NYTimes illo-Japan's Crisis and Nuclear Energy

A call from AD Alexandra Zsigmond at 1pm yesterday, sketches by 3pm, final by 6pm. And the illo is in the NYTimes paper today! First time having such a short turnaround and it's surprisingly exciting and fulfilling.

The piece is for the letter page of the Times about Japan's Crisis and Nuclear Energy.
Check out the article here.

I really hope Japan will be able the resolve the nuclear crisis and recover from the diastar soon. Some of my artist friends raising money for Japan with their art, please go support!

New Illo for Runners' World Mag

"Wingman"-a new illustration for this month's Runner's World magazine. The top image is my original version and the one below is the tweaked version in the magazine.
Runner's World magazine uses tons of illustrations, so I was really excited when I got the job from the wonderful AD Marc Kauffman. So glad to be in the same issue with other wicked great illustrators such as: Marco Chin, Josh Cochran, Michael Byers, Pete Ryan and many more.

I was born in 1930, 3500'N 10500'E

I am doing a comic collaborative, titled "Dimension", with a bunch of my friends from RISD for the upcoming MoCCA. Basically every one's comic starts with entering a portal and end with exiting one, here is my contribution - I was born in 1930, 3500'N 10500'E.

I am by no means a comic artist so this is more like an experimental piece and I need your comments and critiques! I wanted it to be a dedication to my grandparents and their generations.

RI Monthly tear sheets

I just got these from AD Dean and I have to blog about it because the layout is just lovely.
Love how the type interacts with my illos and the design of white space as breathing room.

New Illo for Rhode Island Monthly

"The Best Places to Live in Rhode Island"- a series I did for Rhode Island Monthly magazine March issue which just came out a few days ago.

This is probably the most epic editorial assignment I have done so far. I finished these five illustrations in 1 week and a half, time was a little tight but it was a fun challenge.

I was really happy when AD Dean Welshman called me for the project. Rhode Island is like a second hometown for me, it carries 4 years of wonderful college memories.

Also, Dean was just really great to work with. He understands that artists work the best when they are given the most creative freedom.
So yeah, really fun project!
