Festival and site news

August 30, 2014News

I finally added some pieces to the portfolio section of my site. I added three new books to the illustration portion and updated the photos for my “Gannets” pop-up book which were too blurry. I also added a presentation to the Design section of my site. I would like to add more presentations to my … Read More

Lemur Carousel book completed!

July 30, 2014Animals, New art work

Just completed a new pop-up book, to replace my retired “Gannet” pop-up book. The subject is lemurs, specifically black and white ruffed lemurs, which I chose because they’re on display in the Central Park Zoo. I was struggling to find a story for this book. Granted, the last carousel book doesn’t have much of a … Read More

Grand Comics Festival this Saturday

June 4, 2014Exhibitions

I’ll be showing and selling my wares at the Grand Comics Festival this weekend! I’ll be premiering the second issue of my “Alien Encounters comic”, 3 years in the making…I really made a mistake when I decided to render the shit out of the drawings. It’s been so time-consuming to get just one panel inked … Read More

The Toronto report

June 4, 2014Exhibitions

I’ve been procrastinating on writing my “TCAF” report. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table (sharing a table with fellow 3-arm squidder Alexandra Beguez)! As I mentioned in my last post, preparing for this festival was kind of a drag since it was in another country. I had to renew my passport, get Canadian … Read More

Going to Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend!

May 7, 2014News

Yours truly is exhibiting at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF)this weekend, at table 220 with fellow “3-armed squid” member Alexandra Beguez. I hear my table is on the second floor, but apart from that it’s somewhere where I don’t where it is…I’ll figure it out when I get there. 😛 So yes, I’m taking … Read More

Ander’s Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter

April 27, 2014Book Review, Exhibitions

As I was walking home this past Friday, along Fifth Avenue, I actually noticed a sign about an exhibition of Anders Zorn’s work in a museum I never knew existed. I walk past it all the time, and I didn’t realize the building was a museum called “the National Academy“. Anywoo, made it a point … Read More

The Devonian

April 7, 2014New art work

I actually completed this book back in December but neglected to make a post about it…mostly because I dread taking pictures of my work. I’ve got two digital cameras and neither of them work. Also, every picture I take requires extensive photoshopping to clean up. Anywoo: the Devonian! It’s the third book in my prehistoric … Read More

Lesson learned: never update plugins

February 24, 2014News

I haven’t added a lot of stuff to this site for a while, so last month I finally decided to do some sitekeeping duties and updated the “woocommerce” plugin that powers my shop…i really regret doing that. The biggest problem was that the update itself was faulty: somebody didn’t use the correct syntax on their … Read More

On location sketches

January 19, 2014Animals, journaling, portraits, Sketches

I recently finished a sketchbook I usually use for drawing on location. So you’ll see here lots of drawings done at the zoo, and the MET + AMNH museums. Because the sketchbook is small, I usually flip it upside down when I want to draw on the bottom of the page…makes it easier on the … Read More

Degenerate Craft Fair this weekend

December 11, 2013News

I’ll be at the Degenerate Craft Fair this weekend selling my wares with fellow squiders (yeah! made up word!)Alexandra Beguez and Alden Viguilla. As I’m not doing Mocca next year, this is the only New York thing I got lined up in the foreseeable future. And I’ll be debuting my third prehistoric book “The Devonian” … Read More
