Vulcans cannot lie

It is illogical how in love I am with Spock. I haven't geeked out about a character this much since Severus Snape.
I am now a new fan of JJ Abrams Star Trek movies after seeing the second one in theaters and then going home to watch the first for the first time this weekend. I feel like I'm cheating on Star Wars, but seriously these movies are soooo good. You'd have to be out of your Vulcan mind to not enjoy them, whether or not you were a die-hard Trekkie to begin with ( I myself never really got into the original series, I've always remained faithful to the Force... until now ).  Can't wait for another, because these movies were so successful and amazing there's just no way they wouldn't think to make a third. I'm also excited to see how Abrams handles the new Star Wars movie Disney is going to make. Fascinating.

And just because I don't think I've thrown enough Star Trek puns and Spock references at you, I'll end it on one more:

Live long and Prosper!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

A quick drawing I did for Mother's Day, for my Mom and Grandmother. Inspired by the fact that my Grandmother's favorite animal is a bear, and because what movie better celebrates mothers than Brave?

I decided to keep it around the style of my first Brave drawing, with just three colors.

one big illustration update

The first project up was "visual development for a an original video game."  My game was called "Ku'uaki" which is also the name of the main character. 

The basis of the story is that you play a hawaiian guardian spirit named Ku'uaki, whose job is to watch over the native flora and fauna. The island is in danger by Pele, the Volcano Goddess, who threatens to blow the volcano's top at any moment. In order to face Pele, Ku'uaki must first go up against the island's other gods and goddesses in various challenges; such as surfing, sledding, and racing. With each challenge she wins, Ku'uaki receives a tattoo that gives her a special skill/power that god/goddess possesses. Once she has beaten the other gods, only then does she have the strength to face the final boss, Pele, on her volcano.
