Happy Birthday Dad!

My dad turned 50 this week! Happy Birthday Dad!! I made him a little birthday card. =) I wanted to play with patterns but it turned out more graphic than I wanted. I'll just have to try again on the next one. =)

Puppies for 2009!

In May my dogs had 8 adorable puppies which meant I ended up with LOTS of puppy pictures! We kept one puppy, Phoebe. (she's in the one pictured) For Christmas last year my friend made me a really cute calendar with pictures of our group of friends so it inspired me to make one with all the puppy pictures I took. I added some doggy doodles to go with each month. I also got to play with Adobe Illustrator.. haven't touched that program in ages. Here are some images for my calendar... I'll post more when I'm done!

Back to Oils!

It's been so long since I've touched oils but boy does it feel really good! I started taking Jeremy Lipking's painting workshop after I saw Shelly's paintings on her blog. The workshop has been great, especially since I get to watch the artist at work and see a lot of Jeremy's paintings in person =) Each painting is two sessions around three hours each. Six hours is not enough time! =) Our last painting will be 9 hours.. yay!

Totoro Forest Project!

Greetings Strangers!! I've been a terrible blogger. So sorry! Thank you all for your wonderful comments and encouraging messages to post more hehe =) So here I am again, this time with something amazing to share! A few months ago a friend invited me to participate in a once in a lifetime opportunity known as the "Totoro Forest Project!" It is a fundraising event to help preserve the forest that inspired Director Hayao Miyzaki when creating the movie Totoro. Over 200 hundred original pieces have generously donated by artists from all over the world their artwork. An auction will be held September 6 at Pixar Animation Studios where all the proceeds will be going to the Totoro National Forest Fund!! I am so honored to participate along side so many artists that I truly admire. Please check out the website to see all the beautiful work and to help support this wonderful cause!!

Wow!! First I must say.. Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and leaving me such nice comments! April was a busy month for me and I come back and I am greeted with such amazing artists from all over the world. Thank you!! =)

It's been a whole month since my last post but I have lots of updates.. starting off with HAPPY Mother's Day!

I wanted to make my mom a mother's day card inspired by our new puppies at home!! Last Sunday my dog Happy gave birth to 8 adorable puppies. We've been busy making sure they're well fed and well rested on poop free towels. =)

My mom thought it would be nice for me to make cards for family friends for Mother's Day. So I decided to reuse my "breakfast" image making it into a card with a follow up image on the inside in an attempt to incorporate Mother's Day. =) hm..make breakfast for mom? hehe

Last month I was offered to go to Japan with my cousin. That was an offer I couldn't turn down! It was so much fun! We made it in time just to see the last bit of the cherry blossoms and the best part of the trip was I got to see TOTORO! =D I got a chance to visit the Ghibli Museum. A definite must see for anyone who visits Japan.

The Talking Stick

Sunday night my friend and I went to a really cute coffee shop in Santa Monica called The Talking Stick to listen to a new upcoming artist Ed Rhee. I found out about him through my friend and found his music on myspace last year. To me he sounds like a mix of.. John Mayer, Jamie Cullum and Ben Folds? =) It was just him on his keyboard and his drummer friend. The music was great! I could definitely see how passionate he is about his music. I was really inspired. =)

Ooooo SNOW!

( A doodle while I was on my 13 hour train ride to from New York to Toronto )

I've been traveling for the past month.... starting off in Colorado... then New York .. and now currently in Toronto. Everywhere I've been there is SNOW!! I love it! It feels so surreal to me. Everytime I see a really big pile of snow I just want to jump in. Tomorrow I'm going to make snow angels! =)

Sending Love from NYC =)

Happy Heart Day Everyone!!

Sketch - Part 01

Hm.. it's almost there...

As a kid I used to always match my hands and feet with my dad's to see how big his were compared to mine. It was a way to see myself grow. A goal. Now my hands are bigger than my dad's (my feet are catching up)... but there is much more growing to do. =)
