Brain Animation

Wook and I sit 3 steps away from each other at work. But due to our heavy butts, we mostly talk through  chat, instead of visiting each other's desks.

And this is what she wrote to me today.
I though that was a brilliant idea, and it recalled to me the time when I went through my painful puberty.
I always felt like my brain was ingrown.

Perhaps there was a playful kitty messing with my "brain yarn ball". I wanted so badly that kitty to knit a beautiful sweater or something, so I could feel like a happy teen.

That long lasting puberty left me when I hit 26........shhhit,maybe it wasn't just puberty. 

 But a long story short, I liked the idea of animating my brain. I definitely will start with a brain fart scene:)

Ps:I am working on editing a longer interview than what I usually do. Please don't go away too far, I will entertain you with my daily drawings and motion doodles.:)

Victor and Margot

Walking with a hairy lady and a gentledog is my favorite thing to do, after a long day of work.
am I talking like an old lady?:)

I was just going to post a drawing but then I did this motion doodle. It's so stupid it's fun:)

Dear Shepard,

Last Thursday(9.16.10), Shepard Fairy had his solo show opening at Subliminal Projects.
I was so ready for his interview!
But I wasn't aware of the frantic scene!

and......I was too hungry to wait in line to get in the gallery!..I know it's lame.

So I drove back with tears in my eyes.
I was going to ask him about how he is able to balance two-worlds. His roots are in the street art world but he is gradually spreading his branches into museums and galleries as a fine artist. Does he miss the thrill of "paste and run"? 

I didn't get to ask him any of my questions but the sweet potato chips were yummy that night.

p.s: As we all know those obama posters were done by Shepard Fairy and I hope I don't get into any trouble using them here.:)

I wanted do something bigger than me,bigger than money and bigger than work.

When I asked Paolo about himself, he said "It's funny to talk about me because this Echo Park Film  Center is not about me, this place is about community, about the giving."

The more you share, the more you have. It goes against what capitalism and materialism teach us. but the people who think about the bigger picture rather than themselves are truly happy people and I confirmed that while I interviewed Paolo. And those people have auroras which heat our hearts:)

We need more people like Paolo Davanzo.
We need more social centers like EPFC.
We need more diversity.
We want to see more than boobs and robots.
We don't need anymore Starbucks:)

Thanks for giving the interview, Paolo.
Thanks for watching.
