After over a decade of working on the University of California, Irvine Student Outreach and Retention (SOAR) Center proposal, it has finally come true as of fall of 2011. I came back to visit my old colleagues and students to find our mascot Peter the Anteater soaring all around campus in his nifty paper airplane (100% recycled of course).
You’re looking good Peter. Keep up the good work.
Which UC Irvine center has the most awesome piece of artwork on their wall of all?
The UC Irvine Cross-Cultural Center! That’s who!
This past year I’ve had the pleasure to work on a public art project for the Cross-Cultural Center (CCC). I’m the luckiest person in the world! Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t an easy project to plan, it went through quite a few revisions but it has finally come together. I hope future, present and uhm.. seasoned Anteaters will be proud!
There will be an *unveiling* (because it’s currently hidden.. oh mysterious o_o) Week 0 of the Fall Quarter on Thursday, September 22, 2011.

This couldn’t have been done without Steph Li and Yaron Hakim. You two are beasts. Amazing, creative, ingenious beasts. Lots of blood sweat and tears went into this 18 foot tall by 12 foot wide paneled piece of deliciousness. Nomnomnom.
My Dream Team is Boss
The night before our in-progress mural session, I sent out a last call for my Dream Team ( Josh Huang, Kristy Li, Chris Ruiz, Jessica Enriquez, Daisy Herrera, Stef Sung, Jaimie Wan, Anthony Pham and many more) to come work their magic. The magic worked and I’m blown away.
