Here and there

So the multitasking goes on! Since my last post, I delivered Frida, and almost making her one year journey around the sun. Time is so elusive. Life keeps on. Now a mother of two rad girls! I keep on being a work in progress through it all; sometimes more backwards than onwards but 'tis is life after all.

Although recently I've managed to get juried into this poster exhibit and I'm pretty stoked to get back fully immersed in this art thing! Here's a rough sketch of the concept I'm working on titled "East Oakland families matter." It's a statement on the housing crisis in Oakland as a result of gentrification; once again displacing many long time residents and natives out of their homes.

Here are some of the work I did in 2014 early 2015. 
I was really into line work and being less tight, more free in the creative process. It was also the result of time constraints (nap time allotments), figuring out how to get it done quickly and executed well.

paloma's world

 So it's been over a year since i've last posted. Time has been my constant foe eversince Paloma's birth. All of a sudden my status quo warped into this new bizzaro world that was unfamiliar, exciting and scary at best.  It's been a whirlwind to say the least...A year assimilating into this new frontier called motherhood! Paloma took shotgun and my art kinda took a backseat, temporarily, but when situations permit, meaning when i'm not exhausted or feeling the blues and brunt of being a mama, I am definitely trying to paint!  I will post some art i've done in the past year momentarily. 

Happy International Women's Day!!!

No rest for the wicked

Managed to finish a few projects while nesting in my pregnancy. 

Lately, I've been wanting to take a break from character drawings, and try to do more intricate, detailed ones. The first two below are homage to my father. I've been a fan of tattoo art and just love to explore vignette compositions.

The way of the artist

To expand the repertoire, I started vending about 3 years ago and joined the world of what's now known as "pop-up". A great way for the indie artist / artisan to get out there face to face with the masses--a form of guerrilla marketing, if you will.
