Patriarchy is an experimental mixed media short set to the narration of spoken word poet Travis Blackman. This short will also screen at the Chicago Filmmakers Asian American Filmmakers screening event this Saturday, Sept. 6. I worked closely with director Karen Chapman and editor Rajarshi Basu integrating animation into this piece and we couldn’t have completed this without everyone involved including Tonya Allen, Mary James, Karlo Melgarejo, Elena Zorkova, and Cherie Crocker. See you saturday! :)

My animated short film “Permute” will be screening at the Chicago Filmmakers this Saturday, Sept. 6 at 8pm. Details about the event can be found on the fb page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1433053193638283/

This is a curated selection of local #Chicago Asian American filmmakers including Eugene Sun Park (Headlining the series), Monica Eng, Jason Matsumoto and Daniel Izui!

Any Chicago locals or visitors to the Chitown area this weekend, do stop by! I look forward to meeting you and chattin up animation and film and other stuff. <3

Reading Den - ORIGINAL

Reading den was originally intended as a farewell note and contemplation on lost love in the summer of 2011. 

A quote from Bruce Lee is penned on the back as follows:

"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable."

Original painting.

Size: 4” x 6”
Surface: Watercolor paper (Canson Montval Cold Press 140lb)
Media: Ink, watercolor and gouache with silver ink embellishment.

This piece ships flat and may be insured when possible. Please make special requests in the shipment options box upon checkout and you will be contacted individually for rate adjustments if necessary.
