Work in progress : the devonian

November 6, 2013New art work

Here is a work in progress, the third book in my prehistoric series “The devonian”. The past two books, I’ve been able to start in May and finish in August. But this book has taken me entirely too long as I started in May this year, and I’m still working on it. I’ve just finished … Read More

APE

October 24, 2013News

As I mentioned in my last post, I went to APE two weeks ago. This trip represented a lot of firsts for me: first time showing my work outside of New York, but more importantly it was the first time traveling by myself to a place I’d never been before. I was extremely scared about … Read More

Going to the Alternative Press Expo!

October 10, 2013News

I haven’t updated my blog in a while. Yours truly has been very busy working freelance jobs. Truth be told, since I left my cushy yet stressful corporate job three years ago, I was focused on creating my silkscreen books and comic and wasn’t really looking or getting many paid jobs. This year though has … Read More

Completed my “Tree of Life” print

July 30, 2013New art work

I finally completed my Tree of Life print, which has taken me a year of off and on work to complete. Following up from my last post on this project, it turns out that I fixed my spacing and sizing issues when I actually started drawing the thing, because as I mentioned before, I had … Read More

Grand Comics Festival this weekend

June 3, 2013News

This weekend I’ll be selling my work at the newly created Grand Comics Festival, at 343 Grand Street Brooklyn. I don’t have anything new from Mocca to sell, in fact my stock of wares needs to be replenished very very badly. Which I guess is just the right excuse to come to the festival before … Read More

Watercolor commission

May 1, 2013New art work, watercolors

An old coworker of mine recently commissioned me to do some watercolors of her newborn baby. You can see the results above. I was thinking, as I was doing the watercolors, that I’ve really gotten spoiled with crearing on the computer: you can always undo. With watercolors, if you make a mistake, it’s impossible to … Read More

Work in progress: tree of life

April 15, 2013New art work

Here’s something I’ve been working on and off for almost a year now: it’s a family tree of life on Earth. I first had the idea for it when after a trip to the Museum of Natural History where they had displays showing evolutionary pathways between organisms in some of the exhibits. I went to … Read More

Mocca fest 2013

April 3, 2013News

This weekend I will be sharing a table with fellow “squiders” Alden and Alex at Mocca Fest 2013. I’m paradoxically not super excited. I feel a bit burned out with festivals, and I really shouldn’t be considering I’ve only done eight over two years. We will have the new issue of 3-arm squid to debut … Read More

Illustration Served

March 19, 2013News

I got an email on Saturday, which unfortunately got filtered to my junk mail, informing me my “goggling at fishes” book was featured on the blog “Illustration served“, which is part of BeHance. I’m happy with any exposure, although I worry it means I actually have to post more stuff on BeHance. I’m kinda lazy … Read More

New York buildings

March 19, 2013journaling, Sketches

I don’t usually draw buildings or cityscapes because: 1 Drawing cubes doesn’t interest me, and 2 I have a hard time keeping everything in proportion, but here are some sketches I did recently. I think the sketch with the white sky is the best cityscape I’ve ever drawn. I still fudged up the amount of … Read More
