Hero Exhibit

Hi everyone! I know it's been a very long time since I updated this blog, but a lot has been going on. Plus I created a Tumblr account a little while back and have been updating that instead. I'll try to keep up this blog too, but if you have Tumblr feel free to follow me there =)

In other news, I’m very proud to announce that I have a piece in the Hero exhibit at the Orange County Great Park opening tomorrow, January 5th! There will be an opening reception from 10am - 2pm and several of the artists will be in attendance, including yours truly! So if you’re in the neighborhood, drop by and say hi =) There are a lot of amazing artists showing in this exhibit and I feel very privileged to have a piece in among the greatness (and very scared and nervous!). See the attached flyer for a list of some of the artists showing and other details!

I decided to do a tribute to Miyazaki’s movie, “Howl’s Moving Castle”. My piece is titled “A Night’s Lodging” and is a cut paper illustration of the castle from the title.

This was my first time working in this medium, and there was a lot of learning involved as I was creating this. I really like it though and already have ideas for several more pieces using this method =) Sorry about the pictures - I took these right before I had to drop off the piece and was in rather a rush. I didn’t get a picture that was straight on (most are at slight angles, like the one above). Once I get this back at the end of the exhibit I’ll do a scan that will show the piece better. Here are a couple of more pics!

Hope to see some of you at the reception! =)
