Paint the Void hit me up to paint three utility boxes in the Richmond District! My artwork normally stems from a more serious place (from decolonizing journeys to tackling patriarchal white supremacy 🤪.) This series, however, I'm opening the door to playfulness, nostalgia, and tbh... silliness.
Geary & 19th Ave
ridin the White Rabbit... I mean, the Brown Sea Lion. Oh! And there's also... Hello, Sea Lion and Yan Yan (can't think of something clever for that one lol)
I based the overall box design on Hello Panda boxes with a sea lion twist. I stayed in the realm of primary colors to further add onto the childlike design.
Geary & 20th Ave
Taking advantage of painting a literal box, I imagined what my dream vinyl toy and its casing would look like. Simple daisies and patterns contrasted with big mighty attitude.
Inspired by Osama Tezuka's illustration style.

California Coast Spirits
Do you remember, as a kid, we're asked by all the adults what we want to be when we grow up? Well. There was a time in my life when I thought I would be a zoologist or marine biologist.
I moved a lot growing up but being near the Pacific Ocean has been a constant. This is dedicated to her -- Mama Ocean and some of what makes the California coast special.
