With a bit of rock music ...

Some sort of spring fever spreading in my sketchbook ...

Yay! Spring!

To celebrate the first warm days around here in Germany, I drew this monster with a popsicle! ;-)

Another late night drawing

I am a huge fan of the zombie genre. So obviously I got pretty excited when they turnes The walking dead into a tv-serie - with huge success I must say.
Pen and ink in my sketchbook and coloured in Photoshop.

New Facebook page for my art!! ^______^

I am going to cancel the Ice-Cream Monster Art Gallery account in Facebook.  No worry, I am creating a new Facebook account to replace it - Alina Chau FB page.  A page which will be more organized, and focus in my latest art posting.  If you are interested to continue follow my art on FB, please like the new FB page!

Hope you will enjoy these new changes.

Time traveling Ernest!

I did this for a project that I had been working on at the Tacoma History Museum. I did several murals and the signage. This one was an extra illustration that I threw in because I really liked working on the exhibit, which opens in May of 2014. Stay posted! :D

Junganew web-site is up!!

One of the most anticipated projects, I art direct last year is Junganew!!  They just launch the official web-site!!  Please check it out!! 

I am very excited about this project, because it's an interactive educational app with lots of interactive exercise, storytelling experience and cut-out style full animation.  I know ... I know ... you would ask, what's so special about all these!!  Every app out there have all these functions!!  That's what app is about!!  

BUT, here is the fun fact ...  all the artwork in Junganew are created traditionally watercolor on paper ... and YES!! You will get to see watercolor illustrated character with full lip-sync and cut out style animation!!  

Pickle - The Little Bird Who Doesn't Tweet - it's my first watercolor animation app.  The animation in that app is very limited, since I haven't quite figure out how far I can push the animation with watercolor on paper.  After Pickle, I worked on Junganew.  With the experience of Pickle, I now know the possibility of what I can do - almost EVERYTHING in Junganew is animatable with full inter-activities.  The design and planning process is challenging, but lots of fun!!  

I will slowly share some fun behind-the-scene stories about this project!!
