Black and White Starts the Year Right

Posted in artwork, dendoo news by dendoo on February 28, 2011

Late last year I had the luck to showcase some of my work in a gallery in Harajuku.  It’s a lot less fancy then it sounds.  It was really a learning experience more than anything but of course I need to share some of the pieces I did for that day.  My theme was rabbits/bunnies in honor of the (then) upcoming new year and the Year of the Hare.

My ladies were saucy and steamy and I loved drawing every single one of them.  I have leftovers so I’m going to think of creative ways to get rid of them but in the meantime enjoy a few of the pics from that day!

This nerdy chick is one of my favs from the bunch.  First time I drew a gap toothed beauty.  There shall be more.

Also real quick, I’m off the break.   Moving to Japan and the craziness of 2010 REALLY has corrupted my focus and drive.  I’m trying desperately to get back into my grove and doing these pieces really got me back into the mood for art.  March will be madness with new pieces galore, restructering and just a general wake up from the dendooverse.  Gotta love it.

Here’s to gap toothed babes, much love!!! dendoo

dendoo is back

Hello world!

I am finally back after an extended break.  As everyone knows I moved to Japan and it’s been a crazy emotional rollercoaster.  Moving to another country is difficult but add not speaking the language plus huge cultural gaps and life will surely get interesting.

I’m starting to scope out the art scene here and making a few contacts as I go along.  My job keeps me really busy.  In fact I was supposed to publish this post a few days ago but life overtook me.

Hopefully I can reserve enough energy in the evenings to do what I must and push dendoo along.

So what news do I have:

  • My zazzle shop has been getting a lot of buzz.  There’s nothing new in it but some of my tried and true designs are available in t-shirts, skateboards, cards and much more.  Check the store out and see if any calls your name.
  • Expect new items in the zazzle store by the end of the month, just in time for the holidays.  I’m sure there will be some discounts as well so start saving your yen…er…dollars!  lol.
  • I have a few secret projects so expect big announcements within in the next few weeks.
  • On the local scene I’m looking selling at this really awesome art gallery in Harajuku.  I was shooting for next month but we’ll see.  I have so many things going on it’s really hard to make new artwork.
  • And redbubble is offering a lot more merchandise now so I will be revamping my redbubble store and selling on select items through them.  Expect a lot from dendoo + redubble for the start of the holiday season/new year.

That’s a lot but I’m trying really hard to push myself.  If there are certain products that you want to see me tackle leave a comment or send me an email.

Looking to start a new project?  Let’s see what we can create.

This is dendoo signing out and trying not to fall asleep! much, much, much love…dendoo

Another 31 Girls, Another 31 Days

Hello everyone!

A couple posts back I asked if you could handle 31 girls in 31 days.  Some of you could and some of you just couldn’t take 31 beauties crammed into your peepholes like that.  Well brace yourself because this last edition of 31 in 31 was by far the most spectacular showing (in my very humble opinion).

The last theme was “Out of this World” and I think we artists outdid ourselves.  Everything was truly out of this world.

Some of the standouts for me were:  Girl Eleven, Girl Eight, Girl three, Girl thirty and Girl twenty-one.  Of course I was feeling my girl as well but you know that!

I think there will be one more edition of 31 Girls in 31 Days as was hinted by the creator Ms. Vestque so we will just have to wait and see what delicious theme she comes up with…

Until then I beseech you to make kissy faces at the gorgeous girls and why not visit past ladies from the series as well?  They need love too.  That is – if you can handle it!

Much love, dendoo

31 Girls in 31 Days

Posted in artwork, dendoo art, dendoo news by dendoo on June 17, 2010

So tell me – could you handle 31 girls in 31 days?

Last month I was part of a project called ’31 Girls in 31 Days’.  If this is making you feel a lil deja vu that’s because there was a similar project in March with the same name hosted by the same person, the wonderful VESTQUE!

She, I and basically everyone who took part had SO much fun that she decided to host part deux of the project and this time there was a twist: poison.  Yep, under the theme poison artists from all over the world submitted to the project.  I had a blast creating this piece for the project and I think it was even better the second time around because of the theme.  It was more tied together.

So check out 31 females over 31 days…if you think you can handle it.  Be on the look out for my poisoned beauty in the line up!

And don’t fret, if you find that you have an appetite for 31 beauties there will be a July edition.  I’m starting to think this is going to be a regular project and I for one am very excited.  I’ll have an announcement via my blog when July starts to roll in.

Much poisoned love, dendoo

This morning I was just clickin around on the web and I came across this awesome project based in England.  These guys are giving artists a voice to be a voice for the people.  We’re expressing how we feel about government, politics, etc.

The idea behind my submission is we expect the government to fulfill their promises.  We follow them because they shower us with what we want to hear.  We’ll follow them in the hopes that they’ll fulfill, that they’ll love us.
Maybe it’s time we loved ourselves.

This will be plasterd all over London.

dendoo + the ark project = yay!!!

Posted in artwork, dendoo art, dendoo news by dendoo on April 7, 2010

About a year ago I sent in a little image to be included in a book called The Art Project.  Well, thanks to the wonderful postal service, I finally got my copy of the book and I can finally blog about it!

My Blue Marlin is swimming along with other fish and other animals in this book.  Over 200 hundred artists drew animals from their home or region to be rescued and viewed in this gorgeous book.

I picked the Marlin because I’ve always thought it was beautiful and it’s blue, a colour I was in love with when I was small.  Seriously I thought I’d have a blue wedding dress folks.

This book was published by IdN and imagine my surprise when I woke up to find an email telling me I have a lil feature on my piece which can be viewed here.  (If the link isn’t working check back later.  For some reason the site is down now.)

Most of all I’m proud that it gives a shout out to the beautiful TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS!   For all the grief that one has to endure living here sometimes, it’s a really cool place and I LOVE giving a shout out!

You can find out more about purchasing the book via the link above.

Much fishy love, dendoo!

31 girls in 31 days

Posted in dendoo news by dendoo on February 25, 2010

31 girls
31 days

my friend vestque is trying to do something amazingly awesome.  it’s called 31 girls in 31 days.  it sounds mega kinky ( i mean come on…wouldn’t it be great to romp with a different girl for a month?) but it’s actually a creative project meant to stimulate your mind….woo!

simply put you’ll be assigned a day at the beginning of the month, 1 through 31, and you’ll create artwork for that specific day.  i’ve invited some “non artsy” types to be a part of this because i think it would be awesome to encourage females who don’t draw to push their creative bones.

so if you’re interested click here to let vestque know (just fill out the form so she can get you listed for a day and send you all the hardcore information – after all this is her project so she’d know the deets better than i would).

in the end all the artwork will be collected on her website and she’s planning to do a youtube video.  it’ll be great exposure, a chance to get creative and hey! if you want to get kinky with it you can def draw a lil boobage on your day.

psssst my creations will be kinky!
