Some joke tshirt designs for Fetchnotes that I might just print out through shirts.io by myself. The dog is my favorite.

I had some free time on the UM Cintiq tablets after drawing some tshirt designs for Fetchnotes, so I drew my homies, the Forest Boys: Matt Brandly, Joe Ostrow, Matt Stephens, and Joe Hermann.

I call these “Puff Faces”, but I’m pretty sure this is a pretty common style.

I’ll draw more Puff Faces later probably and put them [ here ].

Music music music music music!

These past 2 weeks, I did some quick covers. This one is a quick cover of The Fratellis’ Whistle For The Choir. A little bit ago, I did a cover of Connie Francis’ Stupid Cupid.

Matt Brandly and I wrote the beginning of a song temporarily called ‘Stars’. You can listen to what we have so far [ here ] with Matt on the guitar and me on vocals. The lyrics are a little silly - that’s entirely my fault, sorry. 

Also! Lately I can’t get enough of this song by YG’s new rookie duo, AKMU called 200%!!! It’s adorable and it’s making me want to make some music!

Whew that’s a lot of links. I hope everyone here in Michigan (and elsewhere) is having a great time with this nice 60° weather!

A drawing of SZA based on this beautiful photo.
Here’s the process video: [ x ]

Did another study today. I didn’t even realize this was SZA, the singer on this awesome track with xxyyxx and Chance The Rapper.
Been working on some stuff this past week, so expect more updates when those things get finished! :)

When I was a kid, I read some books. Mostly stuff like The Secrets of Droon and Harry Potter and the Baby-Sitters Club. As I got older, books didn’t seem as interesting to me anymore. Maybe I was reading the wrong books or maybe nobody thought reading was cool anymore - whatever the reason was, I began to believe that I just “hated reading”.

For a solid 5 or 6 years of my life (middle school through high school), I told everybody, “HAH BOOKS. READING. LOL I don’t read” and made a joke out of the fact that I read very, very few books. I actually did a lot of reading throughout those years, but they weren’t books - they were articles and (90% of the time) fanfictions.

A tiger painting! Acrylic paint, 2 hours, 16x20”.

Last week, my friend Yacob - who loves tigers - messaged me and asked if I wanted to paint tigers with him. Neither of us have a ton of experience with paint so I said “Sure!!”
2 hours later, I produced this lady here. 
Painting is a lot of fun! I learned a lot about acrylics while doing this and I’m already thinking of other stuff I want to paint. I’m so inspired by Yacob going through with his impulses, so I’m going to try to experiment and do things out of my comfort zone more often, as well.
Reference was used for the painting.

Last night I did this quick project with Michelle because they’re having a party in the Duderstadt connector to try and get people to sublease their house for the summer hahaha! (if you’re looking for summer housing in Ann Arbor, email her)

Plum mockups! Plum is an app centered on content creation that I’m working on for pleasure and also for my Independent Study - I say pleasure because I came up with the idea and then decided I might as well get credit for it at the same time. Good deal good deal.

I don’t want to say too much about it yet since I’m still figuring out details, but I’m really excited to work on this project! Evan Hahn, a very good friend of mine who is probably the best JavaScripter in the Univers…ity, has already made the first version of the server and began working on a v.0.0.1 of an Android app for it! I’ll be making the iOS app!

The Koita character is not mine and belongs to the creator of EYEZMAZE - one of the best sites ever.

The Fudo character is mine, however, and was created for an app called Fudo that Evan and I made for MHacks 1 back in 2012. It’s kind of broken now, though. You’re supposed to be able to feed it cupcakes and snakes but now it just kind of cries. Maybe you can fix it?

PS. Maymay (the sample author of “Remembrance”) is my little sister and she’s awesome.

Worked on Grocery Buddy, my group’s iOS app for my Mobile Apps for Entrepreneurs class. These are some mockups that I made in the past week or so.

I’ve been working with UITableViews and detail views and whew. I should really power through some more tutorials before attempting anything else. iOS is one of those things that you half learn through experience, and half learn through doing tutorials. I think most programming languages are like that - you really have no idea what’s possible and what to search for when you have a problem so it’s better to get to know your ground with some tutorials before you begin anything serious and ‘wild west’.
