i am 8-bit!

Many things have been happening since coming to the States. The most recent happening has been the completion of my new piece for the 'i am 8-bit" show opening this week at the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery, in Hollywood.


'The Ice Climber'
20 x 16, acrylic and pencil crayon on BFK.



I enjoyed creating the Yeti characters and I'm excited for the show and to see what the other artist produce. Check out the flier below for more details.

Some things that happened a WHILE back ago include participating at Anime Expo in Los Angeles (July), selling my prints and hand-made plush collectibles and attending the big San Diego Comicon. There were many individuals at both conventions and I got to see a lot of art and meet talented artists as well as experience the wonderful world of cosplay.

rare open space found beside the convention center.


Dom and I have been interning with James Jean and Project Gallery for the last month and a half. We have seen and have learned a great amount from both.

On September 6th, Project Gallery will be having a Fresh Faces show featuring Dominique Fung, Nimit Malavia, Yuta Onoda and myself. Its going to be e-p-i-c. Thanks to Beau Basse for getting this in the works.

Expect to see more art based posts.
