This was about…3 weeks ago? (wow!) Been meaning to upload this but kept getting sidetracked by everything else.
I was putting together my frames for SOI. (Also got lots of nice tips to make it easier and faster the next time I go frame something.) Ellie was already wrapped and done when I remembered to take pictures, which was okay, compared to last year where I forgot to even bring the camera.
It was an … adventure. From assembling the frames on a deadline, to hauling them to fedex (walked and got a bit lost; the directions I got was a block short), and then shipping cost panic! (400?! 270!? …. went down to 200 in the end, which was ok since I wasn’t even paying for it. (yay)) It was overall a fantastic day once everything was over. (FedEx dude was super helpful, sun was shining, got my pay stub, and got myself a new book.)
I was going to update with something else… but, I’m feeling a bit lazy. So, here are a few …somewhat recent sketches instead.
What I got in the mail today! I actually didn’t have to go pick it up! Which is awesome, mostly cause I always had to pick up my packages (from not being at home, having had to be at other places…) from where ever the pick-up locations are. Anyway, I decided to order a 11x14 print of ELLIE a while ago when S6 had one of those free shipping promotions. It looks awesomeeee!
Now, I just need to figure out where to put it.

hello stranger / congratulations
Hello! It’s been a while. / Thank you! C:
Something new. First traditional piece in a while! C:
Been working on some new stuff (books,/zine?), got a haircut (hair is short now…), planning to start a food blog (haha…), got some good news/surprise (got into SOI again…frame shopping here we go), and trying to get organized and get things done.
That’s pretty much it! Hopefully I’ll update some more sooner rather than later.
Not really art related … Bought a new keychain that light up through the nose and make noise! Mines the cow. C:
On Saturday a few of my friends and I got a couple of tables for Canzine West. It’s a zine/crafts fair by the Broken Pencil. I previously posted a picture of the zine I was working on and some buttons…they were for this event.
Top picture: The amazingly-talented Tina (left) and I (right) shared a table
Second picture: Yun’s hilarious zines and her “Bob” silkscreen (left), and Joslin’s spunky neon crafts (right).
Third picture: I forgot to take a picture of Lou’s table, so here’s her beautiful PORTALS zine. She also did postcards, which she posted all of them on her blog.
This pretty much sums it up! I think you guys did a super amazing job!
We’ll be better prepared next time. C:
First update in a while! Making some stickers for Canzine! For those of you going to Canzine West, I’ll have a bit of stuff at a table that I’m sharing with some friends (since we all don’t have much ready … or at least that’s the case with me haha). I won’t be there, since I got scheduled to work. Boo.
And a little life update…
I haven’t been drawing since the end of summer. I also haven’t been on tumblr 24/7 for the past … two months? Life also got a bit more …demanding around that time. I got a part-time job, and learning to juggle that while also producing work was something that I was unused to. Mostly because when I went to school, I only focused on school and my work. It took a while to adjust.
So I decided to take a break, get out of my slump, adjust, and live a little.
Other than that, I also learned how to knit during my little break! I bought a lot of yarn … though I only started two scarves. one of which is hardly done … and the other is close but not quite done. I bought enough yarn for four scarves and I don’t know when I’ll be able to finish them!
Will update soon-ish!
