I had a heck of a time trying to do the editing. But it was fun to do. I was thinking of Leia in my two favorite scenes... Pose from "help me Obi-Wan, you are our only hope" and costume... well you know where :P
I was very grateful to get a copy of Liquid City from my friend Charlene!( like 2 weeks ago, yes I'm a bit late blogging it now). It's a amazing book. I went with Charlene and her husband Wayne to the "Speak easy comic event" it was a fun time (I'm writing this way past the event). I totally urge you to pick up this compilation. It has some amazing artists in there.
I also have my favorite page from Charlene hanging up on my wall. GO GET IT NOW!!!! Well the book... not the page that Charlene gave me (that page is MINE)
I just wanted to take to time to announce my good friend Hilary Leung is launching a book. Titled "The Legend of Cowboy Ninja Bear" Written by David Bruins and illustrated by Hilary Leung.
It's a beautiful book. And it's very exciting to see it from start to finish. I can't tell you how much quality oozes from this book. I maybe Biased... but you MUST check it out!!!! Oh and it's not just a bunch of pretty pictures.. its got a solid solid story to boot! Who says you need kids to get one of these!!!!
Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. I've been bogged down with work. I'm promising myself to try to update more again. I've been kind of hording art work the last while ... some projects I may just wait for the proper moment to post. But here's a few for now.
Here are some samples I did recently on car ads. I came up with the copy myself and worked up and illustration for some of these popular cars. I have more in the works. It's an excuse just to sit back and enjoy rendering. No need to come up with a new design out of thin air! Yes, so I'll just try to do Motorwork's design justice:)
FYI I just started a new blog with a few friends. The blog is for fun. Drawing our favorite tv shows, movies and net celebs... you can find the blog here http://leadtemple.blogspot.com/ but here's another sketch
"Where's Walace at? Where the boy Straight?"
Man I watched the first season of the Wire.. what a awesome series. D'angelo and Wallace... easily my 2 favorite characters. For this drawing I didn't exagerate this one as much as my last sketch. But I had fun drawing D'angelo
First time I saw the afro ninja video I died laughing so hard. I showed it to my buddy Ted... and we died laughing. We go back to work... and then we would snicker some more (we were watching it again at our desks). I can't count how many times I've watched this and I never get tired of laughing from it.
So Afro Ninja, if you're reading this. This is dedicated to you.
