While packing and going through my stuff, I dug up my old journal from grade two class. Always good for a laugh. I remember we had to write in it everyday. I think most of the time our teacher had a question up on the chalkboard for us to answer. This entry made me reflect tho. I have always enjoyed drawing, although I did have my dry spells where I don't remember drawing much. I remember in grade four I was constantly drawing Ninja Turtles. They were awesome. Leonardo and Donatello were my favs. I liked Michaelangelo too, he was funny. I had a phase where I drew Garfield too.
Anyways, I found it neat that I have this entry from grade two, stating that I will be an illustrator when I grow up. And here I am, 21 years later, going into fine arts to study illustration.
this might be my last blog post from edmonton, we'll see. This time next week, I will be on my way to Vancouver!!
in other news, I am stoked about the new Astro Boy movie. I hope they don't ruin it.

Collage I did a few weeks ago about how I feel about going back to school. The unknown is both scary and very very exciting. Hope and doubt collide very easily.
Words are by Seven Devil Fix. I apologize if I got them wrong, there's no lyrics sheet on that CD. But nonetheless, one of my fav songs from that album.
A few notes about the images:
wing symbolizes the angel spoken about in the song
tree - growth
compass - direction
rosary - faith
maze background - direction
I don't always explain directly what things mean cuz I think in effective art it should be self explanatory. But sometimes people are curious and ask me.

oh and on a side note - I took down my Taniguchi Design website, so if you are looking at archived pages and images are missing, that's why.
