Getting image ready for screenprint!

Okay, I have been having fun with this drawing all day long
having a movie 'interview with the vampire' as a background.
The movie is old but so perfect for a sticky n boiling day like today. :)
Anyway, I am very excited to colour this image digitally and
probably getting it screen printed for some tote bags and t-shirts!

Zines by Michelle Chrzanowski

Wow!! I just got a mailer from talented artist Michelle Chrzanowski,
and it totally made my day. (We are supposed to trade our zines!!)
There were three new awesome zines and those littile brilliant cut-out characters,
which are really cute and the zines are so funny and whimsical.
Here is the website www.flickr.com/gingerpocket
Thank you Michelle! They are fantastic!

"Desert Island" window installation!

I have been working on 3D... ish work for the window installation
for Desert Island.(www.desertislandbrooklyn.com)
It's really fun to play with paper cut-out faces and hang them to see how they work together.
It still needs a lot of work, and hopefully I can get it done by Saturday
so that I can install them this Sunday. It's so exciting! :)

"Good Luck!"

It's been so crazy since graduation at SVA.
I knew that it would be crazy, but it is so much more frustrating than I thought it would be.
Well, but at the same time I am wondering why I feel so frustrated and stressful.
Anyway, images above are for the show "Bad Luck Club"
And I wish you Good Luck! :)

Working on a new book "Magic Vase"

It looked a lot like the magic vase in the story my grandmother
used to tell me when I was a little girl
and it was always my favorite story.

Working on a new book "Magic Vase"

It was a magical coincidence that I was unconsciously looking at the
little Chinese looking vase at the Metropolitan Museum.

Star Wars Characters!-01

One of my classmates Philip has been working on some
Star Wars characters drawn from his memories the other day in the class.
And I found them so great that I wanted to join his awesome fun project, as well.
So we will end up having ten main characters from each of us and
make a fun zine with them by this weekend!
Since we have very different style from one another,
it will be very fun zine!
Here is his website! His work is really fantastic!
