Welcome to BKK UNZINE art magazine, home to unseen independent artists from around the world.
The theme for the issue you’re about to run into is FOOLS.
We believe thatÂ it is our childish nature that keeps us creative, but an artist also needs to be foolish to actually bring one’s Â ideas to life.
If you are an artist and you want to get featured, the next theme for the MayÂ issue #9Â will be “MOVIES”,Â you can submit your artwork at this link:Â

This piece is a reflection of The Joker in skeletal form. It is actually only half of a drawing that I copied and mirrored. Originally it’s the Joker’s face on one side but when I make a piece like this I like seeing what it looks like with a full skull and bones.
Do you want to suggest the theme for future issues?Â
We are happy to give a special shoutout to our colleagues BANGKOKHAPS.com. We say colleagues because Polo and his team have been doing what we want to do which is to give Bangkok its rightful place as the Art hub in SouthEast Asia.
Bangkokhaps is a calendar of concerts, exhibition and cultural events for the city of Bangkok as well as a blog with interviews and articles about the people that make it happen in the artistic scene.
We invite you to check out the amazing portal they have built at the following link:
“Try me,” a fool’s errand
Digital art: Krita
Where I come from, people would sometimes sneak across the river to steal grapes from the farms. This March it just so happens that a local crocodile farm accidentally lost a bunch of crocodiles, everything is being done to recapture the crocodiles and they have managed to recapture quite a lot of them. This peace represents the new so-called “watchdogs” that they have received. And that it would be a fool’s errand to try and steal from them now.
Friends Fooling around – GTA Style
Shot on iPhone
This month’s theme was quite interestingly more about video and photography than being able to illustrate or sketch. Therefore here is a video that I shot couple years ago with my friends who were surprisingly willing to experiment. We were just fooling around at the sunrise spot at Phetchabun – Phu Thapboek viewpoint. The video was entirely shot on iPhone but edited in Premiere to give that look and the thuglife thing. I had barely any idea of how to use Adobe Premiere Pro. I hope you enjoyed the video. May be take a look further and see if my style of video contents inspire you in someway.

I wanted to go a bit meta this time and talk about artists themselves and life as an artist. We are not men, we are not women, we are not aliens or robots, we are just foolish enough to be artists in this world. I really enjoyed coming up with these random characters I was hoping to channel shades of two of my favorite artists Moebius and Frank Quietly.Â
