These illos are for this month’s Utne Reader magazine. The title of the story is “ The Master and Mike DiMeglio”. It’s a true story about the Chinese White-Crane kung fu legacy and the master-apprentice relationship between Dr. Yang and his favorite pupil Mike DiMeglio, who betrayed the master and got kicked out of the training.

It was a very fun project as I could fully unleash my Chinese-ness and incorporate Sumie in the pieces. The project also got me a little nostalgic that I went so far to dug out a sumie painting I did back in high school. I remember being pretty proud of it but now it’s almost embarrassing…still cool to see how my work has evolved though!
Big thanks to AD Stephanie Glaros.
