I switched over to a tumblr for all my quick sketches now. This blog will be reserved for finished pieces I guess...? I dunno yet.

Whoa whoa whoaaaaa it's 2013!!! How did that happen?! Time flies when you're having fun. My blog is now threeeeee years old! And of course keeping with tradition here is my annual recap/resolution post. If you're at all interested here is 2010 and 2011 and 2012.
So to recap my resolutions from last year.

Exercise more...cycling WELL IM DOING YOGA REGULARLY

GET A FULL TIME IN HOUSE JOB SUPER WIN
So all in all not too bad a year?? I looked through one of my earliest blog posts and it talked about how working on a production/concept team for movies would be the coolest job ever. Well, two and a half years later I've gotten into the entertainment industry and am designing for a new children's television show that will come out this year. I am thoroughly enjoying my job and my life. I've had a ton of new experiences out here in LA and met some really great friends. I've learned a lot in these past years and I know I still have a long way to go but I feel pretty solid about what I've done so far. So without further ado, here are my resolutions for 2013:
Draw everyday and update this blog
Stay fit - take a dance class?
Cook more and bring lunch to work more often
Read more...or at least listen to more audiobooks
Improve drawing/design/painting skills...specifically environments, mecha, and vehicles - more classes
Practice my Chinese
Make that website I keep telling myself to make
