Reading Week

This is what I did for my paintin' class. So glad I finished it:)

Reading List in reading week

1. Kristina, King of Sweden 1638-1639 Diary (I know it's a kids book, but she was REAL so go and research her!)

3. The Amulet of Samarkand

What I reccomend YOU to READ

1. Men at Arms-Terry Pratchett-Corgi
2. A Handmaiden's Tale-Margaret Atwood-I dunno the publisher

Work-in Progress Pics

I'm posting this so people can give me suggestions and input for these pics.

With the first one (the girl with a white afro) I wanna know how to colour her hair to look like hair.

With the second one, the drawing is Rodolphe's. I am just trying to practice "creative"shading, so the light source comes from under her.

One night, my bf took me to an indie music concert. It was a really crappy concert but our night was special.Neeways, after the concert I came and greeted the Violinist. Boy, was she a bitch. Her concert was crappy and she had the nerve to act like a diva! So it's revenge time! I caricatured her.

Oh and the caricature of Vanessa Mae is there just because Vanessa Mae is soooo much cooler than that bitch violinist

Bio and a late short intro

I suppose I should do an intro and bio of myself. So

I'm Stephani Soejono, or the people at Sheridan knows me at Sheila Stephani. The explanation to that is long . See the thing is when I was born the government of Indonesia in Jakarta has this "amalgamation"policy for the Chinese Indonesians. (which is like a milder version of Holocaust--cept they didn't kill us) This made my parents had to change their names (cause my folks are both Chinese-Indonesian). As if that's not enough, they want to get rid of anything remotely resembling our heritage --which includes family surnames. So my name sorta get pingponged from Sheila Stephani Yap to Sheila Stephani Soejono to just Sheila Stephani.

Which always confuse people in Canada and make me feel insecure.

See, all my friends has surnames they can trace back to their ancestors, either in China, Vietnam, Ghana, England or German, or Ukranian. I sorta don't have that "heritage" behind me

I think I also owe people an explanation why I insist being called Stephani. Back home, every kid is called by their middle name instead of their first name. (at least in my area)

Well anyway I'm at Sheridan second year animation now. I'm loving it here. I love to read and draw...mostly people. I am trying to "break free" from drawing too much people. I need to draw more architecture drawings! I'm usually inspired by a lot of things. People around me, cultures, books, music, TV shows, films. I'm also an amateur soprano, and trying my best to learn Quebecois French.

I guess that's enough intro

Old Art

My fav. Indonesian cartoonist gave me a signed artwork. I am really happy:) So I coloured it, and it was old, back in July

Egyptian...maybe it's not

This was done when I was in the rage of my "Pyramids" art phase. I love the way that book is written. I just don't know what happened at the end. It went kinda...WEEEUNK!

My first art yay?

This is Dios. HE is a character from a book I'm currently reading. It's called Pyramids. It's written by Terry Pratchett



I now have my own Blogspot. Uh. Wow. It feels really weird.
