Sorry guys, I can't visit States because I was crazily busy with more art projects. In the future, I really hope I may have time to visit States for my 2nd trip. Take note, my art collectors / fans, my original works are fairly affordable this time because they are unframed and yep, for the Holidays.... Please contact G1988 SF at gallery1988@gmail.com if you're interested in buying. Visit the G1988 preview blog , there are more talented artists' wonderful original works, check them out!

And I also created my colored ones. I remembered my colorful creature when I was a little tanned girl. I always played with my creature in my beach, I kept giggling a lot. In a real life, I saw a few different creatures: violet, green, black / white, red and sometimes blue. I tried to touch them but they were shy... Then they ran away cutely slowly, weeeee... The real creature is Nudibranchia (yes, it's real!). Please check the Wikipedia about Nudibranch. That's why my creature really inspires me very much, I dig on their marvelous colors, patterns, textures, more. I got an idea that I tried to combine cat fish and nudibranchia into cute character, hehehe! I love it!

How are you all doing? I'm so sorry for not writing my blog updates last November month because I was struggling with art deadlines. November really gave me a big crazy busyness... but I enjoyed doing my new challenges. After I have finished my original works for Paper Pushers show, I continued doing my new comic project for the contribution book "Fractured Fables" from Silverline Books, among great comic artists. Yes, I was surprisingly invited by Image Comics co-creators Whilce Portacio, Jim Valentino and Kristen Simon about the Fractured Fables comic book past few months ago! Sigh, This is an unexpected blessing for me.... Whew, I was super happy-cry (yes, I cried 'coz of my hurt tired right hand!) that I have finished my colored 8-comic pages before the deadliest deadline, hoho! Here's my sneak peek of my comic, "The Fox and The Cat". My mission is accomplished, hooray! In the future, I really hope I could be good at making comics.



Anyway, I will not post my whole comics, sorry. I'll keep you guys updated when the full-color hardcover books will be released next year. And my webcam pic of tired me and my current 14" X 20" commissioned painting for my client Dary. I'll post it when it will be done soon. Whew, that's all folks. I can't wait to take a break from my crazy art schedule. Ciao!

Pat and Susana said...

Congratulations on the sucess of the art show!! The whole ensemble of the paintings that you created are so enchanting. Loved the different expressions of the girl and the eyes are our favourite bit... its so powerful that they truly "talk to us". ♥

Also, the Nudibranchia is such an amazing creature. Like a real storyteller we loved the magical portrait that you brought with your artwork. The textures and colours are genius *bows to you*

Can't hardly wait to see the comic. And truly hope that we can buy it online *crosses fingers*

MWAHHHH!! <3333
