the Ape weekend.

Thanks for everyone who stopped by the table to say hi at Ape last weekend.
It was the first time for me to participate the event as an exhibitor,
I had a wonderful time meeting all the artists and making friends. *_*
There were 4 other artist friends sharing the table with me, Eun Ju& Jason Newhaus, Sunyeong Joh , and Richard Kim .
It was the first time experience at APE for all of us, we were all exhausted but excited through out the weekend.

Among all the comic conventions in California, APE always has the charm for me,
it seems to me that it is a smaller but more hands-on crafty, experimental, and personal comic/ art convention.
Something we don't commonly or ever see in a daily bookstore, like a off-regular-sized book or a interactive book arts...,were especially fascinating for me. Also, not only the price is more affordable to most people (^_-), just the amount of heart and effort put into each comics, artworks ,and crafts worth far more than its face price. I think for most of the people, the main goal and fun is just to make friends and sharing artworks with others...

On the last saturday morning preparing APE around 8:30 am, we were all exhausted from the intense week of preparation, and all said" this is the first and last time we're doing this....(>_<) " but by the end of the exhibition on Sunday, though we were all still and even more exhausted, we said" we got to do this again !!! ...P(*O*)q " It was definitely a great experience.

Thanks again for ones who got the kitosan Tea book, I hope you all are enjoying the tea and getting ready for a relax weekend. and if you're interested in knowing more about Kitosan, you can find it in ' Afterworks 2'; or please check back the blog once a while, I'll post more work in progress for the next story ^_-
( oh wait, ape isn't exactly gorillas..!?..XP )

and also, definitely check out Sunyeong, Eun Ju, Jason, and Richard's sites,
they all made wonderful books and stories for Ape, and great artworks to share on their sites !

Illustration Friday: Fortune.

A matching left hand print. it's a smiley curve.

Just found out about Illustration Friday from Noah last week, and found I had a piece for the 'Green' subject in hand !( last post ) but... I didn't figure out this blog thing in time to post it.. But this week, I finally kinda caught the end of this bus.. XP I definitely need more practice, but it is such a great way to stimulate the imagination, and see everyone's works. Hopefully I can make more for this Illustration Friday. ^_^

Greens! the first post..

" Fresh greens. has lots of vitamins and fibers. good for the eyes to look at... and. not fishy." Kitosan, chewing away a fresh plate of greens.

Kitosan is a cat. young but wanna-be serious. not knowing much yet about life, but doing the most for what it knows so far.
a childish matureness, that's how it definds itself.

Finally, I made a blog. not sure what to post yet, but this should be a good start to keep track of time and thoughts.
Kitosan is a catish character I created a few years ago along with its cat friends.
It is based on a kitten me and my roomates adopted at the time, named Kite. Kite was very young but with a very serious and dog like personality. It was the first time ever I'd lived with a cat. It felt like inviting some wild animal to be your roommate. and Yap, having a cat is like making a new friend, but the kind of friends that you have the unspoken responsibility to take care of them , or say when they "allow" you to. but then, it's always nice when they are being sweet and making a cakes for you, like they care after all. So, after being scratched countlessly by Kite, I still have a good or 'interesting' impression of cats ,and remember the moments of watching traffic and people outside the window with Kite, or him making biscuits on my back. *.*

* Kitosan's story can be found in Afterworks 2.
