My favourite people from CGHUB! <3

The Little Mermaid by jeffsimpsonkh (Jeff Simpson)
veil by tobiee (Tobias Kwan)
Lookout by flaptraps (Richard Anderson)
Vampyr by EmmanuelMalin (Emmanuel Malin)
Ten of Swords by davepalumbo (David Palumbo)
Stem by noah-kh (Kuang Hong)
so close by matayosi
Chaperon by Alexandre Day
Sunny November by NikYeliseyev
Epilogue by TomScholes (Thomas Scholes)

Aren't these amazing? I love everyone sooooo much. If you browse through their galleries you can definitely see where the vibrancy of my work has been coming in from as of late.

(I'll also shamelessly admit that I'd received birthday drawings from jeffsimpsonkh, noah-kh and tobiee. A copy of The Art of Guild Wars 2 from Rich Anderson with a personalized sketch, and a print from David Palumbo during Comic Con. I know, I'm so incredibly lucky to be spoiled by my favourite artists. ;_;)

Booked my ticket for Toronto. Will be there from the 16th of this month till Jan 21st.

To be honest I'm a little bit excited and a little bit scared. I'll get to meet up with my best friend, possibly visit Montreal, I pretty much love all the Canadians I know so I love Canada already, but I'm so afraid that I'll just freeze to death on the streets one day. It's getting too chilly for me even in L.A. these days, I really wish I had better tolerance for cold. ;_;

Haha, I already had all of those images in my inspiration folder. Great choices. I REALLY love Matayosi's work. Hero status. Blows my mind every time.

Have fun in Toronto. Even if it does smell like feces in certain areas >.>. But yeah, people here are awesome. I hope too to meet you one day :). And yeah....the cold is gonna beat you like a piece of veal in an anti-peta cooking competition. ALTHOUGH! The city's buildings will keep you shielded from the harsh winds.

I was going through these with my eyes literally wide open and whispering either "wooah.." Pretty much how I react looking at most of your photographs :)

Thank you for this inspiration.

Nice inspirations, my fave has to be Matayosi!!

Weirdly enough, we haven't had much snow yet, although it is quite chilly. Don't worry, you won't freeze to death. Just bring your muttons, scarves, and hats! Since you mentioned have a low tolerance for cold, buy some of thos hot packs. (Those things where you shake and radiate heat.)

It's rather unfortunate that you are coming to Toronto at a time when it's so cold, but at least you get to see the stereotypical Canada! Are you going to hold a meet? It'd be awesome if you did. I'd probably feel like a fail photographer if I went though. Compared to you, I'm nothing. :P

Oh, and do get some Tim Hortons when you are here in Canada!

Oh wow, was definitely super excited to read that you're coming to Toronto - I live here too, & I absolutely adore you work! What'll you be doing here?

Rocking Doll Museum / Diabetic Lolita said...

Wow! Those are amazing pieces of artwork! I love them!

love your favorite artist ;) thanks for share !

Michelle said...

All of those are amazing images! I particularly love the last two. I have been a fan for over 3 years and I have hoped that you'd eventually come to Canada.

Will you be holding any fan meet-ups while you're in Toronto? I really hope that this will be the case! Please keep us updated.

Don't pass the chance to go to Montreal. It's crazier than Toronto but really exciting, but i guess, being a Montrealer, I'm biased.
I've just got your book for my niece as a christmas present. She's Chinese born (adopted) and will turn 16 this january, so, if you do something public in Montreal, let us know, we'll say Hi!

I second Charlotte's comment.

I'm in Toronto Jingna, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a meetup. It would make my holidays. (Just so happens I'm done my last exam on the 15th.) It was meant to be <3

I only just recently discovered the world of blogs, and I have to say you're quickly becoming one of my favorites. Great post and look forward to seeing more from you.
