Calendar Project, Children’s Book, and Online Shop

Hello, world!

This summer has been pretty crazy with The Collection Kickstarter fulfillment in June-July and a lot of traveling and moving around during July-August. I am glad to be able to sit down and get back to work on art projects! Currently I am working on two major projects and am excited to be able to share some of it with you guys.


  • Calendar illustration – This project is a collaborative calendar project with fellow members of HmongDeviants from the deviantART online community. A few years ago, members of this group produced a Hmong-themed 13-page illustrated calendar. Each artist had the opportunity to do an illustration reflecting the month they chose. The group is currently working on the second calendar for 2016 with the theme: Hmong folktales. The folktale I chose to illustrate is The Snake Prince and Pumpkin Seed. I will post an update as to when the 2016 calendars will be available for purchase.

  • Children’s book – This is a collaborative children’s book project I am working on with writer and educator See Lor. The story is called The Greedy Couple. It will be published through her book publishing company Reading Karma and will be available for purchase next year.

Last but not least, I would like to announce that my shop is open again! Physical books and art prints from The Collection is available online as well as the PDF version of Then and Now, a comic I worked on last summer.


As always, you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr for the latest project updates.

Have a good one!

Kickstarter Update & Online Store!

Hello everyone! It’s been quite a busy and fun summer so far. Here are some of my July updates!

1. Kickstarter rewards fulfilled! 

It’s been over two months since the launch of The Collection Kickstarter campaign! I am excited to announce that the Kickstarter rewards have been shipped!

2. I opened an online store!

Yes, that means you can purchase The Collection book / PDF version or any of the art prints if you missed out on the Kickstarter! I also plan on selling other future work on here as well.


The Collection Kickstarter Project – June Update

Hello everyone!

I am excited to announce that The Collection comic books have just recently arrived! The art prints have arrived as well.

In the next month or two I will be signing and doing personal sketches in some of the books and will be fulfilling each reward. Again, thank you to everyone who have been a part of bringing this project to life.

As always, you can follow me on FacebookTwitter, or Tumblr for the most recent updates on this project. If you’ve missed the Kickstarter and would like to purchase a book, please follow me on social media and I will be posting updates as to when they will be available for purchase.

Have an awesome summer!

Periodic Table of Elements Illustrations

The final project for my Digital Imagery classes was to create a set of 6 illustrations inspired by some of the elements of the period table. I chose the elements Gold, Silver, Hafnium, Lead, Meitnerium, and Terbium. Three had to be character designs and the other three had to be environment-inspired designs. Some of these illustrations were inspired by chemical characteristics or make-up of the elements rather than their physical attributes.

Fight, fight, fight!

A short illustration project featuring two figures from history or culture and showing them fight one another. Each student was divided into groups of two and were given a pair of figures. I received the fight between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, and the character I focused on was Steve Jobs. Below is a character model sheet of Jobs and three illustrations showing the pair’s fight.

State of Mind Project

Project Scope: create three diverse characters reflecting aspects from three different states.

Time frame: 1 week

— Three character turnarounds with four facial expressions
— Two 10″x8″ illustrations featuring all three characters interacting in an environment.

For this project, I decided to create a family of bears. I chose the states California, Montana, and Alabama to work with. The state mammal for California and Montana is a grizzly bear and for Alabama was a black bear.
