new comic work!

Here are 5 pg comic that I worked on this week. The script was very romantic and had a character that emitted light so I tried to play on light and dark a lot on the pages. This is by far the most elaborated backgrounds and cross hatchings I've done for comic pages. But I enjoyed working on it very much.

(Disclaimer: This script has already been published as a comic with a different artist so I'm putting my comic pages without words. This is just to show my art on my personal blog and websites and not for any commercial uses.)

Tilda Swinton

There's really no one like her in this world. My crush on Tilda Swinton started when I first watched "Orlando" in the early 90's. She has such an odd beauty that I never get sick of watching her films.

new paintings

I'm finally back from the longest vacation since I graduated from college. It was a total bliss to enjoy the beautiful nature of Hawaii for two weeks. I had so much fun snorkeling, hiking, looking at the clearest night sky on Mauna Kea (I saw the galaxies and nebular for the first time with my own eyes!) and just plain lazy sun bating. When I got back, I felt a bit guilty about taking such a long break from making art. I was thinking of painting Hawaiian landscape but it was just too beautiful and immense in my memory that I don't have the guts to recreate it on canvas just yet. Perhaps I would try it in a few month. So I made some paintings from the photos I took from my last trip to Europe, where was also scenic but more malleable in my memory to paint.
