Ultimate Art

So word got out that I like to dabble a bit in drawing here and there...meaning I outwardly advertised this blog and encouraged new Shanghai frisbee friends to check it out....and my friend Milan oh so kindly asked me to design the logo for the League jerseys. Quite the privilege. It was pretty exciting. I first designed a frog, since the Shnghai team is HuWa...a.k.a. frog (so clever, am I...'tis true).

aBut apparently that design was reserved for the full Shanghai team.....not friendly League. So I moved on to a girl jumping up for the disc, clearly skying any guy in the vicinity...hey, a girl can dream. It was liked, but not loved. Plus, I did the drawing based on memory of anatomy rather than on a picture or live model, so it looked a little forced...but still pretty cool, in my humble opinion.

Then I got a random photo from Jon, one of many frisbee photos, of a girl laying out nearly horizontal-style for the disc. Pretty badass. Scraping together a last-minute sketch with time and judgment as key pressures, I managed to produce what will now be on our jerseys. I'm pretty stoked. I'm spreading my art to the clothing and sporting industries.....sweet.

Embarking on new adventures....

And thus has begun a year long adventure into Asia, starting with Thailand, making my way with Jon into Cambodia, and then ultimately into our home for the upcoming months: China. So far, many buddhas, a dumbed-down version of the black plague, elephants, monkeys, bamboo rafting, crazy tour guides, cricket-eating, waterfall viewing, motorcycle riding, 7-Eleven frequenting, training, wandering, daydreaming, botching up the Thai language, and having a ridiculously good time have all been involved.
I can't promise I'll keep y'all posted in the most up-to-date way, but check back every now and again for new posts and new pictures. You should also check out a new blog that Jon and I have newly created: "Teaching in China" @ http://teachinginchina08.blogspot.com (there's a link in the "Friends & Fun" section of this blog). This new blog will most likely be more up-to-date, and will also have more comprehensive descriptions of both of our experiences. Check it out.
Lots of love!

Input, insight, interest, whatever

Hey friends and newcomers,

Below you'll find a bunch of my artwork that I've made over the last 10 years and I'm really excited to be sharing it with you all. I'm also interested in (and perhaps somewhat anxious about) what you think about it. However, I welcome it all: comments, questions, curiosities, reactions, what have you. So I would love to hear (...read...) what you think about it.

Moral of the story: post comments...multiple, even.

My deepest thanks,
Emma :)
