I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday! Here are a few shots from this month.
I’m almost done with a roll of film, so hopefully those turn out okay! Most of my time behind the camera these days are for shooting M&S stock, so I haven’t really picked up the camera just for fun. I’m slowly would like to balance that out a bit more.
Lately, I’ve enjoyed working with soft carving blocks. It’s much faster than linoleum although it probably won’t hold up as long. Like beading or paper cut, the required repetitive motions totally gets me into relaxation mode. I ended up making a of wrapping paper for the holidays, and I’m looking forward to hosting a workshop later at the store. For Christmas, I was lucky to be gifted several of Angel’s ceramic pieces. I love her use of color and pattern. We’re brainstorming ideas for a collaboration later so tuned! And finally, BJ’s been working on some new lettering that I’m really excited about. Here’s his recent one for Myth & Symbol.
One of the highlights of working at Myth and Symbol has to be meeting creative people and getting to share their beautiful work with others. When I bought a bowl last year from an event at the craft center, I knew I had to track down whoever made it. By coincidence, Angel happened to come by the shop before I could contact her down and everything came together from there. Soon after, I got to know Anne, her best friend and another local talent. So we brainstormed a little bit and next Saturday, they’ll be at the store with all their goods. If you are around, please come visit before I buy everything!

Here’s a flyer I put together for them. I’m still brushing up doing layout and text, but the doodles were fun!
My youngest sister Thuy just graduated early from SCAD last month, and she’s been at home working on her portfolio. I’ve been pestering her for the longest time to let me print some of her work. The circus people, one of my favorites, will be available soon. I’ll also post her finished website when the time comes. If anyone is looking for an awesome illustrator/designer she won’t dissapoint.
