Ban Rak Sun
I rarely paint landscapes but this particular one is very special to me. It commemorates my trip to Norway and it captures the feeling I felt seeing that spectacular view. The first-hand feeling of being stress-free in the culture built around being stress-free.
Panel 4 from Neon Black, Issue 2
This is a painting for a comic book called Neon Black written by my buddy Kevin Briones. He also did the main and cover art. It’s about a girl who lost her parents and was adopted by the villains. I was given the opportunity to create the flashbacks. The story will span 4 books and Kevin’s currently working on the last 2.

One Sunny and Green Day
Gouache on Baohong pure cotton paper.
I had a one-day trip to the Khlong Maha Sawat, Nakhon Pathom province in Thailand with friends. When we were exploring this area by boat, the weather was so sunny and the trees were embracing the boat. I would like to keep this beautiful memory so I painted it like this.
Gouache in a sketchbook
The challenge was to paint in the style of your favorite artist or artwork. I decided to paint the rural French countryside where I went on holiday. I was inspired by David Hockney’s iconic impressionist landscapes. The flowers at the farm reminded me of Van Gogh’s famous painting Irises thus I combined the influences of these two artists to create my painting.
