064: TYCI Zine #4

"...we explore and celebrate all things femme, providing an open forum for discussion and a place to share ideas and make connections. We write about things which affect us and put together features on art, theatre, music, film, politics, current affairs and most things in between, interviewing interesting women we think you need to know about."



Check out TYCI, a collective run by women!
  
All about empowerment and celebration of women! I had the great opportunity to supply an illustration for the TYCI cover. If you are in Glasglow, Scotland, UK you'll want to make sure to pick up your free zine-Super coooOOOOoool.
 
Also, the wonderful people at TYCI wrote a little something about my work on their website. To see the feature go to http://www.tyci.org.uk/wordpress/?p=999

Thank you to Lauren and the TYCI team who has helped to make this happen! I'm gonna have to go visit Scotland one day and make it to their meetings and events :)

063: ABC's Book

This is so awesome!
 
 
Character Animation artist, Thomas Teraoka!!
 
A amazinnnnng picture of my really good art buddy, Thomas Teraoka, in NY! What's that he's holding? My self-published ABC's book!!! This picture makes me so happy  :) If his name sounds familiar it's because he's part of PBJ. He goes to CALARTS and is amazing. Very talented!!!
 
There are only a couple books (< 10) left! To get your hands on a limited-edition, numbered, and signed ABC's book, order them here at my shop!
 
AND look at these goodies! Little mini watercolor books! Perfection! Thank you Thomas!!! I can't wait to use them :)
 
 
If you own my ABC's book, please take a picture with it or write a testimony and email it to kimie.wong@yahoo.com with subject "ABC's Picture/Testimony".
I would love to share it!

062: Artemisia Gold Vol.1


Happy New Year!
 
For my first post of the year I would like to talk a little bit about a wonderfully magical zine called "Artemisia Gold, Vol. 1" a art and music zine. I received this handmade booklet in the mail earlier this month, and felt it was a sign for great things to come this year!! It is a wonderful compilation of visual work and music! This book was initiated last year, by Liz Layton, a good friend of mine that I met in Iceland. Here's a bit on what you can find in the zine...

 
The visual artists featured include:
Amanda Richardson
and me

The musical mix includes:
A La Carte
Boyfriends
Bradley Bailey
Dana Gillian
Jake, Jake, Jake & the multiple Jet Ski Collisions
Medam Boat
Mikhail Alley
Prince Rama
RKPK
 
Always love the decorated packages and little art prints and goodies from Liz!

Here's a little Q&A with Liz!

Will the zine be available to the public? If so, how can others get their hands on one?
1) yes! The zine is currently available as trade with other zine makers, which I will soon make a blog post about, on http://lizlayton.wordpress.com/. Also, it can be purchased as a prize, on this fundraising site: http://www.indiegogo.com/lizlayton/x/1958319
 
What made you decide to make a zine?
2) I have made zine-type objects in the past, usually just online one, for fun when I was a kid. This first official printed zine I made, is in response to a post on my FAVORITE online magazine (and mag in general), Rookie, on Rookiemag.com. They have everything amazing, to do with art, music, culture, feminism, creative stories, and also informative articles.
 
Are there any new projects you are working on?!
3) I am currently working on my first official music video, with actors, a set, etc, for a band lead by my friend, Bradley Bailey. I also have a joint painting/installation/performance exhibit coming up with my friend Jaime Santos-Prowse, at Nelson's Gallery, here in East Tenn., going on through the month of March. And, I am starting to collect equipment to start an independent film production company.

Don't forget to get your hands on "Artemisia Gold, Vol. 1" by supporting Liz and her film production dreams by going to http://www.indiegogo.com/lizlayton/x/1958319 Please help in any way possible to make her dream a reality!
