Sticker sheet 4 - Self Care

Can't believe it has been two years since I made a sticker sheet. Here is a new one. I have been working on affirmations for a decade as a gift for people, to myself, and to just share my type drawing skills. This one I made as as a reminder to take care of yourself. I need it to remind myself. Please hustle, do good work, fight for whats right, stand up for your rights, all that. And....take good care of yourself because the world needs you. 

Want one? Here's the link ETSY.

Did you see the last one? Its here.






Short story 25 - Haenyeo

This is a short I've been wanting to do for awhile. In fact, I drew this sketch over a year ago and never put the final touches on it until now. For those that don't know, a Haenyeo is a word for Korean women who dive off the coast of Jeju island. No time for a history lesson but what they do, many could not at the age of 20 or 80.

Mode 2 - Video Inspiration

MODE2 "Preludes" Art Exhibition in Paris from Rebild Productions on Vimeo.
I'm not joking when I say I have been a fan of this guy's since I was a kid. It all started with Spraycan Art by Jim Prigoff. Then , just seeing his work in Graffiti magazines (before the internet). Then actually seeing some of his pieces up close in NYC. Now you can follow him on social media and he has had a website for at several years. Check out this video of him putting together a show!
