Hullo guys,

Wow thank you for all the birthday wishes, I can finally legally drink anywhere in the world haha. I feel like April flew by without much photography updates. Reason behind that was I have been busy doing some side design work and trying to catch up on life since school robbed me of that. I managed to squeeze in a ton of things including photographing at a huge design event as an event photographer. It was one of my highlights of my year so far and really inspired me with amazing panels, insights and talks from major influential peeps in the industry. By the way, if you're not already reading SignalNoise.com, go do it now, cause guess who's photos made it on the blog?! HURHURHUR

The badges were beautiful ;___;

Panels and venue was packed the whole 3 days.

In addition to that, I went to NERO's concert, probably one of the most physically abusing concerts I've been to so far haha. I managed to stand at front-row-center for most of the concert. Had to elbow and grab onto the fence for dear life, I think I came out with several bruises I never realized I had until the morning after. Still, BEST EXPERIENCE EVER :D I wish I had more footage to show, but I was too caught up dancing and fighting for my spot, luls. YAY next week I'm heading to Rusko's show, going to wear elbow pads and a fanny-pack with a kazillion waterbottles attached :<

A few friends and I went to Niagara Falls for a weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday, funny thing was we never even got the chance to see the falls until the day we were going to leave, luls. Stuffed myself with food the whole weekend and burnt it all off at the arcade, screaming lungs out at haunted houses, and intense shopping.

Hey peeps,

So I finally got around to creating a facebook page for my photography, behind the scenes and life stuffs. I used to post all my new photo works on my personal facebook account before anywhere else on the web, so I decided why not make that accessible to more of you guys by creating a public page.
You can follow me on facebook here facebook.com/jianiluart
I'm also on twitter twitter.com/jaicca

Omg I've been playing LA Noir this past week and I'm hooked, I'm close to the end of the game and it's getting intense!! Ngggg just thinking about it I want to go play it now. Having classes over with for the semester feels good, I finally have some free time to get back into gaming (and photography of course :D). UNTIL NEXT TIME, CHOW.

New work, new website and other goodies coming soooooon!!

EDIT :iconkinopia: has a table partner now wootwoot!! But my friend :iconredcharcoal: is still looking for a partner who is willing to share a table with her. Please shoot her a message if you are interested or know someone who is. Thanks!!

Hey guys, I'm helping my good friend, :iconkinopia: out and trying to find a table partner for her for Anime North. She's been looking so forward to this years convention and has worked so hard producing prints year round for this event. If anyone is willing to share a table with her, please shoot her a MSG :)

She's asked me to leave this message to anyone who is interested!!

"I am in need of a table partner in order to sell at Anime North this year. I am willing to not just pay half but the FULL table price. I have a pvc pipe stand that I can bring if you do not have or rather not have to lug with your other merchandise. I have lots of snacks, extra paper, and games I can bring to pass time. I have a portable sticker/magnet machine as well as extra keychain straps you can use free of charge for your merchandise if you would like. I am very responsible and respectful of others people's belongings and space, so if you want to walk around I can watch your things no problem and will not have to worry about stolen items. I have eyes like a HAWK.

Aside from that I would really like the experience of having a table buddy and a new friend. That is the one thing I love about conventions. If you are a new artist I am willing to give advice and answer questions through email or dA. If you would like to get acquainted or print together in person, I am willing to do so as well. I am open to grabbing supplies from shops in the downtown core since I am just a 5 minute walk from many stores in case of an emergency before the con. I am not sure what else to say. If you are willing to give me a chance please shoot me a line!

Thank you so much and I hope to hear from someone soon."

Help a fellow arist out :)

Tagged - A few annoying facts about myself

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 16, 2011, 7:43 AM
Hey guys :)
To start off I just wanted to point your attention towards a contest my friends :iconcarpevivere: and Victoria have joined for redesigning the Deadmau5 head. I think their design deserves some love :)  If you have the time, please give their hard work some support by voting, available here www.talenthouse.com/creativein…


__________________________

TAGGED
I was tagged by :iconkinopia: and :iconredcharcoal:

RULES TO FOLLOW:
>> I shall post ten annoying facts about me.
>> I shall annoy ten random peoples in return by tagging them.
>> I shall pursue my annoying game of hide and tag by commenting on their pages to notify them they've been tricked in the worst way possible. Because everyone knows you die a painful death if you break a tag game.
>> I shan't tag the person who tricked me back, because it would be as pointless as Endless Eight.
You guys know what I'm talking about.

1. There are days where I've listened to one single song on repeat for the entire day. It annoys the people around me who have to put up with it.

2. I can't stand slow walkers in a crowd, it drives me insane even though I can be quite a slow walker myself.

3. I'm easily forgetful, it takes me ages to reply emails and notifications since I tend to read   them right away but have a horrible habit of putting it off to reply for later. Then I just end up forgetting about it.

4. I can sleep in till 3 in the afternoon :p

5. I find stress relief in shopping, then realize how broke I am when I've spent my hard earned money - which results in turning to shopping again; it's a vicious cycle.

6. I get bored really easily, out of all the console games I've started playing, I've probably only finished a tenth of them.

7. I'm a gullible person. People have taken great advantage of that :p

8. I don't think I've picked up and finished reading a novel since high school. Since I'm such a slow reader, I'd much rather read graphic novels or comics just since they're a quicker read.

9. I will need to sleep with the lights on for a few weeks after watching a horror movie.

10. I'm a hoarder, I have a hard time letting go of useless things.


I shall annoy:

The weekend passed by so ridiculously fast, I was able to meet and talk to a bunch of amazing inspiring artists!! I feel so honored to have been able to print trade with many of them. It's really kind of motivated me to work harder and update my equipment with the money I earned this weekend. Thanks to those who bought prints and bookmarks, you've supported a poor student in need haha. It's all going towards a canon 60D, which I am super super excited about :D I'm really glad some of you guys were able to stop by, and it's nice to have met many of you in person :D

I still have several prints left over as well as bookmarks and a couple sets of my postcard collection. I'll have them available on here for purchase for very reasonable prices within the next few days, keep your eyes glued :D

Well this is kind of awkward, I kind of just left on an unintentional hiatus. I had always planned on submitting every once in a while but even that seemed impossible from the crazy schedule I was going through. D.A. has changed a lot since I've left and it's kind of hard trying to adjust to all the changes. It's kind of scary how much I miss this community and being a part of it.

I'm finally picking the camera up again and starting to kick myself up to do some new photoshoots. Thanks so much to everyone who's stuck around and continued to support me despite me leaving, I'm sorry ;___; but I just want to let everyone know that I'm back =]

Oh goodness, how fast time flies, I realized the last time I updated my journal was BEFORE anime north ;__; I thought I'd do a quick update before my subscription ends!!
I've been wanting to renovate my room for YEARS now. Ever since I moved into it, I never got the chance to paint the walls. I detested the patterns on the wall and the way it lacked atmosphere and colour. So I finally got some free time this summer to work on it, it took about a week for me to get everything done, move things out, paint the walls, buy the furniture and decor. My dad argues that my painting is uneven and sloppy ;___; I'm still working on some things like getting paintings and shelves up on the walls. Oh goodness, I am so ashamed of how my room looked in the "before" pictures, please don't think of me as a slob!!

Additionally, I have a really dear friend, :iconshamziel:, who is participating in the Armada Singing Contest. She has a really beautiful voice and I would really appreciate it if you could support her by watching her entry and spreading the word!! Her entry can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlhxzM…

  • Eating: cookies my brother baked =D

So it's been months since I've updated my journal, but I'm FINALLY getting around to answering those questions you guys asked =] OKAY here we go!!

What do you plan on doing with your photographic career?/What are you majoring in?
Well I'm really doing photography as just a hobby. I just finished my first year in design, and although it was really stressful at times, I LOVE it :D I'm still unsure in which direction I want go with, maybe I'll merge photography with design work in the future? I guess we'll have to wait and see =]

What did you do to get where you are today?
Hmm it's really just a lot of going out and practicing. I really enjoy shooting outdoors, so every photoshoot helped me improve in working with natural light, directing models, camera angles, etc. I look at a lot of fashion magazines and make up tutorials to get me inspired to different looks and feels in photos.

I started off doing a lot of self portraits, eventually I got friends to model, then models around the area noticed my work and I guess it just expanded from there. Connections are really significant if you're into portrait photography. I'm still on the lookout of collaborating with stylists, make up artists and the like.

Where do you get the most inspiration for your art?
I like to look at fashion campaigns and magazines for interesting colour pallets. Otherwise, scenes from those really emotional dramas, hahaa they give me ideas for emotions and stories that I may want to tell through pictures.

How many years did you live in Germany? Und sprichst du deutsch?
I lived there for roughly 5 years, I had a lot of memorable childhood memories there. And for the second part of your question, I can still understand basic everyday conversations in german but have trouble piecing together sentences to actually speak it =(

Why do you ignore comments?

What's your favorite thing to eat when you need a pick-me-up?
haha nah I joke. I don't ignore comments, I read every comment I get and honestly, comments are my favourite part of this community. I really like reading the feedback and critiques you guys leave. Although I may not always be able to reply them, just know that I'm really grateful for you taking the time to write something =]

Hmm, as for what I'd have for a pick-me-up, it would definitely be coffee. It's saved me on numerous occasions =] I know it's not something you'd eat, but..yeah ;__;

If you were to give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
It would definitely be to not take things so seriously and try not to be so hard on myself.

What's your biggest/ultimate dream/goal?
I'm still not quite sure what I want to specifically do with my art. But I just want to be able to make an impact on others. Otherwise, my ultimate goal is to be happy =]

Why are you collecting random things? Ever think about using them in a collage?
I have no idea why I collect plastic bags and price tags. I've just kind of gotten into the habit of keeping them, I suppose a collage would be a really interesting idea =D

What if you had a little mini panda? Would you be scared to hold it?
Hmm, truthfully, I've read that pandas are very strong animals that have claws that could probably tear me apart ;___; So yes, I would probably be terrified to hold it. DARN, why do they have to be so deceivingly cute!!

BTW, I'm clearing out a ton of my stuff. So be on the lookout for a journal post sale in the future. I'm selling old magazines, lolita dresses, bags, etc. And of course prints and stuff =]

Additionally, I thought why not answer any questions you guys have for me about my work. I'll have something like an FAQ journal up next time :D It's been awhile since I've felt like I've communicated with you guys, so hopefully this'll change that.

Okay, here we go!! :D

1. I have some strange obsessions, I tend to collect odd things. Plastic/paper shopping bags and price tags from clothing. I think I can fill up an entire garbage bag with them..
2. I think I have at least 100 bottles of nail polish.. most never opened xD
3. Most of my childhood was spent in Berlin, Germany.
4. I have social anxiety disorder.. but I'm currently fighting really hard to overcome it =]
5. I'm ashamed to say that I went trick-or-treating at the age of 18 ;__;
6. I'm a terrible singer, and can't dance if my life counted on it.
7. I have a shopping addiction, I know it's terrible but it feels soooo good LOL
8. I fangirl squeal when I watch romance dramas.. xD
9. I'm kinda spontaneous, often times I go ahead and do things without thinking twice..
10. I'm terribly scared of handling any kind of animal, including fuzzy cute ones.. I don't even know why I got a hamster ;__; So I tend to stalk watch them from a distance xD

I tag anyone who wants to be tagged xD

Hey guys,
Sorry for being inactive for so long, there's been a lot of stuff going on at school that forced me to ban myself from dA. I've been doing some self portraits recently, I just haven't gotten around to post processing them or uploading them. 3 major photoshoots are coming up within the next couple of month, I'm so so excited about all of them, it's so great to finally get back to photography. I want to get as many photoshoots done during my 3 weeks break as I can fit in, which brings me to this. I was hoping I could get an assistant or two for 2 of my major photoshoots this winter. If you're interested in being a part of the photoshoot process, feel free to send me a note about it =] I basically just need someone to hold up reflectors, help me carry stuff and what-not.


I'll have lots of stuff up by next week, sorry for being away ;__; I miss this community so much, and I'm so grateful for all the encouraging and uplifting comments everyone left on my last journal. First year in university has just been an emotional roller coaster for me, but I'm glad you guys are on it with me =D I'll post up some photographs of the stuff I've been working on in my program, I'm really loving the program and the projects (...except typography xD).

So one more week left before I'm free, I promise to keep you guys posted on things. I'm starting a blog soon so maybe that'll get me to update more often xD
P.S. I'm on twitter, update there constantly =] twitter.com/jaicca
