Pike Place Market (Ongoing)

As an official Craftsperson at Pike Place Market, I set up my own “storefront” each week among a group of dedicated artisans. My hours for Summer 2019 are Fridays and Sundays from 9:30AM to 5PM. You can find me in the Crafts Market in North Arcade, near Pike Place Flowers and directly across the street from Piroshky Piroshky.

If you're planning a trip to the Market and want to confirm that I'll be there, please message me via Instagram and I'll respond ASAP. Thanks for your support!

ACE Comic Con Seattle 2019

When my friend Johnson Do invited me to table at ACE Comic Con Seattle, I was initially a bit hesitant because I had never heard of it before. That said, the show boasted an impressive roster of celebrity guests that rivalled that of SDCC - Marvel superstars Chris Evans, Josh Brolin, Zoe Saldana, and Jeremy Renner were all schedule to come. More than a little bit starstruck, I decided to spring for a full 8-foot table in the Artist Alley.

… After which, I promptly made an impulse purchase for a Photo-Op with Chris Evans and Josh Brolin. :> Since I had a profitable Spring convention season, I figured I deserved to treat myself to a couple’a Hollywood hunks.

This one-day event dedicated to Steven Universe was SO. MUCH. FUN!! I went in with zero expectations, and was met with decent sales and a giant bouncy gym. A giant indoor bouncy gym during an art show, you inquire? But why, you ask? Why NOT, I say!

So yeah, I spent an estimated 30 minutes hopping around inside the bouncy gym. At one point I dragged in my friend Rhodora to join me in the bouncy gym. I am a professional artist, please take me seriously.

I’m so happy to return to Geek Girl Con for the 5th year in a row! It’s crazy to think that I’ve been selling at conventions since 2014. So much has changed since then, but what remains is that Geek Girl Con is one of my favorite shows for how relaxed and inclusive it always feels. My dear friend Yuuki Jia assisted me at my booth this year, which happened to be located in the best spot on the entire show floor! I felt so lucky and I hope to keep doing this show for years to come!

Jerk Shack: Artist Feature

I’m proud to announce that my artwork is now hanging on the walls of Trey LaMont’s Jerk Shack, home of the best Caribbean food in Seattle! The owner and head chef, Trey LaMont, loves to support artists and happened to like my art. I’ve sampled literally every item on his menu and I heartily recommend all of it. (My personal fave is the Caribbean white fish with plantains - be sure to try it!)

Big thanks to Lost-Boy for helping me hang up my canvas art… this restaurant was actually where we had our first date, so it seemed fitting!

Google AAPI Heritage Month

Thanks to a reference from my friend Xib, I got invited to table at a small arts festival celebrating AAPI Heritage Month at Google Fremont! It was a short and sweet affair, but I admit I was pretty excited to check out the fancy Google campus and eat their free food!

Post show write-up: It was really fun catching up with my neighbours since I knew literally everyone at the show. Xib, Aimee, Hannako, and Kiri were all there - Asian artists represent!

David was my driver/helper/booth babe, because we actually found his car! Funny story time: we spent the better part of the other night walking around Downtown Seattle in search of his car, a brand new Toyota Avalon. He drove down for our date night, we played DDR and had dinner, and then he proceeded to completely forget where he parked his car. I found this to be hilarious and endearing, but he looked really stressed and embarrassed about it all night. So I had to resist the urge to laugh at him until we finally found his car in a Diamond parking lot after walking around aimlessly for nearly 3 hours. (I have a silly “cellphone nickname” for all my friends, and his nickname is now “Lost-Boy.”) Alls well that ends well, and I’d say it was honestly one of the most fun date nights I’ve had.

I was annoyed about one thing at the end of the night, though: I freaking lost at “321 Stars” in DDR. >:C

Seven Lions: Chronicles

I'm very excited to announce that I'll be live painting during the Seven Lions: Chronicles concert, at the WaMu Theater on Saturday, May 12 from 6-11PM! Seven Lions is an amazing musician responsible for some of my favorite work music, so I'm psyched to be a part of this amazing show!

I'll have my trusty iPad Pro + Apple Pencil digital painting set-up hooked up to an HDTV monitor, along with a bunch of my art prints for sale. Feel free to stop by and chat with me about art/music/life!

Post show write-up: When I arrived at the venue, I was very pleased to see fellow game artists Marisa Erven and Jenn Ravenna on the show floor!

Jenn was kind enough to lend me the cable I needed to hook up my iPad Pro to the HDTV monitor (I left mine at home, which incited much panic on my end), and David was there with flowers for moral support. After that, I was set-up and live painting in a matter of minutes, and was able to enjoy the excellent live set by Seven Lions. Thanks to Stan Shkrobor for the invite, I had a blast!

I'm very excited to be returning to the Artist Alley at Sakura-Con 2018 with my good friend Yuuki Jia as my helper! It's been a couple years since I've done this convention, but it remains one of my favorites!

Post show write-up: Holy moly. This was my most profitable show of all time - nearly hit $7K in sales! I don’t know what it was about this year (location, maybe?), but I was super busy all weekend, and I almost sold out of everything! Last month’s ECCC was phenomenal as well, so that makes two back-to-back shows with record-setting profits. Just wow!

I’m so immensely grateful to my friend Yuuki for offering her table to me. I pretty much never get into this show on my own, so I had resigned myself to not doing it this year. So when Yuuki got a table and wasn’t able to go, she gave her spot to me, and brought me a bunch of drinks/snacks during the show! TwT She’s the best!!

I'm excited to be selling my work at the Holiday Mahouto Market, which takes place at Nagomi Tea House in the International District! I'll have all kinds of cute and seasonal art, so stop by to do some holiday shopping.

Post show write-up: As usual, I had no qualms about trusting that the ladies behind Mahouto Market would put together busy and well-run show. Attendance and sales were solid, and I had a fun time seeing friends and doodling MHA fan art with Tom at my table!

I had a blast visiting Burbank for my 3rd time attending the CTN Expo, hanging out with LA friends and chatting with my art idols! This year I applied for the “Raise the Bar Recruiting” program and even scored an interview with Disney Animation, which was such a lovely compliment!

I shared a hotel room with my friend Hannah Viera, a super talented storyboarder/animator from Portland. After CTNX was over, we stayed an extra day in Burbank so we could see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. I had such a blast and I can’t wait to come back!

Post show write-up: This turned out to be my best show of 2017, always good to end the year on a high note! I had a blast meeting fans old and new, and hanging out with all the cool artists I’ve come to know over the years from doing shows like these.

  • Oregon Convention Center (map)

I'm very excited to be returning to Portland for one of my favorite conventions! Come visit me at Booth #1028, where I’ll be vending and sketching at my table!

Post show write-up: I’m so relieved to be back in the convention scene after a rough 2016. Historically speaking, Rose City Comic Con has always been a solid and worthwhile show for me. Although this show yields less than half the sales of Emerald City Comic Con, I love Portland and the drive down is easy and quick. So this show will certainly remain on my list for years to come.

I was very happy to run into the amazing Cooper Dubois, one of the founders of DoubleDown Interactive who gave me my first studio art job! I also got to have dinner with my friends Grace, Hannako, Justin, Brittany, and Garrett on the last day of the show. It’s always so lovely to see everyone!

This was my first (and likely last) time exhibiting at Jet City Comic Show in Tacoma. The show floor was near-empty at times and traffic was super slow, so I don’t think I’ll be returning to this show. Nonetheless, I had a great time catching up with old friends.

I was happy to hang out with Ken, Aimee, and Lindsey over the weekend. Everyone’s booth set-up looked tiptop as usual, now I really want to upgrade my display for next year!

I'm returning for the second year in a row to Bellingham Comic Con, October 22nd at the Ferdale Events Center! I had a wonderful time and great sales at this con last year, so I'm looking forward to debuting a lot of new art. Look for me at Exhibitor's Booth #25!

In the end, sales were about the same as last year (which is not a bad thing) and I’m still happy to recommend this event for any artists looking to get their feet wet in the convention scene. It’s just a really pleasant, low-key affair!

I feel so lucky to have shared a panel with this amazing group of talented ladies!

In the end, sales were slightly up from as last year, and once again I’m pleased to recommend this show to anyone looking to start out as a con vendor. It’s a lot more manageable and low-key than Emerald City Comic Con, that’s for sure!
