Everybody was...


Kung-fu fighting girl, Chinese actress Chen Jia Jia, caught in a series of studies/sketches which each took about 10 minutes or less to finish, all based loosely on stills I took from a technically very poor quality web video of her appearance in a Chinese TV show. The cat is faster than lightning so I couldn't catch her kicks!

Great scott! Haha just seeing these makes me remember the classic kung-fu movies, the awesome ones (chainsaw duel anyone...remember that, Tiger on the Beat?).

I can't help, but get that Genndy Tartakovsky feeling when I see your work (Who's one of my favorite artist of all time). Your work is really inspiring and I continues to make me want to push my own work it's limit.

Haven't unfortunately seen Tiger on the Beat. Probably should seek it out as chainsaw duel sounds too intriguing to be missed! And as for Tartakovsky, yea, I'm familiar with his work (dare I even mention I have few episodes of Powerpuff Girls on DVD...!).

And returning the favor, comments like this make me want to do my best in the future too! Cheers!

Haha oh don't feel to bad, I have the box set to Powerpuff girls and Samurai Jack. What can I say...the man is a genius with his art.

Another thing that is so great about your work is just the style of it and the content, I think one of the most important parts of a piece of art is how the style works with the content. In your case it's always flowing like a river, but it's never the same river. It's more of a stream really, it gradually pushs in a direction that makes it smooth and relaxed.
