Seedlings Up For Adoption!

That’s right folks! Brand new Seedlings are up for adoption on my Etsy store! These little tree spirits of mischief & joy have been happily finding homes. I’ve still got a few left and a second batch goes live on the weekend of Dec 13th – that’ll be the last batch in time for giving that perfect holiday gift of cuteness to a loved one or yourself!

Blacky the Dragon Dog Custom Vinyl Show

I’m taking part in an wonderful custom vinyl figure show “Blacky Best In Show”. Each artist will create our own unique Blacky! My Blacky is about to be reincarnated as forest spirit! This character created by Martin Hsu is the best friend of Dragon Boy. This is only my 2nd time doing a custom vinyl so I’m very excited. Not to mention Martin Hsu has always been a big inspiration to me, so playing on top of his design will be really fun!

Curated by:

Martin Hsu and Korena Rogers

The Dubious Expedition

I’ve been thrilled to be a part of the group art show, The Dubious Expedition, at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland in LA. Curated by Leslie Levings (Beastlies) and Shing Yin Khor (SawdustBear), the show has a wonderful array of creature makers in the line up. The theme is “A group exhibit of the glorious, curious treasures from the lost ship HMS Chimera”. My contribution is poisonous Sea Urchin Seedlings! With each Urchin comes an intricate character card that tells their part of the story on the ship HMS Chimera and describes their biology. These very special Seedlings’ also are sculpted to fit on their own unique stone bases.

The work is on sale till Nov. 30th. All the artwork can be viewed & purchased online here. If you’re around LA, it’s well worth the trip to Eagle Rock too. Leanna Lin’s store is great!
