Fall and winter

O M Gee... well it feels like I might have disappeared for a while.. but only on the interweb. Anyways let get on with it, I've been busy running around trying to get stuff done and doing a couple of fairs and events since the last post.

First up, was The Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. It was my first crafts fair and i was pretty excited. It did rain the first day but it still turned out to be a pretty goo fair :D, thanks for everyone who came out. This was my first craft fair, and it wont be my last.

"it was the first time I had a giant tent to myself, didn't know what to do at first but it somehow worked itself out"

"elephant march"

Next up, was New York Comic Con/New York Anime Fest, I had a great time at the con, and again, thank you to everyone that came by and said hello and everyone who picked up something from my table, you guys are keeping me alive.

"this picture was a bit blurry."

"watching the crowd"

Up next, was CANZINE!!! except i didn't take pictures, dummy, but take a stroll to Myra, Peter, and Jeannie from some CANZINE goodness.

"Sorry No pictures :("

Now, I would like to invite all those who are in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) to come out to what may be a cold and chilly day, for........ City of Craft!!! This will be my first year there and hopefully not my last. IF you are one of the first 100 attendees, each day, you get a free goody bag, so come on out!

That is all for how, I'm working on new shirts and hopefully some some stuff for colder weather.

Fan Expo 2010, and Renegade Craft Fair

Last weekend was Fan Expo! Id first like to thank all those who came by, it made my last min trip there worth it. This year it was not in the basement cave room of the convention centre, so the light and mood was a lot better.

"These guys were awesome!! they each made their own costumes"

"There was an alien at my table or not..."

So next weekend, I'll be in Chicago for the Renegade Craft Fair, it'll be my first outdoor craft event in a tent, with so many other crafters, so I'm a little nervous. It a free event so if you are in the area please come out, and check out all the artist, and try to find me :)

The Cat Theif

A new zine character? It is first a new shirt design. Introducing the stealthy Cat Thief! He is to be printed on a shirt as early as next week, I'll make another post then. Before it was printed on a tee, I printed some posters to be put up around some parts of Toronto, who knows where they ended up.

"Unlike the posters the shirt will be a lighter ivory colour"

"a little printing process :) "

"Strength in numbers"

If you do find the Cat Thief or have your own photo of my shirts, you can post them on the 1%Talent (<- click) facebook page, thou I'm not too sure how these things work.

Otakon 2010

Well, the past weekend was Otakon! and an eventful one at that. One box i shipped didn't quite make it so some designs were not at the show. So make sure you guys check out 1percenttalent for more shirts. There was also that fire alarm that forced everyone at the convention centre to leave.

I somehow made it through, with the help of friends, fellow artist, and of course everyone who picked up something on the table big or small, even if it was a business card i made on the spot, I hope everyone was able to read my website off it!

"luckily I had everything with me to be crafty"

So much to do and so little time, I'll try to keep this blog updated as much as i can, I'm prepping to go to Chicago for the Renegade Craft Fair, I'll have a booth there and it'll be my first craft fair so i'll try my best to be more crafty. If you are in Chicago around sept 11-12, please come find me at wicker park!

Well, I started working in a print shop (nothing glamorous) but it will finance my creative adventures, so my updates will come slower than before. :( But I'll keep pushing!! So what is new? New notebooks are now on sale on my etsy shop. Also a new partnership with a small Montreal art gallery/artshop Monastiraki, They will be carrying my tees as soon as I send them there, which i hope is soon.

Nerdy animal notebooks, there are currently 5 of them, but i hope that there will be more. I also hope to print them on other stuff, we'll seee enjoy these for now.

Notes books

I was so busying thinking about how I was going to fly to LA for Anime expo this weekend that I forgot to update, so here is a quick update! I usually print on pre-made notebooks, but while cleaning the "studio" I stumbled upon some stacks of paper user for my book making project a while back. So i Decided to make some of my own. They don't look as perfect, but they include more different kinds of paper, and still feature my own art work. Maybe I will try selling these when I make them better. Here are some picture while you wait.

"Featuring kraft, light weight watercolour and lined paper"

"Some of the covers... well all of them I made 4"

"and on the back, promote when you can :D"

Hand Made Bag

Some more old new, I decided to make my own tote bags just to try it out, I don't have high sewing skills, but i did it anyway. I sold most it the stuff below @ anime north, so until i make new stuff there wont be any more. The fabric used was linen which isn't too cheap, so i will try out newer options. The print i used on it was the elephant king, I was inspired by an Indian Rice bag.

"Raw raw raw ah ah ah... materials"

"The magical tool to put it all together"

"Tada, Thanks to those who picked up the bags"

I did my best, they aren't perfectly made and I hope they hold up to everyday use. These Bag were 100% hand printed and hand made. I had some left over fabric, too little to make a bag of so i made these little draw string pouches, with lino stamps of animals with glasses.


"Bear and Elephant"

"Love for all"
