Tattooine

I was just looking at some of my older blog posts – I know I haven’t been updating, for some reason neither blogspot nor wordpress loads from home (we are really contemplating changing our internet service provider since that isn’t the only problem we are having at the moment) – Anyway I came across this one about pixel illustrations of the star wars characters and it reminded this video so here you go:

As a bonus (and for an apology for being absent for a long while, here is a great illustration from Ulises Farinas, also featuring Tattooine. (click on the image for the hi-res version)

Hiatus Over.

So, I have neglected my blog for too long, I think. The problem is, I took 5 courses last term and was psychologically in a tough spot so I hardly had any time, but now I promise I will update much more often. I love the new theme of my blog, and I have a banner under construction :D

More updates to come!

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 35,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 63 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 189 posts. There were 89 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 192mb. That’s about 2 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was February 23rd with 315 views. The most popular post that day was Magnum Gold ?!.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, alphainventions.com, twitter.com, en.wordpress.com, and ictenchan.wordpress.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for smirnoff, smirnoff north, yoshitaka amano, soul eater, and soul eater moon.

Project Proposal for VA 401-402

So here is the more detailed version of my project proposal that I have posted on my drupal blog created for VA 401-402 (which is my senior year project studio course). I will try update my wordpress blog about the project too, since I don’t really like posting on drupal yet. Here is the link for the more detailed proposal (which is still incomplete at the moment)

Beauty and the Beast backgrounds

Remember my old post about the blog, Animation Backgrounds? Well, I really loved the posts about one of my favorite Disney Classics, Beauty and the Beast which was the first movie I ever seen in the theatre, and I still love the song “Beauty and the Beast” which was sung by Mrs. Potts.

Here are the backgrounds from the blog, click to full-view!

Imaginism Studios

I love the characters from Imaginism Studios, which my friend Pınar told me about. (Check Pınar’s blog about asian dramas, by the way – the blog is in Turkish.)

“Imaginism Studios is made up of independent artists specializing in publishing, television, and movie pre-production. We produce some of the most fun and upbeat designs, concepts, and illustrations around.”
