Hello there. When I moved to Oakland I moved farther away from my father's scanner, and as such, stopped blogging. Now I have my very own scanner and a tumblr blog to go with it. So from here on out, you can see my new stuff here: http://irasalden.tumblr.com/ Cheers!
A little while ago some buds and I (together we are the Cultivation Collective?) put together a little figure drawing party at Public Works. Here's an article about it! It was Jungle themed! I painted a pretty lady like a leopard, we covered the place in plants, people came and drew. It was a good time! More of these things in THE FUTURE...
Sadly, Log Book 3, which was started in late November and continued through the first days of the new year, was lost. I think I left it Adobe Books. And then I think someone took it, you know, because it was awesome. After two weeks of searching and becoming depressed, Log Book 3.5 was commenced. Highlights:
Apparently the word I wanted here was "petulant":
This is probably only funny if you know my bosses...
Whoof it's been over a month since my last post! I was in Texas. Not Austin. Not Houston. Not Dallas. TEXAS. Palestine, TX in the Eastern part more specifically. I went to a TexMex restaurant called Little Mexico with my two cousins and they dumped packets of Splenda into their salsa. (!!!!!???!!!!)
So yea, vacation, then Lobster Man. For the past 3 weeks I've been working on this guy here. He is going to get dressed to the nines and grace the front window of the 826 Valencia Pirate Store starting in early July. Come check it out!
I sent my comic about Swan the Adobe dweller to Mission Mission, my fave neighborhood blog...never realized they actually posted it! Nice to see :) Check it!
I made this for my friend Dmitriy who volunteers at 826 Valencia. I was working in the pirate store and he asked me how I motivate myself to work on creative projects. He told me to make a guide for him so I did! I've been feeling a lot of creative angst myself recently, so maybe by putting this up here I'll be more apt to keep it in mind.
This is a portrait of Yasuo sensei, the sushi chef and owner of Sushi Tei, the best restuarant in Mountain View, California. My dad, sister, and I used to eat there almost every week and developed a pretty special relationship with sensei. Larry and I ate there a couple weeks ago and we asked him what was special that evening. "Radiation."
