Yum Yum Toys Series

Toys from YumYum, with a heroes and villians theme. I found them charming. Hope you like them too. Here is their behance profile.




So, I’ve fell in love with these box critters, boximals since I saw the featured comic on FML. Brought to you by Jeffrey Jang, a freelancer graphic designer and illustrator living in Coquitlam, British Columbia. I’d say these are lovely character designs, I especially love the cats and the turtles. Enjoy!


Have you seen UP by Pixar a few months back? I love the plot, all of the characters (even the villian-guy and the villian-dog). If you have, I’m sure you’ll love this catchy remix by Pogo. If you haven’t watched UP yet, I suggest you buy/rent the DVD and watch it!

The Art of Tim Burton

I really do want “The Art of Tim Burton” (and the deluxe edition which has his signature, too) but I guess I will resume dreaming of it, because I haven’t got money :D

The deluxe edition’s description:

“For the first time ever a comprehensive look at the personal and project artwork of Tim Burton.

Hardcover with cloth slipcase.

Hand signed inside cover.

Includes numbered and individually signed lithograph – ready for framing, not folded.

Over 1000 illustrations and 430 pages plus foldouts.”

And the description of the book is:

“The Art of Tim Burton is the definitive compilation of forty years of Tim Burton’s artistry, including film concepts and hundreds of illustrations from his personal archives, edited under the creative guidance of Burton himself. This comprehensive 434 page book is grouped into thirteen chapters that examine common themes in Burton’s work, from his fascination with clowns to his passion for misunderstood monsters, to his delight in the oddities of people. Many of Burton’s friends and collaborators offer their thoughts, insights and anecdotes about Tim Burton’s style and artistic approach to life.

Artwork from the following films and projects are included in this book: Alice in Wonderland (2010), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride (both 2005), Big Fish (2003), Planet of the Apes (2001), Sleepy Hollow, (1999), Mars Attacks! (1996), Ed Wood (1994), The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Batman Returns (1992), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Family Dog (1987), Batman (1989), Beetlejuice (1988), Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985), Frankenweenie (1984), Vincent (1982), and Hansel & Gretel (1982). The book also contains additional drawings from his illustrated book of poetry The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories (1997), and from The World of Stainboy web shorts (2000).

Territorial Self Portrait

Here’s my photography homework, territorial self portrait. My intention was making a circle or hexagon with my head in the center of it, and my arms protruding from everywhere in different actions but it didn’t quite turn out that way because;

1. I didn’t have enough subject matter

2. I couldn’t set my tripod high enough so I had to get help from mom – who is much shorter than me and she had to use a ladder. Seriously.

3. Even though I checked the light several times, checked the angle at every shot and instructed mom how to take the picture, she didn’t quite do it as I wanted it to be.. I can’t blame her though.

So, anyway, my favorite shot is the one with my dog, Miki. Here is the whole thing and the one with Miki:


Last Day Dream

Here’s a short film named “Last Day Dream” directed by Chris Milk. The story is quite touching, and might cause you to shed a tear.
