Long Time No Post!

I realize I haven’t posted in quite awhile. I’ve been catching up in my art class (finally), and today we just wrapped up with our installation piece. I have a lot to post today though!!

I wanted to do something about the conditions my mom, an immigrant, would have lived with arriving to a new country. I really enjoy the idea of exploring my roots. I used a used mattress, a cardboard box to hold up a T.V, and a new stuffed animal (it would have been my sister’s birthday gift—the first new thing she received, not something fished from trash). Added some family photos (no stand on the back, so we taped paper cups to them). And had the projection of my sister curled up in the corner (who would come home crying because the kids picked on her in school because of the language barrier). It’s titled “FREEDOM”. The reason for calling it "Freedom" is because so many people run from countries under a communist rule (my family), or a dictatorship, but end up living in squalor, and in poverty. This is the “freedom” they get.

Here’s something a classmate did (Styrofoam cups)…

Here’s a Jeff Buckley drawing I’m doing with pencil crayons. Jeff Buckley

Speaking of Jeff Buckley, I do this thing for fun sometimes, called “Adventures with Jeff Buckley”. It’s just basically me hanging around with Jeff Buckley’s…ghost?

And here are a bunch of sketches I’ve done recently:

If you want to see the photos larger, click them to go to the flickr page where they have that option. That’s all for now! I leave you with a photo of my super cute dog, Luc!


  1. Loving the expressions in the second panel of that comic!!

    Also, Toronto update-- I'm trying to get tickets to leave a few hours earlier, because I realized I don't have any classes that Friday. I'll let you know how that works out sometime in the next couple days.

  2. Okay, cool. If you can't, it will be me picking you up (which is okay, I know my way around), and then we just get on the train to Oakville (it's a 35 minute train, not bad at all).
