I have quite a bit of traveling planned this Summer...from NYC to Copenhagen to Venice to Berlin and a few more spots. Very much looking forward to all the different colors, cities, and cultures in the coming weeks.
This art is linked to my previous work. The protogonist has entered the other side of the world. A weird place but it seems familiar as this world is nothing but his consciousness and diary is just a portal which let him in here
Part of a series of drawings following characters on a journey through strange and chaotic zones of a gigantic metropolis. I really enjoyed using the Sakura brush pen for this one.
My entry for the Urban Explorer drawing challenge.
I have never loved drawing anything city related because I am lazy when it comes to perspective. However, I have learned that I actually like the wobbly nature of my more recent attempts. Or, I simply embraced my laziness. Either way it has been fun!
Lulu in her city. At night. With pets.
Gouache on Arches watercolor paper. I have been living overseas for 6 years now with my wife. (Originally from the states) We have lived in Seoul, South Korea, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Tel Aviv, Israel, and in the Summer we will move once again to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. So this is a painting is a sort of self-portrait.

Life of a cat
This is part of a broader idea for a big busy city teeming with different characters. Some of those characters will travel deeper through this city and through different lands. Eventually they get back to where they started from.

Pen and ink drawing of the buildings on the Graslei in Ghent (Belgium).
Some bicycles in front of a statue and a bicycle shop. Sittard, The Netherlands. I am not quite happy , the way the statue worked out. I should have used a smaller nib for that.
Acrylic on paper format A3
This is part of an ongoing series.
This was meant to be a quick 4”x 5” piece but somehow sucked up way more time than I’d planned. From my own photo for reference.
I don't know how to explain properly this one. I wanted to display the universe and the characters at the same time (well, again) . Actually if you look closer you will notice the bench is in the movement, but the space is really big that it looks like a room and.. well anyways all im saying I got that sense of atmosphere not exactly in the way I originally wanted. I used highly contrasted orange for the feel of pollution and high temperature in the air. Well I don't know there's a lot I can share about this piece, but I would love to hear some of your opinions. Thanks!

Colored pencil and ink on pastel paper.
The monsters we create
A collection of creatures born from our impact and existance on Earth. This is a work in progress project, it doesn't yet have a name, but the story becomes more clear every day. Soon I will have more details about it, until then take care, this runner is taking a real shape and it's after you. He is the money maker, the greedy, the selfish buyer of unnecessary things with money he doesn't have. Sounds familyar?
