KVCC East Gallery

I constitute about 20% of the gallery MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! over at KVCC they have a gallery that the Dean of the "Center for New Media" which is like the art department of KVCC, jurors. Both of the pieces I submitted made it so that is super cool. Also they print them off, so I didn't even have to pay for the prints.

To more golden times...

I believe it was Darren who posted this link a while ago, and it has made me happy ever since. So on the first day above 60 degrees here in Michigan, I shall post it again. I hope it will bring you the smile it still brings me.

A little place

I made an etsy shop a while back, I didn't really try to get into etsy or anything, but I think I am going to give it a shot.

Here it is.
TenBu's Etsy Shop

I just have 1 item up for sale, my monochromatic "Antler Girl" piece. If anyone who looks at this blog would like any of the pieces I have made in the past, comment on this post and say which one, and I will get on it, and post it.

Life on Mars

A most excellent show, which I highly recommend. Yes, that is Harvey Keitel in the picture, he is on the show, seriously like you need any other reason to watch.

A little background, it's about a cop who in 2008 gets hit by a car, and goes into a coma. He wakes up in 1973, has an apartment, and has recently transferred under Harvey Keitel. The show is a mix of catching bad guys, trying to explain how things are done in 2008 versus 1973, and figuring out if he can make it back to 2008. One of the cooler things about the show, beside amazing 1970's cop action. I mean like in "So I married an Axe Murdered," when Mike Myer's friend is asking his boss to be more like a T.V. cop, this show is chock full of that. Beating up bad guys, borderline torture for information, sweet action beat cops that would put Sean Connery to shame in "The Untouchables."

This show has me hooked, I love watching it, the costumes are amazing too, there a lot of little details that you notice that make the show a little more "real." Like the cigarette packages, the coffee cups, the rotary telephones, the payphones they use in order to get back to headquarters.

Also in true form, this show is based off an award winning British show of the same name. Just goes to prove the British are amazing. (Top Gear. Single best bit of televison known to man)

It's on after "Lost," so just hang out after your mind is blown, and check it out, you will not regret it.


This is a link to all the artwork in the 2009 Society of Illustrators Student show
Click Me!

Holy crap ringling school is tearing it up with TWICE as many accepted entries than Academy of Art, and 22 more winners than Art Center! I thought that ringling was just a circus, but apparently they are amazing. If you search far and wide you will find hidden in there BYU-Idaho and you can see Josh's and I's work.

Something that is also noteworthy is the art that was chosen for the catalog, was a girl from Kendall School, which is up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a place that I have mocked on many an occasion, I feel now like I maybe will be put in my place.

There really is some just amazing work in this show, I am just glad to be put in the same room with some of these guys. I will say this though, SAM WEBER is a judge, which is awesome if I can meet that guy, I will get to check off one of the old life goals. It's even cool to think he is going to look at one of my pieces, btw too he is a super nice guy, I have talked to him a couple of time through emails.
