ABOUT

tempural, SCUMSUCK, or dead. 

 

I'm a Chinese-American cartoonist. I was raised in San Francisco's Chinatown.  Now I live in North Carolina. 

 

I like storytelling.  I draw comics, animations, storyboards, character designs, and illustrations.  I write a bit of media over-analysis and fiction as well.

 

My pretentious comics focus on the subjects of sex, death, love, loss, lower class struggles, and peepees.  I'm influenced by heavy metal music and album art from the 80's-90's, as well as horror films and dank yaoiz.

Q: Is your [x character] a BOY or GORL?

A: All my characters are fluid in gender and sexuality.

Q: What are your inspirations?!

A: Life experience.

Comics and cartoons from when I was a kid.  My favorite cartoon is Ed, Edd n' Eddy.  I liked superhero comics as a kid, and I straight up tried to copy the 2000's flash animation style back then.

Horror films and sad mindfucky movies.  1974's Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the most visually pleasing movies of all time.  I love the moods of The Wrestler, The Machinist, and Jacob's Ladder.

 

DANK YAOI.  My first doujinshi was a FF7 monsterfucking comic, and a Detroit Metal City doujin called "Shitsurei Shimasu" by Onsoku Skull is one of my absolute favorite doujins.  My favorite yaoi is Breaking Bad, the homosocial relationship between Jesse and Mr. White is straight out of an angsty manga.

 

Most of all, music!  Especially dad rock and heavy metal.  Anything from hair metal to black metal is good.  Van Halen, Queen, and Steel Panther mean a lot to me.  Alice Cooper, Mayhem, KISS, and Strapping Young Lad are great.  Outside of metal, 80's stuff like The Cure and Prince is cool.  I'm nostalgic for 90's-2000's pop like Lil Jon and Justin Bieber.
