FRUSTRATED



Winter break has been really relaxing. I came back to Vancouver last weekend to spend the holidays with my family.


I've been trying to be a good sister and taking care of my siblings and all... cooking them food, giving  them rides everywhere, doing their laundry etc...



I made my brother's favorite chicken drumsticks today. So he could bring them to school as lunch the next morning.




They turned out quite well. I was pretty proud of myself. 
I thought to myself, I'll make a good wife/ mother one day...




With that thought, I happily left the kitchen to take a shower...







When I came back.... I saw my sister....




Yeah, I never knew preparing for high schooler's lunch can be such a pain... This was even more frustrating than Maya crashing on me...

push for it



The last two weeks have been busy..  Nevertheless the process has been fun. I 've learned so much about painting, animation and story this semester. I can see winter vacation coming in less than a month. What's even closer - thanksgiving break! Though I have a feeling that those two breaks might be spent working on Push Pull exaggerated and then preping for prepro...


Here's my DFA Valuables painting
Alota stuff needs fixing still... I kind of ran out of time on the background...




And also...  Push Pull natural!

My character's name is Boris. He is a failing student at the Ninja Training Academy for Beginners. I am responsible for all aspects.


special thanks to Matt Sullivan for all the lighting and compositing help!


starting my exaggerated push pull now. Final push before break!

In N Out




so... I am two weeks into my internship at Adobe.
I'm honestly having a blast!

instead of sharing my internship stories, I decided to tell you all what happened today on a sunny sunday.






Monica, another Adobe intern, and I were walking down the sidewalk after getting lost in the garage. But that's another story for another time.





we were just strolling down the sidewalk and chatting about stuff. we were completely unaware of the police car sirens in the background.


so when the sirens abruptly stopped... the birds stopped chirping
it was like the silence (calm) before the storm.


I did a dramatic turn back... to see what's going on


we couldn't believe what we saw with our big asian eyes... 






we saw this giant guy sprinting towards us



and police cars powersliding around the corner


i saw one officer getting out... about to grab his gun




at that moment, me and Monica both froze in place


both of us had this image in mind.. of the big guy taking both of us hostage in front of the police


we looked at each other.... and RANNNNN



we should have run... but instead... we fast walked..




the moment we turned around the corner... we heard the police yelling at the guy and taking him down...




that was enough adventure for one day...







and then we all went to grab in n' out burger while listening to a homeless man talking to us about his film major and computer softwares. 


-THE END-

End of another year!


so I realized that I have not updated my blog since christmas. shame on me...
so heres a lil catch up time!

before I do that... heres Sit Stand!







summer vacation just started for me. Im now getting a sweet 10 hours of sleep everyday in Vancouver



sophmore year has been so much fun. much of that fun came from living with some awesome roomates. we live together in our very awesome Canadian apartment. My roomates and I are adults and we do not fight over meaningless things.




situations like this don't happen too often...

"Get outaaaa my BATHROOOOOM!!! use your OWNNN!"






and we never bring our fight to professional places such as the computer labs...

(please do not attempt this at home....)








so many fun moments happened this year


including nearly getting sprayed by a Siberian tiger...





or watching my toe nail fall off after bike accident(s) 







I also met some quite amazing people

and families


camping on a beach!

and first time sitting in an open top swing!



And I went to a college graduation for the first time!
 congrats seniors!



7,8,9 and roomates!

It was bittersweet to see everyone go; but we can't expect anyone to slow down or wait for us to catch up. Thanks everyone for a wonderful year! Can't wait to see what you guys do in the industry!



oh and I'll be starting my Adobe internship in San Jose, CA this June! I'm super excited! :)
