Woah woah woah (ㆆ▃ㆆ) life update?!?

HI!

I know what you’re thinking. ” ಠ_ಠ The hell, man. Where did you go?!”

Yeah. A lot of stuff has happened since I last posted. Like a lot. Damn. My last post was in May? BEFORE I GRADUATED?!?!

Ok! LET’S RECAP WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE MAY! I finished all of my projects and they were all awesome, except for one which stopped working properly on the day of our last show. Yay? (;-_-)

Then I graduated. I now officially have an MFA in Animation and Digital Arts. Officially. Like, I got my diploma in the mail already and everything! I attended my commencement ceremony in Singapore, and then in New York. The Singapore one was nice and our teacher gave a very personalized farewell speech. The New York one was also nice, in the sense that our commencement speaker was Martin Scorsese. It was not nice in the sense that…. whatever. That’s not important. The important thing is that I was super happy to graduate!

THEN. I was in New York for about 2 weeks hanging with my family. Vacation! THEN it was off to Boston for a summer internship at MIT Lincoln Labs. It was great. I did some programming stuff. I met lots of cool people. Met up with some old friends. I met someone and fell in love. I walked around a lot.

THEN THAT INTERNSHIP ENDED AND I WENT BACK HOME TO PUERTO RICO. I had 10 days. Then I started my current job at J. Walter Thompson, the advertising agency. I’m working lots. My heart got broken (lol I’m ok). I’m trying to keep better in touch with my friends now that I’m on the same side of the world as most of them. I’m earning money and paying off my massive student loans. (*´▽`*)YAAAAAAAY!

But aside from how fascinating student loans are, my thesis got selected for 3 film festivals.

Three.

Film.

Festivals.

OH AND DON’T LET ME FORGET THAT I GOT AN HONORABLE MENTION IN ONE OF THEM. WHAT WHAT!!! So. Awesome.

😀 OK! THIS POST IS LONG ENOUGH!

(ΘεΘ;) art project hw1

So, school has started once again (kinda lame) but I just finished my first Art class homework. and….. OH GOD IT’S SO BAD! D:

I started off with a simple enough drawing of a vejigante, because I’m a little homesick blah blah blah. And then y art teacher comes up to me and says “You know what would be awesome? If you made and printed the mask!”

…. so…. After about a week of “OH GOD HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS?!?!” I came up with this:

Mask parts

yeaaaaaah… It’s all futuristic-y looking. I got a lot of inspiration from Tron (I was listening to the soundtrack while coloring it all) I messed up on the snout though D: (It’s the yellow one) SO… I snipped snipped away! Haha! Ha ha… ha… ha……

Anyway. Here’s what it looks like all together:

Rawwwwwr!
