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
I was really excited to work a newly formed monthly event called Little Tokyo Happy Hour this last week. I was able to round up some of my favorite artists to roll out with me and sell some of our work with the other vendors. Each of us loaded up, headed down to the heart
One of the cool things about social networking is that you never know what events you’ll be able to not just get invited to, but also participate in. A friend of a friend of a friend….etc… put out a post looking for vendors/artists to come out and work a monthly event called: It seems like
Along with our trip to Little Tokyo this weekend, we took a handful of band stickers that Matt has just ordered for his band Tora!Tora!Tora! One of the great things about cities like LA is you see people leaving their mark everywhere you go. Whether its tagging, or wheat pasting, or stickers, the signs are
After reflecting on last year’s projects, trials, and accomplishments, I’m looking forward to a new year with fresh beginnings and lots of opportunities. Please continue to visit my site and keep an eye out for what’s new and coming next!
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
