I’d love to see Edwin Ushiro’s works up close. Starting from pen to paper, then scanning and digitizing it, then finally printing onto a sheet of plexi-glass, where Ushiro continues to paint on, there is a fusion of traditional and modern/digital art styles that is appropriate for his image content. That’s because Edwin Ushiro calls upon his own childhood growing up in Maui for the scenes that occupy his pieces. And my favourite part is, he uses these scenes as a way to resolve aspects of his childhood that he wished he had done differently. Sounds incredibly cathartic, and makes me love his work even more.

Finals of my self-initiated redesign and illustration for The Rose and the Beast: Fairy Tales Retold by Francesca Lia Block.

Check out the project on my Behance page or on my website.

I really love the fusion of flat negative spaces vs. detailed hand-done illustration, and Coles Phillips does that beautifully. An artist in the early 1900’s in America, Phillips’ works were used for advertisements and magazine covers. The style is so modern, even for today.

I think about what goes on in Dutch based Illustrator and Designer, Zeloot’s brain. I’m imagining a kaleidoscope of exploding face juices, contorted ambiguous body parts, blunt smacking teeth and glowing black light paintings.

Interview with Forge Part II

Victo Ngai

Come take a look at some my trinket and book collections!  (And please don’t mind my rambling, it’s hard to talk and hold a giant book at the same time. ) (Also it was kinda a bad hair day…hmmm)

Great interview with NY based illustrator, Victo Ngai

Some of my favourite Sam Weber pieces. He has a melancholic twist on romantic imagery and a touch gruesome without the overkill on the gore.
