And for my new fans (hello! so nice to meet you all!) :) who asked me what I want for Xmas?
Here is my Sofianime Amazon Wishlist! 

I really want the Tekken 7 Fatal Retribution game! Fans, preorder it for me and as a thank you I will draw and paint you any character you want, fantasy art, comic book art or videogame art, on an original aceo sketch card or a 4x6 inch size art.

In fact, get me anything from my wishlist and my offer stands! I will draw an original painting, aceo or  4x6 inches in size just for you, as a thank you! :)

Get me any product from Namco and I will be your best friend forever! ;)

Private message me here on blogger or on my facebook page! and I will be most happy to create some sweet awesome art for you! :) thank you!


 Yes, for those who asked, I am a huge fan of the Tekken series. I been a fanatic since Tekken 3. :)

After watching the tekken7 intro and the tekken 7 FR intro movie, one has to wonder how is Kazuya Mishima related to Akuma? That glowing eye! hmmm....
 How will the Mishima Saga end? Inquiring minds are anxious to know!

Right now I am enjoying some of my favorite Namco sound team techno music, this is the playlist I have on, on youtube. I been listening to it almost ten hours nonstop (I love my new wireless headphones!)  as I work on some big projects. Been so busy working on projects, I haven't had time to catch up on sleep. Ummm, what is sleep again?

Just bring me a huge pitcher of iced coffee... I am going to need it. SO much stuff to do! I'll take a huge tray of sushi and sashimi too! and cheesecake! :3 I love to nibble on yummy food while I paint and create art. :)

This is why I haven't had a chance to post in my blog for a while! I miss chatting with you, my awesome fans and friends! :) I been so busy! n_n;;

But don't worry! I do have new fantasy art, and also Sofianime Aceo XR art to show you very soon!
(I am inking and painting new art as we speak)

Tips on Starting a Brand New Art Collection


Hi everyone!

I had many new fans ask for tips about how to get started collect art!

From my point of view, as an artist and art collector, I have several places I like to go to, to look for
my favorite type of art.
I like collecting beautiful art, fantasy art, anime art, concept art sketches, and comic book related art, among
other subjects. I like searching online to find new pieces of art.

Remember fans, Google.com  is your friend. I love to type keywords about the type of art I like to collect,
and this is a great way to discover new artists and find new art that you can fall in love with.

There are also So many choices on Ebay.com ! They have been around for many, many years, and you can find thousands of new paintings listed there. Check it out, and check in often!

Etsy.com : also has a lot of art. From cute art to figurative art and more. Go browse and find many different
types of paintings and so much more there!

Artfire.com : They have art direct from the artists. A lot of cool choices too!

Go search for niche websites or message boards about the theme of art you like to collect. You can
discover new artists from just visiting the discussion boards in those websites.

Facebook.com fan pages.  After  you discover the name of new artists that you want to know more about, do a search for their names on Facebook, see what comes up.  

Or do a  search on Facebook.com with keywords of the type of art that you like to collect, and see what comes up. This is a fun way to discover new art that you can fall in love with!

If you find a new favorite artist, be sure to like their Facebook page, and don't be shy, go ahead and
contact them, ask any questions you like about their art, many artist love to chat with fans. Let the
artists know how much you like their art! You might make a new friend this way! And also have the
exciting opportunity to own an awesome piece of their art!

For more information and advice about how to get started collecting art, be sure to also check out
Invaluable's blog In Good Taste which features the latest information and trends in art and antiques from
auction houses all over the world.

Fans, I hope you liked the tips. Be sure to message me with your tips on how you like collect art.

I will catch up with you all very soon!

See You on the Other Side, Dad...

See you on the other side, dad...

It's been a long time since I posted.

I had to take some time off. It's been three months since dad passed away. I finally have the motivation
and time to post about it. He passed away from cancer in the liver. It happened very fast, after the
doctor's  diagnosis. The last six months I spent with him were quite stressful, just watching him getting
worse and worse. He was gone in less than three months. He passed away back in May 2016.

I still feel sad, there is so much we did not get to do together.
You are going to be terribly missed, dad.
I am sure you are happy next to God, and with mom and grandma on the other side.

Goodbye dad.
I will see you on the other when my time is up.

I wanted to say thank you to all my friends all over the world. Your emails, phone calls, messages, many
hugs and greeting cards, they are truly so appreciated.

And thank you Tamra Oviatt for the mp3s at sacredactivations.com they have been very healing!


I have been taking it easy for the last three months, slowly getting back into my projects. And taking it
one day at a time. Journaling and blogging a lot. As well as doodling in my sketchbooks.  I had days when I feel very sad, and days where I feel a bit ok. I am taking more time to relax now.

I am working on some new paintings and so much more. Will show previews soon.

See you all later!
