Lots going on. Been busy with a bunch of stuff. But I am unfortunately unable to post everything here.
Snapshot of a piece for an upcoming publication:
Couple of doodles:
And a couple of freehand ballpoint pen drawings:
This is inspired by an exhibit I saw a while ago where a bunch of artists were given ballpoint pens to draw with on a single sheet of paper. Its an awesome idea for an exhibit.
Check out the Yoshitaka Amano exhibit at Art Statements Gallery in Soho, he painted with car paints on aluminum, so the paintings have this awesome smooth finish and glisten, that photo reproductions don't do justice. And also, Murakami is coming to exhibit at Fabrik Gallery in HK. I unfortunately missed this at the Brooklyn Museum of Art right before I left NY, but I have big earlobes, which in Chinese culture means good luck. So how lucky I am for his work to come to HK! Can't wait!
I am also doing a regular stint on an interior, quarter page illustration for Time Out HK magazine. It's for Angie Wong's Under the Table article.
And I am working on a few things for
Audiotraffic, probably one of the best rock bands that exist in HK. Seriously.
I was recently asked to be photographed and interviewed for my work in an upcoming publication project related to the KDU. But as this project was about New York's creative scene, it hurts me to say I cannot be a part of it as I am now based in Hong Kong.
If you don't know the KDU, you probably should. The KeyStone Design Union is a community that I like to think is at the cutting edge of the design scene. They are responsible for the awesome magazine that is known asThe Royal Magazine. If you have ever taken a class in the history of graphic design, you should realize that all the key elements you study are were what considered to be "cutting edge" in it's time, and therefore 'not of the norm'. Take high-end fashion, in which most the things we see are not considered by the general public to be 'acceptable'. However, within time these things we see will filter down to tastes that most people will come to accept.
That's how I like to think of the KDU. Exclusive to elite tastes only.
Anyways, it sucks that I can't be a part of something that awesome right now, and I really wish I could have. But regardless I have to say there is something exciting about being in HK that I can't describe.
