Lucky #13 of our Artist Spotlight series is Vivian Ng (viivus) also known as Vivi! She likes to draw cute, pretty things with bright colors. She probably spends more time reading fanfiction and drawing fanworks for various media than she spends watching or reading the sanctioned works. She also really loves comics and would like to push her art into something more suited to that direction.

  • Ladies of Literature: Volume 2 Character: Medusa from Greek Mythology
  • Favorite childhood book: “I didn’t actually like books when I was a kid, I grew up on a steady diet of shonen manga. Also, my favorite was Naruto.”
  • Favorite work song: ”Not sure if I would say this song is my favorite, but one time I played the remix of ‘Tight Pants Body Rolls’ on loop for an entire day while working”
  • Fictional character you feel on a spiritual level: “Am I allowed to name cartoon characters? I’m really into Pearl from Steven Universe right now.”
  • What are you working on right now: “Currently I’m trying to get my act together and come up with some kind of schedule so I can balance my freelance and personal works. My goal is to get a Patreon set up and create some semi-regular content to release on Gumroad!”

Will the poor guy realize that Medusa just wants to be left alone? Back LADIES OF LITERATURE: VOLUME 2 Kickstarter (http://kck.st/1AQ6cuq) and see for yourself!

We all need somebody to look at us. We can be divided into four categories according to the kind of look we wish to live under. The first category longs for the look of an infinite number of anonymous eyes, in other words, for the look of the public…

The second category is made up of people who have a vital need to be looked at by many known eyes. They are the tireless hosts of cocktail parties and dinners…

Then there is the third category, the category of people who need to be constantly before the eyes of the person they love. Their situation is as dangerous as the situation of people in the first category. One day the eyes of their beloved will close, and the room will go dark..

And finally there is the fourth category, the rarest, the category of people who live in the imaginary eyes of those who are not present. They are the dreamers.
