witness this

once in los angeles, three handsome guys walked across my front yard to the doorstop.  little did i know, this lovely 'chance' meeting brought to me dersu rhodes. a very cool creative passionate spirit. he came around to interview my housemates for a feature on his website, witness this. we kept in touch and i was eager to work with him. when he asked me to collaborate on a project i jumped at the chance, and in the meantime i made this artwork for a dj set he did.

(i type chance inverted because i don't believe in chance, everything happens as it is meant to happen)

Sampler Exhibition piece

I currently have a piece in the online exhibition Sampler, put on by Brown Paper Bag / Eyra Gallery.
I haven't done much personal work this year so I was super excited to be asked to be part of this! 
I was given a vintage handkerchief to use as a starting point and from there the brief was open. I spent a really long time working on this, it is quite a large and detailed embroidery! Anyway all of the work in the exhibition is beautiful and unique. Please check it out here, and if you wish to purchase a piece they are all for sale here

Some information about the exhibition:


Sampler is an embroidery project. It's more than just that, though. It's also a mail art project, and repurposes vintage items.

The project features 5 talented artists and illustrators from around the world: Sarajo Frieden, Lorena Marañón, Perrin, Laura McKellar, and Amy Blackwell.

Each participant was sent a vintage handkerchief. They were instructed to embroidery and adorn it however they like and mail it back to Sara, the project creator and organizer. The results are now available for all to see. They can be purchased here.

Sampler was organized by Sara Barnes. She is the creator of the daily visual arts blog Brown Paper Bag. Follow her Twitter to find out other projects she organizes and how you can get involved.

magical disneyland, los angeles

i just love disneyland. music comes out of the sky, the rides are so intricately detailed, you just can't help but have a sore head by the end of the day from smiling so much! it's amazing how all of my childhood favourites come to life, disneyland is so magical.
