Tools, work spaces, rough edges. A round-up of a few unshared Instagram posts over the course of the last few weeks.

Her Wildest Dreams, Watercolor, 2014.

It turns out my friends share my wildest dreams which lead to this wonderful commission. This piece is 12x12’ (The last piece I did on whim for myself was 8x8’) on thick watercolor stock paper. It’s a huge pleasure to be supported by my friends.

Added the susuwatari, chu and chibi totoro, :)

p.s. I’m taking the summer off to experiment with painting projects. If you like this sort of thing and want to support, I’m offering a limited edition set (maybe 5 or 10 max) of ‘Wildest Dream’ commissions for a set price of $600 for the original foot by foot watercolor. It doesn’t have to be Totoro – just your childhood dreams realized.

Wildest Dreams, watercolor, 2014.

You CAN even. Whenever I get creatively dysfunc, I can always rely on my neighbor Totoro to remind me why I was inspired to be creative: to immerse others in a magical world the way Totoro’s world still immerses me.

Hooray, photographs in natural light~
And a bonus process gif, since I remembered to take some photos along the way.

Made with Paper; moonlit music. I get genuinely sad sometimes because I know they aren’t real.
