another wonderful trip to LA, this time to the Natural History Museum. pardon the stifled squeals in my head, it's just that THEY HAVE FREAKING DINOSAUR SKELETONS AAHH
and yes, of course, they are totally the reason why i went down. *____*
back to the Thinkspace Gallery, this time for Joao Ruas's show. found out about artist Andrea Offermann too, who had a beautiful exhibit of glass, oil, acrylic and other media.. i think. i remember the glass part.
hello, Gallery Nucleus. hello, Justin Sweet's work. hello, art of 3Kicks Studio.
and how was your weekend? mine was fanbloodytastic.
so amazing and surreal to see the work of artists you stalk admire in real life, the feeling is just really different! i was first introduced to the delicate art of Audrey Kawasaki about 4 years ago, and i've been in love with her work ever since.. never thought i'd be able to see her gorgeous art up close, but there i was! Mari Inukai's whimsical pieces were another recent discovery as well - how can you not love those characters? being able to create figurines from my own designs someday would be so cool.
trying to go to as many exhibitions/galleries/museums as i can when i'm here, after all i don't know if i'll ever get chances like these again. the amount of exposure and experience is vastly different as compared to back in sg in the end.
come Nov, there's going to be an exhibition by Joao Ruas! unbelievably lucky to be in the vicinity of all these awesome shows by my favorite and fantastic artists. i feel so thankful *____*
my school life begins again in a whole new world! (cue Aladdin soundtrack)
so here's a bunch of sketches for a class assignment - we're supposed to design a playing card.. IN ILLUSTRATOR. not exactly my forte, but i'm going to take a stab at it.
