UPDATE: Disney's WonderGround Gallery

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I'm so excited for the opening of WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District  at the Disneyland® Resort! This is just one of my two pieces on display. I'll be there signing 11am-1pm (eeeee!!!) along with several talented artists. Make sure you peruse through the site to see teasers of other incredible pieces. I can't wait to see you there. I guarantee you won't see me any happier. Unless you bring a baby elephant. And ice cream. But I might explode. More info below:

WonderGround Gallery - Opening June 9, 2012

Distinctive, eclectic and uncommon, this contemporary setting is, in itself, a blank canvas, providing the ultimate venue where unique art collections, works from a new generation of artists and unexpected finds in home and lifestyle merchandise, take center stage. WonderGround Gallery draws inspiration from Disney's deeply rooted art and storytelling-driven heritage - especially the idea of stepping through the looking glass, which the greatest of art allows us to do. 

Showcasing artwork inspired by Disney-Pixar films, characters and icons, as well as paying tribute to the one and only Mickey Mouse, more than 25 local and domestic up-and-coming artists will have their unique interpretations available for you to add to your Disney collection. This variety of commissioned, original and limited-edition artwork reflecting various styles, techniques and mediums will provide an eclectic environment in this store.

Maker Faire 2012... THE BEST!

Thursday, May 24, 2012

coolest business card ever

My new set-up! Thanks to Kevin, my mom, and sissy for all the help. I think I lucked out having a sister who does visuals for Banana Republic professionally. Ha!

Hundreds of hangers (wall) & bunches of masking tape (ground)

This year's Maker Faire was a lot of fun. I saw old & new friends & customers, including one who I hadn't seen since my very first fair in California 3 years ago. Wild wild! One gent said that my narwhal print reminded him of fishing with his dad when he was little. Dawww. And another customer got teary-eyed while at my booth, but then she explained it was her allergies. Dang! Anyway, I was only able to take a few photos. Fortunately, my sister took TONS, and when she posts photos I shall share here, too. See you at the next fair!

Maker Faire 2012 this weekend! Holy Moley!!!

Friday, May 18, 2012

I've been quietly working on preparations for my most favorite fair ever. I was initially on the waiting list, then 2 hours later I was officially in so I will enjoy this fair that much more. I feel so very lucky! I designed a few new items and will test them out this weekend. Have a peek!
Yep! Clink t-shirts and Tin Can Telephone stamps, as well as notebooks, iphone cases, and buttons. I only have a limited number of each, and how they do at the fair will determine their life expectancy. Kevin & I will be sporting matching Clink shirts to trigger your gag reflex from roll-the-eyes cuteness ;)

Anywho! I would love to see you all. Swing on by--tickets are still available.

Oahu Day 1: Getting Acquainted + Friendly Neighbors

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

It's been more than two years since I last traveled & vacationed by myself and I loooooooooooooooove traveling on my own. There's something incredibly empowering about being in complete charge of your own decisions while simultaneously vulnerable to your foreign surroundings. I told myself I would go into the trip with the following intentions:
  • relaxation (TOP PRIORITY!)
  • satiate my impatience for backpacking in Asia at the end of the year
  • test out working remotely and while traveling
  • rejuvenation (to help me survive this mad-busy summer)

Not even 3 minutes into boarding my plane did I befriend my in-flight neighbors and they offered me a ride to my hostel and lunch at their usual Korean spot. The wife is from Hawaii and he from Oakland, and they met by literally bumping into each other in a parking lot. So cute! They were the goofiest, sweet duo ever and it was great spending the afternoon with them.
I checked into my hostel and stepped out to the waters of Waikiki (that's not me, but she was as excited about the water as I was, hehe). A fellow hostel resident, Craig, joined me for the swim. In telling each other our life stories, I learned that he was the "wine guy" for Per Se in NYC for 2 years, and bounced around various reputable restaurants, his last being Momofuku Co. Whaaaaaaaaaaaat??! He grew tired of the "biz" and moved to Hawaii to surf. Simple as that. 

For dinner, I skipped Denny's, Red Lobster and McDonald's (ha!!) and opted for Marukame Udon. SO GOOD & cheap! This bowl of udon with a half boiled egg cost me $4.25
