Sorry I haven't posted in forever in a day I've been getting my working black man on. OK SO TO UPDATE YOU ON ELGIN SMITHS Life. I'm still working both jobs at the Gary Comer Youth Center teaching art to the 3rd to 8th graders, and the Cook County Juvenile Center teaching ceramic sculpture. Both Jobs have been going great. My students have really stepped up there game in the juvenile. We had an art show for their ceramic work they've been creating. The work had great reviews. It’s also landed me another Job at the Juvenile. Starting in August I'll be commissioned to instruct the kids on how to create a zine about the history of the Juvenile. I went to my first meeting last week and everyone seems to be excited about the development of this project. I was also approached by some of the guards about putting more art work in the visiting room so my coworkers and I have been getting student work together to display.
As for the youth center we had our end of the year art show/award ceremony. I was very pleased with the turn out, I felt so proud to see all of the work my students created throughout the year. I also gave out awards to the top two students in my Toon Studio class, Jade L(age 7), and Miracle B(age 8). Giving out awards and seeing all of my kids work made me feel proud to be a teacher.
Besides trying to be the best teacher I can be I’ve been working a few commissions for possible comic/TV shows, also been trying to keep My Shmos up. So I'm going to try to show you guys the drawings you have missed.
I saw the Movie Kick-ASS and Loved it. I made a new Shmo for my kids coloring book collection so I kept the logo PG.
Me and my art/dance crew buddy Vicky Kao decided to draw each others main characters. She drew Choi and I drew her comic hero Scruballz. If you wanna learn more about this crazy dude you can check out her Deviant page.-http://scruballz.deviantart.com/ OR http://portfolio.colum.edu/vickykao/home
Robert and I were at it again this time going for a commission for this new tv/comic series. I can't tell too much about this project just that I was asked to submit a suit design and comic layout based on a few descriptions the producers gave me. In the end they didn't choose my design but they still want me to be apart of the team So that's great news for me. I'll keep everyone updated once I find out more.
I was drawing some random Ninja dude ended up looking like Adult Gohan from DBZ
I call these little shorts granny Tales. This one is an old story my Grandma use to tell me about her and brother Prinis. One day they were walking home from a days work and my Unk stopped in mid stride just to tell my grandma her knees were cracking and shaking so much he thought they broke.....
NEW CHOI Drawing.. I don't know if Ive ever let people see the real Choi the person my comic hero is based off of but I saw an out fit he was wearing and I was like I HAVE TO USE this for reference.
Well Thats all for now...
