The Sprit of Michael Jackson is free

two versions of an illo in response  to the recent death of Michael Jackson.  I once read an article about how we are all responsible for what Michael became.  We as the public demanded a lot from him and enjoyed pointing fingers at him too.  His childhood was stolen from him.  He was a little child singing songs with sexual content that he didnt understand.  Fame probably tore him apart as it does many child stars.  His father nicknamed him "Big Nose".  Anyway it was an interesting article and kind of true.

The spirit of Michael Jackson is now free from its tortured vessel that has been torn apart by the public.  Maybe little Michael can now have that childhood he never got to have.

Chinese ink and brush quick drawings

Some quick experiments with Chinese brushes and ink.  go on try it.  you will forever admire people who can harness this awesome medium.  I have about 50 more years to go.  I'm trying to find a way to incorporate brushwork into my work.

Prep for 798 Show

in preparation for a little show in 798 that would include 3 of my illustrations i had to take on the laborious task of finding a good print shop in beijing again. i had given up. this time around i found a place that had the same epson printer we had at FIT and even the newest one. It's at the Central Academy of Fine Art or something like that. and yes the prints were very satisfactory this time. i had them printed on genuine epson fine art paper.

an older model of the Canon copier from FIT

the lastest Epson printer. it has 11 inks! and is super fast

they probably have these at all chinese colleges, just like they have them on all the trains (not subway). a hot water dispensor for tea and ramen and the like.

a macro shot of the awesome allergens in beijing.

awesome homemade toilet seat at the college

at the frame shop. mostly these guys frame crap all day. i mean needle point stuff made from a pattern. things so tacky that i am ashamed i forgot to take a pic of some examples.

a frame cutting machine.

smoke stack at the school. this got out of order somehow.

including the frame and 8cm matte this thing is huge. like 75% the size of my bed!
