Personal Quote: I'm doing this to get back at my future self.
I spent 2 hours yesterday rationing out toys, money, and candy between large and small plastic eggs. Stuffed about a dozen eggs before I realized I put too much value in them and had to crack them open to remove some things and place them somewhere else. Would kids even care about prize distribution consistency in an Easter Egg Hunt?

1.) Large eggs have better prizes in them, and should henceforth be hidden far better than their small counterparts.
2.) Large eggs contain either money or a toy, and candy, but not all 3 at the same time.
3.) Eggs should be placed in safe areas and not the neighbor's cactus collection, rose bushes, or the "spider hole."
4.) Once the hunt is over, inspect the grounds to get leftover eggs for "processing" purposes. (cuz the sweetest types of prizes are the ones that are unclaimed)
5.) Make sure the kids/egg ratio matches up with the eggs everyone else brings. Ain't nothin' sadder than a kid with no eggs after an Easter Egg Hunt... except an Easter Egg Hunt with nobody in it. This should've been Rule #1.

To ensure that reading this journal wasn't a total waste, come check out this artist:…

It's not a plug for He Qi, it's just that the best place to view a lot of this person's artwork was the shop. :P What caught my attention was that the cubist style reminded me alot of Windwaker's intro sequence and that the primary, hyper saturated color choices that were used gives this irisdescent, neon appearance I haven't seen anywhere else. It's these color and design choices I'm hopin' to steal someday, so please don't tell anyone, it's a secret to everybody. :o

By figuring out what it is you like about something, the easier it is to attempt coordinating it into your style.

np! I adored the range of expressions in the menagerie of creatures in your gallery, Save-The-D, from unhinged to genuine joy, blissful ignorance to a more focused gaze, the way facial features are rearranged in relation to each other (such as making the eyes lower than the nose) and the playful way they're proportioned helps to accentuate the feeling they're trying to convey, whether it be "dawww" or "uhhhhh...ew".

Thanks for the watch!

np! The realistic perspective combined with the cel-shade rendering for the vehicles is very appealing, and I love that the cartoon characters that drive them plays with the proportions of the car in relation to the human figure. It makes the vehicles appear cute despite how detailed they are.

np, libelle! I love the chalky pastel approach that you take in the digital illustrations and how spirals are incorporated into the work. The subdued colors and the calm facial expression of the figures in each piece adds to the serenity and dream-like qualities.
