Le Loup!

The Goose Girl

Hi all!
I recently finished illustrations for a book to be published in March 2012 by Usborne Publishing in the UK.
It is a retold story of the Brother Grimm's "The Goose Girl".
These were all done with fountain brush and ink on paper, and coloured digitally.

Sketching on the streets

Sketching with a fountain brush and ink is quite the challenge! Rushing to catch a silhouette walking by, while trying not to spill the ink...!!!

My sister and I discovered that there is a sauna room in our building! This place is addictive!!! Great for trivial chit chat too.

The Bunnies

My mom always buys me gifts whenever she comes back from China. I can say with confidence that we have similar tastes. However, the other day, I realized that the backpack she gave me had a pattern of bunnies! BUNNIES!!!! Imagine, at 27 years old, walking around with a backpack with a bunny pattern! The HORROR!


Last time I was in Kyoto was in summer 2009. I really wish I wasn't so busy running around, and had taken the time to sketch all the small alleys and old houses.

Catch that puppy library scene

This is for a childrens' book soon to be published with Mathew Price Inc. I wanted to create the same feel as the old 'where is waldo' books. Hours of work, but well worth it!

Street Fashion

I am a big fan of the Sartorialist, street photographer.
The styles some of these people have is just so inspiring, whether it's in their face, expression, colour combinations....

Japanese Garden

I just got a copy of the June edition of CHIRP magazine, where I had to draw a 'japanese maze'.
