A precursor to an epic adventure! Part 1 | The Hive

For anyone around Ann Arbor MI, The Hive has been  a big step into doing things after graduating. This is the link to my latest article and soon there will be more!

My haiku about Ann Arbor, MI


I don’t want to leave this “Untitled” but as of right now I don’t have a name for it. This was a piece I did last year based on the idea of man made objects are taking over nature but nature will always find a way in the end. I posted this piece but this is a much better photo with more detail shots of it.

Made my first 3D piece in Adobe Illustrator CS6. I know its pretty simple but they said Dice was a great start to getting use to these tools and styles. I feel mostly successful. I wish I went back and made them either more white or add funky colors to it instead. 

I have taken an new approach to my artwork. During my journey to visit my mom’s home country, the Philippines, I have gathered up inspiration through the culture, the people living here, the traffic, country side, the wonders of this country and the city love.

My new works will consist of interpretations of the life I see. The beauty, the endearing, romantic and the crude.

My biggest influence and inspiration is the matter in which our bodies are made out of. All the atoms that connect to create our bodies. I want to explore more into this subject using styles of forms such as lines, color, and texture to create abstract, elegant, and detailed blue prints of the human body. 

These are my studies for my Intro To Time Based Media class. 

Some studies I’m working on for my project in class. The top one is pap marbling on illustration paper. The figures are done with illustration pen.

The 2 bottom studies are just figures drawn with graphite.
