Oh hello,

I didn't see you there.
It's been a long time since we last spoke... How are you?

A few months back, I had the good fortune to be asked to take part in a show at Compound Gallery in Portland, Oregon. I have the pleasure of showcasing my work along with two fellow illustrators Martin Hsu and Jade Klara. Here are two of the six pieces that I've contributed to the show:

mixed media on watercolour paper. 28.5 cm x 28.5 cm
'Burial at Sea'
Paper clay and spray paint. 16.5 cm x 22 cm x 10 cm (W x H x D)

Many thanks to Matt and Katsu for having me take part!
The show is titled 'Illustrious' and will be running all of October, so if you're in the Portland area, please stop by and have a look! Also if you happen to take some photos, feel free to send some my way!

Thanks for stopping by!

October 7, 2010 - October 31, 2010
Opening Reception: Oct 7th, 7pm - 11pm
Compound Gallery
107 NW 5th Avenue
Portland, OR 97209

**Note: Also if you're interested in getting a preview of the work from the show, please feel free to get in touch with either Matt or myself.

this feels a bit like a confessional (I wouldn't know for sure), I'm a hoarder. A hoarder of experience, expression and moments. Moments and memories that can either be shared with others or held onto, for myself. It's the sort of thing that I wonder about, I see others sharing their experience and stories so freely that it seems like lessons learned- for anyone whose listening; Whether the sharing of knowledge, or the outpouring of thought is what fuels their desire and drive; For me I hold self-confidence and inspiration close to my chest, I feel like I need it. I can't openly release stories and experience to the ether, it would shatter like the black to light. or bats to bright. I don't think they can hold together on their own, so I'll hang onto them. a little longer. collecting. handling. holding. till they stick. And stand on their own.

Like the bridge to a song. when the noise falls away. you'll find something unexpected. something. new.

I hoard. I guess. I do, so I can assemble. Eye spy, with my little I.

Sweet Sights

Wow, this weekend totally snuck up on me...I didn't even realize it was the 10th until I checked my google reader and saw Tess' post. This weekend is jam packed with some great openings!
*After reading this, if anyone's feeling particularly generous and has a wicked frequent flyer plan, I would be more than happy to help you get the most out of your miles.

My friends Edwin and Yoskay's show at Roq la Rue gallery will be opening tonight, in Seattle. Here's a preview of their work. As per usual, Edwin and Yosk never cease to amaze.

goodluck guys! Omedetou gozaimasu!


If your looking for something sweet and happen to find yourself on the west coast this weekend, Nucleus will be hosting the follow up to their hugely success Sweet Streets show, with Sweet Street II. (sidebar- every time I read the title i think of Street Fighter II) The charming and xylish Tessar and Yuta have each contributed a few pieces to the show, and posted some previews of the work on their sites, head on over to have a look. The work is looking quite fresh !

And finally back on the east coast, my homeboys at Show & Tell Gallery will be opening a brand new solo show by Dan Bergeron. Some of you who are more "hip" to the streets might know him as Fauxreel. The work is great! I got to see some of the pieces from the show when I visited the gallery last week.

You should go see them. In person. Tonight. At Show and Tell gallery. Dundas and Ossington. Around 7 to 11. Yes I'm telling you what to do. I only want the best for you. Love. Nimit.

Can you draw her...but with no boots?

Hey there,

I just wanted to quickly say thank you to everyone who was able to come by and visit Martha and I at our table for Fan Expo! The long hours were tough, especially when food was so scarce, but it was honestly a dream weekend. It was amazing and humbling to meet long time readers of my blog, and to have the chance to meet and get to know artists whose work has inspired me for years now. I'll have to do a more dedicated post in the next little while with my impressions, anecdotes and costumes! oh my!

I just wanted to say thank you. And see you next year!
