Drawing is my passion. I draw every day if I can. I am inspired by Old Master drawings, ukiyo-e prints, cartoons, manga, and children’s books. I think it’s wrong for a piece of paper (real or digital) to stay blank for too long, so I try to fill the pages with animals, portraits, historic figures, political cartoons, and playful scenes. Through my drawings, I hope to show the color, the light, the beauty of the world, to escape dullness and drudgery and create something memorable.
