I did not get it together for a lunar new year illustration this year so here is a belated detail shot of an old #linocut block. • Happy year of the Tiger - Wishing you all of the love, joy, and abundance!! ❤️‍🔥🥬🧧🐯🍊♥️✨ • Hot take: The relief block is more interesting than the prints you pull off it most of the time. At least for these detailed single-color prints, anyways. It shows the subtractive process and the texture created in the negative space. ...

In both love and licorice poisoning (it is a real thing) there are irregular heartbeats 💓💗💓 Card illustration for @theochocolate’s 2022 Valentine’s Day collection, inspired by their limited edition salted black licorice chocolate bar and celebrating the plants that give the most polarizing candy it’s signature flavor: Licorice and Anise! Thank you for having me in your amazing artist lineup. 💗💗💗

2021 🌽 time: Thanks for being here and sticking around, I grew and learned a lot 🌟 Most importantly, there are so many awesome people in your community working tenderly, working very hard, and making a real difference in REAL lives - I promise! I had the great privilege of meeting and working with some of them, and I am forever inspired and grateful ❤️❤️❤️

Don’t let anyone convince you there isn’t something amazing happening everyday, even among the many important issues we face or whichever billionaire is going off to space this week.

TL;DR sh*t’s f***ed but we can try to not let it destroy us xx

Please let’s help remind one another of that and help each other find and support those people, to sustain us as we continue the very hard work of cultivating a more just and kind world.

Thanks for keeping me company this year, I love it - let’s keep making cool stuff!

process from my magnolias+magpies mural. I originally drew this because I missed my grandparents in Shanghai, and these birds remind me of where they live, and the time I have spent with them there.

In Asia, these magpies are associated with good fortune and joy in several cultures. It is even a symbol of Korean identity! Magnolias are long-lived flowering trees that are associated with perseverance, I like to think it is also because the ancient genus evolved before bees and were instead pollinated by beetles.
