 ’Mukashi Mukashi’ & ‘A New Tenant’

I was asked to contribute to the Heroes in A Half Shell: A TMNT Tribute Exhibition for Gallery Nucleus, which will be opening this Saturday.

I thought it would be fun to show Splinter and crew with Shredder’s vanquished helmet, only kicking it back to the feudal age of Japan it’s based off of. No mutations and a samurai helmet.

I grew up with the 90’s TMNT and finding out that the new Krang was no longer the campy robot kangaroo pouch with alien brain baby left me nostalgic. It felt like Krang had left his out dated model back in ‘87 for a shiny new ride, and I couldn’t help thinking it’s probably still sitting around somewhere collecting dust, overgrown with plants.

30 Day Challenge // Day 26 // Your Favorite Sweet Food

Let them eat cake~

I always tell my girl she doesn’t have cakes because she’s Hispanic, she has flan. Caramel Crema doe~ And I couldn’t forget about the ladies, so have yourself some cake too. Cupcakes!

I know, I know it’s been a while. And it will be another long while. I’m just too busy. I probably won’t be free to make another gif till July, which is why I did two.

But for now, eat up!

'Blade Runner' for The New Republic

For an article about Oscar Pistorius. The author was making a point that in South Africa there is a culture of fear. Apartheid brainwashed most white citizens to think they were constantly at risk of attack or robbery. Many in South Africa cling to guns because they live constantly afraid and put themselves inside a shell. So essentially, Pistorius either murdered his girlfriend because he meant to, or apparently in a fit of racist fear killed her by accident.

'En route' for Entertainment Weekly

For the News and Notes section of Entertainment Weekly. It was for an article about the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality. Nothing says imagination like a kid in a cardboard box, so wanted to show the VR transforming the box into something crazy. This was a very fun piece~

30 Day Challenge // Day 25 // Something From Mythology

Though I’m not really a fan of where the story has gone, I’ve always loved the mythology of Doctor Who. Recently the 50th Anniversary depicted a Gallifreyan painting which was a moment in time captured in a picture, literally. So, I was curious about what a Gallifreyan sculpture might look like. I imagined it as a TARDIS in a time where everything is gone and all that’s left of these relics is the box of time they contained and the shell has withered leaving only scrambled, fluctuating moments in time from when it was alive. Almost like it’s dreaming.

30 Day Challenge // Day 24 // Something That Represents Your Favorite Culture

I’m Buddhist and I’ve always loved the imagery even before I was. The wrathful deities from Tibetan and Mahayana art always fascinated me as a kid. They were like transformations the gods took on in battle. Like a monster magical girl I guess. His is name is Mahakala. Power Prism Make Up.
