Art is expression of the ideal. Without these images of perfect people and fantasy novels, where would dreams and goals come from?

    The Snapdragon Chronicles Homepage

    This is a comic book I've been drawing for the past two years. Issues 5-8 are available online. There is an average of 7 pages per issue. In general, SDC (Snapdragon Chronicles) is a hybrid science fiction/fantasy story about the interaction between a magical world and ours. The year is 2012 A.D..

  • I also have additional artwork that has been published in 15 RUNE: An MIT Journal of Arts and Letters.

    My Favorite Anime/Manga Artists on the Web

  • Eri Irazawa, one of my mentors, she's both a very good writer and artist.
  • Aimo - She is a very promising young artist.
  • Jennifer Kolanek - The creator of my favorite web-based comic book, RunAMUCK. Check it out!
  • Hiro^2 - probably the most famous of us, Hiro^2 has my highest respect. Not only is he damn good, but he hosts pages for internet-challenged artists as well as some pretty good "how-to-draw" lessons.

    Want to know more (like I've actually told you anything!) about me? Take a look at my Homepage as well! Yes, you click on the little picture . . . good boy . . .
    You can also email me (chiutech@mit.edu), or even better yet, you can finger me to see if my computer is up and then talk to me.
