Never afraid to speak and/or draw her mind, Los Angeles based artist and illustrator, Hellen Jo and her characters can be described as rough, vulgar, tough, jaded, powerful, bratty and bad-ass - AKA her own brand of femininity. Known for her comic Jin & Jam, and her work as an illustrator and storyboard artist for shows such as Steven Universe and Regular Show, Hellen’s rebellious, and sometimes grotesque artwork and illustrations are redefining Asian American women and women of color in comics. In fact, that’s why Hellen Jo was a must-interviewee for our latest Sketchy Behavior where we talk to her about her love of comics and zines, her antiheroines, and redefining what Asian American women identity is or can be; and what her ultimate dream project realized would be.
I felt like drawing a comic again. This is what happened. I don’t think I’ve ever drawn a dog that good before, even if it is only a ‘dog’.
You can imagine it, though? A man an his weird poodle cross, busking at the corner of Main Street every sunny day, and you’ve never heard a violin sound quite like that before, never heard music come that easily before, and it brightens your day every time you hear him.
From the wonderful story “Where the lost go” by @whalehuntingboyfriends
I got commissioned a while ago by @armadil-lauren to made this comic inspired by Geoff and Gavin’s relationship in this story and the song “Dynasty” by miia
This is my first real attempt at comic layout kind of deal and I’m real proud of the result!
Levi lost his wife Petra in a car accident (yes thats annie) becoming a widowed single father.
After realizing he can’t work and take care of his son at the same time, he decides to call this particular daycare advertisement he saw to try and see if it works. Little does he know his life was about to change.
Thanks to irl-ask-ymir for inspiring me. I made some few changes tho u///u
