Post Secrets

In Art, Life, Vida on February 25, 2008 at 1:45 am

On Saturday night I went out to eat good food. After a while eating canteen my taste becomes almost unsensitive, so Irene, Chris Lai and me we decided to go to Amaroni’s, a delicious American-Italian Restaurant in Festival Walk. I ate Cannelloni, which I haven’t tasted for so long. After that, I went to Page One and bought two books. The first volume of “Post Secrets” and a travelguide of Thailand.

Post Secret is one the most incredible things I have ever seen before. It is a massive community art project, in which people send their secrets anonymously to Frank Warren. I just love the idea. Despite publications, there is a blog which is updated everyday: http://postsecret.blogspot.com/


ECE Tshirt…

In Life on February 23, 2008 at 8:29 am

I’ve been working so hard since yesterday. ECE is so soon… and here I am making the design for the T-Shirt.  It is not 100% done but maybe 97%. I got inspired by Marylin Monroe,  Amelie, Little Red Riding Hood and from the punk mainstream.. In the end, I did something manga-ish, though I wanted something more European-comic-like. Anyways. I think I did a good job. 1.5 hours thinking  + 1 hrs drafting + 0.5 hrs modifying + 1.5 hrs final draft + 1hr computerising + 7 hrs Photoshop work = 12.5 hrs 97% Real Work = Good T-shirt(?) I should be studying maths.. Bye bye!

Brad Kahlhamer

I just found out his art on the net. I guess he uses watercolour to make his painting that are placed in the installation he makes. He uses mainly the female body and skulls. He also has influences from ancestral American Indian aesthetic (eagles, totems, natural elements).

The pictures were taken from : Stuart Shave/ Modern Art

You can buy some pieces from artnet.com

Arg. Grades Grades

In Life on February 20, 2008 at 6:37 am

I got so pissed off about my grades. They are just crap, bullshit… You do everything you are required to do, but in the end, nothing happens, no reward no satisfaction. I’m really pissed off about my art, about how people are everything except sympathetic… You know what-I-mean. And of course, you come here, and you are expected to get good grades, sleep properly and of course socialise. Maybe it is no possible. Maybe it is just not possible….. Ok, I probably need to calm down and go to study. I seriously think this school has so many defects…

Rush Art.

Make an art project come-true in 2 days. That’s my purpose…. I didn’t have the materials, but I’m going to make it! Oh díos mío.

I’ll be probably locked up in the Art Room for the whole weekend.. and tomorrow I have the Fundraising Dinner… Arg!

Exhausting Weekend

In Hong Kong, Life on January 28, 2008 at 7:05 am

I am exhausted!

To be continued.

Vacation is over!

In Life, Series on January 6, 2008 at 4:31 pm

Ok. Tomorrow I’m leaving Vigo again and back to Hong Kong. Just feel like I haven’t done anything useful all these three weeks, anyways I took rest enough and I’m going back to LPCUWC with all all my energy! Attack!Yesterday I finished the season 2 of Grey’s Anatomy  and of course, as all the shows, the intrigue arouses and the last episode ends at the climax moment. — This is a spoiler about GA 2×27 — Meredith is with Dr. Shepper again, Denny dies and Izzie gives up being a doctor. Poor Finn, the actual Meredith’s vet boyfriend, I rather prefer him than Derek who sucks completely because he’s being completely unfaithful to Addison. I’m fed up of the relationship between Derek and Meredith, they just make me sad. Also Dr. Torres and George suck, they are losers! Maybe in the last episodes the situation get better because he does apologise to Meredith.Update: GA 3×03 OMG! What a threesome image on my head! I’m completly hooked to GA.
