Nothing Compares 2 U

April 21, 2016

I wrote this comic as a reaction to the news of the late Prince’s death. This comic highlights the various memories in my life involving Prince. I am hoping to have this printed as a tiny comic for Chicago Zine Fest. Hope you enjoy.

New relief prints!

April 12, 2016

I recently attended the Southern Graphics Council International Printmaking Conference in Portland, OR, which has me all kinds of inspired about printmaking. Recently I have been working on some new prints that i’d like to share.

Poppies is a two color linocut print of red California Poppies. I created this print out of my love for poppies, and as a part of a larger series of relief prints on flowers and plants.

Nestor // Black Cat, is a two color woodcut reduction print, inspired by the 9 month old kitten who lives at my house, Nestor. I am still relatively new to woodcuts, and I wanted to experiment with some new carving tools I got at SGC from McClain’s Printmaking.

I’m getting a studio//I’m having an online sale for the month of September!

September 01, 2015

sept2015sale

I am finally getting an artist studio space in October! This isn’t going to be cheap, so I’m asking for help to make three months of rent and to clear out space for new work. This will allow me to solely focus on making new work for the rest of 2015. This means new prints, new comics, new patches, new illustrations! Maybe some surprises too.

For the month of September, everything in my online store (fionavocado.storenvy.com) is 20% off!! Just use the code SEPTEMBER2015 at checkout. Sale ends September 30.

Thank you!!
