In Full Bloom



Here are three new pieces I created for the May Flowers exhibition at the Hong Kong Cultural Center.  I've really been loving painting floral patterns lately!

Mask-erade!

Here's a project I recently art directed with Year 3 students.  We made masks from around the world using recycled materials, paper mache, and found objects.  I wish I had some more pictures of the process, but I love at least how the final pieces turned out.  Below, a selection of some of my favorites:


Korean sajachum, or lion dance masks.


Our sweet girls in their Korean masks.





 
Gorgeous masks inspired by the Dogon people of Mali, West Africa.



Some wild tribal masks from Vanuatu!

Volcano Rabbits

Alligators

Jaguars

Masks above are inspired by traditional Mexican dance masks.

Godspell Set Design







A few months ago, I created the set design for the YCIS version of the 1970s musical classic Godspell.  Director Alan Nazareno's modern take on the show called for a gritty, urban setting, so I created a huge graffiti wall using words at the central tenet of the musical's theme.  I can never profess to be as great a graffiti writer as some of my idols in the art world, but for my first time using a spray can, I think it turned out pretty well!  The amount of work required to write "letters" is incredible, and let it be said, I have a huge amount of respect for graffiti writers following this!

Wediquette

I'm excited to have contributed to the April 2011 issue of Hong Kong Tatler.  I illustrated my take on royal wedding do's and don'ts for the article, The Windsor Knot.
