This week in sketching! Late update, I know, but my laptop went to heaven this past week and now I’m in a bit of a debt. But hey, back to paper and ink.

1) a time lapse comic I’ve been working on, daily practice is good. It’s the view from the dining room table I’m working off on at my cousin’s

2) figure drawing - draped model, with ink

3) the view of Toronto from my aunt’s place in Humber

4) a wip on a 30 day song challenge before my laptop failed on me

5) a 2 minute selfie

This week in sketching!

I’m running out of room in the moleskin pretty soon, gotta run out and buy a new one.

1) I’ve been doing some cafe running - sketches from Rooster Cafe in Riverdale
And a bit of a modcloth wish list thrown in

2) Some beginning plans for a piece based on Vienna Teng’s music

3) 誰か、海を。- sketch inspired by the new single from Aimer for the animation series, Terror in Resonance

4) Messy sketching in my cousin’s place and at Merchant’s Coffee House

5) More heads and faces.

thank you for the happiness
I attended TIFF for the first time this weekend! I had the pleasure of seeing the North American debut of The Tale of Princess Kaguya. It was such an amazing film, probably one of the best 2D animation films I’ve seen. The story, even though I knew the ending, was spun in such an original way that it exceeded all my expectations.
I totally didn’t know Isao Takahata was in attendance, I puked a little on the inside when I saw him on stage. I’ve been watching his films for so long, and having him there was too much. Only Yesterday still remains as one of my favourites in his line of work.

Hey new followers! Thanks for following :) 

It’s been a bit crazy because I just moved to Toronto, and I’m currently living out of a suitcase in my nephew’s bedroom. The first week has been a lot of wandering on foot/streetcar/subway and trying not to fall asleep. 

1) Went on a museum run in the city, sat behind the ROM and explored the park behind the UofT Music Faculty. 

2) I’ve been hanging out with a lot of kids lately. And drawing a lot of pokemon for them. 

3) Still in my space phase, early process of a pattern I want to fully render

4 and 5) Sketches  during brunch at the Prohibition Gastrohouse, where they have the best Mac and Cheese 

I’m still apartment hunting, but I’m starting a Graphic Novel course and attending some Life Drawing next week at OCAD. Stay tuned! 

I started a photography blog! I recently purchased the Bonzart Twin Ampel Lens for fun and travel, and will be documenting things over there.
Little fact, I was actually going to major in photography in art school but didn’t like the curriculum so I switched to illustration since it was a brand new program. I didn’t really draw until 2nd year of college. I had no idea what I was doing, but it worked out pretty well!

This week in sketching! 

1) Some early process work of both Sailor Moon/Kenshin prints.

2) Did you know the word freedom, and the flower associated with it is the Water Willow? I snorted my tea, and drew a Haruka. Don’t worry, I’m working on all the boys- unfortunately, there are no abs. 

3) CIRCUS OUTFITS FROM HELL, this one is on the backburner until I’m less stressed out about frills. Holy crap, Yana-sensei. How do you do it. 

4) I got to see the Game of Thrones exhibition this weekend! It was a delight to see all the Red Keep costumes up close, Margarey and Sansa’s wedding gowns were stunning. I did some sketching while my buddies were doing that 4D Night’s Watch adventure, I skipped out cause 4D is just too much D for me. 

don’t go, it’s a mighty long fall
I have no idea how many times I had the song on repeat, but voila! Kenshin movie poster! Bless ONE OK ROCK, and bless Taka’s vocal range. 
I also adore the entire cast because they are all amazingly talented, I’ve been following Takeru since his poofy hair teenage years. Good on him to land a role like this, Kenshin was one of my childhood staples.
