Well, this is awkward…
Well, this is awkward…
I meant to blog about this yesterday but I kind of got off track. I went out for breakfast with a friend of mine and we stopped by the NoMinimo art gallery. It’s a pretty cool gallery– I just found out on Thursday that they have open portfolio sessions where you can just walk in and share your work with other artists there. I found out a little too late though since they only have these sessions once per month (I believe) and the next scheduled session is right when my classes start. Their goal is to showcase the work of emerging artists and help them get their name out there both locally and internationally. I took the following pictures outside the gallery.
After touring the gallery and speaking to the curator for a bit (we got invited to an art conference on Monday too!), my friend and I set off for some breakfast. We were both starved. He decided we should go to Tinta Cafe, which is basically a cafe and a bookstore as well. I love the concept and the ambiance of the place. It’s wonderful!
What better way to start the day than having coffee and waffles for breakfast? I also got to talk about artsy-fartsy stuff, literature, and careers with my friend, which is always a plus. I do enjoy having cultured conversations, I don’t get to do that every single day so I cherish every moment of it when I get the chance to.
So yummy! They had these awesome place-mats too. I’m saying awesome because they were mostly blank and could doodle on them like the little girl that I am hahaha~
I’m still trying to figure out what else I could do to improve this…
This is what I’ve been working on for the past few weeks… instead of doing other important stuff. I’m experimenting with the inking and toning too so it didn’t really turn out the way I expected it to. I’m hoping to get better at this as the comic progresses. The webcomic can be found at http://drawclub.interruptedreality.com and I’ll update constantly throughout this week until I reach a suitable amount of pages (I’m aiming for 10 but it could be less) before starting to update once per week.
FeriaPlay (Although I think it’s Feria PlayTech or something haha…) is a technology and comics convention. I dropped today to check it out and it was pretty decent. I mostly went there to see if I could get a picture taken with a Boba Fett cosplayer but I didn’t make it. 😦 I did, however, get my picture taken with a guy dressed as Rorschach from The Watchmen.
The convention itself was divided in two parts, technology and comics and other geeky stuff. Honestly, I thought they’d be all mixed together but ah well. It was pretty cool. I mostly hung out around the comics section with my friends.
I took pictures of the stuff on display– mostly comics and stuff. There was also a haunted house in the back so that was pretty amusing too.
They also showed the work of local illustrators, which was pretty cool.
I think I spent most of my time at the kiddie table doodling on the back of coloring sheets though haha… that was fun.
I’ve got the best pick-up lines ever too haha… (I actually need to work on these so I can doodle randomly at places and leave the pick-up lines around my sketches.)
Yes, I’m THAT shameless haha!
Anyway, I got up from the kiddie table to look for a friend and when I looked back at the table and someone had taken my sketches! I wasn’t going to keep the page, but it was surprising to see how quickly someone came and swiped it hahaha~! xD
Android 18 (DragonBall Z) quick doodle. Ah, the nostalgia! I remember watching DBZ all the time as a child hahaa– I really liked A18 back then. C:
Work in progress. I don’t think I’ll finish this one haha- might be just a sketch for now.
Beth sketch. The protagonist’s (yeah, still no name) inexperienced assistant/secretary.
This is the protagonist of a collaboration webcomic that Chris and I are planning. He doesn’t have a name yet.
