Ugh, it's been a while~

Before I go off to Italy, having graduated and with more time on my hands, I feel the need to post things here... It seems forever that I haven't... hahhhhh oops... AHH!! I'm so excited though!! I'm leaving in two days!! *v* Hopefully I'll fill up a couple of sketchbooks and fill up 4GB of SD cards with awesome pictures!!I did this in fall of 2008. It's my version of Hanafuda, hwa-to, or Go Stop. It's originally a Japanese card game but I've been brought up thinking it was Korean, but, nope, it's just really popular in Korea and was ever since Japan occupied them. There are 12 suits, each with four corresponding with the months of the year and different flowers. There are normal cards (ones with just flowers), special cards (in the Korean version, I've known them as the kwang cards, or king cards- and they give you a butt load of points), ones with fauna, and ones with poetry scrolls. You receive points as you get certain combinations of them. I hope these are not too hard to decipher, but when I showed my Korean teacher she got all excited and was wondering if I was selling them... One of these days I need to find a way to print them on small plasticish cards- because that is how they are originally made- and I just like the snappy sound when people slam them down and whatnot. Anyway~ the title for these cards is Romancing Cowboy Go! Among these cards is a sequence of a cowboy venturing for love~ in stabilos, microns, and water color~ enjoy~

Last month, I made some toys!! Together they make a series called The Lactosies and live on a floating island of Everdairyland. I made them especially for our last Viscom senior show, we called "Eye Candy," at a toy store called Lulubell Toy Bodega. It is my favorite store in Tucson ever!! I have a few pictures thanks to one of my professors.

Here's some more recent stuff: two litho prints I've done the past couple of months~ The Stream of Consciousness was a challenged litho print with water color on top- (so it's a one of a kind print) & the Thirsty Hungry Map is an edition of 8.
