Sherlock + Watson = 4-Eva [May 9th, 2013 | 3:59 am]
[Tags|, , , , , ]
[Audio |MS MR - "Dark Doo Wop"]

A show about Bromances? Well, then. Clearly, I had to do Sherlock Holmes + John Watson. And (sorry, RDJ stans) BBC's Sherlock is clearly the best iteration.

The Lonely God - Glow-in-the-Dark [April 14th, 2013 | 12:22 am]
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , , ]

So I recently did this piece as a limited-edition silkscreen for Bottleneck Gallery's "When the Lights Go Out" show. I thought the subject matter of Doctor Who would be a perfect fit. :)

[Audio |Purity Ring - "Lofticries"]

Oops, forgot to post the variant cover I painted for Archie Comics' Mega Man #21...

Check out the cover with trade dress here.

Description from Archie's December solicit list.

“Countdown”: It's almost New Year's Day, and Mega Man is ready to celebrate in style! Rock, Roll and Dr. Light are amongst the crowd waiting to watch the ceremonial light-ball drop at midnight, but the celebration is short-lived as the Emerald Spears return to exact their revenge on our heroes! The epic grudge match between Mega Man and Xander Payne begins now, so grab a front row seat and prepare for the battle royale!

Feminism, Comics, and Museums [September 9th, 2012 | 9:11 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]
[Where |New York, NY]
[Audio |The Naked and Famous - "Punching in a Dream"]

So I haven't really written in here for a while because I've been so busy. I do post slightly more regular updates over at my Official Facebook Page, if that's of any interest to you. But these days I barely have enough time to get a full night's sleep, let alone chronicle the goings-on of my life...

Just a run-through of things:
  • Back in July, I was invited to participate in a panel,"Destroying Gender Stereotypes in Comics" at the illustrious Bluestockings Bookstore. It was a fantastic evening full of thoughtful discourse, and I was incredibly humbled to be able to discuss comics and feminism with a panel of amazing fellow woman creators and to an audience that was so packed, every seat was taken and there was standing room only in the back. Wow!

  • I also completed a 4-page comic, "Weightless", for Shattered: The Asian American Comics Anthology, the second volume of Secret Identities. I love this project and have wanted to be involved with it since the first volume came out back in 2009.. So as you can imagine, I was just thrilled to be asked to work on volume 2!
Oh, and last but certainly not least... The art for the "Weightless" comic I mentioned will be exhibited at MOCA NY (Museum of Chinese in America) for its "Alt.Comics: Asian American Artists Reinvent the Comic Book" show. Here's the flyer with additional details.



To RSVP for this event, please E-mail: programs@mocanyc.org

Yep, this makes my second museum exhibition. :) (The first being the NeoIntegrity: Comics Edition show at MoCCA... The Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art.) Super stoked.

Hope you all can make it. :)

Chang'e [March 9th, 2012 | 12:17 am]
[Tags|, , , , ]
[Where |New York, NY]
[Audio |The Walking Dead on AMC]


Chang'e
Acrylic and Digital | BUY PRINT HERE

Light + Dark. Warm + Cool. Project + Reflect. Sun + Moon. Yang + Yin. Houyi + Chang'e.

I was asked to contribute to Dark Horse Comics' Once Upon a Time Machine anthology, and was thrilled at the prospect of tackling the theme of futuristic fairy tales. So I chose the Chinese legend of Chang'e, the goddess of the moon.

Originally, I wanted to do Red Riding Hood, but apparently that had been chosen several times over. And on a whim, I did a Tarot reading for something unrelated and drew the XVII. Moon card -- which in my deck (The Goddess Tarot), was represented by Chang'e. Serendipitous, one might say.

Customized VonZipper goggles for YRB Magazine [January 8th, 2012 | 5:53 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , ]

YRB Magazine recently commissioned me to customize a pair of VonZipper Misslepop snow goggles for their Nov/Dec issue (on newsstands now!), and hilarity ensues.


Alternate covers for YRB Magazine #206

I had a few ideas including a femme (typical me) "Rose-Colored Glasses" theme, but they promptly needed to be scrapped when I finally got the googles in the mail and saw that they looked like this.

And I couldn't swap out the lens for another color. And I had only a little over a week to finish it.

So I rolled with it and went with a fiery concept instead to match the amber lens. And of course, because snow and fire are opposites. (Or more dorkily, Ice and Fire...)

This is what I came up with.


+7 more photos from various anglesCollapse )

Basically snow goggles + crapload of paint + LED Christmas garland + ribbons = this awesome monstrosity.

YRB also featured my finished goggles and a short interview both in their magazine and website...

(click the magazine page to go to the their official page)

Unfortunately, the photographer was unable to turn the lights on by the time they received them... (and I was unaware that the goggles were to be worn) But hopefully the concept still shows through.

Hope you enjoyed my first attempt at 3D art since 2003. Fun times!
