This is a 18 by 24 inches linocut. This is a reduction cut so it will not be able to reprint another edition. There are 3 layers of yellows and brown.

The idea of this print comes from the idea of me missing my family back home who are living in another country.

Bed Time

I love to sleep and I find it hard to do so nowadays with backaches and noisy neighbors. I wake up cranky when I don't have enough sleep. My husband laughs at me about it because he's a morning person. This print is a new edition to the monster collection. Doesn't everyone love a good night sleep? You can get the print here.

When Cinderella Meets The Frog Prince

Cinderella has always been one of my favorite princesses along with sleeping beauty. One of the things that I am extremely envyous of was the beautiful pumpkin carriage. So romantic and only works with real horse power .. haha. This is my version of what a public transportation should consider. Ofcourse it's green, a color that I never get tired of. Its so enviroment friendly. You can get it here.

What's Going On

Alright alright, for those of you who found out and thought my husband and I were moving to Taiwan this August I am happy to announce that we are NO LONGER moving this year. We might sometime in the future but I am guessing not within 5 years.

Sorry for the confusion people. I was a little shock myself after talking to my husband, but what can you do about it. I am glad that he really enjoyed his trip there this March. I am even happier about my family loving him!

So here we are again, some new prints will come out very soon! I applied for the Renegade again this year! Hopefully I will get in. Then I can see all you great people out there in Chicago with my new stuff!

This piece is called Sheepy Love :) Does it reminds you of you and your loved one? You can get it here.

So, I thought it would be a good time to post this print of mine "Raaah!" today because this is what I've been feeling ever since I moved in to this apartment complex. Our upstairs neighbor are basically driving me insane with the day and night stomping. They've shaken the wall so hard that my print fell off my wall a couple times. My husband always wondered when will they fall through the wall. After a 6 months battle with the apartment management, they finally agreed to let us break our lease without charging us 2 moths rent. Yippy horay! The good always wins.

Multi-color Prints, Registration

I use 2 methods for multi-color prints. The one I used for "Oink" involves 2 plates for 2 colors. This method allow me to do multiple editions and re-use my plates.

The other method is the suicide method. Which only involves 1 plate. Its called suicide because there's no turning back. You carve the plate till there's nothing left. So you can only produce limited amount of the design, and only have 1 edition.

Both methods requires registration (line-up) which I suck and hate. But I've finally came up with a really cheap method. If you want to use multiple plates you have to make sure they are the same size. Once when you put the first plate down. You mark the corners with a pencil. Just 1 dot on each corner. Then when you're printing the second plate you can match up the corners. To be able to match up easily and without smudging I use a see through (clear) ruler. I tape the ruler down. Then line up the dots of one side. Then I can place my plate down without too much fuss.
Its hard to see the dots but they are there. Here's a picture with the ruler and the dots lined up.

After lining up the dots I lined up the plate with the ruler and the top left corner dot, and print.

This print is still in progress because it takes soo long to dry. I will put the entire process with more pictures later. I hope this help you guys out there that are poor and trying to find a cheap way to get things lined up :) ~~~Have fun~~~!!!!

Sorry Folks, Its Been A While

Towards the end of July and at the beginning of August was extremely busy for me. I moved and finally had the day at the Detroit Urban Crafts Fair. It was a great success, my friend Faun and I both made more $$$ than we expected. So, since I've sold out all my oink prints. Now I have to print a new edition. I thought I should share my process once again. Its so messy, but I love it.
This is the 2nd edition of oink
1. After I carved out the linoleum plate with the linoleum cutters.
2. I scooped out the ink red and white to make pink with my palette knife.
3. I rolled the ink on to the brayer and transfered the ink onto the linoleum plate.

4. Placed the linoleum plate on to the paper. Tried to center as much as I can.

5. Then flip the whole thing over so the paper is on top. I placed a paper towel on top so the brayer won't hurt the paper. I used the brayer to apply even pressure so the ink can transfer to the paper evenly.6. Tada! Here's the first layer of pink. They all rest on the drying rack for about 3 days to be dry enough to add the 2nd color.
7. Before and after the 2nd layer is applied.

You can find more prints on!

Yarn Yarn Yarn

This piece is inspired by my good friend Faun and my dearest grandma who used to knitt everything (clothes, lunch bags, backpack, purse ... you name it!). Lately I've noticed that there are just a tad bit more people that knitt and loves yarn than I thought there ever is.

Ummm ... do I need to say more?

I love Painting

These are the paintings I did last year and this year. I did 2 colorful ones then thought I should explore the potential of my colors first. So I moved on to a series of monocromatic figure painting. I love painting! Its so much fun and sooo relaxing!

Illustration Friday - Angels and Devils

Well, I thought this watercolor I did a couple weeks ago does fit the subject this week. My puppy Toby and my kitty Ruphy. When they sleep, they are angels. When they are awake, they are little devils!

PS. Sorry for the orangy spots. They do not appear on the painting. Kinko did a horrible job scanning it and they over charge!!!! I hate Kinkos!

Some More Watercolors

Here are some more watercolors I did in May. It was the end of the semester I was really stressed out. So I tried to have some fun with "The Crying Crocodile". It is a humorous piece about a crocodile who pooped on him self and cried him self a river. Yep, I almost went crazy. I really enjoyed this tho!

The size of the painting is 12 by 18 inches. It was painted on a coldpress acid free Jack Richeson premium watercolor paper (140lb). Its proudly presented on Etsy!
