Fall 15 Preview Shows

Tradeshow season! The two shows I did this time around are NY NOW aka The New York Gift Show Feb 1-4 and Capsule Vegas on February 16-18 both showing Mokuyobi's Fall 2015 season. It was a whole new game for me this time coming from the West coast instead of the East so I had to fly to the New York show just a month after I moved across the country (not to mention it was winter!). But I also got to drive from LA to Vegas which was really beautiful. The desert is a whole new landscape from what I'm used to. Feast your eyes on my set up for the two shows.

NY Now- Javits Center, New York City

Capsule Vegas, Sands Expo, Las Vegas

Artists You Should Know: Mike Hinson

Mike Hinson is a super rad illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. I love the colors in his work. The line work is also pretty killer, totally my jam. Check out these rad pieces and follow him on the gram @HinsonMike. His cartoon mash-up pieces are pretty hilarious. See more below!

Thailand Part 2

Here we go with part deux showing more of the activities we did so basically just Elephant riding which was the highlight of the entire trip let's be real. We also visited a bunch of temples, one of which, the White Temple in Chiang Rai which was amazing- more of an art piece than a temple. It was so super ornate and detailed, not to mention all white, obvi. The inside was very intricately painted with all kinds of imagery including a lot of pop culture references, wouldn't you guess? MJ, Kung Fu Panda, Superman, etc. I've never seen anything like it. Lastly a sunrise Ankor Wat view and no trip is complete without an obligatory handstand pic.

Thailand Part 1

I went on a trip with my family to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos (for an hour or so), and Myanmar (a day trip). I love visiting countries in Asia and I hope to one day cross them all of my list (Seoul is definitely on my wish list for up next). What I loved most about Thailand were all of the colors (obviously). Everything was so vibrant there, the houses, boats, markets, food, and the scenery; so I had a lot of fun taking photos. Here are some of my favorite images.
