My version of the Grimm's fairytale, Hansel and Gretel resulted in the style of Steampunk.  The style has been morphing, and actually started from sci-fi.

F4LL 2o1o

Back at CalArts as an MFA2, and already it's whizzing by like an unstoppable time stream.  Lots of things happened in the Summer, and lots of things are happening now.  What's been on my mind?  THESIS x 1000.  These was a story I came up with the help of a classmate, drawing from two brown bags:  BIRDS and FLYING MACHINE.  My concepts:

NEVERLAND X

A tee design that never got printed.  Was fun to draw.  Wrist hurt like crap afterwards though, after 2 hours of rendering.

!! BR451L !!

Haven't been back to the country my dad was born and raised in, for 10 years...  3 days in Sao Paulo; 5 in Salvador, Bahia; and 5 days back in Sao Paulo; 2 days of travel.

Saw so many things.  Saw my grandparents again.  :]  Took over 3,000 pix~

[POSTING SOON!!!]

POST-Brazil~  In FIFA-mode~



My dad's friend painted us something on porcelain and fired it.






This rose was dying before we left, and when we came back it still lives!  ...Poor thing, though.  It's dying slowly...

OUR PROJECT / PREENT:  CODE NAME:  "PAPA DAY"
3 women.  3 hours.  1 mind.  My mother, my younger sister, and I have never had good enough coordination for Father's Day until this year.  Yesterday, we shot ideas back and forth, and it came out spontaneously, and efficiently.  My mother suggested a poem--we use this method often.  Since my dad's passion is flying planes, I decided to take B.O.B.'s song "Airplanes" [featuring Hayley Williams (and Eminem)] and quote the first line.  I proposed my sister to write the poem, and she decided to letter it.  She went ahead and designed the graphic look, too.

We had a 8" x 10" blank canvas lying around the house, so I took it, and started to gather materials:
-the canvas
-the quote
-cut-out plane icon from our Brazilian airline [GOL] magazine
-paperclip of a plane [gold version]
-acrylic paints [2 blues, 1 orange]
-water cup
-2 brushes
-puff paint [silvery blue, glittery gold]
-scissors, exacto blade
-elmer's glue
-silver star sew-on button
-silver Sharpie
-gold gel pen
-toothpick
-scribbled plan and poem full of heart

This is what we came up with:









This is us celebrating the night before with new French vodka-white wine-champagne.  We easily drank half of the bottle, but my mother could finish the rest...  Yes, Pink for Daddy~




Homemade food!  Minus tortillas, guac, and salsa:


Smookies!  Homemade cookies with Ghiradelli chocolate and slightly baked marshmellows:



We also celebrated my uncle's birthday [o6.15] with Banana-Cream Pie~
