Power Rangers @ the Cute Enemies art show

     I got to do the Cute Enemies Art Show that runs up to next month at Leanna Lin's Wonderland. It has a LOT of great art from insanely amazing artists depicting 'the cute side of villainy'. Tony Bui curated the show and assigned various pop-culture villains to the artists.

Evil Green Ranger

The properties covered from Austin Powers to Thundercats to Marvel Comics to Star Wars, etc.

Rita Repulsa

Can you guess which property I did? Lol. Power Rangers of course!!

Lord Zedd

     The silkscreened version of these digital illustrations are now available online!! They are 6-color screenprints (except for the Green Ranger with just 5) on Canson Edition Paper.

Lady Knight Vs Dragon (and CAB2014 re-cap)

     This silkscreen print debuted this past weekend at Comic Arts Brooklyn. I was very excited to get on this show having heard a lot of great things about it from the previous year. I did pretty well, considering I have never done it before. It was great to share the table (which were bigger than the usual festival tables!!) with one of my comic mentors, CM Butzer. I always learn something new from him. I'm hoping to be able to do it again next year! Yey.

     Prior to the fest, I tried to get as much done as possible. I had a lot of fun working on this project (being one of my many pet projects waiting on the wings) and finally got to print it.

     I did 5 color layers for this- white, magenta, yellow, black, and blue. As much as I love having 5+ layers on a silkscreen project, I should try to cap it maybe at 4 layers. It is so much work with little pay off sometimes depending on the project.

It was fun nonetheless.

If you missed it on the show, it is now available online.

The super late APE 2014 recap....


     Earlier this month, I went to APE (Alternative Press Expo). This is my first show outside of the usual NYC-area shows I exhibit at. I was hesitant at first because of the travel costs, but it ultimately paid off.

     Prior to this show, I was trying to get as much new silkscreen stuff I could complete. I had the X-men, and What the Baku?! accordion books to show off. And also, my Tribal Masks mini silkscreen print set. Which was awesome!

     Once in San Francisco, getting to and from the hotel to and from Fort Mason (the place the event was held) was a bit of a challenge when you don't know how to use the public transportation. Along with all the luggage, traversing the very steep streets of San Francisco was tiring. Thank god for the free shuttle buses APE provided after the festival! Those cut down the walking time.

     The actual show was AWESOME. I met some amazing artists and did really well. All my hesitations were quelled by the first day. There were no slow times at all. There may be a break here and there, but it was quite busy throughout the 2 days. I'm so glad that my silkscreen stuff were well received and inspired me to really do more, considering the amount of time and effort it took to complete them. Thank you, Thank you, SF folks!!! You made my trip!!! I appreciate and grateful to everyone who stopped by my table, chatted, and got my stuff. I definitely would love to come back and maybe do more shows out west! I felt like I really reached the type of audience I was hoping for.

     After the fest, I finally go to explore San Francisco and took a lot pictures. I didn't want to go back home without seeing the Bay Area. I got to see and enjoy the majestic fog that covered the Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of the Arts, the beautiful town of Sausalito, walked around Fisherman's Wharf, climbed Coit Tower, visited many local shops, and really enjoyed the lights of the night. These happy moments, in addition to being able to show my work to a great audience, really made the trip.

     It was during this trip that I really realize for myself that being positive and avoiding the presence of negativity is the way to go. Being around like-minded people who appreciates you and accommodates you the same way you appreciate and accommodate them is the key to, not only being happy, but also in building strong relationships.

I look forward to doing more shows in the future!

If you miss my stuff during this event, you can get them ONLINE or visit me on upcoming shows!
