Felt and Yarn

I occasionally like to make crafts with my hands, and recently learned to crochet. I tried to learn in the past, but failed to understand the patterns. however, thanks to a friend its now clear as day! I had this kit on how to make a house for a year, and now it is made. :)

"A miniature house charm that i made after the big house"

"The parts that came with the kit minus the needle, not for beginners"

"The difference in size"

"The big house is also a handy pouch"

"for all the treasure in the world"

Late Night Printing

In my effort to post more here are some pics i just took while i was printing a batch and shirts and stuff.

"the yellow and glow in the dark part takes 2 coats D:"

"The the blue part just makes me smile when its on, a 3 colour process for this shirt"

"Screen printing can be fun"

"These books came from the same screen as above! they look super"

"classic lino cut, nerdy bear"

"I liked the nerdy bear so much, i made a cat as well,"

"and a nerdy elephant, it wouldn't be Hieng without an elephant"

The Forest Guardian

I am guilty of not posting stuff... again, but I've been hard @ work, expect some new designs going up online @ and possibly my etsy shop "hieng-made" sometime soon. Here is an idea from sketch to finish of one of the new shirts, "The Forest Guardian"

"Idea one (something furry with a big eye hiding in the shirt :D)"

"Idea 2 (decided on a green shirt, no horns?)"

"this is pretty much the final sketch before i drew it full scale, yes to the horns"

"Final shirt! I decided on light lines to POP it off the dark shirt colour"

"A little bonus! the yellow parts, glow in the dark!"

So that is that for now, I'm working on getting nicer photos for the shops, if you want to own this first, you can pick one up @ Function13 which is located in Kensington Market, Toronto @ 156 Augusta Ave, or @ C1 art space which is 44 Ossington, just north of queen west.

Or wait till it goes up online soon. More new designs to come, stay in tune.
