Đôi khi tôi nghĩ tuyết rơi chỉ cho mình tôi…tôi biết đó là ý nghĩ rất trẽ con. Nhưng đôi khi đó là điều tốt.

Art vs. Design

Between finding my half written artist statement and reading my fiances’ blog entry about ‘art vs. craft’, I am doing some “soul-searching” -for the lack of a better word- for my artistic side. What is art? What is design? What’s the difference? What makes an artist an artist and a designer a designer? Some can’t tell the difference. Only those of whom are in the particular trade … Continue reading Art vs. Design

Resume Blunders no one should make…

We’ve all made them: spelling mistakes, grammar errors, silly tidbits on our resumes. They stay there until one employer is kind enough to tell us, “Don’t do that!

A New Inspiration

I’m a big Manga (japanese comic) fan. I’m also a big comic fan-American, French, Chinese, Vietnamese, or whatever. Even bigger though, I’m a fan of the unique minority. If something is different, far from the norm, un-mainstream, one would say, I’m all for it. This might not be too un-mainstream, because I’m sure it will blow up pretty soon, but this is something different. I love … Continue reading A New Inspiration

Ok, Explanation time

For those of you who visited this page a few times and wonder why are all my post in some alien language that you don’t understand (unless you’re vietnamese and recognized that it’s vietnamese). Well, it’s because (duh!) I’m Vietnamese. I’m trying to brush up on my Vietnamese. It’s pretty bad. I want to write for a Vietnamese publication, maybe something like Lang Van or … Continue reading Ok, Explanation time
