i'm so excited - this is my first piece to be shown in asia, and in Hong Kong, no less!!
HK being one of my old home towns and one of my favorite places in the world.
and i'm also really glad to see Arrested Motion grow and grow into one of the best art
blogs out there. thanks again, Tanley & Hung-hei!

please please go check it out this friday if you're in Hong Kong!
i wish i could be there just to see Akino Kondoh's work in person.
(and if you're not in HK, please stop by my web shop for the small originals sale!)

In the Wake of Dreams

sorry i've been m.i.a for a while for many reasons but mostly because my computer
broke and had to switch to a new one, without smooth transitioning... T__T

all that aside, i'll be in a 4-girl show this Saturday in Los Angeles (Culver City), this weekend,
which i'm super excited about!

to be in a group show, Four Dreams, curated by the lovely Monica Choy (now Salazar),
