Fortune Tellers

A little over a year ago I saw the Cirque du Soleil show, Kurios, that just about blew my face off. 
Just got back from Vegas last week and while I was there saw Mystere - was awesome!
I love the whole atmosphere.
Long story short, I love the Cirque shows, the costumes and sets and performers and music are incredibly inspiring.

Mt. Diablo State Park

Hiked up Mount Diablo last weekend. Was so, so SO hot. But the views from the top were worth it.

Some Experimentation

Hi, how you been?
I've been sneaking in some different styles of drawing/painting in between work. I think i'm just trying to find something that I'm really comfortable with. 
It's been a drizzly last couple of weeks, non-stop rain, non-stop being indoors. It makes me so antsy,  I can't stop fidgeting, I've even got that bouncy leg thing going on (and I'm usually the one getting agitated by bouncy legs).
Anyways, I hope all you guys's weekend was grand.
Ciao for now!





And....I was going through an external hard drive when I found these!
 I think this was all the end of 2014? I store a bunch of art away in folders every time I do a cleanup of my desktop, and then I forget they exist, then, months/years later, I'm looking for some file and I come across all this old art.

2 Posts in One Month?!

Hi! So here's the situation: I love board games. It's kinda a thing that's gotten a bit out of hand this past year. I think I've amassed about 50 board games since. It all started with Pandemic, as soon as I opened the box I knew I'd be picking up another one. We got Terra Mystica next, and the game, the little wooden pieces, the board, the colourful art it was incredible! It probably didn't help that at the time, when we were living in Toronto, we were about 2 blocks from the board game store. 

Lately I've started thinking more and more about the meeples (little wooden characters) in the games and how they could be spruced up, when I came upon this guy: http://cultofgame.blogspot.com/p/pimp.html and was instantly inspired. This guy is amazing. And I thought to myself, I gotta do this too! So I went out, bought a block of Sculpey, drew up sketches of the characters I wanted for my game and attempted to sculpt. 
Fast forward a couple of weeks, I'm still struggling and the Sculpey is all gross from dust and hair and lint that's stuck in it. So I decided to take a break from sculpting, and paint the sketches of characters I had, hence the paintings of squat little miniature people lately.

End of story.


P.S: If you think you might be interested in some thinky board games I would check out Board Game Geek: https://boardgamegeek.com/ for lists and ratings.
If you want a recommendation: Our favourites have been Keyflower and Terra Mystica (the latter being a real brain burner). Or for something lighter and faster Istanbul.

P.P.S: If you're in Toronto, check out 401 Games, or the online distributor Board Game Bliss http://www.boardgamebliss.com/ the owner, Bosco, is really nice. 

Ok, that's it for now, talk to you later!

President's Day Weekend

Hi! I turned 24 last week, and this weekend was 3 days long AND it was 20+ Celsius down here in California. It's good times. 
Haven't posted in a while. Work, family and friends, sunning, you know. But, here's some stuff I've been doing in spare time.




See you guys later!
