milestone: rewind

Photos made on March 13, 2009. For photobook, “Rakuen”

Above are the 3 people who have stuck by me in the awkward years, the depression (often reoccurring) , and into first year of college. Despite going to different schools, we’ve managed to pull together through thick and thin. Most of all, they’ve managed to gain the ability to kick me in the face when I go haywire. Thank you for friendship, minus all the sappy BFF bracelet crap, you guys are awesome.

5 years, a kajillion more to go.

kissing the christmas killer

November 23, 2009

From Yoko Kanno’s studio album, 23 o’clock Music (23時の音楽)featuring Maaya Sakamoto

A song that fights the demons in sleep.

I was heaven sent
Traded for the words I swore that
Every piece of me would still belong
Forever and a day
To someone who cared
Whatever there may be
Ever there may be

You came along
Now I’m going all against the
Promises that I made, and here I am
Falling for your love
Or am I lost in heaven
I don’t know any more
Don’t know any more

Judgement will be made
On a Christmas day
Hiding in the snow, he’s prying me

“Toys if you’ve been good
Knives if you have not”
Better steal a kiss ‘fore I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone

change of heart

November 19, 2009

So what’s a person to do on a sick day besides consume hefty amounts of tynenol?

Stay on Tumblr all day and do Illustration homework. I am surprised I was productive. Clicky for a bigger view.

Perspective project for Illustration called Change of Heart, where we depict a moment in our lives where we literally change in perspective of a person of a place. It was done by switching back and forth from Photoshop and Illustrator, attempting to emulate Nakamura Yusuke but putting my own twist on it.
