I’ve always been an avid YouTube learner when it comes […]

I’m usually such a clusterfuck when it comes to creating things […]

Images from a teaching workshop I participated in yesterday at the Glassell School of Art along with Chau (from Rckshw).

The batik fabric dying workshop was really fun, also. I’m always kind of a dunce when it comes to layering on colors, especially in printing techniques like this one, […]
