Acrylic Adventures

I recently took a trip to the art store and came back with new brushes, new paint, new canvases, and new ambitions.  To start, I plan on filling this little sketchbook with paint and hopefully a few of the pages will transcend "tests" by the end.

I'm not sure where the urge originated, really.  Maybe the fall weather sparked an artistic mood swing.  Maybe I've been feeling guilty that my best friend has become Control-Z.  Or maybe I just need to complement my digital day job by expressing myself in a new, more personal way.

KAMEN RIDER VS SUPER SENTAI Anniversaries Tribute Exhibition

If you're in town, come celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Kamen Rider and the 35th Anniversary of Power Rangers series!

The opening reception is November 5th at 7-10pm at both Japanese American Cultural and Community Center and Q Pop Shop in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles.

I grew up watching Chōjin Sentai, Japanese Power Rangers, on Saturday mornings in Thailand (along with Dragon Ball, ThunderCats, and Sailor Moon:)

Among many series of Power Rangers, Jetman series stuck in my memory the most since it has a catchy theme song and I was really into anime super hero action series as a 10 years old girl.

So here is my piece of a character Blue Swallow (ブルースワロー) She's a high school girl who got hit by some sort of "Birdonic Wave." That's how she gained super human abilities.

Her signature attack is Swallow Dash and it is the title of this piece.

8x11 inches, water color on paper!

And did I already mention the catchy theme song??

Hi There, Halloween!

It's that time of year again. I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I'd paint an album poster for a non-existent rock band.
