Hi everyone! There's a reason for the lack of new art on the site recently, aside from my legendary laziness and the hot and hazy days of summer. I actually have been cuttin' and gluein' (even tho' the paper sticks to me these days). I just can't show it to anyone yet. As a cut-paper ninja, I value secrecy. I have to. It's in the rule book. All will become apparent soon-ish. 'Til then, some news nuggets:

  • A Huge Thank-You goes out to Matt Dawson for nominating me for the "Brillante Weblog Premio-2008" award...thingy. Rest assured, Matt, that I am honored to receive this award, and will drop by asap to claim my solid gold statuette. Which will then be dismembered, melted down and sold to pay for my rent and the paper which is my life-blood.
  • Startdrawing.org (update 2015:  dead link) was started with the aim of showcasing and sharing drawings from talented artists in Asia, and in the process, promote the joys of drawing. Mark Deutsch contacted me a little bit ago, asking if he could profile my work on the site. It's so nice to be asked.
  • The first batch of postcards shipped out a few days ago. Thanks to everyone who ordered a pack. I appreciate the support! I couldn't make art without you. On a side note, I was wondering if anyone out there was interested in packs of individual cards (ie: 5 or 10 copies of "Hitching a Ride on the Breathe of Fortune") as opposed to the current variety pack. If enough people are, I will gladly add them to the shop.
  • "Everyone In Together", the current group show at Gallery 1988 San Francisco ends today! If you happen to be in the SF area, drop by to check out the scads of great work. If you're interested in purchasing any of my pieces in the show, you can ring up the gallery at (415) 409-1376.
