Rare Device gallery opening UPDATE

Update, update!

Today's gallery opening was a great success! We'd like to thank everyone who made it, and those who made it happen: Giselle from Rare Device, Asaki who made a beautiful window display, our friend Liz who helped pull this off in such a short amount of time, and James for expertly driving nails. A special shout-out to my two fellow robins, Jenn and Katy, for raising the bar high with their amazing art.

Almost all paintings are gone, so stop by before Nov. 8th to see the show and maybe pick up one of the remaining ones.

Rare Device, a modern design shop and art space, will host a ROUND ROBIN book signing and gallery opening for us!

Along with the books, we will exhibit 8 new original bookplate paintings (4"X6"), and 11 sequential prints (11"X14") from both books. Also, our friend, the amazing display artist Asaki Oda, is creating our window display (sneak peek below).

We are very excited to partner with Rare Device and we hope to see you there!

Howdy. It's been so long, I almost forgot how to post!
Things in Dani-land have been busy. Something to do with an "Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs"...

But here we are again at the doorstep of this year's Alternative Press Expo, and Jennifer Chang, Katy Wu and I have brought ROUND ROBIN 2 to the potluck.

Here is an image I made for the new book, inspired by Bulgarian Folklore. And some progress shots for good measure.

Hope to see you at APE, Oct 1-2!
(Stay tuned for table # and details.)

"Art Blocks For Ghana" Auction Begins

Howdy friends!

I'm taking a minute from a swamped work schedule to tell you about the impressive "Art Blocks For Ghana" auction taking place this week. For those who haven't heard of the project, here is their mission statement:

"The Picture Book Project Foundation presents Art Blocks for Ghana – a charity art auction of original works created by top artists within the animation and illustration community to provide boarding and education for orphaned children in Ghana, West Africa. Online art auction coming March 12-20. 2011."

In addition to this, The Picture Book Foundation will also be donating part of its proceeds from Art Blocks to raise awareness and support Dice Tsutsumi's "Artists Help Japan and Tsunami Fund" and Give2Asia.
