Hook It Up

I'm obsessed with scouring local home goods shops and hardware stores around town. This piece incorporates all these great 70s-style wall hooks I found - hooks like this are ubiquitous in an old-style Chinese house - but look even better when placed together in an artistic way. Love those old-school color combos!

Sweet Tooth.

 Ohhh, shoe shopping really is a guilty pleasure, no?... These are six photo backdrops I created for the Fashion Wonderland Exhibition at the Lane Crawford Beijing store.  Hmm, will try to post some better detail shots of these at some point.  Ahhhhhh, and I'm getting simultaneous shoe/sugar cravings thinking about going wild in there!  Can you imagine the damage you'd do with a pocketful of candy to keep your shopping energy going all day? 

Lisa, Lisa.

Great little feature about the Lost Things show and MobArt Gallery in the August issue of Hong Kong-based Lisa Magazine.  Oops!  A bit late posting this - We just took down the show today!  

Thanks to GoodFellas (great show, guys!) & all who were able to stop by last night for the closing party.

Ni Hao, Beijing.

I'm in Beijing!  Well, figuratively speaking, at least.  Here's a sneak peek of some work I recently completed for the Lane Crawford Beijing store.  Welcome to Fashion Wonderland!  
Will post more detailed pics of the project later this week.

Here's What's Next...

These don't look like much now, but stay tuned... They'll be a bit more exciting in a few weeks!

You Make Me Lost Focus

Ok, ok... Let me explain!

These are two of my pieces from the Something to Say group exhibition a few months back.  (I should have posted them soooo long ago!) The slogans in these illos are from actual T-shirts spotted in Hong Kong!  It was a fun project to illustrate the sometimes silly, random slogans that pop up on tees, jeans and tote bags around town.  Chinglish, anyone?  

I have a whole collection of these captured phrases ... hope I can make a few more into interpretive drawings!

My Muse

If you're in Hong Kong, grab the September issue of Muse Magazine; (one of my faves for all things art-related happening in the city!) inside there's a nice little feature of some of my paintings from the Lost Things show with MobArt Gallery.

Thanks Muse !
