Self portraits with disturbing likeness!

Here's a great opportunity to get to know the different sides of yezix or Yezi as I'd like to be called in real life:

Sneaky Asian
Plankity Plank!
The Zoo KeeperJewel Thief (for Wade)

The Procrastinator


My family loves to travel. Granted we spend countless hours planning every detail of a vacation (which is more like my parents' style of traveling), the actual decision to go on vacation is usually made unexpectedly. NWA is currently offering some nice travel packages. After my dad saw the ad in the Sunday paper, we are contemplating whether we should go to Hawaii for 6 days in early Jan. Man, that'd be great!

So here's a sketch from my caffeine high. I suppose the arm cast and swollen hand are demonstrations of how Ariel's blog has left me traumatized.

Random fact: A psychic once told me that "Hawaii is your special place. You will go there once with your family and again with your loved one."

And this time, I prepared myself for the photo shoot of my life:

Oh well, if this doesn't turn out as planned, I'll get another chance in six years.

Moving on to color

Here's a 20 min pastel study I did at model lab tonight. Pastels have a nice effect to them, gotta practice more though. The face looks kinda stiff.

More Collage!

More experimenting with the collage! Fun but time-consuming. You know, I should just scan the paper designs and create collages in photoshop! No cutting, no gluing.

Anyway, I'm getting back in the rhythm of things. I've been pretty unproductive after I sent in my CalArts portfolio (Character Animation). There are still the Ringling (computer animation) and USC (MFA in animation) portfolios to go

Illustration Friday: Mask

I thought I'd give collage a try since I've always admired its simple shapes. I picked up the Super Slab of craft paper at Micheals and voila!

Mighty watercolor monsters gone wild!
Don't know what I was thinking--most likely I wasn't. It's too late for thinking....zzzzzz....
