Beauty is an intangible thing; can not be fixed on the surface, and the wear and tear of old age on the body cannot defeat it.

Trip to see the libraries

Posted on Thursday 13 December 2012

Haven’t posted for a while on my own blog. Too much facebooking and not enough love for my blog!

I just came back from visiting the libraries Sketchtravel funded to help build in Cambodia and Sri Lanka.
It was by far the most incredible trip I have ever had in my life. It was an intense and eye opening journey.

Once I’m done with all the end of year craziness at work, I’ll post sketches and photos. In the meantime, enjoy a few I posted on facebook already.

Too Busy To Vote?

Posted on Tuesday 6 November 2012

I’m really busy these days.

The film production I’ve been on has hit the crunch mode and I have been locked in at work for nights and weekends these days. Stepping out of work during the day is nearly impossible.

With our 10 month old becoming more and more mobil and mischievous, our attention must be on him 24/7 at home.

We also just moved. Piles of boxes don’t look like they will disappear anytime soon.
Still no internet thanks to wonderful Comcast who thinks they are giving us a favor coming to install internet for the 4th try.

And really… I’m not a political person. My daily routine is based on thinking about cartoons. My sister is a very good political journalist but often times my cartoon brain can’t follow all the stuff she talks about.

My vote doesn’t count anyway, right? Isn’t California a locked state anyway?

But

I am going to vote today because it is important.

The presidential race is neck and neck close.
The beliefs and policies between the candidates are VERY different. The world will be different depending on who takes over the white house the next 4 years.
It’s not just about your extra $ you may get from your tax cut. It is about our children’s future.

So no matter who we support, let’s make sure we vote.
The world is too uncertain to not care.

Random sketchbook sketch for my new project.

The direction is changing everyday, seems like… But it is surely teaching me a ton.

Sketchtravel Museum Project! —first Kickstarter experience!

Posted on Sunday 26 August 2012

As many of you know, Sketchtravel English Edition is out at last. To help bring excitement for the release of English edition, we are planning a special exhibition at Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco in September!

It is the complete version of the show we had at Pixar last year
Now, here is where we can use your help.
In order to make it possible, we need to raise money for framing and printing.(about $12,000)
If we don’t raise $12,000 within next 4 weeks, this show will be canceled.

Sketchtravel has always been successful due to its grassroots marketing. If you can back our project and/or spread the news…
Make sure you keep eye on the thank you gifts. We have some amazing thank you gifts ready for your contribution!

Thank you very much

スケッチトラベルを英語版出版を記念して、SFカトゥーンアート美術館にてこの九月、特別展を予定しています。ただし、フレーム代とプリント代12,000ドルをこのキックスターターで集めければ実現しません。
皆さん是非ともご協力ください。
アマゾンアカウントがあれば簡単に寄付できます。(素晴らしいサンキューギフトがもらえます!)

よろしくお願いします!
