Yuki Onna

Hello everyone,

time to show a project I have been working on recently and just finished for an exhibition/event in Tokyo, last Friday. This project was done in conjunction with the Kamishibai Bunkasuishin Kyougikai, the society for distribution of Kamishibai. Kamishibai is a japanese original type of story-telling, where a narrator will tell a story with the help of illustrated boards. Yuki Onna (The Snow-Woman) is a japanese ghost-story about a young woodcutter meeting a snow-ghost during a nightly snowstorm. The version used for these illustrations is by Lafcadio Hearn published in Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things. You can, if you like, read the ghost-story Yuki Onna in English here. All in all 13 illustrations, which would be shown shown one by one during an actual Kamishibai narration. All work done 100% in Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint, original size is slightly smaller than A3. Enjoy~

Hey everyone, been a while since I posted, I want to let you know I’m on twitter and tumblr now!

Here are the first images from a new series of works titled “Eremos”

“Eremos” envisions the mythological archetypes of tribal cultures living ages after the fall of civilization.  These Mask designs are early explorations into gods, spirits and motifs for this world.

I’ll be continuing to work on these masks along with more narrative images based on classical mythological archetypes and will post more as they come. Thanks for looking!

North VS South…

Hey everyone, sorry it’s been a little while since I last updated. I’ve been very busy creating new paintings for upcoming shows. I will have plenty of updates in the next few months, so sit tight for those. Here is one I am squeezing in  just in the nick of time for an upcoming show.

This painting is for the Robert Lange Studios’ theme show: “North Vs. South.” Now, I’m not usually a fan of doing themed shows, but since this was the first time showing in an event for the gallery, I wanted to make a good impression. As you will see, the theme was interpreted very loosely by most of the artists anyway.

Those of you who have been fans of my Painted Roses series will note that I am now incorporating multiple figures in my series. I was required to create two paintings for the show, one that fit the concept of the “north” and one that fit the concept of “south.” I chose to go with Red and Blue, because it works well as two colors that go together side-by-side. Connecting the two with parts of the corresponding color bleeding into each other further connects the two.

“North South East West” 2 24×12 in. oil on linen panels in a 24×24″ frame. $4000.

Here are a couple of photos that I took from my Instagram that show the progression (click to enlarge.)

Here it is, framed inside of the gallery:

Here is the link to the show. Reception is this Friday evening.


Thirty painters come together to exhibit, North vs South, featuring two works of the same size from each artist, one that is inspired by the subject or theme South and one by subject or theme North. This event is part of CFADA’s Fine Art Annual weekend.
5-8 PM November 1st, 2013. ALL ARE WELCOME

Some notes on the process: For a majority of the figure painting I was using lead white to paint the skin. Compared to titanium white, the tinting strength and handling is so much more subtle. It’s like the difference between using cobalt blue and phtalo blue. No dealing with ruining light-side mixtures by accidentally mixing too much white into the pile. If you are interested in doing high-key paintings, I suggest trying it, because I think it would be so much easier because there are so much less value jumps in your mixing.
