Before Sunset and The Hottest State

Here's a scene from Before Sunset, one of my favorite films and highly underrated. Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke cowrote the film with director Richard Linklater.

It's interesting to see Ethan's growth of a filmmaker with his new film The Hottest State. I find his writing (in this and Before Sunset) to be emotional and personal. It's introspection one does not see often in films (at least not done well or interestingly). I can't help but to imagine him going deep into his life and extracting material for his writings. His new film is worth watching.

Yes, I know it's summer, but I just recently inked and colored my buddy Mike Wieringo's Spring piece. One of the purpose of art is to evoke emotion and this drawing makes me feel serene. It's my most favorite of Mike's.

The Force is Strong with Me

I met the wonderful Frank Oz recently and he signed the original art of my CIV print. Check out his funny new film "Death at a Funeral." There is a hilarious scene in it where a character is helping an old guy in a wheelchair use the toliet. I was laughing so hard, tears almost came out of my eyes.

Speaking of my CIV print, If you wanted my limited edition Star Wars print and couldn't attend Star Wars Celebration IV, it is available now at for a limited time. Go here for more info.

Star Wars Celebration IV

Here are some photos I took at Star Wars Celebration IV.

The Three Stormtroopers.

Amy Allen and some Star Wars geek

Cameron Tiede Vader helmet.

Shag Vader helmet.

My friends Robbin and Miles. I was glad to find out that other than myself, Miles is also scared of Darth Vader and Stormtroppers. So I'm in good company.

This guy liked my Leia drawing so much he risked the wrath of Lucasfilm lawyers and put it on a T-shirt.

Attack of the Show's Olivia Munn was there in a Slave Leia costume.




Apparently I had nothing better to do than to take photos of Olivia.

The black Stormtropper (who the other Stormtroppers don't like talking about).

Stormtroppers hate Gun Fu.
