Let Go

This particular illustration came out of the air for me. I really enjoyed letting it come through me.

Purrcasso Numero Uno

Here is my first attempt at a piece for the upcoming Purrcasso 2009. What's Purrcasso you may ask?
"Purrcasso is an art and craft auction and gala that benefits the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society in Berkeley, CA. This year the event will be split into two parts: an evening auction of fine art/illustration and a daytime craft fair. This year’s event will be held on November 7, 2009, 7:30-9:30pm and November 8, 2009, 12:00-3:00 pm. Location to be announced shortly."

I was invited along with a host of other artists to contribute a piece this year. So I hope to have a little family of kitties and puppies by end of week for y'all to pick over. Stay tuned!

Recently, one of my most favorite directors and storytellers, Yasmin Ahmad, passed away from complications due to a stroke. Although little known in the west outside of film festivals, her films always had the uncanny ability to allow an audience see the great connective tissue between us rather than the illusory, fear driven barriers we erect in the name of culture, class, and race.

This drawing is what I felt after seeing her breakout hit, "Sepet" (a Malay slur for slanted eyes), about the cross cultural relationship between a Chinese boy and a Muslim Malay girl. If you can find it, watch it. It's truly a gem.

For those who are wondering, "Sayang" is the affectionate Malay word for darling or sweetheart. For those who may be interested in seeking out the Sepet trilogy, here's one place, as well as a trailer:

Ohhh! Chimpanzee That!

Like their human counterparts, this graduating primate class is a gallery of ne'er-do-wells and do-gooders. Let's hope these growing boys n' gals go far.

A big thanks to my good friend Kitty for helping me brainstorm some monkey-tacular monikers!

Josephine Baker in the year 3000

I honestly don't know where this started in my wee noggin, but I certainly enjoyed the journey. Josephine Baker in the year 3000, with her friendly neighborhood jellyfish.


Have a great Fourth to you Yanks, and a fantastic weekend to my global homies!

Be Still

Here's another entry in the "Terrible Yellow Eyes" project.

This is inspired by the scene where Max uses a magic trick to tame the wild things. In my re-imagining, all they need is a little heart to heart.

Emmy Goodness!

Somehow between gigs and life in general, I've been totally remiss in mentioning that I won an NorCal Emmy earlier last month along with my old compadres from The CW for the Comic Book Hero spot in the brand spanking new category, New Media - Interactivity. Sexy ;)

Here are some pics of the gala night and the OG spot itself.

Where the Wild Things Are

I was recently asked to contribute to an amazing online project in tribute to the great Maurice Sendak, the author and illustrator for "Where the Wild Things Are". The sheer talent on display at this site is astounding and I consider myself truly honored to be in such good company. Feel free to check out the rest of the work at Terrible Yellow Eyes.

Also, the site will be presented to Maurice on June 10th as it's his birthday, so I may have another one of these in me as a gift ;)

Happy Mum's Day

My mom happens to be a tango dancing nut, and so I thought she would enjoy a bit of Buenos Aires for this special day.

I just came off of a stint at CNET as a motion graphics designer and thought I'd share some examples of my work there. Redballs redballs, wherefore art thou?

An oldie but goodie

This is how I'd love to spend a day in the world: Super size yet gentle, wishing on a tree.

Love me some Austin

It would be entirely too long winded to explain this doodle, but trust that it all makes sense in my warped mind. It started with a trip out to Austin for my birthday, where I literally ate, drank, and danced my way back through. It was an unimaginably fun trip and I miss it already.

If I had to extrapolate a story from this frame, it concerns the misadventures of Marcela and Sammy the Lemur, who come in contact with the curious case of the Holy Cupcake. This is definitely inspired by my own encounter with the spiritual experience that was Hey Cupcake!
