camille rose garcia

No, I did not miss Camille Rose Garcia's recent show in LA called "Hydra of Babylon".
For shame that would have been.

Though she didn't have any new pieces with our tentacled friends, her squid plush was there to represent for us.
Here are the prints of her past work with the sea creatures lurking.
*sorry the photo's aren't great*
If you missed it, view the show here.

Etsy Monday

I've done an etsy feature before but that was a year ago, so it's definitely time to bring it back. I present to you: Etsy Monday. I may do it every other week or monthly... let's just go with the flow and see how it goes.

My first Etsy Monday find: Lisa Falzon.
Besides her dreary yet dreamy illustrations, she also includes novel storytelling with each piece. Multi-talent at it's best.

the sea also rises

"Nakatomi has finally unleashed the new collaborative art print by Tim Doyle and Kevin Tong. “The Sea Also Rises” is an 18″ x 24″ screenprint, has an edition of 140, and is $30. There is also a line art variant with an edition of 30 for $50. In case you’re wondering, Doyle did the drawing and Tong handled the colors. Visit NakatomiInc.com."

-Found this baby at omgposters.com. I've actually met Kevin before during a Craft show; nice fellow and fantastic silk screener. I use to silk-screen myself, so seeing his crazy details and color usage, I definitely appreciate his work.

Street Sweets Show

Baby Shines Bright by Thomas Han
YumekaMakotoka by Mari Inukai

What a great time to start blogging again! Came back from the Street Sweets show at Gallery Nucleus with some octo love. Because you know... with Japanese street fashion comes octopuses. We've got Thomas Han's hybrid pink creature and Mari's girl rocking a little devil octopus on her shirt. Don't miss this show if you're around L.A. right now.

pointless post

Sorry, this blog has been really disappointing lately :(

I actually just wanted to update with...

has anyone else noticed how the subject of my beloved octopus creature is so popular in the art world today? I use to be so excited to see something tentacle-ly in a gallery but I feel like I see it everywhere now. It's great yet overwhelming for me because I just don't know which to update first and unfortunately, it leads to no update at all.

I apologize. I will try to get back on my toes. Seriously.

I'm serious.
