Here's a mask I made for last night's AIGA SF Fall Gala, Mask Appeal. I've been slightly obsessed with drawing and cutting out petals (if you haven't noticed), so it was only natural that I would do the same for this little project.
Latest diy creations: bracelets! Sam and I had another craft night making these cute bracelets out of strips of lace, twine, and hex nuts. The left hand is yours truly, while the right is modeled by Sam. I love how they turned out, particularly the one made with hex nuts, so I made another for my friend's birthday: this time using amaranth-ish colored hemp cord. The cord brings a nice pop of color and works really well with the brass hex nuts.

Inspired by my buddy Shasta, my friend Sam & I bought a some rolls of Japanese masking tape in Japan Town last week:
Earlier that evening I also bought a new set of mole skin sketch books which I then decorated in minimal fashion with our new tape: Though used sparingly here, I've found a new appreciation for Japanese masking tape and look forward to exploring more ways to use it. I'm also looking forward to getting more ;)
And speaking of sketch books, here are couple of snapshots of me messing around with Sam's awesome Cityscape Stamp Set. I rarely use stamps and often forget how fun and easy they are to work with.
I love the textures of these prints. Seeing these make me miss printmaking and serves as reminder of how I want to get back into it.
