New WordPress theme!

Warning! Nerd rant. This post is probably only important to me because it’s my website. I had to retire my other theme (Shaken Grid) because it started acting janky. I spent the entire weekend trying to make it work (notice the Spray Paint section is having to be redone because that’s where the problems started)...Read More

Wayyyy late…as usual :/

4 years late to discovering the Geocities-sizer! Here is a screenshot of my website. How cool! I’m so amused, only because I used to love customizing my MySpace profile & adding a tiled background to my website – it was my favorite thing to do. What a nerd. I’m sure I have those backgrounds saved...Read More

Very sporadic postings

Remember when blogging was more of a personal thing? Now that major brands big & small have caught on, it doesn’t seem as personal. Now people blog to promote something – so they can stay relevant, rank on Google & promote their business or product – rather than blogging just to express anything personal or...Read More

Wired chick

Always on, always connected. I painted this girl when our TV was broken; the back cover was taken off and the tv’s motherboard was exposed. Well?love it (2) hate it (0) good (0) whatever (0) yawn (0)

I’m back on Instagram…sorta.

In typical fashion, I deleted my first account because I’m slowly morphing into an antisocial creature most of the time and can’t handle too many people electronically & in real life. But I am back and will attempt to stay and post regular drawings & paintings. I hope this will get my art game back up. Also,...Read More

Dear Universe,

I don’t want to do print anymore. I’ve discovered in the last 6 months that I enjoy working on web stuff more than I do print. So I only want to do internet work from here on out – specifically web design work involving HTML / CSS, WordPress then Javascript & PHP eventually. I am...Read More

Done with school…for now.

It’s been a while since I’ve written in here. I just completed 10 weeks of Front End Web Development class; I really learned a lot and I’m happy that I can use this for work-related stuff – which I’m already doing. There were times when I wanted to drop it, I didn’t want to drive...Read More


Quick watercolor painting, festive colors for the Christmas holiday. I hope to fill up this website again with more of my drawings & paintings. will be 10 years old in 2014! The website and myself have evolved / changed so much since 2004. I never imagined myself as someone who would eventually grasp Web...Read More

I haven’t been drawing or sketching…

and I’m kinda mad at myself for not doing so. I keep putting it off, like it’s this huge undertaking that I have to do…but I know it doesn’t have to be. I hope to start making it a regular habit again, and not be so harsh on myself if I’m not creating anything cool...Read More

Suffering for the actions of others

If one person takes advantage of a situation and eventually gets caught… usually his or her peers are the ones who have to pay for it. Be mindful of your actions and be considerate towards your fellow man / woman. Well?love it (1) hate it (0) good (0) whatever (0) yawn (0)

You caught me in a different time, with a different mind…

Some people probably wonder why I don’t paint graffiti as much as I used to. The answer to that is: I don’t know. Perhaps all the magical & alluring things that attracted me to it in the first place have gone. Maybe I just got old and lazy. Maybe certain life events made me lose...Read More

Bunny ice cream time machine

I look back and wonder who this person was – the person who painted bunnies, clouds & ice cream themes at some point. Only a handful of people know me from that world now, while most others know me as their quiet, hard-working, quirky & artistic co-worker. Still the same person but older & different I guess....Read More

Attitude adjustment

I wish I had more interesting things to say on here; but most of the time I am just a broken record, perpetually bitching about something work-related. Hooray. Most of the things that irritate me have to do with other people. So what’s the solution here…not work with people? That in itself just sounds impossible...Read More


Title: Illuminated Medium: Pen and watercolor Size: 12″x 12″ Email: if you are interested in purchasing this painting (unframed). This painting came out of nowhere for me; meaning I didn’t plan on creating such a composition, it just turned out that way. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been learning to trust my intuition more (even...Read More


Whenever something I love becomes popular or trendy, I lose interest; I tend to go the opposite way and look for something else to get into. Same goes with subject matter in my artwork; if other people start to paint the same things, then it’s time for me to change it up. I might be...Read More

A quote from Saul Bass

I want everything we do to be beautiful. I don’t give a damn whether the client understands that that’s worth anything, or that the client thinks it’s worth anything, or whether it is worth anything. It’s worth it to me. It’s the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things,...Read More

The Hermit IX

I keep trying to figure out where it is I actually fit in…and I’ve come to realize that I really don’t (or won’t ever) fit in anywhere. And so be it. The Hermit card has been coming up a lot for me. When you look at the card, it doesn’t seem like anything is going...Read More
