upcoming events, shows, workshops, and other happenings

Happy new year! Kicking it off to announce that I’ve been selected by Urban Sketchers to teach workshops at the upcoming USK Symposium in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in July 2019!

I’ll be teaching “Dry Air: Drawing Atmospheric Perspective in Dry Media”(more info in this PDF - scroll to page 24) We’ll learn about creating depth by playing within the principles of atmospheric perspective and mixing drawing tools in dynamic ways. You can sign up once ticket sales open February 2 (they sell out FAST). 

I’ll also be teaching this workshop in Seattle through the local USK chapter sometime around the middle of the year. 

Based on the two symposiums I’ve attended so far, in Chicago and Taichung City, this event is totally worth the travel and ticket — urban sketchers from literally all over the world converge on a city for a week and draw the heck out of it. It truly feels like a global community and I’m so proud and excited to be a part of this event. Looking forward to meeting my students and other attendees, as well as to explore Amsterdam for the first time.

I recently installed some Japan paintings in Jewel Box Cafe by Northgate in Seattle. This establishment’s good reputation is well-deserved - the space is super cozy, the staff friendly, and the house special hits the spot (it’s like a Vietnamese coffee w/ the texture of a cappucino...I love it). In February, I’ll be moving more work into the main space. Stop by for a coffee if you’re in the neighborhood.

Finally, my small show of paintings at the Downtown Seattle Association HQ, of the I-5 highway in Seattle, is coming down in a few weeks. January 30 is the last day! Take the elevator up to their office on the 9th to see my work in their lobby.

Some other EVEN BIGGER news happened recently, but I’m not sure I can share it yet. I’ll leave you with a couple tantalizing sneak peeks:
