9th RCC Animation Showcase 2014

The 9th RCC Animation Showcase and the first 'Juried'/'Annual' Animation Showcase was a huge success, because of my students' dedication and commitment to their animated films. Each one of my students spent an average of 10 weeks to complete the films I am about to share with you below.
First of all, approximately 40 films were selected out of 110 submissions juried by my colleagues from Cal Arts and various independent and commercial animation fields, Andres, Sunha, Jian, Tae, and Hlynur. And among those selected films, 11 films were selected to receive the AWARDS. So here is a link to the playlist of all 11 award winning films from this year. 

Meanwhile, here is the film that won the biggest honor of the showcase, BEST IN SHOW.

Also, there were many many amazing films that got in to the showcase but didn't get awards and there were many many amazing films that didn't even get to be included in the show. So here is a youtube playlist to celebrate and recognize the rest of the films made this academic year in my classroom.

Click here to view the rest of the films. (Please note more films are to be added as I receive more during the summer)

Meanwhile, here are a few examples you can watch on this post.

& Mollie Ong's The Weaping Willow below.

Finally, on behalf of the art department at RCC and as the RCC Animation Showcase Director, I am so thankful and overwhelmed by all the supports we have been getting from the faculty, students, staffs, the community, and my colleagues. I think that's the reason why the animation program at RCC Art Dept continues to grow. Here are a couple of pictures taken by my student, Yukiko Kuno, at the showcase.

New Year Update

2 months old Ian & 21 months old Noah

Happy New Year

Happy Holidays!
Even though I am mostly on Tumblr these days, I thought I should still post a new year's update here on the google blog. god blessed our family last year my second son, Ian was born. Since then things have been crazy busy and happy.  Another main thing that happened was I got featured on CartoonBrew as an artist of the day. Such an honor and luck. I hope anyone reading this post, would have the most awesome and wonderful 2014. The last two GIFs are what I made to celebrate the holidays. Since I can't paint at home these days due to the heavy baby work, I have been mainly using colored pencils and graphite for my work recently. Thank you for reading my post. Once again, happy holidays and happy new year!

Tumblr Madness

It took me a several YEARS to get 27 followers on this blog while it took me just over a night to get over 1,000 followers on Tumblr. I mean just over "one night." That is mainly because they featured one of my animation on their main page as a spotlight tumblr radar. In terms of how long I have been on tumblr, it's around one month. Still fairly new. I am getting tons of fan mails and messages that include a favor to feature other artists' works on my own blog because of a lot of trafficking in my blog. Something I have never imagined would happen and still I can't believe it's happening.

So, even though it's only 27 of you that may be reading this post, I thought I should still let you know I find it more effective and more productive to update tumblr than the google blog at the moment. So yeah follow me on Tumblr if you happen to be on tumblr ;-)  

As always, I appreciate all of you checking out my blog. Even though I have no plan to get rid of the google blog (this blog) I would like to be a bit more active on my tumblr art blog. So please come and support me if you have time~ Thanks!!
