The time has come...

For me to finally post once again! Good morning! I have been really busy for a while-I was able to get a table at the first ever CTN Expo and it is this weekend! Hope to see you there. I have not had much sleep lately and look forward to trying to catch up when I get back from the expo. Brittney and I will be driving to Burbank in a few hours and hopefully there will be much fun and adventure to experience!
Here is my new print..the usual-show/circusy gals.

Have a great weekend everyone!

APE Update

Hi..I am quite the slacker with posting lately. All of a sudden I got so busy and haven't had time anything..especially APE artwork. But here are a couple things I am bringing with me.

My entire family of tiny framed flappers. There are more than that but didn't fit in the picture.

Wouldn't you like to have a greeting card with some elves doing the can-can?

my French clown a bit jazzed up in photoshop

A white peacock on the trapeze.

I am actually still running around like crazy trying to get everything together and printed. I am excited about tomorrow and if you have a chance, stop at the expo because there is going to be an incredible amount of talented artists selling fabulous things!

My gal pal Ikumi and I will be at table # 249 so please try to stop on by. Have a wonderful night!

Sunday, September 20, 2009


This month is going to be super busy and exciting because Ikumi and I got a table at our first convention ever! APE is only 4 weeks away and there is sooo much to do! I will try to do more updates closer to the date so stay tuned. :)

Girls Drawin Girls at Meltdown Comics...

If you are in the LA area this weekend please check out the GDG 'Girls of Summer' themed show at the Meltdown Comic Gallery. Since I joined the group just last month I wasn't able to participate in this show but there are so many awesome pieces of art from my fellow GDG members so please check it out! The closing reception is this Sunday the 30th so it is your last chance!

Meltdown Comics is located at:
7522 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA

A little painting I did tonight.

Have a fab weekend everyone! I'll be drawing and watching Dexter! :)

Koi painting and Comic-Con!

A tiny 2.5 x 3.5 watercolor and gouache painting. I am having a lot more fun with real paint lately than digital.

So this is the first week back from Comic-Con..and it surely was an experience to remember! I was overwhelmed with everything that was going on not to mention all the wonderful and talented artists that had booths and tables.
Here are just a few of the things we brought home..
I got to meet Shane Glines, one of my very favorite retro pinup artists and bought his book 2-Daily Spiral.

At the Fleet Street Scandal booth, Juan and I both picked up Kevin Dart's Yuki-tee.

J.Scott Campbells
super sexy Fairy Tale Fantasies Calendar

The 5th Oogley Boogely 'sketch' book by the wonderful Pascal Campion

I attended a wonderful Disney panel featuring Walt Stanchfield's-Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes. The speakers in the panel were Eric Goldberg, Don Hahn, Tom Sito,Rubén Procopio and Glen Keane. It was amazing!!!

I also become a member of Girls Drawin Girls which I am happy about and look forward to contributing some cute and sexy fun pin-up art to their blog!

San Diego was fun and I although I will miss the con (not to mention the wonderful beaches and Extraordinary Desserts!).. being back to the bay is great and I look forward to sharing new artwork. Have a wonderful weekend.

Update and small paintings

So, I really have been slacking on posting lately..I have been working on a couple small jobs and have been trying to work on personal stuff too but always seem to get stuck somewhere towards the end..or well, maybe the middle. :/
Next week I leave for my very first Comic-Con in San Diego and I am so excited! Maybe seeing all the awesomeness will get my creative juices flowing once again!

Kri's cousins were visiting from Toronto for a couple weeks and I hadn't seen them in ages! I did these two little watercolors for them as a goodbye gift.

Have a great Wednesday!

Starting a band...with love!

A wedding save-the-date I did recently for a totally awesome couple, Christy and Jim. They wanted to be on stage and look like they were 'starting a band' but dolled up in wedding attire. Even their dog Tinka got to make an appearance. It was fun to draw this especially since I was working with a couple that had such creative ideas!

Somewhat Syncronized

These little ladies are getting ready for a swim. I love vintage swimsuits-especially the flowered swim caps! Happy Monday everyone!

Talented ballerina friends

Lately ballet classes at Shawl-Anderson have been really awesome. I really enjoy taking dance classes with friends so I drew them in their dancey attire! :)

This is Mayka.
She is very pretty and funny and has cool dance gear too..lots of sparkly gymnastic stuff! (although I drew her in her more basic clothes) She is a great writer-check out her blog for some good laughs...seriously.

Britsketch is a super artist and she has very pretty and unique features! She also had wonderfully fluffy hair!

Spider Girl

This is for this week's Art Jumble topic.

Although I LOVE Spidy, I drew Spider girl instead. :)

A small drawing

I was going crazy with my other projects so I took a break to color this girl. Goodnight :)

Jeannie and some paint

Here is my Jeannie sitting her her bottle. this was supposed to be for art jumble but I missed the topic deadline...partly due to the fact that I tried to paint it and it didn't turn out like I wanted so I turned to something that didn't fail me-Flash!

I also got some Gouache a couple days ago to try out for the first time. It is a lot of fun but really challenging. Above is my first attempt at an Asian badass inspired by recent drawing sessions and such. Better luck next time with this lovely expensive paint. Happy Monday! :)

Tuesday, April 14, 2009


On Saturday Ikumi, Brit and I dressed up like Asian assassins and modeled for our own drawing session. I'm going to be starting a project this year and I needed to do some study sketches..hopefully more to come soon. :)

Silk Spectre II

I got stuck with this one so I just had her posed from the back.
Well..I finished my Watchmen females...on to something else besides black and yellow.

Original Silk Spectre

Since Art Jumble decided to have their 'WATCHMEN' topic for two weeks in a row I decided to do another one of the female superheros. I might do Silk Spectre II also but I haven't decided yet.

Silhouette from WATCHMEN

I was fortunate enough to see Watchmen with some friends at Pixar over the weekend. It was my first time really getting to know the story and although it was a bit dark for me I am very interested in reading the comic now. I really wish I saw more of this attractive character,Silhouette (who was actually a member of the Minutemen.)
I've also posted this to Illustration Friday as the topic is 'Intricate' and I feel that Silhouette's costume is pretty detailed with many intricate buttons.

Painting for Red Onion

An acrylic painting Juan and I did together for our friend Johnny Yee, Restaurant owner of the BEST EVER!...Original Red Onion in Pinole..which has the best food along with a ton of artwork hanging on the wall.
We started it during Chinese New Year but had some issues so it took a while longer.Usually during Chinese New Year, the 'funny man' feeds the lion a head of cabbage as a goodluck offering so we decided to paint him feeding him a big burger!
If you are ever around the Pinole area, please try this restaurant because it is sooo good!
Here it is framed and happy Friday everyone!
