Chaboo near miss Kalina Torino

As I ponder the future for Project Chaboo I realize I missed a lot of people. There are many many brilliant artists out there with great energy. Hopefully for round two I will find them all.  I met illustrator Kalina Torino at the show- a couple months too late, unfortunately. Her work is super cool- check it out!

Awww CUTE!  She tells me her characters are inspired by real people- I think pineapple girl is her. Shes been putting her characters into “suits” that can be hilarious.   Who wears a lobster?  Honestly… come on… haha.  I like the drooping things she has going in her backgrounds.  We discussed perhaps having them laser cut in the future and layering her paintings.  MMMmm lasers…

I love the humor quality in her work. Her very funny personality comes out in her drawings. I envy that actually, furniture is not very funny- at least mine isnt… Id like to find a way to make my work more fun… like me ;P

Here she paints by hand, rather than digital.  Its cool that she does both.  Shes going to paint on some natural edge wood scraps I have from Project Chaboo and Im going to make them move.  Kalina has big time positive enthusiasm, talent, and fun ideas- Im looking forward to tagging along for the ride!  Stay tuned…
