  • Major Arcana Tarot Set


    For the past month, I’ve been secretly collaborating on creating a major arcana tarot set with my student, Thomas Hewitt. Here’s our little blurb about the deck.

    The Bolas Invocation Major Arcana Tarot set is the collaborative project of J. Sayuri and Thomas Hewitt. Thomas is a 13-year-old Berkeley, CA native who balances life between eighth grade, electronic music making, and his love for Magic The Gathering. J. Sayuri is Thomas’ friend and art teacher who is an Oakland-based illustrator and comic book artist. This deck is inspired by the artwork of Magic The Gathering’s Amonkhet Invocation series and the classic Radiant Rider Waite Deck.

    And here’s our artwork. We’ve been working really hard to create a Major Arcana deck that special to both of us!

  • Psychedelic Commercial for Psychedelic Quest


    I made Psychedelic Quest and Other Hallucinogenic Journeys about a year ago. Yesterday, I was hanging out with my dear friend and fellow hapa artist lady, Marge Kalhor and she whipped out her handy dandy green screen while we were watching Twilight (excellent movie).

    We made this sweet commercial for Psychedelic Quest, which Margie did a great job of editing together really quick.

  • San Francisco Zine Fest 2017

    I am happy as a clam over here in my studio, feeling that freaky summer wind on my bod, AND excited to announce that I will be tabling at SFZF on Sunday, September 3! Come and join me, Come Find Out, and 200+ other artists, writers, zinesters, freaks, and geeks at the 16th annual SF Zine Fest at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park.

    2017 San Francisco Zine and Alternative Book Fest
    In addition to this event being FREE and an excellent way to support the alternative Bay Area art community, here are an additional 3 reasons why you should go to SF Zine Fest this year:

      I will be (fingers crossed) debuting / selling / talking up my beautiful and freshly printed first edition copy of Ritual, a collaborative / illustrative / instructional handbook for alternative forms of healing. This two-color risograph printed art book will include rituals to increase and hone your personal and communal magic. Some highlights of Ritual include: alpha wolf prayer, acupressure instructions to banish the patriarchy, and sleepy time cannabis tincture recipes.

    I plan on selling these ziney babies for $14, but friends get homie dealzzz. Love you. Come and get it. Sizzlin’ hot off the press!!

    Silly me, I always forget the application deadline SFZF, but Come Find Out does not! Come Find Out is the zine collaboration between two Oakland lasses, Anjelica Colliard and Krusty Wheatfield. Both of them will be off performing godly deeds around the world and will not be able to make it to SFZF.  I’ve been a longtime comic contributor to this Oakland zine collaboration, so lucky me! They asked me to be there in their stead <3 <3 <3

    In addition to a tasty array of zines, comics, and art books, I will display new jewelry /accessories / prints. Stop by the Come Find Out table to get dinosaur ear dangles and grape earrings, sexy babe and sexy brain prints, and celebrity glitter buttons.

    We do more than zines, folks! Come and get your sweetie something nice. Come and visit.

    Again, the 2017 16th annual San Francisco Zine Fest is on September 3rd from 11AM to 6PM at the San Francisco County Fair Building. Come and support alternative book makers and artists. You can see all my accessories on TinyPinkShoe and my brain prints on InnerStellarArt <3
