App-addicted

So I got an iPhone for Christmas and having never had a REALLY cool phone before, I just wanted to say, this thing is addictive!!! I have downloaded something like 40 apps already and still counting. I do everything on it now. Facebook, Twitter, google, email, I mean they should put a warning on this thing.."caution- once you have used this phone, side effects may occur. Soar eyes, lack of verbal communication, cronic app addiction, slight stupid knowledge increase, hard of hearing when others are talking to you...well I think that it's also a good thing because I now can do just about anything, right in the palm of my hand. Well I just wanted to share my thoughts. Now all I need is a Bobby Chiu app so I can be inspired.

"Falling' - for ChuiSteam


Here is a digital painting I did for ChuiStream, the topic was falling!

Bartles Album Cover - Crappy Road

Here is an Album Cover I recently did for my girlfriend's family. They have a cover band of the Beatles called The Bartles and their new CD is titled 'Crappy Road'. My girlfriend took the photo for the front cover and did an awesome job at capturing the Abbey Road'esque feel. You can find her photography at RighteousPhotography.com

Here is a sketch I did as an exercise while watching Bobby Chiu's Live stream this week. I think I am getting better at expressing my creativity. I am trying to get be looser with my drawings and put more information down faster...

Bubba Shark - Chuistream sketch



This was a quick (45 min.) sketch I did while watching artist Bobby Chiu show CHUIStream on UStream.com. He challenges watchers to create a drawing while watching and he gives you a general topic and you have 1 hour to complete and upload it for voting.

I didn't win THIS time, but this was the first time I have pressured myself to complete a drawing in a time limit and I liked the rush. It helped push me to create, and that is what I love to do.

I hope you like it, I may put some more time into finishing it, but for now this is the final product.
