The moon cracked into three pieces. Strange women came out from the black water as they raised their hands. They cried as they worshipped the moon, for they knew that the world was going to end soon.

Welcome to tomatoXorange

I will be posting my works, idea development, and progression on this blog. I've never shared my works publicly (especially on website/online), so I'm nervous and excited to receive people's feedback.

I wanted to reflect on how much I've progressed by updating my old illustrations first. The tool I used to draw (illustrations from 2006 ~ 2008) was just a cheap pen you could get for a dollar. It wasn't a great pen at all. Sometimes the ink refused to come out, and the pen easily broke when I put too much pressure.

I realised that my old drawings reflect what kind of person I am: A Perfectionist. Everything had to be perfect and balanced; the lines, the form, the colour, the contrast...

My philosophy, which I've often expressed through my works, is that there is a hidden beauty in personal/inner pain and suffering. I'm also obsessively intrigued by the process of how we become an adult. How is a childhood lost?

As of now, I try to focus more on narrative rather than style.

I'm aiming to earn BA Illustration at The University of Arts London. As a student, I'm still learning to experiment with various mediums and materials.
