"Where is Home?" is a comic and illustration anthology I launched early this summer on Kickstarter. We successfully smashed through our goal of $4k, which is huge for a relatively unknown collection of artists who attempted something like this for the first time!
Well, we enjoyed the experience so much the first time that we’re going to attempt it again! Volume 2 of “Where is Home?” will launch next summer, should we garner enough interest and enthusiasm for the project a second time around. And we want a much larger volume this time around! We hit 60 pages for our first volume, but I want to hit 100. Maybe 120!! Who knows!
We had over 80 artists apply for volume 2, which completely floored me! So many passionate and talented artists poured in to make their mark, and it was an extremely difficult decision to narrow them down to the 30 I had originally planned for. So I pushed my comfort number to 38! And I’m pleased to introduce them to you now!

A youtube banner commission I did for chloeleelovesrt! Go check out her youtube channel here and watch her play Minecraft and other games!
I incorporated some Halo and Minecraft pieces here and added a retro vibe for the lettering. This was a fun piece to create plus, I also got out of my comfort zone to do this piece  :)

A sort-of orange header for my sister’s blog! If you noticed, the bg color is almost the same with my previous post (w/c was unintended)
Also, the word eudaimonia means a state of being content, happy or healthy. I even included a Korean dish (bibmbap!) for this illustration.

A red self-portrait for the 7 days of color challenge on Twitter!
Tried another different style for this. I had a lot of fun drawing those birds. I based them off the first red birds I saw on Google.  I also used as reference the backgrounds from Steven Universe :)
