I can't help it how big an impact Wong Kar-Wai's movies has on my art. As soon as I saw fresh backstage shots of Tao Okamoto from the fashion weeks, I imagined them into sort of 'In the Mood for Love' settings. For this picture story I would also need a love interest for the girl and I happened to find a perfect player from a supporting role in a German detective series. Actually it was my mother who noticed the man while watching the episode from the video and asked me if I could use him for some of my drawings. So I took digi snapshots from video stills for the reference. Without further ado, I present the first part of the new picture story.
