Crazy 4 Cult: Say Hi to the Bad Guy

A big thanks to everyone who stopped by at APE!  It was a pleasure getting to meet so many people!

Up next for me is the Gallery 1988 opening for their upcoming exhibit, Crazy 4 Cult: Say Hi to the Bad Guys.

Rarely do you find Asian women in cinema and even more rarely are they such bad-asses.  So for my piece, I decided to focus on O-Ren Ishii from Kill Bill.  O-Ren's sequence has that amazing graphic novel-like background story so I tried to keep my piece graphic as well.  I played with the shape of the mat so it felt like the katana she uses.  I also splattered red watercolor over the background to mimic the abundance of blood throughout the film.  Needless to say my workspace was covered with red paint and it looked like I cut off a finger when I was finished.   Fun times!

If you get a chance, be sure to check out the show opening October 18, 2013 from 7-10pm at Gallery1988 (West).

Jackie Huang: Dreaming with Paper (Volume 1)

I'm thrilled to present my first self-published book!

 'Jackie Huang: Dreaming with Paper (Volume 1)" is a small 7"x7" square book with 48 pages in full color showcasing a collection of my paper artwork. It also includes some process sketches and some text explaining my inspirations for my art. 

As a bonus, the first 50 people to purchase a copy of my book will receive a free limited edition book plate. These hand-made 4"x6" die cut plates feature a red cardinal bird birched amongst white branches on a grey background. Available only for a limited time.  *Note: each bird is individually hand colored so variations from photo will occur.

The books will be available at conventions and my Etsy store until they sell out.  So stop by one of my upcoming events or check it out on my Etsy store!
