Character Portraits Book

I'm thrilled to have my work featured in Pictoplasma's new book Character Portraits

 

As you can see, the gnomes are thrilled too! 

Gnomes looking at gnomes looking at gnomes looking at gnomes... I like this theme becuase it reminds me of how I'm constantly making stuff that looks back at me. 

The image is of the Gnome Team Selfie I made for Pictoplasma's Portrait Gallery in 2014. The book is full of portraits of all manner of characters by some wonderful artists whose work I look up to. Get it on the Pictoplasma website

Group Show: WonderWomen at University of Minnesota

As it happens, I have work in another group show that starts with a W this month! 

WonderWomen, at the University of Minnesota's Katherine E. Nash Gallery, is a show of works by female artists who are influenced by comics and other pop culture. I sent them some animations from the past year and this assortment of tiny mochis. 

But I'm burying the lede here: I'm in a group show that also contains work by Alison Bechdel! Along with others whose work I admire, and others whose work I look forward to exploring. Here's a closer look at the show information:

Group Show: White Monsters at Everyday Mooonday 

I'm thrilled to be a part of White Monsters, a group show opening on January 9th at Everyday Mooonday in Seoul.  

The theme of the show is self-explanatory, and as you can see, I'm in extremely good character-artist company! 

My own white monster is named Big Thwicked in Thwhite (Thwilla).

 

Thwilla is an extra-large thwicked, so she's extra cute and cuddly, and also extra evil. She gets her rainbow colors from all the candy creatures that she eats in Mochimochi Land.

Happy 2015

Happy 2015, year of the sheep! I’m taking that as an auspicious sign for Mochimochi Land. 

This year I want to focus more on projects that truly excite me, and I want to get less distracted by the shorter term stuff.

Exciting things are in store for 2015, including: 

– A solo show!

– A new book! (Which you can already preorder if you are so inclined.) 

– Other things! 

I'm also aiming to update this website more often. I'm definitely in the habit of ignoring it and focusing on my other website (which has a much bigger audience), but that's not a reflection of my overall interests and goals. Or I might change up my other website to incorporate more art and be less knitting-centric. Either way, I want to share my work more with people who don't knit, is the point!

Here's to a playful and inventive 2015!
