  1. Happy Chinese New Year!

    A new, quick illustration created for the participatory blog Illustration Friday.  The theme of the week was “Mystery”.  I used a photo from my trip up E’Mei Mountain, a sacred Buddhist mountain in Sichuan province.  I wanted to evoke the sense of mystery and delight I felt when we climbed up a steep set of …

  2. Mini Art Reproductions

    One of my watercolor and gouache art reproductions, completed and collaged into a commission for Kvitka Photography.  It was published online and in print in the Art Source Portland 2015 arts guide! A really fun project and a way to study my favorite masters, such as Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithograph print “The Englishman”.  

  3. Title Translations

    I have some continuing translation work for the photography book I mentioned before. Right now I’m helping to translate titles of some photographic works.  Most of them are pretty straightforward, but I am showing those below in order to get help.

The larger prints get exponentially more expensive. www.20×200.com Resting on a Bush Yijun (Pixy) Liao Midwife/ Middle School …

  6. Garfield Park Conservatory

    Went to the Garfield Conservatory today- a free nature park with greenhouses as well as outdoor gardens. I know lots of people won’t look at photos of plants, myself included, but I thought the lighting on these few turned out quite nicely. I’m using a Nikon D50 this week, on loan from my photographer uncle! …

  7. Doug Dubois

    Doug Dubois photographs his family in a memoir-style. All his photographs are extremely narrative, and his book All the Days and Nights unfolds like a story but there are no words or descriptions as to what’s happening. The result is a little eerie, but beautiful and quiet at the same time. His website.
