|What art means to me|
The art and ramblings of a disillusioned idealist.
I'm a digital artist, graphic novelist, and UC Berkeley grad with a focus on environmentalism and cyber activism.
I've illustrated and authored numerous graphic novels and plushed a few books. I'm currently working on the Axent Wear cat ear headphones that I designed.
When I'm not drawing away or dealing with the unpleasant business side of running a headphones company, I enjoy sculpting, hiking, and experimenting with aquaponics.
Here's a 2 hour speed paint I just finished, and it feels so good to let my imagination flow again. This painting features Fantine and Lala from my WIP children's book "Dream Without Dream". You can get HD file of this painting and process video on my newly made Patreon

I haven’t been posting lately because I’ve been sick the past week and also busy working on the Patreon video. But I’m much better now and back in action. Hopefully my Patreon will be up by this weekend as well as the newest chapter of Fisheye Placebo.
Here’s a photo of me holding a giant paper koi I made. I was testing out how scalable the koi lantern designs are, and it works!
