BKK Unzine Issue 24 - Loss

Here we are as our third group exhibition titled “Where are we now” running as this is published at 404 art gallery and yet we have managed to receive many submissions so thank you very much for showing up, we wouldn’t be able to publish our monthly online issues without your submissions. Feel free to reach out to us or better yet please join our meetups so you can talk to us in person and join our fun activities with the growing art loving and art making community.

The theme Hybrid was an interesting invitation for people to showcase their imagination in combining creatures, state of beings, even suits with human and animal life forms as a cute wake up call for the growing pollution.

Artists in this issue

Comic book artist and Organizer Jonathan Scott talks about Portsmouth Comic Con


That time I talked to Comic Con Coordinator and Comic book artist Jonathan Scott about Portsmouth Comic Con and the Comic Artists from Thailand he was able to feature as part of the international initiative.

Portrait PM 2.5

M 2.5 gradually affects the health of Thai people . If we don’t act quickly, it will become a part of our lives and we can’t avoid it. This series of works created in the hope that it will inspire people to realize that PM 2.5 is a serious Problem. Here the characters cannot survive without their suits making them unvoluntary hybrids.

This world is so vast, with many wonderful things. How can we distinguish what is true from what is false?

Acrylic and glitter on canvas 
This inspired from what people think as impossible. I combined a wild animal with an aquatic animal to make impossible things to be possible on this canvas. 


Hybrid cats

Piya - Thorns of Grief

Here is a picture of my cats. I made them half animals and half cats. Hikaru and Kaoru got the nickname of Hik the hippo and Kar the kangaroo when they were just kittens. For this theme I looked at the start of my cats names and chose a animal that suits the personality. Kyo is my cat in England, the other four are my cats here in Thailand.

Kyo the koala

Dumpling the duckling

Hikaru the hippo

Kaoru the kangaroo

Mousse the moose


For the final version I changed these drawing into digital. I wanted to share the drawing stage. The first one I did was Dumpling. After he turned out so well. I did Mousse. Then the twins I had to draw Hikaru three times until I was happy with his version. The last one is the old boy in England Kyo.

Games and animals inspired me to create this artwork. I would like to create my own style of character in a game, a hybrid creature that would look SICK.

Bulbasaur garlic attraction

Piya - Thorns of Grief

Girls want to stay healthy and boost immunity. They like garlic, because it contains a lot of vitamin C.

Bulbasaur likes girls, because they are very pretty, so he chooses the easiest strategy to become attractive = is to become a garlic…

This artwork was started with sketches with pencil on paper and then inked and colored in Clip studio paint on an Ipad.
