Shows Shows Shows!

Super excited to have two shows in the works! The first one, VHS Nightmares, I am helping curate as a part of White Matter! As of last week, I also joined Splendor Device, and all female art collective. Both are opportunities I am pleased to be a part of. Attend these events if you can! I can guarantee they will be more than worth your time.

Cal State Fullerton Spring Show 2012

So in my final semester at Cal State University Fullerton, I was one of the students put in charge of setting up the annual student Spring show. It was my first time being in charge of a show that wasn't my own, so I learned a lot about the curatorial process, which was a great experience. Posted above are the pictures of my two pieces which were selected to be part of the show! I LOVE the placing they chose for the first one; right at the entrance of the show!

"I Don't Make That Face" Finished!

Finished product! I'm quite pleased with it.

Live Painting!

Last night, I painted live at the Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim with my artist friend Jennifer King! So much fun! Not to mention I was super productive, I guess having an audience encourages me to work really hard, I got so much painting done. I'll have to post the piece when I get a chance, I'm pretty proud of it especially when you consider that it was all done in just 4 hours. Now if only I could have this kind of motivation every day, I'd have a whole collection done in like a month!

Sketching ideas

Working on some sketches for things I'd like to print, and this is one of my favorites. The theme for the print show I'm going to be in is death, so I'm combining this with my usual focus on human communication and bonds. What can I say? I'm a pretty pessimistic person lately.

"I will always be angry, I will always be persistent, I will always seek to drag you down to my level."

The Trials of Printmaking

So yesterday I started printing for the first time! Super excited! My friend Jason Le helped me etch my first zinc plate, so here it is. Haven't tried too much actual printing with it yet, just did one test print. I'm just going to keep practicing until it turns out just right. I'm really enjoying the process thus far, so I'm looking forward to learning how to do more.

"I Don't Make That Face!" in the works

A painting of a friend I am currently working on. It's about 75% done, so I still have quite a bit to do, but most of the complicated things are done. Should be able to finish this by the end of the week if everything works out. I am super excited because this week I am also going to start learning how to make prints! I'll be sure to post my newest art exploration as soon as I can!

The Cynic

Since I haven't updated in a while, I thought I'd post one of my finished pieces from this semester. It's a portrait of my younger brother, hope you guys like it!
