I recently submitted a t-shirt design contest for the charity Give2Asia. Japan is still struggling every day to emerge from the recent devastation from the Earthquake and Tsunami. I am now among the five finalists to win, show some support and please vote for my design here. Vote now through May 20th.

I sold one of My Maiko photos I took in Kyoto last year at the event, which you can see below.

Earlier this year, I had the privilege of meeting fashion designer Elisa Palomino. She had previously designed for fashion houses such John Galliano, Cavalli, Dior, and Diane Von Furstenberg. After seeing her extraordinary debut collection, I was inspired to make a short film. Over the past few months, I have been compiling footage of her building the second collection after launching her own label in February with her husband, Tristan Von Christann. My approach to this short documentary was to emphasize the craft of the collection itself. This video focuses on a few key pieces of her Spring 2011 collection, and an inside look at Elisa’s design process. See Elisa’s entire collection here.

One of the the appeals of drawing is it can be simply an enjoyable, tangible thing with immediate results. So I have this preoccupation with Japanese fashion magazines, and find myself basing many sketches off the images that stand out to me. Sometimes these will evolve into more refined drawings or paintings, or just remain the way they are.
