When I was working on Before I Grow Up, my original intention was for it to be an environmental piece but the composition didn't work out so I redrew it in this version.

Months ago I was walking down the street after it had just rained and saw the reflection of the city in the puddles. The way it glimmered looked like fresh paint and made me wonder what it would be like to repaint the reflection of a city. What would I change? What would the future generations wish we had changed?

In other news, I'll be at Fanime this May 22-25 in the San Jose Convention Center. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley (table 623) with prints :) I hope to see you there!

incredible, creative and thought-provoking, wonderful work; I dig the contrast of the toxic swirl in the sky and the toxic swirl in the water

At the eye of the hurricane
Her brother yet lies
Gathering a storm
That will last all time

Alone with her color
Alone with her paint
She wishes he'd stop
Before it's too late
