These drawings came out of some cool assignments we had while studying with the great Lisa Keene, The goal of that class was to come up with a new take of the classic story of Hansel and Grettel.
My version took place in a neon color Wong Kar Wai-inspired city; Inhabited by lonely kids, premature parents and Harajuku puppet slaves.

What can I say? Jung Hwan Park is a magic wizard that's all. He kept a calm head in our darkest hour and we were able to make a feel good skit that features music by an Indonesian band called Mocca.
I designed characters and backgrounds for the short, inspired by the sketches of classic designs by Disney Imagineers.
Last Producers' Show opening turned out awesome thanks to the effort of a bunch of cool CalArtians. I was in charge to do the background and design the props for the Totoro opening spoof. Then lots of people animated them and Ethan Metzger composited the whole thing.
And I did the logo for our team's t-shirt! Thanks Maija!
In January, I collaborated to create a children's book which proceeds were meant for the benefit of the victims of the Haiti earthquake and to send them a gift copy of the book. This was a collective of illustrations by various artists and the text was created by CalArts graduate Noah Gilbert.
