Hullo there. You've come to visit me, haven't you?

Well...The thing is, I'm not such an interesting person. I can say and do some interesting stuff once in a while, but bear with me if I become boring more often than not.

I am attending the Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications (formerly IDEA) at Capilano University. I study illustration, design, and digital media. My determination is in design while my passion is in illustration. (I've also passion in animation and baking)

A big thinker and ambitious terminator, I'm often swimming in my imagination while scrounging by with whatever money I've saved that will inevitably go towards school.

I'm back! For the time, maybe.
It's like writing my graduation entry all over again.

Some reasons why I've been away from DA for so long. 1) school (of course!) 2) school work (that makes sense!) 3)laziness (tsk tsk)
This year has been very exciting and rewarding for me. No longer schmucked amongst less-enthused high school kids, I'm surrounded by a wonderful class of 26 of varying ages with all sorts of skillsets and experiences to share.

First semester was like a long orientation to our new environment and new 4-year long classmates. I've made some connections with some 2nd and 3rd years, and they're great folks with big passions. Collaboration and social events are always encouraged, and we definitely went all out for Christmas. In fact, when we all got our own giant packs of art sets (that's supposedly supposed to last to our fourth year) at the very beginning of the year, sure felt like the best early Christmas present of all our lives.
Second semester felt as fresh as the first term, but with the difference of actually knowing everybody, and with another Christmas boom. Christmas came at us again when we got our own Macbook pro (that's not technically ours til end of program). We also got some new instructors with different teaching methods, and it was more or less quite a change from the previous instructors. There was also a chance to apply for a study abroad trip to Japan, and although I wasn't selected in the end, there's still next year and I'm keeping myself optimistic for that one day I get to go.

There are some highlights of my experience so far. First are the atmosphere and instructing abilities, which proved beyond my expectations. With collab being so highly regarded, even the faculty encourage it, supporting us in making social events and ultimately making class as great as possible. Then there's my knowledge curve, which rose exponentially since prior to graduation. Yeah, of course there's art history, but they're divided into design and illustration, and we're learning not just historical painters, but designers and printmakers as well, historical and modern. Man, I wish I could have gone to Stefan Stagmeister's Happy Show today. If you don't know him, go look him up!
What I've learned about design in uni is very different from what I've learned in high school (although high school was very much hands-on on the printmaking side than design itself) and both my skills in design and even illustration have improved considerably. Everything I hated or was simply ignorant of, I now have a stronger grasp of.

I'll post my work from now on, both works done within the year and current projects.
For now, toodles.

Oh, p.s., I have Instagram. Haha. If I'm once again on hiatus from DA, you'll most likely find me far more active on Instagram now.

Rose Red, Snow White, and Bear
"...and he stretched himself by the fire and growled contentedly and comfortably. It was not long before they grew quite at home..." – Rose Red and Snow White

To kick-start a fresh new round of art after a long, long, long hiatus from DA, I introduce to you an illustration done during my first year of the bachelor Design in Visual Communication Program (aka IDEA).
I'm kind of posting reverse chronologically, as I would have to dig through all my packed up worked just to find the oldest work.
Prior to university, I terribly disliked backgrounds, colouring and basically any other form of media. Art school has changed me, and I have found utmost appreciation for traditional media, better understanding of colour and atmosphere, and I found myself quite able to do backgrounds (at least not crazily detailed ones). Ultimately, I'm very proud of the progress and work I've done recently.

Brief: Illustrate a scene in a children's story, using ink and watercolour.
Original Size: 8"X10"
Medium: black ink, watercolour, pencil crayon, illustration board

Thank you Void! It has been a long time!
School has been very busy for me, and I'm not very active on dA anymore, but I still see everyone's great works.
One day we can talk for longer. Thank you again~

I must add, I miss the time...
When we used to draw together.
You know.. On Iscribble.net, moo..

A lot of things happened in my life..
Like, my mother abandoned? me...
And m-my brother is far, far away.
We aren't in good term anymore, moo.

I know I suddenly disappeared, but, I am back.
A lot of things happened in my life and all, but..

I have been wondering what had happened to you!
I'm good, if you must know, but I would like to know how YOU are.
Don't make me worry for two years.
I miss you Alis!
