Who is Tanoshiboy?

In the last month a lot has gone on and I'm proud to say a lot is still going on. On August 10th, I participated in my first large showcase, RAWartist's Radiate showcase in Hollywood. I was one of about 40 artists (all from different artistic backgrounds) there that night. It being in Hollywood (a place I only came to party at when I was in my very early 20s) it made me very nervous. Even though I've been doing this for 13 years and have been considered an accomplished designer, I still find it hard to believe that people enjoy looking at my personal work. And for the first time I offered prints of some of my work and people actually bought it and took it home to put on their walls! That's amazing to me!

Part of the show was doing a short interview about who we are and what brought us to the show. It's a short clip, but it'll give you a little background on me. It's a bit embarrassing but I'm going to share it anyway. I was a pretty damn nervous, so forgive my mistakes. 

A little more after the jump



It was a great time and a great show and I have to thank Kaila and everyone else at RAWartists for inviting me to be a part of that night. And also, a huge thank you to friends and family who came long distances to support my crazy antics. See you at the next one!
