CTN Expo 2011 & New Book!

Hey Everyone!

I know it's been a while since I last updated but I've been extremely busy lately working on my new book, "
For the Love of Lines," which is debuting at CTN Expo 2011! I'll be there this Friday through Sunday, at booth T-63!

I'm so excited! I got the books on Wednesday from
Keness, a local print shop that did a fantastic job with my books! I highly recommend printing with Ken if you live in the Bay Area and are looking for a quality print shop with awesome customer service!

If you can't make CTN, the book and many prints are available to order on my brand spankin' new ETSY STORE! ^__^ Here are some pics of the book and a sneak peek of what's inside!

I love CTN! Looking forward to seeing all my good friends and meeting new ones, talking to all the peeps I admire in the animation industry and attending their incredible and inspiring panels, and simply basking in the awesome vibe of the con atmosphere! I know whenever I come back from a convention I feel totally pumped and my passion reinvigorated to take on new and challenging projects--even despite the fact I've been killing myself over the previous projects just days before, hehe!

Anyway, CHEERS! To another amazing CTN!

Hey Guys!

Sorry about the lack of updates! I've been so busy with many big projects while simultaneously working at Zynga, so my schedule has been swamped for months. But though work's been busy, it's also been a blast so far, and I especially love all the fun and talented folks I get to work with everyday! Recently my friends Pascal Campion and Glenn Kim visited Zynga to have lunch with me and my buddies, Steph and Heather, and we had such a great time! Can't wait till next time when we'll all get to visit their studio!

"I wish they all could be California Girls..."

And for more great news, my friend and awesome Game Designer Jason Weezner was kind enough to let me use his booth for APE this year (he is working on a graphic novel of his own, so stay tuned!). So I will be at APE this weekend October 1-2 @ Booth #561, sharing with two very amiable, down-to-earth-cool and creatively talented friends of mine, Glenn Kim and Chris Frye!

Chris was previously a Production Manager at Fox, Effects Artist for Dreamworks, and Overseas Supervisor at HBO. He will be promoting his company, Musa Entertainment, so keep an eye out for the Musa banner with beautiful art by Glenn! Glenn is an amazing artist whose skills range from visual development for characters and environments, to even storyboarding! He previously worked at Pixar and now works at LOLApps making gorgeous art for Ravenskye City. Check out his site, and his educational, family-owned Sienna Ranch: Glenn will be selling his new book, Paper Sword (which debuted at Trickster around SDCC 2011) and LOL, Coffee Break (a compilation he did with his co-worker pals at LOLApps!).

"Jeepers Creepers, where'd you get those eyes?"

So come visit us this weekend! I'll have a couple of prints to sell, although the bulk of my latest work will be going into a book which will be debuting at CTN this November in Burbank! I haven't tabled at CTN before and I'm extremely excited!

By the way, for those of you who'd like a 10% discount on the CTN tickets, feel free to use my code: TSAGENX11 when you Register! ^__^

Hope to see you there!

Thanks to all those who stopped by at APE today! It was a very good first day, as I got to see old friends and new, even those I hadn't seen for years since Academy days! Thanks to friends who came by and hung with me at the booth to chat and catch up even for a bit, for Glenn's wife who made awesome bacon veggie wraps and brought us much-needed food (at the booth you don't realize how hungry you are until you start eating--and then you wolf it down with tears streaming down your face as if you hadn't eaten for weeks) and to Mike for driving all the way back home to get the box of prints I stupidly forgot this morning! And of course, to Glenn and Chris for being awesome company! ^__^

Coffee & Mangoes

Hi Guys!

A couple more I did recently...

Coffee & Bagels

 Rough colors for my submission for Girls Drawin' Girls' Vol. 4 book (my theme was Mango); I'll take another stab at coloring this one again with a more clean style later. For now I just wanted to convey the warm noon sunlight...
Have a great weekend! ^___^

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the lack of updates--for many months work and life kept me incredibly busy! I haven't had much time to tend to my own stuff while working in games, so I needed to take a break to take care of some personal work, see family, etc.

I'm very excited to have taken this huge step for my future (and peace of mind!). That means I'll probably be updating more often, I am expanding my portfolio towards feature animation/tv, and eventually, all those commissions some of you have been waiting on, will get done! ^__^; Also, though I am not tabling under Islands in the Sky for WonderCon, Fanime, or SDCC this year, I am planning to have my own booth at CTN Expo 2011!

Also, I will be participating in the Girls Drawin' Girls Vol. 4 Book! Check out the GDG blog!

My sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project will be on display June 18, 2011 at:

111 Minna Gallery

111 Minna Street
San Francisco, CA 94105

As always, it was so nice visit all the uber-talented artists at WonderCon this year! I'd like to give shoutouts to my friends Pascal Campion (who just recently reached his 2000th Daily Sketch!), Nidhi Chanani (see her recent interview on CNN!), Sean ''Cheeks" Galloway (check out his latest book "Cheeks:Freshly Squeezed" and his upcoming 2011 "Cheeks:Still Together" cover--it's SIIICK! He's currently taking pre-orders!), Ryan Benjamin, Fabian Molina (congrats for his successful new book "Animating in the Nude"!), Corinne Wong and Alan Lau at Ghostbot (who were donating 100% of their proceeds to help Japan!), Brianne Drouhard (check out her stunning "Billie the Unicorn" book!), Debbie Huey & Sherwin Viray (on their new Little Laura children's book!), Anthony HonHeather Dresbach, and Brendan Oshima ... all you guys helped make this year's WC memorable to me!

And to Mike who had guts enough to join me in cosplaying M.O.D.O.K. & M.O.D.A.M. which I made out of foam core, dismembered baby dolls and a cardboard bucket. XD

Ok, time for another Art Dump!
Some Daily Sketches!
I just came back from Tahoe!
Remembering how, as kids, even rain couldn't ruin a pool BBQ!
Inspired by a game I'm looking forward to...
Other work from my Sketchbook Project:
I love tea!

Finally I'd like to share with you a little web comic I'm working on (the comic is still in progress and has yet to be posted) called Monster Hunter Hunter, based on my favorite game, Monster Hunter! XD It was featured on the front of Capcom Unity!
