Summerland Movie Club













I always enjoy doing pieces for the art shows put on by supahcute and Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. The Summerland Movie Club show was no exception. Here’s the piece I created for this really fun salute to our favorite summer movies. It will be available as a giclee print on archival paper. There will be one framed piece and two matted prints available at the show. All are signed. (Update 07/10/14 – there will be 4 additional matted prints available when the show opens)

The show is also a celebration of four fun years of Leanna Lin’s Wonderland and will feature new works by 100% Soft, Ann Shen, Cameron Garland, Crowded Teeth, Goreilla + Moemoe, Ian Glaubinger, Jerrod Maruyama, Kelley Frisby, Kevin Jay Stanton, Kristen Lau, Rhodora Jacob, Ryan Shaw, and Vanessa Ramirez.

Opening reception is on Saturday, July 12 from 6-10pm. Stay tuned for details! RSVP on the Facebook event page to receive event updates.

Leanna Lin’s Wonderland is located at 5024 Eagle Rock Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041 (323) 550-1332)

A Perfect Summer
















Had a great time kicking off summer at WonderGround Gallery this past weekend. Thank you to everyone who dropped by to say hello. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate those of you who come out to these gallery events. I am always humbled by your kind words about my work and so appreciative of your ongoing support.

Had the great pleasure of signing along side the super talented Whitney Pollett at this event. She was just lovely and her work is terrific. Hope to see her again at one of these events. Make sure to check out the delightful piece she created for WonderGround Gallery. We both missed Pascal Campion who was unable to make the event. His pieces for the gallery are really wonderful. If you are at all familiar with his work, you will no doubt love his tributes to Mulan, Donald Duck and Peter Pan.

As always, huge thanks to the fine folks at WonderGround Gallery. You make every event a pleasure and I thank you for your constant smiles and enthusiasm. I love coming to the gallery for these events and a big part of that is because you’re all so good at what you do.

And in case you missed it on my social media sites, the winners of the Summer Art Giveaway were Tracy Youdal on Facebook and OMGiri (@MicKyaraben) on Twitter. Your prints are on their way! Thank you to everyone who entered. Hope to do it again soon.

WonderGround Gallery is located in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort.

Happy Father’s Day

In honor of Father’s Day weekend, I bring you this tribute to one of the worst dad’s of all time. To all you new dads out there: as long as you don’t kill the mother of your children and chop off your son’s hand before watching him fall to his death, you’re probably doing an ok job. Happy Father’s Day!
