i just want to get this out of the way right now, i am not a professional. nope. so, often times when i email an artist to ask if i may use their work on this here bloggy, i have to rein it in. i have to put on my professional hat as it were. but every now and then, i get a little slap happy. i get over excited and silly about the work i am inquiring about. take for instance my recent email to michael c. hsiung where i told him i wanted to marry his work, i liked it so much. err, it was a slip of the keyboard, an over exertion of an inspired, happy soul some could say. luckily michael was too kind and forgiving, following my email up w/: "that is very sweet of you to say that you'd marry my work. some would find that odd. haha." such a gentleman. so w/ out further ado i give to you a few images of michael's that i just can't stop looking at. michael's clean, super fine lines of mythical beasts, in fact, do indeed make me love them so much i want to marry them. i mean, come on, we all need more mermen and centaurs in our lives. michael has a show coming up at gallery revisted in june. for more info check out his website. prints of michael's can be found through his shop, gallery revisited and our fav little paper planes.
