Farewell to Arthur C. Clarke

One of my favourite author in the world, Arthur C. Clarke has passed away at age 90. His masterpiece like 'The Nine Billion Names of God' used to make my heart swell as a young girl. And his novel 'Childhood's End' is still one of my favourites. It had such a hope for humanity, where it's evolving, despite of all the hell. He wanted to see an actual evidence of extra terrestrial life and people's wider use of green energy for his 90's birthday. Neither happened. Hopefully, I get to see those soon.

This sketch was done while listening to Nightwish's 'End of All Hope'. I thought it was still in progress, but after few days, I kind of like it as it is.

This is my grocery list. Nothing but junk food, stuff I don't need, but I bought them nonetheless.My friend Ian and I hung out on Friday. He told me about crazy adventures he's been up to. He told me about Montreal's Three Monkeys store. I am hoping to visit one day. He's also going to learn French through jexplore program. Then travel France. I thought it was a wonderful idea. I looked it up, and it's too late to apply. *sigh* I miss traveling. I won't be going anywhere until I pay off my million dollar OSAP.

Conspiracy Theory

This is an illustration for the recent Ryerson Review of Journalism article. The article was about some truth-seeking journalists moving away from the main stream media, and submerging into Conspiracy Theory culture.

I must say, when I first went this rough, (one of three roughs. The other two were 'serious' ones), I was sure it wasn't going to be chosen. I almost said, 'I know this one won't fly, but just having fun'. What do you know, the good people of RRJ chose this one! I was so happy. Isn't it every illustrator's dream? Drawing aliens, space craft and chemtrail?!? I was extremely depressed about missing Bepo+Mimi show my teachers were involved in (due to the crazy amount of snow), but working on this piece surely brighten up my evening.

Just for a fun loving Conspiracy Theory people, there is a store - called Conspiracy Culture - on Queen Street, Toronto devoted to such subject. I never knew it existed before. I'm looking forward to visit that place as soon as I move to Toronto this summer.

This is just in! Ryerson Review of Journalism website uploaded the article with my illustration on it just now. If you click the image below, you can view the complete article.
