I now want to go SHORTS SHOPPING *w*
My bread baking bone breaking badass for Jenn Woodall’s FIGHT! zine!
Because nothing beats some hot ‘n crusty bread.
I made the gif just for kicks, but it’s wonky in places because it took waaaay longer than I planned for and I had to stop! Overall though, this has been probably one of the funnest pieces for me to draw. Definitely influenced by my everlasting love of Kiki’s Delivery Service & not-so-secret desire to live in a bakery. I wanna do more food-themed fighters!
Prints available from my Inprnt store.
Practising with pencils this time for quick 15-30 minute doodles/drawings! Used refs for the more realistic ones, but of course decided to do a little merlion one for fun :D
Bundle up against the cold in this heavyweight, reversible Star Wars hoodie! The Chewbacca side is completely covered in Faux Fur across both the front and back. Flip the hoodie inside-out for a second design inspired by the parka Han Solo wore on Planet Hoth. Sold at Amazon.

An illustration for the Washington Post about the Smithsonian Folklife Festival! Each year they feature two countries, and this year it was Kenya and China!
The AD wanted the illustration to capture the spirit of the festival and highlight the crafts, food, and music of both countries. I played around with a few different variations, but In the end we decided that the thumbnail image showing the two characters was the best solution. We ended up changing the Kenyan lady’s clothing to traditional Maasaii dress for the final, which I had a blast researching. It was a fun challenge to render the explosion of cultural elements in the background without pulling too much focus away from the characters.
I usually work in gouache, but with such a tight deadline, I had to step a little bit out of my comfort-zone and do this image 100% digitally. I’m really happy with the results! Might consider switching it up more in the future.
A big thanks to Allison Ghaman!
I really need to use more traditional media cause its really quite calming
