2012 A New Year, A New Frontier!

Hey everyone! 2012 is approaching, many conspiracists say the world will end in this year, many dread and fear this year, while others welcome it with cheer and optimism. 

I welcome 2012, and will make the most of it, whether the world ends or not - which I'm not saying it is, but you never know, maybe aliens are planning on invading or something...I don't know.... 

Anyway, in order to make the most of 2012, here's a few new years resolutions that I plan on following to improve.

(Do you have any resolutions? Let me know~ )

1. Create/draw/work on art for 25 minutes or more everyday.
2. Limit time on internet.
3. Keep grades up, turn everything in on time.
4. Practice drawing anatomy and push poses.
5. Create more paintings/work towards larger scale canvases
6. Push myself to create new things.

2011 was such a significant year for me, so many things happened good and bad, but I rolled with the punches and in the end things turned out okay. I feel like I've improved so much as an artist and person. I hope that 2012 would be just as good, or possibly better for me, and you too.

Happy New Year everyone!

(Here's are a few things I've made recently, that I want to post before 2012. )

Am I a pretty fairy?!?

After going through some old sketch books, I stumbled upon my beloved Cutie Pie creature, and felt compelled to redraw her. It's been a year since the last time I drew Cutie Pie, and I see a little improvement since then.

Comic Fans in the Wild

My aunt sent me this rare video footage, never before seen.
Different species of comic fans migrating from their natural habitats to meet at Sac-Con, to perform their ritual gathering of purchasing merchandise, seeing artists, and dressing up as fictional characters to attract potential mates.

On the right side of the video, you'll see the elusive Jhonen Vasquez. He waits patiently at his booth for his prey to buy his comics; when their guard is down, he quickly devours them like an anaconda.
If my aunt would have recorded to the right a little more she would have captured this rare act on film.

Sac-Con 2011

Sacramento California, held Sac-con where amazing people like Jhonen Vasquez, Angus Oblong, Rikki Simmons, and others sat for hours diligently signing autographs and were forced to chit chat with fans!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend Sac-Con, but
my amazing aunt Gloria went for me to get some autographs and take some pictures. I entrusted Gloria with my visual journal to hunt down these amazing people and get them to sign in it.

Jhonen Vasquez, one of my favorite artists of all time. Artist and writer of the comics JTHM, Squee, I feel sick, Filler Bunny - and creator of the cartoon Invader Zim. Holding my visual journal...You cannot fathom the joy I am feeling seeing this.

Rikki Simmons, voice of Gir, and color artist for Jhonen Vasquez's, "I feel Sick," comics.

Angus Oblong - creator of the Oblongs, a wonderfully strange cartoon on adult swim. 

I'm sure there are more sigs in here, but I won't know for sure until I see my aunt in about a week. My spleen cannot contain this much happiness, I'm afraid it will burst.

Doodling helps relieve stress, I've been super busy lately and haven't doodled as much. A lot of my doodles are streams of unconscious thoughts, and I end up making something interesting due to not feeling any pressure to make it look good because it's simply doodling. I need to get back to doodling more often.
