As humans we’ve always been drawing as Sooth has pointed out with his illustration of cavemen drawings and it’s a very interesting dance if we decide to take that perspective. Especially in recent years, changes in art making have been so fast. Artists might feel outdated with something they started experimenting a year ago. But the tools might change, we are still humans and we still need time to get better at something and it will take the time it takes. Those who are remembered are not the ones chasing trends and new tools, but those who focused on the things that mattered to them the most and stood out for their excellence.
Thank you as always and Enjoy.

Teach Them Well
No Toyota Crown
Acrylic on Canvas, 120 x 120
The automotive industry has always been a key contributor to a pretty solid Thai economy …and the terrible traffic. A long history of growth since the early 60s with Toyota Corp as one of the first to manufacture in the Kingdom of Thailand. Doesn’t look like the owner of this run-down 1970s Toyota Corona has anything to do with the “solid economy” nor with any economic growth. It’s not even a Toyota Crown ….. But he/she can probably tell a few truly interesting stories from the past.
Before Becoming the Buddha
These pages are from “Before Becoming Buddha”, a 60 page book (Thai version) 4 pages(color) 56 pages (B&W). Size 25 cm x17cm
I made a comic called “Before Becoming the Buddha” published in Thailand. The story covers about 6 years during Prince Siddhartha’s life after he left the palace before becoming Buddha. This part will have 3 volumes. Volume 2 &3 will be published in April 2024.
Trees as temples
Brush pen and tech pens
Historically and culturally Thai temples and Thailand have been inseparable. But if I were to change something looking at the stories about the Buddha, we are told that, he was a prince and left the palace to become the Buddha. The temples to me look like palaces, so it seems that we have put the Buddha back in palace. Also you can there are a lot of trees in my drawing. Because if the Buddha reached enlightenment under a tree, I think we should be planting more trees that building temples. But what do I know…?
