+ About Born Free USA:
Born Free USA is a national animal advocacy nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, contributions to which are tax-deductible. Our mission is to end the suffering of wild animals in captivity, rescue individual animals in need, protect wildlife — including highly endangered species — in their natural habitats, and encourage compassionate conservation globally. Every year, millions of animals suffer in fur farms and circus cages. In our campaigns against such cruelties, we use powerful tools including legislation, public education, litigation, and grassroots networking. We also work actively with media to spread the word about challenges facing animals. Our primary campaign areas currently include animals used in entertainment, captive exotic animals, trapping & fur, and the international wildlife trade.

*You can also donate by bringing blankets, toys, pet treats, etc. to the opening!

Another slow progress.
Drip drip. My bison piece is finally finished for Wild At Heart benefit show next week at @thinkspace_art!

i have to add that the beginning of this piece was so hard, i had to restart a number of times (possibly 8) - but once i got the layout, i am glad that i can say i really loved working on it.
it was super tedious and slow in progress, but still really turned out to be enjoyable.

hope you can make it to the show - it looks amazing from what little i could peek online!

+ ETA : daily du jour posted some pictures from the exhibit which you can enjoy here!

New Prints - coming soon!

Signing new prints (will be in the shop in a few days!)
i have 4 new prints lined up to be added to the shop soon : 2 brand-new prints from 2011 pieces,
and 2 re-prints of old limited editions from 2007.
the reprints are 2 of most requested old prints that have long been sold out at first release,
and i'm re-releasing them in smaller version in open edition, at lower price.

they're all open edition so everyone who places an order will be guaranteed to get a print,
which is why i don't have any specific time or date for the release of these prints.

so please check the shop some time this week for the new prints!

this was a piece started a long while ago (as seen in progress here), and just wrapped up
recently. it's kind of nice if i can get an idea and work really fast and be done, but lately
i've been more inclined to start a piece with a sudden strike of an idea/inspiration, then sit
on it for a while, work on it little by little, and have the piece creep up on me.
i kind of like it - starting something without really having any intentions.
although it does need more planning in different ways, i kind of like having pieces in different
points of progress at all times now.

hope you make it to the show if you're in the bay area - i've seen pieces from other artists in progress, and i sure wish i could be there!
