three day weekend

Got out of work early last Friday so I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and ended up drawing at the Japanese art section. Was hoping to draw some Western stuff but foot traffic in those areas was really heavy and there wasn't really anywhere to sit.

It's been a while since I've tried drawing something that's somewhat finished and it definitely felt like I've lost something. It's rather relaxing though..or maybe it was just the thought of the upcoming three day weekend.

Blue Jasmine

I haven't really seen any Woody Allen movies that aren't from at least 20 years ago, so I went to watch Blue Jasmine after seeing a review for it. Part of it too was the setting -- San Francisco. (It's always fun when you can recognize where almost every scene was shot. I miss living there a lot.) And the other reason would be the fact that being in NYC means that most limited release pictures(if not all) will definitely be showing in some theater here. So I went.

It was a decent picture..Cate Blanchett's character was just really sad. Felt like the best performance was from the lady playing her sister. The movie wasn't exactly funny but there were peals of laughter every now and then, which confused me. There were bits, but some that the audience found hilarious just weren't.

Throughout the entire movie though, there really was just one thing that bugged me: how the heck can somebody afford such a nice apartment with two kids and a grocery store bagger job in one of the most expensive cities in America?

(Also, can somebody explain why people clap at the end of movies?)

Another Uchuu Kyoudai fanart. Did it a little after posting the previous one. Should I have just put both in one post? Probably doesn't matter since no one's really on LJ anymore..

Really loving this show right now...

Drawing more fanart for this series would probably be good for practice, considering how different the style is from the usual stuff I draw..

I want this quarter to end as soon as possible but at the same time I find myself unwilling to do the things needed to make it turn out OK....

Changing nibs seems to affect how I want to draw.. not like it makes anything better.

Taken in Old Sacramento. The roommate and I have been going there every weekend since the quarter started because of photography class. It's not that bad, but there really isn't as much in these parts compared to cities like San Francisco. I really need to figure out how to use a camera properly. :/ Not everything can be tweaked in Lightroom.

Did this exercise in photography class wherein we had to make a composition based on objects from nature and crop a "view" from it. Recolored the blossom-like things. I am really terrible at creating arrangements.

I went to the library to get something I needed; I walked out with semi-related but unneeded books.

This happens almost every time.

And occasionally wishing I were living in an environment closer to that one but having lots of open space isn't so bad.

Nothing to show but classwork. Done with Illustrator for a super basic computer graphics class. As stupid as it sounds, it's only now that I realized that I actually could've put something together so I could skip the class, but on the other hand, it's fun to try to challenge myself to go a little farther in terms of concept with the simple exercises we're being given. Anyway, I'm having trouble completing things despite drawing everyday, but then it's not like I'm under some kind of obligation to be uploading things every time I post.

The apartment wall had these tiny markings that looked like fingernail imprints. I don't know how they got there but the roommate and I thought they were rather freaky, especially since it's a whole bunch of them. So we took the test prints we did and tacked them to cover it up since management hasn't done anything about it although it had been brought up to them months back.



That kinda solves the problem.





Kind of a close-up of the previous entry. Somehow the image on the washed silkscreen looks more unique. Perhaps I should replicate the design through some means.
