Thanks for coming to my show!

Thank you all for visiting my first exhibition at Sequential Art Gallery last month. The reception night was wonderful. I was so happy to see so many people there and to have a chance to talk about my art! Here are some photos from the reception night.

New prints and commissions at RCCC 2015

Thanks for everyone who visited my table at yesterday’s Rose City Comic Con!

I had a couple of new prints for sale this time. One is based on characters from my original comic “Children of Loki.” I’m glad to see many people liked this piece 🙂

It was great catching up with old friends and meet new people! 🙂

I don’t have any more conventions planned for this year, as I’m working on a serial comic project at the moment. I’ll be sure to attend RCCC next year though!

Mentioned on Bleeding Cool!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog, but lots have happened in the past few months. I’m working on few new projects, met lots of cool people at NYCC, did a comic-making workshop for kids at a local public library.

Last October, I attended (as a visitor) at New York Comic Con for my first time! Just the sheer size of the event was mind-blowing. One of the greatest things that happened there among many is my latest comic “A Quite Trail of Tears and Bloods” was mentioned on Bleeding Cool.

Check out the full article here to see what they have to say about my comic! I feel very honored and thankful to wonderful Hanna Shannon whom I had so much fun talking with at Image/Multiversity party.

Another thing I did recently is a comic-making workshop at Woodburn Public Library. It was my very first time to teach others how to draw comics, so I was naturally a little nervous, but all the kids had so much passion for art, I really enjoyed helping them out. It was a truly inspirational experience for me too.

Rose City Comic Con!

I have a couple of new things coming out for this weekend’s Rose City Comic Con.

First, I have a new 14-page mini comic, A Quiet Trail of Blood and Tears, based on a story written by Ken Brady. Here is a quick preview.

Children of Loki in Collaboration with Caitlin Like

Thank you for visiting my table at Rose City Comic Con!
At the con, we released our first print of Children of Loki, a book about a viking family destined to battle against the offspring of Norse god Loki.

You can now read this comic online! Check it out here.

Let me tell you a behind-the-scene story. Caitlin Like is my fellow apprentice at Periscope Studio, and at the Stumptown Comic Festival in 2013 we both tabled together at its Artist Alley. There, I was asked to do a few commission pieces for good friends. Their prompts were “a beautiful viking,” a beautifu viking’s brother,” and “a beautiful viking’s father.” Thus, an entire family of viking was instantly created on site! Caitlin and I had so much fun chatting about this family, we decided to do an actual comic about them.

In Children of Loki, I told a story about the father and his mysterious companion, and Caitlin’s story rotates around his two sons (the original “beautiful viking” and his brother). We didn’t really talk about details to each other, but somehow we both had a pretty unified idea of what the story should be. I absolutely love it when a simple idea on the whim of the moment turns into something incredible, tangible, and fun! Many thanks to kind friends at Crab Tank, Caitlin, and my husband (my best proofreader) for helping this comic come true. I’m setting up a place so I can sell this comic on web.
