Inspired by those Youtube videos of mighty lions hugging their human friends.

In regards to obtaining art supplies in New Jersey: Michaels can only do you so much, the local art supply store caters to middle school and high school art classes and Utrecht is an inconvenient forty minute drive away. So this passed weekend I took a journey up north to that marvelous metropolis known as New York City on a hunt for paper. I was told by a good friend that if I was searching for more harder to find types of paper I should definitely check out New York Central Art Supply. When a girl's right she's right! Seriously, their entire second floor was dedicated to every kind of paper that you could possibly dream of. Not only that but organized into which section of the world the papers originated in. Right away I was able to find the paper I needed and along the way learn about it's country of origin and how it was made. All in all good experience!

With that said, I finished that lovely lion and I'll probably upload the photos in the next couple of days.

I'm such a tease

Here's a post dedicated to teasers!

First off I'm currently in the beginnings of an ongoing epic collaboration with five gorgeous illustrators, Robyn Ng, KJ Martinet, Catherine Chi, Victo Ngai, and Sophia Foster-Dimino, in which we are making a jam comic! Last week it was my turn for the first time and below is a little colored piece of my first panel.

(pssst the comics in black and white. I was having a bit of fun with color.)

You can catch a glimpse of the first panel up at Robyn Ng's blogspot and hopefully in a month we'll have the site all set up for you lovely ladies and gents to enjoy.

Next in this teaser filled post, I am currently almost done with a new animal sculpture and I'm really excited about it! Unfortunately I could only rely on Michaels for so much and when my stockpile of awesome paper ran out of certain kinds I'm left at a standstill. As I wait to go on my epic adventure in search of rare papers I'll leave you with this:

(A process shot. This was taken somewhere midway into the process.)
