Memorization
12x12, oil and acrylic on canvas


Learning a language from scratch is like being a child looking in picture books at monkeys and elephants. Especially with learning nouns in Chinese, you start a whole new way of matching actual images with the character representation of the image. It's hardcore memorization all over again.

I agree. I really like this painting. You saved it from I-pod hell and made it awesome. And when i hung out with ariel the other day I saw the one you're currently working on and it looks as awesome as this one. I can't wait to see it, brotha'.
