Honey Bunches of Sam, Chris and Oats

I drew this up with Sam and Chris at a Barnes & Noble about a week ago.

While writing e-mails and researching on teaching English in Korea, I ate a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats, hence the title of this blog. I'm kind of getting tired of Honey Bunches of Oats (and it used to be my favorite cereal too) but I can never get tired of that one nutella cereal in Italy (damnation). I got a call from a recruiter in Korea a few days ago, and they found a teaching job for me in Osan City. I'm excited but a little nervous. It's been over 12 years since I've been to Korea. I was in the fifth grade and crazy about Sailor Moon, and wherever I went there was Sailor Moon merchandise... It was the only time I ever saw my Korean family and it was one of the greatest times of my life. I am probably remembered as a funny looking brat though. Anyway...

I'm Etsying it up again, and selling some chum bears that I crochet and hand make into chumming goodness. Sam and I sold these at the Phoenix Comicon in May, 2010. I can do custom orders too. WOO!

Oh, I am also working on a short six page comic collaboration with Sam. It's going to be lots of fun! Plus, Chu Chu Chums is doing a back and forth comic, where Sam and I take turns doing 2 panels. I must say that it is a rather surprising story and I hope that we have readers, haha.

I believe that's what is all going on right now. I 'll be sure to keep you updated from time to time.

Thanks for reading whoever you are!

Sensory Overload - Art Show @ LuluBell Toy Bodega

The reception was on July 10th, but the art will still be there for the next two weeks. Sensory Overload also features art of my favorite artists and peers from school: Bek Davis, Christi Rochin, Alex Waters, and Andy Steinbrink. If you can't make it to Tucson anytime soon, here are a couple of photos of my most recent work now showing at Lulubell!

I painted some nesting dolls, each representing one of the five senses. From left to right: touch, hearing, sight, taste, and smell.
