Phew! 2011 is OVAH, and 2012 is HERE!

According to the WordPress Summary Report I got yesterday:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

(Click the image above for the full statistics!)

That’s a lot of love. Thank you all for making 2011 the most successful year yet for my blog!

Since Christmas, I have been reflecting on the past year, and how much has changed in my life since last January

  1. In January, I rang in the New Year with my friends in New Jersey, and spent the rest of the month battling icy sidewalks, broken apartment heaters, and searching for my snow-buried car.
  2. In February, I continued to deal with crazy NYC Metro incidents, and Starbucks came out with their new “Trenta”-sized coffee.
  3. In March, I talked dirty to the Starbucks baristas, got bitten by a Vampider, and packed my bags to move back to the MD/DC area to work as an architect!
  4. In April, I shot my very first firearm, and shared trade secrets, including how to avoid bedtime bugs and how to make their very own photo comics~
  5. In May, I enjoyed my mother’s amazing cooking, tried to bring sexy back, almost accidentally killed my brother, and went fishing for river monsters.
  6. In June, I practiced my golf swing at the range, and tried to convince a stranger that I didn’t fart in an elevator.
  7. In July, my family went to Orlando’s Islands of Aventure, Faith gave a shot at making her own comics, and I pondered deeply on what my Prius would look like if it was a Transformer
  8. In August, I broke down and finally got myself a new computer, and experienced one of the most disgusting things in my life, and it was all my dad’s fault.
  9. In September, I went fossil hunting with my dad, helped my grandfather get Sex on the Beach, and had a stranger’s butt too close for comfort to my face.
  10. In October, I got myself some new glasses, and learned how to deal with my Dad’s creeping and my Mom’s backseat Facebook driving.
  11. In November, I began my very first Mini-Series comics (in which my own boss cameo’d), celebrated 11/11/11 at 11:11 am, and started my own Non-Profit Organization for Haiti by selling my comics.
  12. Finally, in December, I got to try my hand out again as a photographer, gingerbread architect, and singer/dancer.

What in the world could 2012 possibly bring? 2011 had a new job, new lifestyle, new locale, new friends, and a new look for me. I lost 15 lbs, started a non-profit that raised over $1000 in a month’s time, worked for a job that I absolutely love, and am the happiest I have been in a long time. I have no idea, but I have a really good feeling that God is still going to outdo 2011~

My own goals for 2012 include becoming fully licensed as an architect by the end of 2012, taking the New Mercy Project to the next level, and Lord willing (as corny as it may sound), finding love.

And no worries, lovely readers. I’ll be sure to take you all on this journey with me. Here’s to 2012~

새해 복 많이 받으세요!

And by darling, I mean you, lovely reader~

Merry Christmas! I hope and pray that you all had a fantastic Christmas today!

My weekend was filled with good times, a fun and entertaining musical production at Bridgeway Community Church, and later on, a wonderful get-together with my Bridgeway, New Hope, and immediate family.

What can I say? I have a very big family.

Lots of dancing, singing, eating, laughing, worshipping, and other goods stuffs went down, and I’ll eventually get to documenting it all~

I also made a little something special for Mini-Grace for Christmas, and tomorrow, I’ll show you what her reaction is! Look forward to it!

For more pictures of my weekend, click HERE.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Looks like my week-long vacation is going to need a short extension.

Sorry! With end-of-year work deadlines and a Christmas musical coming up , the finale to the mini-series will have to wait until Thursday.

(PS: you are ALL invited to the musical! Come and see me try to dance! Emphasis on “try!” Hit the link above for directions and times~)

Until then, enjoy the smooth sounds of some of my very talented friends from Bridgeway and New Hope.

Love your faces!

Happy Belated Halloween, lovely readers!

Aside from handing out candy to the way-too-old-to-be-trick-o-treating kids in the neighborhood, my holiday has been pretty quiet on the entertainment front~

Fortunately, I got to at least have a bit of fun at work, dressing up for the in-office costume competition.

Remember my fish, Wade? He got to help me out~

Between my friend Chris (the too-cool-for-school Dinosaur) and myself, we shared the “Best Costume” award. It was good times~

On a more serious note, I have had the privilege to work with a group of talented people over the past week and a half in order to submit a video entry for the What’s Your Story Video Challenge, which is being held by the White House Initiative for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

– – – – – – – – – – –

Please check out the video and share it with people you know. And if you can spare a few dollars, please visit our website:

www.newmercyproject.org

All your donations are tax-deductable, and at the end of every month, we will send 100% of the donations straight to Grace International’s feeding program. When I go to visit Haiti again, I will be sure to document what your donations and efforts are doing on behalf of these kids!

AHH-HAAH!

Whenever I work on my comics, I usually feel a tingly sensation on the back of my neck. And usually, it means that someone (a.k.a. Dad)  is watching me and trying to get a sneak peak.

But when I am really busy, or engrossed in what I’m working on, sometimes I don’t pay attention to my instincts, and that’s where Mini-Grace comes in.

Scary…

I need to start setting up mirrors.

For fossils, that is.

Dad and I went off to West Virginia (as we are members of the Maryland Geological Society…NERD ALERT!) to go hunting for Trilobites.

The weather was great, and the pickings were good. Follow me!

For those of you guys that are wondering what the “MIOCENE” means on the license plate, Miocene is the geological epoch of the Neogene Period that extends from about 23 to 5 million years ago. And those people thought it was cool enough to have as their personalized plate.

. . .

Here I thought my “GWHANG” plates were hard core, but I was dead wrong.

To see another ridiculous license plate as well as more fossil hunting nerdiness, click HERE for photos of another trip that my Dad and I went to over a year ago.

Sorry for no comics this week, and for an overall lame month of blogging.

It’s been another 65+ hour week at my firm, and something tells me next week is going to be the same. I’ll maybe just not sleep one night to FINALLY get that photo comic out.

I’m gonna go and put massive amounts of anti-itch cream on my neck now. Those dang West Virginian mosquitoes ate me ALIVE!

Time for a well-deserved break from videos.

If you do happen to enjoy the videos, though, the final vacation vid will be up by Sunday.

Most people don’t get a chance to see the process behind my comics, so I thought I’d give you guys a sneak peek .

It’s a bit different from how I do my photo comics, though.

This one was from the You’d Like A What?” Post. 

Believe it or not, I can actually read the text in the sketch on the left.

When I come up with an idea or something happens to me, I sketch it out in my little notebook, and draw it out fresh on an 8.5 x 11 piece of white paper, scan it in, color it with Photoshop, and post it up for you all to see.

(As seen above, I also do some refinement and cutting/adding of panels)

This one was from the Awww Skeets Skeets Skeets”Post. 

Even though I usually don’t draw the entire body/context out in the sketches, the facial expressions of Mini-Grace are really the focus of my illustrations.

(^_^)

More comics will be on their way after the last video, so get excited!

. . .

I wonder how many times I’ve written “get excited” on my blog posts.

Too many, I’m sure. But still…get excited.

Are you sick of seeing my face, yet?

Here’s another video! Enjoy!

Only one more to go, and the comics come back. Hang in there!

I know a lot of people that read my blog prefer comics over watching videos…

But I hope you aren’t too bored with my little mini-project~

Here’s Day 2, Part 1. This is mainly for all you Potterphiles out there~ In the video, there’s a super secret link that takes you to an unlisted video, where you can ride along with me to during the 5 minute long, interactive Harry Potter castle ride!

Enjoy~

My special project has finally begun!

To be honest, it may not seem like a project to other people, but as I have never video edited before, it took me much longer than expected and became quite the pet project for me.

Anyways, here’s Day 1 of my family’s time in Orlando~ I hope you enjoy and look forward to the other days to come!
