Giant Robot - the Year of the Dragon


I'm excited every time i get into a show, but I truly get shocked every time I see the flyers for two reasons. 1. Hey look, there's my name! 2. Look who I get to show with!

My dragon girl is the largest watercolor i've ever made! Go to the show and check it out if you're near LA! There will be plenty of amazing art. Wish I could be there!

If you go, take pictures and share them with me. ;)

One day i'll be everywhere

This past week my art has been featured four times!


1. "Prankster" made the front page of Hi-Fructose's website! Extremely flattered & grateful to have been the face of Giant Robot's Printed Matter show. Especially being on the same place as my heroes. Psst, I have a Hi-Fructose addiction!

2. "Sugar Haze" made it's way over to the other side of the globe on CURVY's round up about Eye Candy!

3. Kaylah from the Dainty Squid included "Is it really love in her eyes?" on her Friday Favorites! Her blog is so adorable: her quirky outfits, mushroom hunting, and vintage finds. I read it quite regularly.

4. Last but definitely not least, "Young Eyes" was featured by JL Schnabel on Blood Milk. She regularly posts art mysterious, macabre, muted, and monochromatic. So flattering that'd she'd post something so colorful. (I've kind of been silently haunting her blog for a long time!)

Her surreal jewelry is incredible! Took my breath away when I first saw it. Definitely worth your time to look.

Thank you! xx


Hunger, watercolor and graphite. 3.5x5 inches, 2012.

Feeling giddier than a school girl and smiling wider than a Chesire cat! Gladly fit in this tiny drawing measuring at 3.5x5 inches between my other projects. I've got work lined up for a while, and gears turning in my brain thinking about future projects.

The pre-order went pretty well! So thank you to everyone for the support! You can still place an order, i'll get as many prints created as I can. They should be in my hands in about a week!

Looking forward to the future: creating, blogging, traveling!

Is there something more you'd like to see here on this blog? More Booksmeller Sunday posts (book & smell reviews), art history round-ups, artist features, recipes? Speak up!

Miss Fortune

I was completely over the moon when i received an invitation from Giant Robot to participate in their "Year of the Dragon" show late this month! I feel very close to this theme because i'm of partial Chinese heritage!

Here's a sneak peek, just for you!

Miss Fortune sneak peek

I'm extremely pleased with the results. It's my largest watercolor to date! It's a whopping 12x16 inches. Usually when working on larger pieces, I oil paint. More experimentation needs to happen!

"Miss Fortune" is an homage to Chinese tradition as well as current asian street fashion. All of this is injected with the charm and personality of the dragon. Passionate & daring! It also happens to be my Chinese zodiac sign!

More details on her later, after the show opening later this month! Also if you haven't been to Giant Robot to see the current show, Printed Matter, go check it out! (Or at least snag one of my prints online, hint, hint!)

This is what happens when I start listening to Elvis and falling down a rockabilly hole. We'll see how ridiculous it gets from here.

Excited for the future.

Giant Robot - Printed Matter

Hey Guys if you're near LA you'd better be at this show!


I've got three prints being sold at Giant Robot's show: Printed Matter. It's super exciting because it's my first show with them and this show is to kick off their new space. They expanded the gallery area! Which means more shows, more art!

There's a lot of cool artists in this show (that I get to show alongside of!) Some cool peeps being: APAK, Ines Estrada, Michael Hsiung, David Choe, and Deth P. Sun!

So go and be amazed! Let your eyeballs be full of sparkles and rainbows.

Did I mention i've got THREE NEW PRINTS premiering there? It's cash and carry, so you can have it as soon as you pay. Super affordable on my end too!

The show ends on Jan 25th, but i bet all the prints disappear pretty quickly. If there are any left, i think they'll be putting a few online.
