Design Festa Gallery 

November really flew by! At the beginning of the month my mom flew over from the US to visit me here in Japan. The first weekend she was here was a huge art event I had a booth at, Design Festa. As I found out upon entering the venue it is one of the largest art events in Japan. Massive! Something close to 3,000 booths and 11,000 exhibitors. Who knows how many thousands of visitors. Anyways I had an absolute blast and if you're in the area next year you should go! I could easily spend the two days there just looking at all the booths there is so much to see.



Bali Monkey Juggle + PLZ 

Mid November my mom and I parted ways at the airport and I headed to Bali for my first Bali Illustration Workshop. The workshop is a week with several mentors coming to teach from all over. This year we had Dan Warren, Dave Rapoza, James Zapata, Karla Ortiz, Kekai Kotaki and Saskia Gutekunst. It would be hard to summarize completely but trust me when I say it was worth it. I've made so many amazing friends and hope, if everything falls into place, return again next year.

Here's a quick shot during the workshop & more on my instagram.


December! I think I've fainted.

And now December is here and I have soo many comments to reply to. I want to give a huge thank you for all the +fav's & +watch's. It's been a bit overwhelming.

Hey! Right now I feel like I've found my stride in creating more and more personal works including a book. Ironically because I'm producing more I'm also getting a lot more inquiries for work. Giggle 
How are you?

Oh cool, would love to see the book when it's done! I'm doing well, keeping busy with commission work, and starting to outline my goals going forward :P. I've been lucky enough to get a provincial startup grant - that gives me some added freedom to get to where I want to be. How's Japan?! I have a friend who went there for "1 year" and hasn't come back haha.
