Sometimes I feel the need to keep working on a piece long after its done. In doing so I like to play with interesting compositions or manipulations that sometimes end up creating a better image than the original. In this piece I mirrored the image of my Sasha painting, and was able to create a Rorschach effect.
This was a personal piece of serendipitous random silkscreen printing, its actually the newsprint practice sheet that I used to get rid of excess ink before printing my final (which will be uploaded soon). I found it fit the literature, and the feeling of the piece. Written by Christopher Turalski.
The prompt of this piece was to create a music even poster (with or without type included) of one of my classmate's favorite band. I got PSY as my musician, which proved to be an extremely difficult task for me. Above is the original piece I created and below are the variations of color.
In the end I wasn't satisfied with the piece so I sought out to make an entirely new piece. Above is my music event poster for PSY, Gangman Style, made out of a mixture of Asian and American tattoo flash.
My first piece for portfolio, in which we created a story in class by beginning the first sentence with 'When I was seven I...' Then we passed it to our classmates 4x in order to finish our story. My story was about a archeologist girl who stole her mother's plates, only to break and bury them in the yard. Created in Chris Buzelli's senior Portfolio class.
This is a personal piece that is most definitely still a work in progress.
But I wanted to post it anyways so I could see the progression of the piece
from its current state. (It needs a lot of work)
And so I continue to play with photoshop.
Its been a while since my last post, but I've been playing around
with technique including using photoshop to finish my work digitally.
This is a personal piece (not for portfolio) but I'm currently working on
a series of myth based figures and I hope to continue my use of this technique.
A project I've been working on for a few years now.
Collecting family pictures and illustrating them in conjunction to lyrics, poetry, or snippets of letters.
There's no real aim for this project, I just find it a comforting personal project.
Family is very important to me, and I like to celebrate the happy memories.
Women who kill their Children.
My junior year thesis project with the theme of the year: 'Man-Made Monsters'.
Under which I chose 'Women who kill their Children'.
Created in Thomas Woodruff's class.
Women who kill their children commit a crime disconnected from nature’s primal nurturing instinct in horrifying acts of selfishness, vindicated by delusions of freedom and personal gain. However monstrous these women have become, oftentimes they themselves were victims of their circumstances driven to extremes by isolation and abandonment.
It is my hope that with this series of portraits the viewer will look beyond the monstrousness of these individual’s crimes to see the damaged women beneath who believed their only means of escape was filicide. In the tradition of myth, those who commit the most unspeakable crimes allow us learn what it is to be truly human, imperfect and fallible.
Disclaimer: I am not a wanted criminal.
I was feeling particularly curious, and decided to google myself.
In doing so I found that the third item to come up under my name was a wanted posting for a woman convicted in Florida. While we share the same name, our similarities end there.
She being a tall, blonde, white woman.
Myself a short, dark haired, bespectacled half asian.
So just for future reference, I would just like to clarify that I have never been incarcerated.
Happy Valentines everyone! <3
Hope you enjoy all the updates.

One of the last pieces I did in Sam Weber's ink class
based off of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'. Depicted
in this piece is Miranda and Caliban. Done in Ink.
I'm greatly honored, and incredibly humbled to
have this piece accepted into The Society of
Illustrator's Student Competition, 'In Show' 2012.
The Transformation: Jekyll & Hyde
Etching Version (With gold rollover)
Piece done in Sam Weber's ink class. Prompt was to
create a garden scene attributed to a specific person.
I chose Robert Frost as my person because I find his
poetry incredibly moving.
This project also involved a competition among the
students and after voting, I ended up winning a copy
of Weber's American Illustration 29.
'Jekyll/Hyde'This piece was more of a sketch than anything else. I recently read 'The Strange
Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' and was inspired to rework the story in relation
to it's metaphors on the human condition. I'm excited to see where it'll take me.
'Mistaken for Strangers'
I started etching last semester in Bruce Waldman's
class. I immediately loved the process and the results
of the prints. This piece is inspired by a song from
The National. Music does inspire a lot of my artwork,
and I find lyrics incredibly visual.
