Fanime Con 2015 Report

One month later, I'm finally writing a con report for Fanime 2015. The reason it took so long is because I was trying to compile visual media for the post. No substantial amount of media has been access yet, so I'll write one anyways and update when they finally crawl out of photographers' SIM cards.

3 Tips on How to Party Safely

Hello and welcome to summer vacation for most people! It's a time of traveling, sightseeing, and, of course, partying. Now, "partying/clubbing" and "safety", don't seem to go hand in hand. Especially considering how much media is put into the nasty sides of it- bar fights, sexual assault, etc. However, there IS a way to party... safely.

Resa Reacts - Hithchiker's "Eleven" MV

I'm not a fan of music video reaction videos because it's simply not offering much info, but I wanted to slap out something about Kpop after writing soooo many unpublished reviews (really, I have about 101 published posts here and 68 drafts in the background of Kpop MV reviews... probably never to be finished).
So here you go, my first reaction video! (And not planning on making more of these).


As I stated, in the video, here are my theories about WTF is going on in the MV (both SM's & Original version)

How To: Easy Homemade "Latte"-Style Coffee

What my best-thus-far homemade latte looked like.
A latte is officially defined as "steamed milk and espresso". However, I designed a method so you can make a latte-style coffee right in your own home with a regular coffee maker and a microwave! I will add much better pictures and a video soon.

Top 10 Things You Will Notice After Studying Abroad

So it's been a couple months (or a little over 2 years) since coming back from England. Even though it's essentially so far away now, my study abroad experience still lives with me. So here is my mini-list of the top 10 changes you'll consistantly notice after returning.

1. Reverse homesickness! This is a concept where you miss the friends and connections you made overseas and upon your return, you'll feel alienated by losing one network and being The New One once again.

Gimscape (Inkscape x Gimp) - Cpeed Paint!

New speed paint video up... right after a new cover!

This was actually an art request by Nanako who wanted Woohyun x Sungyeol (of Infinite). And what better way to couple a kpop pairing... with a software pairing? Anyways- this is my first time completed a project with Inkscape (outside of practice). Inkscape is fairly self explanatory if you've used other softwares, but it's so... lacking in enough features that I almost prefer Illustrator (I wish I could try Paint Tool Sai one day... still looking for a good Mac program to drawing lineart).

GIMP: How to Postcard, Bonus: Light & Color Theory

New Vlog! I'll admit- for the past year, I was in a terrible terrible artists block, so I'm glad to be finally back producing works again!

This was commissioned during Jpop Summit 2014 and in this video, I'm showing how I create most of these postcards and for some reason talk some color/light theory.
