“Millions of Mainland Chinese fled to Taiwan with the National Government after its civil war defeat by the Chinese Communists in 1949. Their children were brought up in an uneasy atmosphere created by the parents’ own uncertainty about the future. Many formed street gangs to search for identity and to strengthen their sense of security.”

A Brighter Summer Day (1991, Edward Yang)

cinematography by Chang Hui-kung and Zhang Long-yu

This is Pomi, our very first children’s book is finally being put together! Now accepting pre-orders through >>Etsy Shop Here<<

It is a book about a little beetle trying to find her place in her big big world. Written by @catarang and Illustrated by me.

To get an accurate count of how many books I should print, and make this launch super fun, I want to hold a CONTEST. (For the first time ever!)

To enter, simply reblog this post before May 15th Noon PST. Winner will receive a free book once I print it, anywhere in the world! I will put everyone’s name on a list and do a random generator thing…or print it out and let my cat pick, who knows.

1:38 AM Perhaps I just wanted to make it a milestone, or didn'nt want my birthday to end, or just wanted this idea of suppose-to-be-simple and easy little scene drawn out or etc. etc….

Or maybe, I wanted to thank everyone who has been with me in my life so far.

… …

At this hour, one gets cheesy. so, screw that! I just passed the 1k followers here on tumblr and this is for you :)

Now, take a little nap for me and hope that you are at your peaceful spot.

Good night!!

“Chen Qiulin’s work for the past 10 years has been about memory and loss and the impact upon society of China’s political and economic reforms. From watching her hometown being dismantled and submerged in the waters of the Three Gorges Dam, to the devastation of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, she has experienced the reverberations of loss and has been telling this story through her and others personal experiences in various ways and mediums.”

I use painting to bring me to places. Isn’t it a nice super power that we have? Whether it be painting, drawing, music or dance.

Sometimes it’s nice to not care so much about what we know and don’t know. What techniques we know and what we have yet to acquire. It’s a painting to bring my own heart to that quiet place, and I hope it brings the same peace to yours.
