Schin's Charms

I had too much fun making these charms and photographing them..
I'll have them up in my Etsy shop when I have more time to photograph the rest!

Persephone Destroys the Light

Finally, the painting is done. I'll probably tweak it around for the next few days, but I think I want to get started on a Christmas card or something.

The picture next to it is a beautiful poster for Wong Kar Wai's 2000 movie In The Mood For Love. At first the movie was just normal to me, but I found myself going back to it over and over again. I love the music (the movie soundtrack has inspired many of my recent paintings), colors, story, actors (so classy DX), fashion etc. It's a rather slow movie to digest, but I love painting while watching it <3
The Criterion Collection version has some pretty awesome deleted scenes and alternative endings that can give a wider perspective of the movie.

Persephone & Hades 2

This is turning out to be very fun to paint! I think in a way it is the theme that I am most comfortable with: romantic environments, pretty girls, flowing cloth, flowers, etc. I do so miss painting like this.

In other news, I'll be at Katsucon 15. Come see me at the Artist Alley on February 13-15 2009, at Hyatt Regency Crystal City, Arlington, VA. I'll post the table numbers once I get em.

For fun, I made an Etsy shop. I'll add more products and stuff later. God I love Etsy!! I just want to buy everything in there.

Persephone & Hades

New painting, Persephone and Hades. I always liked their story.. it's got all the cool things: God of the Underworld, innocent virgin girl who eventually turns into a fearsome 'Iron Queen' and earns the title 'She Who Destroys the Light' (damn!), estranged mother-in-laws, captivity, change of seasons and.. pomegranates. Just so much fun.

Still working on the bodies, I don't think I'll ever be happy with it...


Finally Popcorn #1 is out, with my image Equus in it. The book is great quality, with a zillion awesome artworks and interviews inside. I can't stop flipping through it!
They used my old name 'Luciole' on it, and edited my blurb adding the 'stunning thing' *blush*. It was the silliest blurb too. Everyone listed their accomplishments and things, but I just wanted my platforms and bellbottoms..

Light 2

Must.. continue..


Gah! This is already pissing me off.

Border design

I made a sorta border sketch today. Feel free to print it out and use it as a memo or something.. but don't sell it!
