Interview on Orange Alert

I was interviewed by Jason Behrends of orangealert.net and am currently their artist of the week. The interview gives some insight into my work process and the thinking behind some of my more thematic pieces.

22 Zine feature

I'm featured on the cover of the 5th issue of 22 Zine, an independently-produced online/print magazine by Adam Beneke. Inside is a short interview and a few pages of my work. Thanks Adam!

You have the choice of purchasing a printed copy, downloading a pdf, or viewing it online:

Double the pleasure, double the fun

Here are two new pieces, both of which will be in shows this coming Saturday:



"Out-of-Body Experience"
Mixed media on paper, mounted on panel
8" x 10"

The theme of the show this piece is in is "voyage," so I wanted to illustrate a mental journey/mind trip. This piece looks much better in person, since I used silver ink for the standing figure... You can really see the shine in person. Anyway, it will be for sale at the "Voyage" group show at Liliya China Bistro, featuring Otis students, alumni, and teachers – including Cecil Kim, who owns the restaurant. Thanks for having us, Cecil!




"Deep"
Mixed media on paper, mounted on cradled board
12" x 12" x 2"

Deep space meets deep sea! Sexy. This piece will be part of the final The Kids Are Alright show, which takes place at LeBasse Projects. It's been an amazing tour, and I'm so glad I was a part of it. Big thanks to Beau of LeBasse Projects for setting it up and inviting me to be a part of it!

Hope you can make it to one or the other show...or both!
