A painting for my cousin. It's a Barbados landscape. The donkey cart wasn't in the photo reference, so I had to imagine how it would look, so the perspective is off a little. The dog in the back of the cart is a painting of her dog who passed away last year. She really loved the painting.

Mask!


A mask I made for a literature class I was taking. It was done very quickly, but I still like how it came out, plus it's fun to play with!

Scarecrow!

Here is my scarecrow puppet again. A close up this time of him using his special abilities to run on the wall.lol

Creatures

These were done on 5"x7" wood. They were just for fun. I think I'll do some more some day!

Mouse! and Nog again

This one is supposed to be Frank Sinatra as a hopping mouse. I chose the hopping mouse because they have these long tails with fuzzy ends that are so cute!
Here is a photo of my marionette Nog! and an illustration from my story The Courage of Thor in the background. I hope to make the other characters from the story some day as well. ^^

School of Visual Arts- Fresh Meat 2009

Aram and Jiyoon both bought a copy of my book!
This is my work, and my friend Jungyeon's work on the right.

So I went to Fresh Meat for the first time this year. I had a table with my friends Shannon and Jungyeon! It was a lot of fun. I worked on a story called 'The Courage of Thor' for porfolio class, and my friend Shannon helped me to put it together into a book. So I made many copies, and sold them at Fresh Meat! woo!

Scarecrow Rod Puppet

Ok, so I realise I've been a bad blogger, because I have not been posting things! I've just been so busy I suppose. But from now on, I will try to update as often as I can!

This is a little video I made of my rod puppet. I actually made the puppet based on the scarecrow illustrations I posted a while back.
