Big mahalos to everyone that came by our booth for the Made in Hawaii festival! We showed off a couple new items, had a rad sticker contest and gave out some freebies. See you next year!
In August I had the awesome opportunity to give to the Joyful Heart Foundation, an organization whose commitment is to end domestic violence and sexual assault. It's a great organization founded by Mariska Hargitay (of Law & Order fame). You can learn more about their work here, and watch their "NO MORE" public service announcement here. We agreed the best way for me to contribute was to create a print commemorating their 10th anniversary celebration here in Hawaii. Their theme for the event was "Nā mele mau a mau" or "My stories; my work go on forever and ever." stressing the importance of a lifelong path to healing from trauma and abuse. I was stoked with how the final print turned out. It features a trio of women hand in hand symbolizing strength and an unbreakable bond. Big mahalo to the Joyful Heart Foundation for all that they do and embracing my creative vision for the piece. The print is available in 12 x 18 at Red Pineapple in Honolulu. Say "Aloha" to Nalani for me! Here are Mariska and Nalani posing with the final print. The print is sized at 20 x 30 and printed on textured bamboo paper. Check it out in my portfolio.
The Made in Hawaii Festival was a big success last month. Thanks to everyone that came by our booth! It was a great time and we look forward to seeing you next year. We offered a discount for those of you that told us a Hawaiian folklore story! Repurposed drawers from re-use Hawaii!
Come on out to Waikiki for an evening of art and fun! June 21st 6-9pm I'll be having a gallery show at the new Greenroom Hawaii (located inside the Sheraton Waikiki). See you there!
