Tiny Seeds is Here!!

Tiny Seeds is a collection of prayers and writings from the Baha’i Faith that I illustrated!!  I designed it with the hope that it would inspire a young audience to engage the message of unity that is at the core of the Baha’i writings.  Tiny Seeds includes quotes that champion the oneness of humanity and other universal spiritual themes, making it a great gift for children of all faith backgrounds.

You can learn more about the book and see pics of it at my website here.

You can ORDER the book at my website and also at my etsy site!!

Kids Love Tiny Seeds!

My Art at Sanctuary!

I am happy to announce that my prints, greeting cards, and jewelry racks are now for sale at Sanctuary, a home bath and garden store in Austin Tx!  I had heard about Sanctuary shortly after I moved to Austin but it took me while to get there; it is located quite far from where I live, on Bee Caves road in the southwest part of Austin.  When I finally made it there, I fell in love.  This store is soooo absolutely cute.  They have a wonderful selection of work from local artists too– what better reason to shop there!

Craftriot!!

This past weekend I had a booth at the Etsy Austin Craftriot!  It was a really successful event and I met a ton of interesting and cool people there.  I think these kinds of events are sooo much better than holiday shopping at the mall or in regular stores–you get to meet the creative people behind the products and also support the local economy.  Even though box stores like Target sometimes have comparable items  like cool graphic tees or well designed jewelry, I would much rather buy that stuff from a local artist who is following their dream by founding their own business.  Plus there is always a ton of stuff that you would never find in most stores anyway.   I wish I took more pics of some of the outstanding booths I saw but I did at least catch one of Baby Bolt’s booth (“Baby Bolt: Striking Kids Wear”–so clever!) who has the cutest and most badass clothes for kids:

I also really enjoyed meeting Tara from Fifty Acorns,  Jasmine from the Jasmine Gallery, and many other vendors who I got to chat with during the event!

Art Opening at Thunderbird Cafe!

Thanks to everyone who came through my art opening this past Saturday night at the Thunderbird cafe in Austin, Texas!  I had a great time and was so psyched to see all the wonderful faces who showed up to check out my new collection!  Also a special shout out to DJ Lo Dogz, who kept the party going with his dope musical selection.  If you missed out, you can see some of my new work posted on my website here!

Here are a few pics of the event.  My art will be up for the entire month of October so if you are in the area, drop by!

Me and my biggest fan

Thanks for coming, ya'll!

Some of the kids from 02 Youth showed up--you guys rule!

Mad love to all the pregnant ladies and moms who were able to make it out of the house...I know how hard it is!

Here's hoping a little art will make the studying a bit more bearable...

Working up a Bhangra Sweat

I modified my elephants and incorporated them into this custom T-shirt design for my friend’s pre-wedding 5K.  I know what you’re thinking: who asks their friends to run a 5K as part of their wedding festivities?  I mean please, their wedding party could at least have run a 10K!! When I got married, I had a pre-wedding Iron Man.  I swear, some people are so lazy!

Congrats Ayesha and Shariq!

 

02 Youth Represent!

For the past few months, me and a small group of friends have been facilitating the “02 Youth Group.”  A group of pre-teens and teens come faithfully to my friend Mandi’s house every Sunday, and we do different activities with them each week.  You can learn more about the youth and what we do at the 02 Youth blog HERE!!  This past weekend we had a fundraiser where we sold some crafts that the youth had made at a local farmers market.  It was a total blast and their hard work paid off–they raised over $100 for an elementary school in Uganda sponsored by True Action!
