Adventures in Hyrule
Today is a lazy sunday. Spent this morning going through some sketches and after 10 of them I wanted to stop drawing for the day. Like yesterday’s post it’s been tough trying to just through a day. Maybe I need a vacation or maybe I just need to get out of my own body. In any case the only escape was to enter the land of hyrule from a different perspective…mainly with Finn and BMO buddies.

I finally got around to finishing Irch from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It’s been a tough few weeks and having any motivation to actually do art work has been taxing. But today I somehow managed to motivate myself and work on this piece. Hopefully, I got more energy to do the rest of the Koroks. 
Hope your week has been going great. Enjoi! High-res

Some of you may remember this little guy from the Wind Waker. Yes, the one that you had to save in the forest haven. I decided to make a little take on my happy weird things series and have him in a similar pose to Hapy. 
I want to also dedicate this piece to a friend of mine named Lina. Much like the characters in each of the temple Lina has helped me through much of my internal struggles and always has a positive outlook. This ones for you boo ;)
Here’s a little quote from Makar:Link… This sacred song that you’ve conducted has awakened me… I know myself now! I am the sage of the Wind Temple… It is my fate to return the power to repel evil to your Master Sword… And to ease the regrets of my ancestors. Oh, Link, please! You must take me with you to the Wind Temple.” High-res

あさだよ!!!どうようびです!!!
I wanted to give you guys a preview of the WIP that im currently working on. You may have seen this piece in a few other photos and it’s been with me for almost 3 years now since I made it. Very dear to my heart and Im glad I finally get to digitize it. It’ll be one of many projects for me. 
The title of this piece is called “This is unexpected” I basically didn’t expect any of these characters to come out while I was creating it. I challenged myself to come up with interesting shapes and work with them on the fly while painting on the canvas. Needless to say the canvas came out great and will be moving to its new owner soon.

POW WOW HAWAII 2013

Earlier last year I had the opportunity to come across a kickstarter for this art festival called Pow wow hawaii. Here’s a basic run down below.

POW! WOW! Hawaii is considered by some to be the island’s largest and most expansive gathering of cultural minds. The event which has taken over the once sleepy area of Kaka’ako in Honolulu has welcomed approximately 100 artists to the area in a widespread beautification and education on the world of street art and the process of creativity. Originally founded several years back in Hong Kong, POW! WOW! was brought to Hawaii in hopes of offering a more hands-on approach to exploring art and engaging the community. This year’s artists include Faith47, DAL, Dabs Myla, Askew, Mark Bode, 123KLAN, Rone, Meggs, Yoskay Yamamoto, SLICK, Woes Martin, Roid, Shark Toof, Jeff Soto, Hannah Stouffer, Apex, Poesia and many more. Aside from a local and global roster of artists each plying their trade diligently around the area, several educational initiatives and events have also been put in place including live panel discussions, free art and music schools for the youth, musical events as well as the culmination of the eight day event through a massive block party.

After I had heard of this I traveled back home in December to spend some time with family and capture some of these great murals. While I didn’t have much to document everything as much as I wanted to I felt inspired and a great sense of accomplishment. As someone who grew up in hawaii, family is strongly emphasized. Being part of something that is greater than yourself is something that I’ve always strived for. I’ve never been one to stay put or just wait for something to happen…I’ve always gone out and did something to make it happen. Even though Pow wow is something that I’d one day want to be apart of…even small things…it’d still be an honor to be part of the pow wow family. 

Episode - Choose Your Story

Posted by dishawaiian808

Today marks another achievement for my company as we launch our latest app called Episode. 

Welcome to Episode: your home for interactive, visual stories, where as the player YOU choose what path your character takes!”

It is basically an app where you can follow many different stories of various character in the game. Whether it be Rich Witches or Rock n Roll Revolution there’s a story for everyone to choose. 

I worked on this project on/off throughout development and had the chance to see many different things and incorporate new ideas from older games into this. I have to say it was really fun working on it during production mainly because it had more freedom to choose the kind of outfits we’d get to make for the characters. Some of them were just sooo hilarious!!

But enough about me just talking go and check out the app for yourself! There are a few posts in the tech world already talking about it! Enjoy!
