Sometimes when I feel stuck in a rut with my illustration and drawings habits, I like to bust out materials I don't typically use.
Watercolor is perfect for getting outside the comfort zone because it tends to have a mind of its own at times. There are many happy accidents that can happen and inspires some fun things.
Especially with my little pumpkin friend overseeing my work!

It's that time of year when I start making miniature crochet candy corns like crazy! I cannot resist their cuteness with this tiny handmade trick or treat bag!
These little guys also have magnets inside of them! A super cute and functional Halloween treat!

One of the kids I nanny asked me to draw a pokemon for them recently and it got me thinking about the old pokemon games I used to play on my gameboy when I was little.
With the Alternative Press Expo fat approaching, I decided to take some time for a little fan art.
The result is some of May favorite OG pokemon in a fan art crossover with superheroes!
This has been so fun!

I've included this sweet little Valentine in my portfolio for a while now and it is still to this day one of my favorites. So for the last SCBWI conference here in San Francsico, I wanted to make a partner piece.

Now that it's September, the holiday season is fast approaching! So it's time to start stock-piling up the critters for the upcoming conventions and holiday Etsy purchases-
To start off the pile up here are some of my oh so popular rainbow octopus magnets!
They're just so happy...

Way back when, in my undergraduate days, I used to be an animation major!
I was rummaging through my external hard-drive and stumbled upon some of my old mini animations, so I think I will share a few here and there throughout the next few months, since they're pretty fun.
I can't post my video here, but here is a still shot of my cute little giraffe. Check out the video loop on my Instagram, Facebook page or Twitter account by clicking to the right:-)

I'm combining my Fan Art-Ria Art here in this post.
It took me a few tries, but I finally managed to come up with a pokeball crochet pattern. I was so pleased that I wanted to draw the adorable Pikachu. Pika is sharing in my delight and my two mediums are combined in this super fun fan art post!
I'm looking forward to having pokeball keychains at the next convention I participate in in October, APE, but I'm also thinking that this could make a great stocking stuffer during the holidays~

I really like the way these drawing lunches with my Ria Art have turned out, so I just have to share!

I'm coming close to the final deadline for the children's book I'm illustrating for Nothing But the Truth Publishing. So I requested time off from the day job so I could work around the clock on these drawings!
I decided to take a road trip to my most favorite location, Sunriver, Oregon. Here in the woods, there are no distractions from my beloved San Francsico and I am free to create all day.
Such a wonderful feeling, and I feel so very blessed to have time like this to create lovely art in such a peaceful place.

Just a reminder that it's Father's Day this year on the summer solstice. So go ahead and celebrate your papa like little Jinky here, or just take a moment to appreciate all the awesome dads in the world.
Jinky couldn't wait for Sunday apparently, so he got started a little early~
