Illustration for Ricepaper Magazine

whooo!! I did the cover for Ricepaper Magazine, "RepresentASIANS" issue 15.2 which is out now! The theme resonates strongly with me as it deals with identity and representation of visual minorities in North American culture - so I'm very proud to have been a part of this issue! Ricepaper is Canada's only magazine devoted to showcasing Asian-Canadian artists, writers, performers and innovators. You can check it out/pick one up at Vancouver downtown's Chapters on Robson or check on their website for more info on other locations or subscriptions.

New creepy drawing

Made a creepy b&w ink self portrait based on a craving for pho I've developed ever since moving to 221a haha. I've also made a colour version which you can see on my website!

Opening: Slivers, Shivers & Snake skins

The opening was great fun! Good turn out (I didn't know it would be so busy!), especially running into friends I haven't seen in forever. I just got a photo of some of my work from my friend Dennis Ha who was photo-documenting the show. Unfortunately I didn't think to snap some photos of my own or of other artists since I was totally enthralled by all the awesome performances going on! The show should be up @ Chapel Arts until May 1st by appointment. Check it out if you can!

Flickr page is back!

I totally forgot I had a Flickr account set up. I'm hoping to post most of my photo projects there. Check out a few of the shots I took during a photodoc project of a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class I did in order to submit to one of VIA's open calls!

exploring text?

Yesterday I was taking a break from drawing at the studio and decided to make a shitlist...but I tried to play around with writing and text forms.

Slivers, Shivers & Snake skins

Some of my work will be in this show!

Slivers, Shivers & Snake skins - a show curated by Zarah Ackerman.

slivers - something that intrudes upon you physically that is not easy to remove.
shivers - a bodily reaction to your environment.
snake skin - a physical presence, visual, texture, relating to death, slithers, fear

Become affected and delve into an altered state with a heightened sense of being.
Be a part of this mind altering event and participate in a happening where noise reigns supreme and shivers are welcomed.
