This weekend I had the pleasure of going to a colleague//friend’s exhibit at the Japanese American Museum in (Little Tokyo), Los Angeles. The show is titled “Supernatural” and its description states: “Traditions are an integral part of every community. Some of these come from superstitions that our ancestors carried with them…Supernatural features the work of
After recently designing a logo for the blog Punching On Paper for writer Ryan Gattis, I was asked to be a part of his upcoming show (in conjuction with ISM) at Meltdown Comics in LA to celebrate the new year. It is generally believed that modern Chinese martial arts derived from two separate mountains: Shaolin
This week has found me in a strange funk, and while I’ve been trying my best to wrap my head around my feelings and pushing hard to get myself out of this mini depression, I told myself the best way to recover is through creativity. Last night I determined that today I would make lemonade
A big thanks to everyone who came out to the show Friday night. It was a ton of fun hanging out with friends/artists and singing happy birthday to the gallery. There was a really nice variety of prints, in all different sizes, styles, and papers. I felt really happy with my pieces, and got some
Just finished my two pieces for the Hibbleton All-Star Show this friday June 4th 7-11. I wasn’t able to invest the time i had hoped into my second piece, and created just a little something so I could submit 2 prints. I hope people like them! For more info on the show’s opening and the
SHUFFLE show made its debut at Hibbleton Friday February 12th, 2019. With more than 300 people in attendance, the show was a definite success. A wide variety of visitors came out to enjoy the original artworks and live entertainment. Megan Jade stole the show for a short while with her beautiful vocal stylings and musical
I‘ve taken it upon myself in the last year to try and get exposure on my own. My outlet is curating gallery exhibitions and have been fairly successful thus far. After my last smaller show, “Meet My Moji”, in mid March of ’09 I’m moving on to a more established location… With high hopes for

Over the last year and a half I’ve had the amazing privilege of being the Art Manager for the indie printing company Black Hill Press. Their unique approach to storytelling through the use of the novella format is paired with one artist per 3 books, creating series of stories by Artist. Each series starts with
I had the awesome pleasure of attending a conference in Carey, North Carolina where I was able to work the rest of the LOFT visual team doing prep and set up. Part of the activities ranged from setting up podiums, dressing mannequins, putting up decals, to prepping decor. For our first night we were planning
Last year I was referred by a friend to do a logo for a hotel chain in California (read more here). It was awesome working with them and fortunately they enjoyed it enough to ask me to do more work since. They decided to expand the merchandise in their gift shop and asked me to
Last year my brother commissioned some art works to give to a few of his friends for Christmas. One of them was his good friend Alex, who just happens to be the tour account manager for Depeche Mode. This in and of itself, was a pretty cool gig that just happened to turn into something
While my husband and I were in Korea we happened upon a Free Market in Hongdae. The Free Market is similiar to swap meets here except that its all artisan, hand crafted goods. I was excited to go and see what kinds of new exciting artworks and crafts are being made by local Koreans. I
I know I’ve been very bad about updating my blog but I have a good excuse! I’ve been out discovering the world. For my honeymoon Matt and I traveled to Japan and Korea and had an amazing time. There are so many spectacular places to visit, foods to try, things to do, and art to
There are times in every professional’s life when they begin to feel a little stale in their work atmosphere. I am definitely no exception. Recently there have been less and less moments where I have felt super inspired or a part of a really exciting project. However, a week or so ago I was handed
So last year I tried to keep myself busy with #asketchaday, but…as many of you know, wasn’t too successful. Its hard to sneak in some artwork in between designing, working, living, breathing…you know…etc. This year I decided to try something that I could possibly be more successful at. I found someone’s older site that did
(fan art by Enkayeff) My husband laughs at me for being so invested in some of the games I play on my ipad, but its actually his fault, since he bought it for me in the first place. Every once in awhile I find a game, one of those build a village, aquarium, or zoo,
This last week I’ve had a couple encounters into other artist’s works where I couldn’t help but notice the striking resemblances. The age old saying that there is nothing new is in a way true, but also untrue in that things are constantly being reinterpreted or altered. The illustration was a hair study done with
