” a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff I don’t want. Combine that with the fact I also own useless things, I had a serious need to unload a lot of crap. Today, I went to Best Buy to recycle a couple of … Read More

Crazy Comicfestathon is over

November 8, 2014News

I’m officially done with festivals for 2014, but more importantly, I’ve survived “Crazy Comicfestathon”. Crazy Comicfestathon is what I decided to call the three festivals I’ve gone to in one month, and let met tell you something: I’ll never do that again. But actually, my fall 2014 festival lineup should also include the New York … Read More

Comic Arts Brooklyn

November 7, 2014Exhibitions

I’ve been crazy busy these past couple of weeks, working for the lovely people at Edelman and now Publicis. So this post is going to be very short: exhibiting at Comic Arts Brooklyn this Saturday. This is the last festival in the “crazy three festivals in a month-athon” that I started early October. It’s also … Read More
