For the May issue of UNI Air Magazine I wrote an article about street graffiti in Taiwan and featured artists Mr. Ogay and Rainbow Grandpa. I have loved street art for years so am particularly happy that I got to write an article focusing on the interesting twists Taiwan puts on the art form. Josh and I had the opportunity to meet both artists while traveling for Formosa Moon and both of them appear in our book.
It’s so exciting to finally hold it in our hands. Though I will confess it’s a little surreal to see our photo on the cover.
Currently we’re proofreading the book looking for any errors and writing captions for the surprisingly large amount of photos. The book is large too; it numbers 329 pages.
Josh and I recently went up to Maokong to do some proofreading while enjoying coffee and the splendid views.
We had our first interview on James Thomas’ show 4 Seas 1 Family. You can listen to the interview here. The interview was fun to do even with Hazel and Floyd making unscheduled appearances. You can’t stop those two.
Last September I met Vanessa Tseng at the Taiwan International Beauty Show to interview her about her product the Formoonsa Cup. I reviewed the cup on my blog here.
I wrote a feature about Vanessa’s company in the February edition of Topics Magazine. The article is called New Strides in Promoting Women’s Health and also includes a write up about GlaxoSmithKline’s partnership with a Taiwanese company. GSK has developed a new drug to treat lupus and the Taiwanese medical device company has developed a device to allow lupus patients to inject the drug themselves through subcutaneous injection.
In other news Taiwan recently had a rush on toilet paper. Stores across the island sold out and the panic even made international news. I snapped a photo of Josh leaning on some newly stocked shelves and it made Taiwan News’ photo of the day.
There’s some exciting Formosa Moon news on the horizon. Stay tuned!
