Late Night Art Session

April 11, 2012

I didn’t know what to expect at the first Late Night Art Session at Paddy’s Coffee House Hosted by &THEM Collective, but I was excited!


&THEM made print outs of my turtles and JToddO’s artwork for people to color and draw on.



There was a DJ filling the air with hip hop music as everyone drew, drank, and talked.


I got to draw on one of the counter displays with a window marker!


My bunny and her good friend worked on their crafting stuff.


I brought my button machine, and helped people make some custom pins!


I made these T-Rex buttons.


Some people that got a hold of the turtle print outs and art supplies crack me up.


I got to see some of my favorite artists in the Bay Area too…like Basic Lee, Nick Trujillo, JP Neang, and Laura Ho!


It was a fun night of meeting new artists and people, and seeing old ones too. It’ll probably happen again, and maybe when it does you can come join us!


Book Drive

September 20, 2011

Hi, I’ll be teaching/drawing turtles at this event this Saturday:

Paddy’s Coffee House, Union City, will hold a book drive/fundraiser for the Starlight. From Monday, September 5th through Saturday, September 24th, there will be Starlight boxes and tables at the coffee house for people to donate books. We would be collecting used and new books. Used books will be taken to Half Price Books, Fremont, to raise funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. New books will be donated to Starlight Hospital Contacts throughout the greater bay area. The entire fundraiser would last 3 weeks, with a closing reception on Saturday, September 24th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

To close out the fundraiser, we will have a reception on Saturday, September 24th from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. There will be a book reading by Jan Pitcher, author and artist of Where do the Stars Go?. She will bring her paintings to display at Paddy’s during the event and do a reading for the children. After the reading, Turtle Wayne will teach the children how to draw turtles… which we will collaborate and make a book of all the drawings.

House Blend

August 23, 2011

House Blend Art Show presented by &THEM at Paddy’s Coffee House was a java of a good time. There are some photos of all the fun on Union City Patch.

It was an entire day of chatting with people, drawing, and passing out turtle pins for me. I got to see printouts of my turtle cup colored by little kids and big kids and big big kids. Jtoddo also had printouts of his art colored by whoever wanted to, and man I must say it’s a strange feeling to see something you drew…posted all over the walls…colored by strangers. Was great to collaborate and hang out with &THEM crew as always and also with the other artists too…JP NeangLaura Ho…and Bryant Sina.

Big turtle thanks to &THEM and Paddy’s for throwing the event and art show! And big turtle thanks to all the people that came out and made me feel like a turtle star!
