Cosmopolitan Magazine China, Aug 2014 issue
interview with cosmopolitan magazine in china. between you and me, internet, i can’t read this so i’ll translate my favorite question and answer for everyone out there who’s also illiterate:
COSMO: What’s the coolest and hottest thing you ever did?
JHOM: Oh gosh, what an interesting question. Maybe this is kind of lame, but the coolest thing I ever did was appear on the Google homepage on my birthday— it was also literally the hottest thing I did. I’ll explain. The doodlers were celebrating the birthday of film legend, Charlie Chaplin, with a black and white video. I played a muffin salesperson, and my costume was a full-length, wool, winter coat and a wool, wide-brimmed hat. Unfortunately, it was 90 degrees where we were filming AND the director had to reflect extra sun in my eyes for the sake of lighting. It was, therefore, the hottest thing I’ve ever done. The upside was that Chaplin and I share our birthday so I appeared on the homepage the day I turned 24.
and that is how to dance around a question laden with innuendo lol

when you’re far, you have to live in your own world.
i was talking to sophia a few days ago about her comics and process. listening to her inspired me to rethink some sketches i hadn’t solved. essentially, we talked about how compositions can drive a comic— which i found really refreshing. it feels nice to break out of the rectangle.
i really, truly wish i drew more comics.

i realize i haven’t posted many process images for a while— here are the underpinnings for my annual one-page comic
last of 26, color pencil on paper
i try to do one of these every year.. this one turned out way smirkier and less creepy than i intended :P
26 was rough.
i’ve heard that 27 is either forgettable or horrible/necessary.
haruka, watercolor on paper
4 years of classical schooling and 5 years of professional illustration evidently couldn’t train the sailor moon fan art out of me.
i don’t know if anything will make me happier than watching old sailor moon movies while painting neptune and uranus. that series was one of the best things about childhood. no joke.
why can’t there be more entertainment about kick ass girls? and what’s with every villain also being female? i’m sure this show is doused in metaphor about femininity…or is some social commentary about women in modernity. maybe i’m just frustrated by the ubiquity of the “weak boy protagonist” :P
my point is, i love sailor moon. everyone is strong and at least a little gay. and that’s the best.
i hadn’t worked in real media since last july and i’m surprised how much more satisfying it is to paint in real life than digitally.
