bidding now open

So I recently took part in a gallery show for charity. The auction is now open! This original painting of Batman could be yours! Bid now!


This is a charity auction for alumni of San Jose State University called the Jules Jammal Superhero Auction. Check out the rest of the work. If this awesome Batman painting by yours truly doesn't suit your fancy, maybe something else will! It's all going toward a good cause. 


You could also purchase a printed book that features all the artwork from the gallery.


A gallery show for all the work will be held on Saturday, September 6th. 

We will have a live auction of five select pieces on September 6th from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at the San Jose State University Student Union Ballroom.

One Washington Square
San Jose CA 95112

Hope to see you there. :)

Japan Expo 2014

Hey there! I exhibited at Japan Expo this past weekend. It was very fun; there were a lot of intriguing cultural Japanese activities for attendees to partake in as well as some of the usual convention things like the videogame and screening rooms. Overall, the event was very relaxed and I really appreciated the staff members and the event being so accommodating for both artists and exhibitors. Also, thank you to everyone who came out to see me. Even though I always bring my camera to conventions, I ALWAYS forget to take photos. Here are some that I remembered to take.



The highlight of my weekend was being able to dress up with my boyfriend in rockabilly inspired Mickey and Minnie outfits. I got special custom-print tattoo paper just for these outfits and designed these matching tattoos myself. I really wanted to make a whole sleeve of tattoos for both of us, but I started the project a little too late and was only able to make a few designs. Hopefully we can wear these outfits again in an area with cooler scenery. 






Many thanks to my boyfriend's friend who took these photos for us. I did the editing, but let's be real; there would be nothing to edit if someone didn't take these pictures for us. They're amazing.


PS: This is one of those rare times that I didn't have to make any of the clothing. Everything was storebought, except for those temp tattoos!

Deco Disney: Anna and Elsa

It's been a while since I last posted, but I have some goodies to show you! Here are the two latest princesses to the Deco Disney series.



I really enjoyed working on these two. I didn't do much to Elsa's silhouette because her gown was already so gown-y, but I gave her some Deco style details.

Deco Disney: Rapunzel

The last Deco Disney princess for now: Rapunzel.



It was difficult to get her face right. I'm still not 100% happy with it, but the show must go on. I couldn't stand it, so I went back in and fixed the face. LOADS happier with this face. These will be put on hold for a bit while I get ready for the convention.

Deco Disney: Belle

Another Deco Disney Princess: Belle.


Had a harder time coming up with a border design for this one. And the dress turned out a little more Nouveau rather than Deco. But Belle seems more like a Nouveau kind of gal to me anyway. :)

exhibiting at BigWow!

Hey, everyone. I thought I'd post this before I forget. I'll be exhibiting at BigWow this year, coming up on May 17th-18th. Come and say "hi"! I'll be at booth 1301K.



And here's a little art update. I sketched these mermaids a while back and stylishly colored them. It will be available as a print and a totebag at the upcoming con. :)

Deco Disney: Cinderella

Deco Disney's next princess, Cinderella.


I was also really unhappy with the faces for all the princesses before this one, so I went back and redid them. Now when I look at them, I don't feel like, "Ew, that face (especially Aurora)." Here's a comparison image and then individual images of all the updated versions. :)
