Cafe a la Noir

A couple days ago my sister Netsirk reminded me to draw her a skull that i had promised to make for her. Sometimes i need to be reminded a few times before shit gets done.

I sat in a coffee house not far from my Apartment. I drew, I wrote, and I gazed at the beautiful scenery around me listening to the Red House Painters and like a brick to the face, the idea was born.

What do you think?

The skull ended up being an abstract portrayal of a calavera a sugar skull, a treat used in "Day of the dead" celebration instead of the classic human skull look. The calavera are traditionally made of colorful designs. To keep with tradition i choose bright colors as well. Day of the Dead (dia de los muertos or all saints' day) is held on November 1 or November 2. Its a day to honor the dead and to celebrate the continuation of life.

This is to my sister.

Head for the Hills

When you need to relax whats better than hang out at th park. Watch the world do what it does best, be the dominating force that crumbles everything in its wake and yet allow things to grow and flourish.

1/2 Assed: Gamer

This is the first attempt at a web comic. Its called 1/2 Assed. Its a comic starring two lovable people, me (JJ a.k.a Sake) and my good friend (Andy a.k.a Biru).

Its about two guys hanging around, talking about themselves, art, gaming, culture or the everyday annoyances at work or around the city, San Francisco. The Idea started from another well known web comic, Penny Arcade , check it out if you haven't.

Today comic is in relation to Biru's attempt at mastering a PSP Game and the frustration he went through during a period of several weeks. The comic mimics the National threat level: Red(Severe), Orange(High), Yellow(Elevated), blue(Guarded), Green(low).
