scavenger hunt monster?

while "monster's lair" may seem like an extremely cliché theme.. our monster is different. he lives in a cave somewhere far off in the forests of northern Europe, where he developed a secret fascination towards city life. he goes off to residential areas at night and gathers old furniture and other things discarded by humans. oh and he enjoys abstract paintings. a lot.

cityscape inspired by the shapes and motifs of the piano.

some landscapes

year of tiger

This is a tiger. not to be confused with a dragon (which parade the streets on Chinese New Year), or a lion (which guard people's homes.) Traditionally baby boys in China wear hats and shoes decorated with tiger motif, so they will grow up strong.

This is a paper cut.

yellow submarine?

This will makes sense if you have seen the movie "Walk Hard". It's a silly movie that makes you laugh for no reason. I recommend.

old books

I picked up this book years ago from my high school library, when they were getting rid of old books. This one is a collection of short stories published in the 40s.

gradationnnn omgg

update update! hi world, i'm doing Howl's Moving Castle for my senior project. This painting doesn't look like it has anything to do with Howl or the Moving Castle. yes that's why i chose this scene. it's a one week assignment and i don't have time to design any characters and props, so might as well pick a scene were everything is made of illusions. so if anyone asks what this is about, i'll just say "no, it didn't really happen. it's only in your mind."

this scene is when Howl is fighting with the Witch of the Waste, with, like i said, illusions. so basically they are two clouds fighting in the sky, trying to fool each other with illusions they conjure up. even that boat is not real! so, am i real? is this blog real? are those gradation for realz?? it is a very dangerous world we live in my friends...
