Happy one year anniversary to SHY STUDIO, which my studio-mates, John Hendrix (illustrator, art director), Katie Yamasaki (muralist, art teacher) and I started when we finished grad school. “SHY” is named after first letters of our last names.

Also, I just moved back to Upper West Side in Manhattan from Greenpoint, Brooklyn where I lived for past 3 years. Although it was a bit sad to leave my memories behind with 99 Sutton St. loft, May was a month of new begginings.
