Dragon

digital illustration

 

In Eastern mythology, dragons are serpentine, capable of flight even though they have no wings. Unlike Western dragons, Eastern ones are thought to be calm and benevolent. More often than not, Eastern dragons are sought for advice rather than slain by heroes, since their Western counterparts were said to be far greedier and prone to extreme bouts of violence.

 

While the form of this dragon suggests that it is of Eastern descent, its color and attitude reveals Western roots as well. My goal was to render a dragon with both sensibilities so that the contradictions can be merged naturally without it being pegged as from any specific home region.

slice of life - Sundays in Hong Kong are full of beautiful smiles, and here's one of the reasons why

slice of life - it isn't really a private beach, but for this couple and their dog, it might as well be

a self-portrait

slice of life - a boy and his dog, or rather a boy who'd apparently taken his dog out to the beach specifically to photograph his very excited wave-chasing canine friend

slice of life - the men balanced the box between them much like the women with the child

a fresh and unexpected burst of color still highlighted by morning dew

a clash of vibrant and violent, its chaotic form screams to be mentally rebuilt to be understood

we might be caught out in the rain, but at least we're in it together

a raging ball of wrath flaming spikes - interestingly, pink was originally described as a powerful color, and thusly marketed towards boys

just a little bit older, but all the same

not one to run with the crowd, but all the same

when the expectation is that the foreground is in focus while the background is less so, swapping them around can make for a surreal visual experience

Fresh Cut Findings

macro photography

 

This began as a photography 101 class scavenger hunt, but took on a life of its own. As I travel around the world, I frequently find myself taking note of these fresh, tiny treasures from nature. I share them if they 'make the cut' for me.

Scared of the Dark

tiny comic - based on a reoccurring nightmare from my childhood

Gishwhes Mascots

freehand illustration & digital sketching - both Gishwhes 2014 tasks

 

The above was meant to be drawn in the style of a New-Yorker comic, the kind often found in the newspapers.

 

Below is a depiction of a battle between the Elopus and the Wooster (the respective mascots for 2014 and 2013) with the Fograt (bonus earlier mascot) thrown in for good measure

 

These pieces were largely created for fun, and for a charitable cause.
