I got invited to do the Enlighten! One Night of Light show at the Helms Bakery Building in Culver City.
Enlighten! is a group exhibition of table lamps featuring printed shades with artwork by an eclectic roster of over 85 fine artists and illustrators working together to support arts education for children in Los Angeles. Each artist’s lamp design will be sold in a limited edition available for one night only. The lamps can be previewed and pre-ordered on the website at www.enlightenshow.com. The event is free. A portion of all sales will benefit Inner-City Arts, an organization offering opportunities for at-risk children from Los Angeles schools to build artistic self-expression, enhancing their ability to perform both creatively and academically in challenging environments. The lamps are produced by Lamp-In-A- Box in Culver City, California. Enlighten! One Night of Light will take place at Helms Bakery Building, 8723 Washington Blvd., Culver City, California on Saturday, November 21st, 2009 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Free parking provided directly across the street.
here's my design. called Lamp Shopping, which is inspired by the chair shopping painting.

I recently discovered a book called ShanHai Jing (The Classic of Mountains and Seas) is a Chinese classic text that is at least 2,000 years old. It is largely a fabled geographical and cultural account of pre-Qin China as well as a collection of mythology. The Classic narrates episodes of 204 mythical figures, notably the gods Foremost, Fond Care, and Yellow, and goddesses like the fearsome Queen Mother of the West and the doomed Girl Lovely, the nurturing solar and lunar goddesses, and many others unknown outside this text. Here are the three of the ancient Chinese mythical creatures I did for fun. maybe I'll continue to do some more.
