This is my first painting of the year! I am plannning on doing many MANY many more as I am finally looking into it more seriously. I've also been reading a great book called 'Oil Painting Secrets from a Master' by Linda Cateura whom my good friend Ben lent to me last summer (I'm gonna finish it soon i promise!). It's an amazing book, definitely worth checking out!

Anyways, I spent the day with my best friend Celina <3

destination - CHINATOWN! 
It's funny cause I've always hated that place. Mostly because of the smell and the dirtiness. But I think I'm starting to see the beauty in it all :)

The ultimate china-combo pose.
squat & fobby peace sign :p

This was a random piece I did after my Asia trip! I was completely inspired by the super fashionable girls in the Shibuya shopping district of Japan. Yes, I know...the girls don't look asian >.<

Does everybody who's Asain draw extremely well?

High, girl!
While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no
An IQ much higher than K2?
An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
with a sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most excellent detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House Upstairs.
