Art Box

It’s Cold! That is the phrase that seems to be said by me more than 10 a day this week. Puts me in a mood of “Screw this I’m not getting out of bed”. Then I get the call that buzzes my phone and the email that rings my computer and I have to get up.

Let’s talk Art!

 “What mediums do you use?”  This is another question I get from time to time.

The short answer is Everything I can. I am sure there are those artists that are just set on using paint and those just in pencil. I’m not set in one way of doing things. If it works and gets the job done I’ll use it.

Here is my workbox!! This thing goes with me to every convention and as you can see its filled with a number of things. For a while I was against getting one of these to trek around but Nicole convinced me otherwise. I’m glade she did.

Lets do a quick inventory of what I have in here.

Bic Pens: I love using these pens for drawing. Bic should give me a sponsorship for using them so much. You Hear Me Bic?!!!

Sharpie Pens: Don’t know an artist that doesn’t just have one of these in his toolbox. These are useful drawing tool and good to have around when you are signing your art.

Kneaded Rubber Eraser: I end up having a few of these that end up in different shapes. It is really good to have for your pencil work.

Small electric Eraser: Sometimes you lay down a line that just to stubborn to come up. This tool is good to tighten up your messy pencils.

White Out Pens: I’ll use a few different kinds like Uni, Elmers, and Sharpie. Love drawing with these as well as using them for quick fill inns and highlights.

Fat Tip Markers: These things mean business so keep in a well-ventilated area. Good for throwing down fat black lines and fill inns. I love having different kinds. One of my favorites is large red color Krink.  Pilot and Sharpie’s are also kept.

Liquitex Acylic Paint: I keep a various amount of small tubes. I get all my live art shows done with these.

Sanford Col-Erase Pencils: I love working with these pencils. Having various colors of reds blues and green. I use these to lay down my line work when I do use a pencil.

Prismacolor Pens: These are great markers to use. Great tones of colors to choose from and always kept in my box.

Copic Markers: I have just few of these. I don’t find I use these as many other artist do. However they are great pens and have a lot of tones to choose from. Have to buy some wide tipped ones soon.

0.5 Lead Pencil: When I need to make a sharp line I have a favorite one that is a pencil and pen in one made by Mitsubishi. I found it over at Kinokuniya bookstore.

Art Pallet: I keep a small plastic one that has a lid so that I can mix a lot of colors and close it up and not waste my paint when I’m done.

Small bottles of water: I keep two small oz sized bottles of water to clean brushes and mix my paint.

Pentel Color Brush: These brushes are awesome. I was at a show talking to another artist when I saw this style of brush and had to go out and buy some.

Brushes: I’ll keep various sizes and kinds of brushes in my box. I even have a few in here I bought at Ikea. Sponge brushes are fun to work with as well.

So everything from Bic pens to Acrylic paints and various markers and brushes.  I even keep spray can tops in here for those moments I feel I’m in a can mood. Hats off to you guys that can draw with just cans. That is something I don’t have down as of right now. Maybe I can change that.

I hope this helps those that did have questions. If you still have some feel free to ask.

Power In Numbers

Chemix here with a couple announcements:

-Emonic will be showcasing some new work at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA along with a ton of other great artists at their anual Power in Numbers show. The opening reception is on DEC 12th from 7:00pm - 10:00pm and will run till December 28th. If you've been wanting a chance to own an original Emonic or perhaps just spruce up your original art collection this is a great opportunity as the running theme of the show is pieces priced at a max $100! Here's a few previews for you till then:

- Next order of business: If you've been having a hard time following Emonic news that's mostly because we haven't been keeping up our end of the bargain. Doing shows for most the of the year makes it hard to post often, but we're aiming to fix that starting now. Expect more up-to-date posts with lots of announcements, shows, and news this coming year. In addition to keeping better care of the blog, you can now also follow (and tell your friends to follow) Emonic news on:

- Lastly, if you have any requests for social media outlets that you think would be great for Emonic to post on, have pictures or content related to Emonic or his art, or have any questions involving his services, shoot me an email at

That's it for now. Stay tuned to the blog (or your network of choice) for future news!

It is funny to think that the impact of a blog will help see insight to anything at all about the person you are reading about, but to do that there needs to be weights of real truth given. In my case it seem to be trickles of drops here and there. Frankly there is part of me that is just not in the mood to do it. On other days I feel different of course.

I find it interesting to hear people’s points of views on my work that I think is crap. It is also interesting to find those that feel they need to tell you what your work is and that their word should be the last and finale above all others. He he Suckers!!

The question is asked from time to time.” How do you come up with your ideas?” So that being a question I feel I could jump on I’ll try and give an explanation perhaps you might mirror or that you know you have no relation with.

When trying to come up with something it's not always easy and on other occasions it feels as though the well is endless and I can’t find a stopping point to find sleep. Often it I find myself going through my catalog of music to obtain a feeling or certain point of view. Music happens to be my strongest catalyst. I run through my Ipod, computer,cd collection, and online to find something to open that third eye. I want to get in that zone were my mind is not thinking in the common manner. To the point were my thoughts start to get textured.

If I find that is not working, which on some occasions is doesn’t I’ll watch a movie or go skateboard. Quit often you hear other artists self-medicating themselves with items ranging from caffeine to other exotic combinations. That is something I can’t do. Unfortunately I can’t have large amounts of caffeine and alcohol is only taken in small doses on special occasions. Anything else is out of the question. However I do find many hours of no sleep creates this open mind effect, which I enjoy up until the point I know I’m hurting my body depriving it of rest.

My subject ideas tend to jump from the cute to the brooding to the down right evil. It sometimes depends the mood I’m in other than the job I’m working on. I quite often find myself trying to balance the inner kid that wants to be more and mixing it with some type of musical aspect. Other times I’ll concentrate just on the figure and continue to add lines till the image starts to move down a road I feel comfortable with.

Masks seem to be a common theme in my pieces along with a few other items. I like the Idea of sometimes not knowing whether my characters could be bad or good. Just like life it’s not always how the person appears but how he or she acts. It’s also nice to keep a mystery about something even though you can see it in plain sight.

This is what's UP!!

It’s 5:02am going over all the art I’ve got to get done. Last week was APE Con up in SF. A little late but Thanks to all those that came by and showed your support. As you can tell I don’t make this update thing at All a habit. I might back track bit on posting old work up here and there from shows previous.

So this week what’s going down? Well if you live in the San Jose area and happen to be in Japan town hit up Roy’s Station for a good cup of coffee or treat. I’ve done an exclusive print for them. More info on Roy’s and directions here

While at APE I bought one of the best sketchbooks I think I might have bought in awhile. The book is itself a piece of art. All hand bound and layered with some nice rage paper. I’ll post up the maker’s info a little later.

You ever buy some really good paper look at it when you get home and say “What the hell am I going to put on this now?” It’s so expensive you don’t want screw it up. I get that way with expensive papers and canvases. It’s always a hurdle to jump in my mind. Once I get past that I just don’t care and keep drawing. That being said I’ll be filling the damn thing up and keep posting pics here.

Now for a little sleep.

More soon…
