Creative Packaging: Mandarin oranges have always had a symbolic presence during Chinese New Year. Phonetically, they mean ‘gold’, and since 2011 was the Year of the Rabbit, the oranges were packaged into a shape that looked like carrots – to signify a golden harvest for the year. These were given to existing and potential clients to wish them a successful and profitable Year of the Rabbit.
Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.
