what I think after this semester.....

Merry christmas!
The time passed so fast...the 5th semester had already gone...
I so glad that my art keeps improving, including the skills and the ideas at the same time.
Whenever I look back to my previous works, they look so immature, like a child. Now, I think my work is at least a teenager.
I want and wish I can put all my energy to my artworks but I think I have to start thinking about the business things....I am not familiar with it and my personality doesn't good for it, too.
However, the only way to solve this issue is getting start, force myself to face what I am afraid of.

Pulp Magazine Cover

Oil paint (9"x12")
First, I don't like this project although the instructor, Vincent Di Fate is really amazing...
Thus, I didn't really put my energy to it at all. I finished it within 2 days by oil paint.
However, it comes out really like a pulp magazine style... the use of primary colors, the diagonal composition, the general heroic theme...

Adult Avenue

Ink&Oil paint(11.5"x30")

This is the independent project from Sonja's class.

The story takes place at a subway stop, called “Adult Ave”. If one wants to get on the train at this stop, he/she has to accept a condition---NO REAL FACE EXPOSURE.

One day, there is little boy lost in the Adult Ave. When he is going to get on the train, a stranger stops him and says, “ Boy, you don’t belong to here unless you wear a mask.” Then, the stranger gives a mask to the boy generously. Should the boy take it or not?

It is my favorite project in this semester...

The Brick Wall

Ink&Oil paint(18"x 24")
Project from Sonja's Class...As I mentioned in previous post, her class is different from others and I like her serious attitude to all student's art work. May be it is just some minor problem, but She would insist that you should fix it...and I like it!

Night: Love at First Sight

acrylic on board(28"x 28")

Does First Sight Love happen in reality??
I haven't scan it yet, this image is taken by the camera. But it is just too large to scan at once, so I have to scan it few times and then put them together... I hate to do this.
I seldom paint on large board...there are a lot of details that I can still work on.
The new semester is coming, I am very nervous now><"
