I met up with Justin this week and we watched Venom. It was bad but also good because the main characters are both losers HAHA. Venom is such a funny and needy slime puppy.

After watching the movie I had an urge to draw this...

I really put zero effort into likeness.

Continuing the OC meme, Piab asked me to draw Jorge from her wonderful webcomic, Café Amargo!

Thank you to "auto color" in photoshop for helping me land on a better version of this picture for Piab...!

Today's music post: Blue Moon by David Tao / 沙灘 by 陶喆. I only know about this song because of a cover that was on one of those talent shows. IDK why the official english title of the song doesn't match the words in Mandarin...?

Whilst sick this weekend, I had some time to finally hunker down and read through what's available of the online webcomic, Novae, an LGBT+ historical romance comic steeped in mystery, necromancy and the wonders of the universe. I had the pleasure of meeting KaiJu at TCAF before. Everytime their work graces my timeline, I just feel a sense of delight because their work is so quietly beautiful, and both meticulous and simple. I honestly wish that I could draw and create stories like them! I can keep wishing...!

To pay tribute to their work, I drew one of the main characters, Sulvain. I really enjoy picking out the nuanced cultural details in the clothing and environment of Novae. Here is my feeble attempt of lifting the webcomic's current colour palette, into a quick illustration.
