Motherland Chronicles #13 - Girl with Flower

Probably not what one expected when Toby and I finally collaborate. Eerie is eerie. And I already tried to make her less creepy. 

Anyway, Vietnam trip has been great~ Shot album cover and artwork for a singer, lookbook for Phuong My, and a cover story for Elle Vietnam. Off to Singapore the day after tomorrow, can't believe I'd been away for 4 months! Feels like it's been so much longer. Excited to be home for my birthday.

I'm terrible at keeping up once I travel. :( Meant to include some behind the scenes for this post and thus the delay, but never got around to them in the end T_T

Retouched the shot on the plane during my 26-hour trip from NY to Vietnam. I don't enjoy the cramped space for laptop and wacom but managed somehow anyway :D Really love the photo. Thank you team for the wonderful work and Savage Paper for the backdrop!

Bunch of new press stuff to share :D

3 images featured on PhotoVogue's frontpage for Pic of the Day last month:

To have a piece from Motherland Chronicles included makes me uber happy.


Interview with Slave Mag out in their new issue.

I shared a quote from Hermann Hesse's "Knulp", my aspiration is to one day slip in something from Gundam (when it's not to answer the question of how the zemotion came about).


Interviewed by Yale University's art magazine Out of Order. Talked about fashion, conventions, developing ideas, and deviantART.


And last but not least a shorter one with Mochi Magazine, about becoming and being a professional photographer:

So saddened to hear about the Boston explosions, I listened to the live reportage for a couple of hours during the day and it's so horrifying I wanted to cry. My heart goes out to everyone affected by the events, condolences to families and friends who've lost their loved ones.
