Last year, I received a copy of the much anticipated book, HūliliVolume 8: Hei: Hawaiian String Figures: Hawaiian Memory Culture and Mnemonic Practice. I produced several illustrations for the article by Kalani Akana, that were published in the volume. Here are some photos of the final product!
I chose to include some of the places I ate at during my trip. My favorites were:
Shake Shack: I think this is my all-time favorite burger. I crave it all the time.... Lexington Candy Shop: Old-fashion smoothies and Coca-Cola! It was so delicious and if you sit at the bar, the owner might show you how its all made! Argo Tea: Did someone say White Frostea Chocolate drink?!?! One of my favorite tea drinks. Takashi: Calf's Brain Cream (in a tube), Testicargot, Soft-Boiled Egg en Cocotte...yum.
If you ever get a chance, definitely check these yummy places out!
"Grand Central Terminal's ceilings are grand!" squeaked the little mouse.
This illustration includes hot dogs from the Sabretto hot dog stands you see at every NY street corner and oysters from the Oyster Bar. Best oysters ever! mmmmm.
07 New York Botanical Garden
It was raining pretty hard when we visited the New York Botanical Garden, so our main stop was at their Holiday Train Show!! Model trains zoom-zooming through miniature sculptures of NY landmarks... made out of plants! Plants! You even get a look into "The Artists Studio" - an insiders look at the process of making the model landmarks.
"The ABC of It is an examination of why children’s books are important: what and how they teach children, and what they reveal about the societies that produced them. Through a dynamic array of objects and activities, the exhibition celebrates the extraordinary richness, artistry, and diversity of children’s literature across cultures and time."
