Creative Selves II

I started this blog 5 years ago. Can you believe that much time has actually past?
I have these scattered blogs across blogger, wordpress and tumblr.  None are cohesive, and well, zero are that active. But I have found other ways to share.
Facebook has been wonderful.

I came back to write a post to announce something relatively major.  I am embarking on 3 distinct projects, without impacting my real job (which in and of itself is also very demanding and technically creative).

1) I am in the process of writing a novel.
2) I am embracing my technical strength in hardware and software, let's not shun it!  My friend and I are actively working on an education program to help kids learn to code and build stuff.  We're going to see how far this goes.
3) I am starting a side project, which is too early to share with all of you.  But it involves art, design and writing -- and its useful in a handbook kinda way.

Will keep you posted.  For now, follow me on Wattpad!  Some day, some time, I may actually come back to, but for now, there's too many other things to discover.

Totoro Madness

I love Totoro. My wife's first present to me was a drawing she made when we were 15 years old of Totoro.  We were only friends then, but for whatever reason, I kept that drawing and framed it. It was 3 years later before we ended up together!  Fate? Totoro magic? Pure coincidence? Who knows. But Totoro sure loves slides! Whee...

Maurice Sendak

It surprises me just how much artists impact our life. When I heard of Sendak's passing today, I was compelled to create something. His story 'Where the Wild Things Are' reflect upon a childhood that I can still taste.

TCAF 2012

We made it to TCAF! We had some car trouble along the way, and ended up changing the battery @ my dad's place (Thanks dad for the tools and help!). We loved TCAF today, and ended up seeing Meg Hunt ( and Scott Campbell (, amongst many many other artists. But those two were the big draw for me. I've been following Meg's stuff for 3 years or so, and Scott's stuff only for a month! We had a great time, looking forward to next year.

TCAF 2012 (almost here)

I'm pretty excited about TCAF 2012! Should be a great show. In a pop culture nostalgia phase. Check out Vader + Totoro. (Drawn to OK Computer playing in the background)
