The galleria & Project PikaPackageā„¢

So I’ve been thinking about the galleria and the blog, and how can I make it into something that everyone can be involved in.

And I’ve made a decision to do away with paid advertisements by artists/illustrators (unless they personally request for it!). The idea seemed plausible to me at first, but the more I think about it, it doesn’t encapsulate the spirit that I ultimately want pikaland to have.

So don’t fret — for now the galleria will display loads of cool people whose works rock. Thank you to everyone who emailed and submitted their banner for display — you can keep them coming in and I’ll just upload them right here where it will remain until the end of March; and come April, let’s start off with a project, shall we? It’s one I have been thinking of for the longest time, but didn’t have the guts to try.

Once I’ve ironed everything out, I’ll get busy with my emails again. And did I say thank you for coming along for the ride? šŸ˜‰

Chatty Affairs painting; Under the Leafs print

I’m a fan of Jeremiah Ketner’s prints sold in his shop.

The Chicago-based visual artist draws inspiration from Japanese aesthetics, packaging design, magazine ads and urban graffiti and recently put up a few special edition wooden toys painted with acrylic up for sale — you can view the whole collection here.
