Until one is forced to believe that Art is Dead does one find resonance in the truth that Real Art Never Dies.

Shirley Valentine, at the Gateway Theatre, was my absolute favorite theatre piece this year. Lois Anderson did such an amazing monologue that it made me go to the library just to reread the script. I don't think I've ever been that drawn into a local performance since 7 Stories.

The Drowsy Chaperone, at the Vancouver Playhouse was another fun surprise to watch and the concept was brilliantly charming.

Cirque du Solei's Corteo was another impressive highlight. It was my very first time seeing a Cirque performance and I'm very glad I went!
Hope you enjoy my 2008 theatre doodles :)

Thanks VIDF for another annual 3 weeks of free life drawing! They turned out kinda coffee shop sketchy cuz I drew them in my sketchbook instead of the usual newsprint pad. I loved how I could just walk over, from the studio to the sessions, during my lunch hour this year :)

I don't know what the fad is with this sewing plush toy thing so one weekend in January I sewed some of the characters from the show I've been animating. They turned out pretty not bad and now they sit together at the studio.

I went to a play last week and I sat beside this old couple who must have (must of?) had an argument before they arrived. I couldn't figure out what the old lady was bickering about, but wow, was she uber bitter. She didn't take her jacket off the entire night and kept her purse clenched and on her lap the whole time too. I keep making up stories of what it could have been about. Here's a sample of her remarks, but I couldn't make sense of it.

Yumiko's Animation Demo Reel ~ Capilano College April 2007 on Vimeo.
They paved a highway right through my grandma's farm in Japan. There's also a new shinkansen line in the background.

This is supposedly a fire hydrant cover, which warns drivers not to park here.
