I’ll be signing at booth #3017 all weekend until the end of the how on Sunday Nov 24. Come find me for new art prints, and I’ll sign ’em for ya! You can pick up my DCon exclusive 11×14″ Fayette limited edition fine art print here at the show, there’s only 50 pieces, and once they’re sold out, they won’t be remade!

Also available is my limited edition Ghibli Gals 16×20″ print with glitter embellishments! You can collect one at booth#3017.

Toys toys toys! I’ve created a collection of hand-painted and customized toys especially for DCon booth#3017. I sculpted and modified some of my favorite Kathie Olivas Wandering Misfits and Janky figures to bring my inner rainbow out through the platforms.

It’s extremely rare for me to make custom toys, so don’t miss out on the chance to pick up an original from booth#3017!

San Diego Comic Con 2019!!

I am so unbelievably excited you guys! Words cannot describe… SAN DIEGO COMIC CON BABY! It’s just over a week away – July 17th-21st – and it’s the 50th Anniversary of the show! Can you believe it?! Because I can’t! And I’ve been going almost half the life of the show – 22 years! And because the show has been so good to me – and you the fans have always been SO amazing – I have some great gifties in store for the show!

You can find me at the same booth as always: BOOTH #4723!! I made some handy maps for ya since the con centre so vast.

I’ve got brand-new clothing designs, OAK jewelry, original paintings, new pins, OAK totes, pop culture bees, my Pop Manga Drawing, The Zodiac art book, zodiac art prints, zodiac bees, some really awesome SDCC 2019 Exclusives, and so much more!! Absolutely everything will be available at my booth #4723.

Exclusives first!! I’m so excited for all of these – you have no idea. First up: my Stan Lee commemorative SDCC® Officially Licensed – SDCC 2019 Limited Edition 16×20 foil stamp print! I call him “Stan Bee”.

He is coloured by the talented Lime Town Studios and there will only be 50 of him available. So come early!

Lets keep the cute bee theme going and talk about my SDCC® officially licensed – SDCC 2019 Exclusive Limited Edition Pins! Say hello to “George Blueney” – he’s adorable, sparkly, and limited to 100 pieces.

You all should know my love of Sailor Moon by now. And if you don’t – well you will soon. I decided this year for SDCC I would bring my love of bees and my all time favourite OTP (one-true-pairing) Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion together! So here they are: my SDCC® officially licensed – SDCC 2019 Exclusive Limited Edition “Prince and Moon” pin set. This couple is limited to 100 set pieces. So make sure not to miss out!

Next up are my SDCC® officially licensed – SDCC 2019 Exclusive Limited Edition Kimonos! And you guessed it – I’ve got more Sailor Moon for you! “Moonflower” will be an SDCC Exclusive Limited Edition Kimono of 70 pieces! She’s a shorter kimono than the one I released previously on my Etsy shop, but she’s sporty and fun! She’s made of feather fabric that’s very breathable so you’ll be able to beat the California heat!

My last exclusive is my Leo kimono. My zodiac painting “Leo” will be an SDCC Exclusive Limited Edition kimono of 100 pieces! She’s made of gorgeous chiffon and is so breezy and elegant! All my kimonos are made by EcoDigiTec in BC, Canada.

If you like my zodiac – get ready! You’ll be able to get my Zodiac Bees – the Buzziacs – for the first time ever at a convention at SDCC 2019!

They will be available as both mini prints (in very limited quantities) and sticker sheet sets: you get all the signs as cute little weather-proof vinyl stickers.

Next on the zodiac: my newest art book The Zodiac will be available, along with prints of ALL my zodiac ladies!

You can get the book which collects all 12 of my girls from my Zodiac show at the Haven Gallery as well as 12 pieces from Travis Louie’s “Animals That I’ve Known” show. And I’d love to sign any of my prints or books for you lovelies – at no charge!

And last – but not least on the zodiac train – my Aquarius purse!

She is limited to 25 pieces. Made of neoprene – scuba material – so she’s weather resistant. And she’s cruelty free! Vegan leather. No animals hurt here baby! These purses are super spacious and machine washable. So they are an everyday kind of purse.

Are you all still with me? I hope so! Because I’ve still got more for you!

My Aria busts from APPortfolio are making an appearance. But there will only be three of them at the show – so make sure to come early so you don’t miss out.

I’ll have a handful of one-of a kind handmade jewelry: necklaces, brooches and keychains.

As well as original paintings, one-of-a-kind drawings, giveaways, mystery bundles and oodles more!

I can’t wait to see all your smiling faces! So stop by to say hi, snatch up my exclusives and limited editions before they are gone, get a picture or an autograph – I’m here for you!

See you all July 17th – 21st at Booth #4723 at the San Diego convention centre!

My first ever kimonos are making their online debut for my June Bug Etsy release.

I’m all about the environment and supporting local businesses – so this was a perfect fit!

I’ve got brand new original art coming your way too! But there are only a few, so make sure you set your alarms so you don’t miss out on one of these adorable fuzzbutt paintings!

Along with original art, there will be new handmade one-of-a-kind jewelry and these June Bug Release rainbow bee hard enamel pins!

Last – but definitely not least – are my Zodiac bees! The Buzziac bees will be available for the first time as both mini prints and as stickers!

My June Bug Release will be the first time these little fuzzbutts are available since my Zodiac show at the Haven Gallery in May! Get your sign, or a loved one’s sign, as a mini print or get all of the cuties on my “Fire & Water” and “Earth & Air” Buzziac sticker sheets.

And last – but certainly not least – brand new one-of-a-kind handmade necklaces! And they’re in some funky new designs!

Zodiac Installed at Haven Gallery

My Zodiac solo collection is all installed at Haven Gallery in New York and ready for opening reception tonight 6-8PM EST! I’m here at Haven Gallery in attendance for reception and looking forward to meeting everyone at opening night. You can preview my collection online here and email info@havenartgallery.com for online inquiries to original artworks. Prints are available now online too on my Custom Print Shop and on Etsy.

Zodiac Exhibition Opens May 11 at Haven Gallery

I’m so pleased to get to share with you all my next solo collection I’m creating for Haven Art Gallery, opening May 11th.  Preview the collection online here. The Zodiac has always been something dear to my heart and a way of connecting with my family and others around me. In the Zodiac, there are 12 signs. Each sign has its specific qualities, personalities and characteristics that tell how they will interact with the world around them, be it people or life itself.

We can, as humans, connect with the stars themselves through the zodiac. Astrology determines how these constellations relate to human activity and connect us with celestial phenomena. Each sign represents specific characteristics of behaviour and personality traits that dictate the roles that we play in the world. Their archetypal nature helps to give us an understanding of a sense of purpose in the universe.

When painting the Zodiac, I wanted to create images that blended my knowledge and love of the star signs with what each sign’s traits mean to me personally through my experiences. We all are unique, yet when we look at the horoscope we can identify similar traits in others that bring us together. The zodiac tethers people together in a mystical way.

I’ll be travelling to Haven Art Gallery to attend opening reception May 11th for the debut of my Zodiac solo exhibition collection. I hope to see some of you at opening reception 6-8pm at Haven Gallery! Please inquire original artworks for your collection by emailing info@havenartgallery.com and Preview the collection here.

Prints of my Zodiac collection are launching on my Custom Print shop here on May 11th!

New Painting for Dorothy Circus Gallery Mother & Child Exhibition

This is my newest painting “Gaia” I created for Dorothy Circus Gallery’s Mother & Child exhibition opening in London April 13th. Motherhood to me means many things , the love for my mother who carried me into this world and gave me life, the connectivity of women around the world, growing life within and bringing it into the world. But what I wanted to paint was Mother Nature the first and true mothe of the Earth. “Gaia” creates all life on earth, she protects and nurtures us with her body. She gives us a moment on this earth that begins and ends but is filled with beauty and possibilities. So I would like to honor the Mother of our Earth with this portrait of her.

You can inquire adding this original oil painting to your collection by emailing info@dorothycircusgallery.uk or add a print of her to your collection from my custom print shop here.

New Painting for Femme Exhibition Juztapoz Magazine and Spoke Art

I’m excited to announce my newest painting is a contribution to “Femme” curated by Spoke Art and Juxtapoz Projects at Mana Contemporary. The exhibition is a followup to their successful and thought-provoking NSFW show about female identity and sexuality in art. My new oil painting, “Boobees”, is my creative response to the questions of what it means to be a female artist, or to explore female sexuality in art.

FEMME will open at Juxtapoz Projects, March 1st, from 6—10pm, at Mana Contemporay, 888 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, New Jersey. If you’re in the area, definitely check out all the amazing artwork from 40 contributing artists! For original artwork purchase inquiries email sf@spoke-art.com
