Tomi Um

Last weekend I was at the Brooklyn comics and graphics festival, which was awesome BTW... I got very inspired by all those graphic artists, in particular I found this illustrator Tomi Um spectacular. I love the way she incorporates a lot of asian influences into her illustration, and also how she turns the religious language into her graphic style that is just amazing.

Buy Nothing Day

“Consumerism is based on the idea in society that we never have enough and that getting more things will make us happier. It is preying on people’s basic feelings of contentment in order to make a profit for the few,” says Cindy Rosin, a spokesperson for the New York City-based Freegans and a supporter of Buy Nothing Day.

Library on a Donkey

waoo, this guy Luis Soriano makes me realized that we are spending too much time on complaining about how bad is our society affecting our life, instead of start to do something to change it.

Alex Dukal

Last night as my daily routine on my way of finding inspiration for my upcoming project, accidentally found this amazing Argentinean illustrator, Alex Dukal, I love his sophisticate pastel color usage, character design, and all those brush details. Definitely a good example to look at as a digital illustrator!

George Psalmanazar

I found this guy pretty funny, what would happen if Taiwan were just like what he described? I almost wish our culture were that mystic as in his narrative. Well, expect the carnivalism part...

"Building upon this growing interest in his life, in 1704 Psalmanazar published a book entitled An Historical and Geographical Description of Formosa, an Island subject to the Emperor of Japan which purported to be a detailed description of Formosan customs, geography and political economy, but which was in fact a complete invention on Psalmanazar's part. The "facts" contained in the book were in fact an amalgam of other travel reports, and were especially influenced by accounts of the Aztec and Inca civilization in the New World and by embellished descriptions of Japan. Thomas More's Utopia may also have served as an inspiration. According to Psalmanazar, Formosa was a prosperous country with a capital city called Xternetsa. Men walked naked except for a gold or silver plate to cover their genitals. Their main food was a serpent that they hunted with branches. Formosans were polygamous and husbands had a right to eat their wives for infidelity. They executed murderers by hanging them upside down and shooting them full of arrows. Annually they sacrificed the hearts of 18,000 young boys to gods and priests ate the bodies. They used horses and camels for mass transportation and dwelled underground in circular houses."

ethnic / opt art

This week I officially started a new narrative project, but for some reason, I just couldn't finish the storyline, since I kept adding new ideas( typical Pao's way of working )...So at some point, I got bored and decided to do something else. Then here you go, a draft for the background. Kinda like the idea to incorporate some ethnic elements with Optical art, quite an interesting mixture.
