As I am sure you have noticed, I will literally paint on anything! Shoes, hats, canvas, paper and now wood. I was recently gifted a huge stack of 4×4 wood blocks and I just went to town. I painted the whole stack in less than a week and discovered I love to work on wood. The texture is perfect, it allows me to spread the color easily as well as incorporate words and lots of tight drawings, which for some reason I cannot accomplish on canvas or watercolor paper. In my search to buy more square blocks the other day, I came across these 12×12 circles. I bought four of them, here is a little sneak peak of how they are coming along so far. I still need to update my website links, so these, and most of my other new work is not yet on here. It is my goal by the end of February to have this site completely updated. But for now, please stay in touch through my facebook, etsy and instagram. I update those three almost daily, and have a lot of fun things to show (new work, videos, sales and more wood!). These wooden pieces will be available at the Night Market on February 15th. If you live on Oahu, I hope to see you there!
Aloha Friends! Here is a sneak peak at some recent graphic design work I created for the clothing line, Aloha Sailor. I have worked on designs for them in the past, but these images are fresh off the press and are making their debut this week in Tokyo, at the Japanese International Fashion Fair. To see more photos and designs, check out their website http://alohasailor.com/ Show some love and like their FB page, or follow them on Instagram. https://www.facebook.com/SailKook. Projects like these are some of my favorites!
Super excited to start off the New Year with this article and interview in InsideOut, Oahu. I had the pleasure of meeting with one of their photographers and writers back in November. It is very exciting to see it in print, and to see something I worked so hard on in 2013 be recognized. It just motivates me even more to make 2014 an amazing year.

Aloha Friends, wow, can you believe 2013 is already coming to an end! Where has the time gone? I hope you all have had a great year so far and enjoy the last two days of it. One of my goals for January 2014 was to create a new website for my hats, so you can see them all easier and shop online. Well, thanks to lots of coffee and 24 hour marathon of Breaking Bad, I was able to create an Etsy shop early. I still would like to get an actual website together, and update this one (its been a year! So much new work to show and share with you!). But for now, Etsy is up and running. Please take a look, like, share, shop…enjoy. Find me under YellowBirdBohemia, no spaces in between the words. Thank you <3
