July was a big transition month for SHY Studio. We had to say good-bye to “H of SHY” John Hendrix, and said hello to Marcos Chin. We had also moved, well, just on the same floor of the same building. But we will be keeping the name “SHY Studio”, John!Portland Mercury and its’ sister magazine The Stranger of Seattle had a big Japan issues (july 28 issue), and they selected my personal piece (originally created for Semi Permanent Design Conference in Australia) to be on the cover. Please pick them up if you are in the area.
