1.)What have you been doing post-graduation (art-wise or life-wise) and what are your plans for the next few months?
Hey guys! I enrolled in an online school (Art Institute of Pittsburg) to get a webdesign diploma. There are so many jobs in that, so I figured I'd do that to make money and do illustration on the side. I've also been illustrating my second children's book. It's a chapter novel for teens. Very Roald Dahl-esque = very me. I've been having a lot of fun with that. 4 more illustrations to go! My plans for the next few months are to.. either get a crappy job to make some pocket money or just focus on school full-time and train my new dog.
2.)Where have you moved to (be specific: ex."hampden") ? Are you happy/excited/frustrated/ disappointed by your new location? Is there something about this new place you wanna advertise, or warn us about? (Ex. great Tex-Mex food, bad public transportation)
I haven't moved far... I moved to my parents'... Yeah.. It's great and really lame at the same time. Can't feel too great about myself about it, really. Finksburg, Maryland is where I be now. I'm disappointed and extremely frustrated about the fact that I'm jobless and not on my own. Very lame.. If only my parents (esp my dad) weren't so anal and naggy.. we could easily rent out to two people. They've have to share a bathroom, but they'd have their own room. It would be a smart thing to do, you know? Other bad thing is that we're 30 minutes away from everything, though Owings Mills is only 15-20 minute away. Owings Mills has pretty much everything you need.
3.)Is there something you have created since you graduated you would like to share? (it doesn't have to be an illustration)
Hm.. I've created the illustrations I've done for the book and I've managed to complete only a couple of personal pieces. I'm also working on getting my store/studio started (PODOHAMA).
4.)Which specific color have you been using/thinking about the most lately?
Hm.. lots of neon colors, mostly. Hot pink, yellow, and neon blue... You guys may notice it all over my websites/blogs/recent pieces.
5.)Tell us something about you that has changed since we last met.
We adopted our first dog! She's a year old miniature pinscher with rare coloring (chocolate/red). She's really sweet and is finally starting to come out of her shell. I've created a blog for her, actually. It would be unlike me if I hadn't...
