View my Resume

We love to escape. And both Written Word and Visual Art can easily provide that pleasure, even without the help of each other as have been proven throughout history, in Literature and the Arts. But why separate them? Ever since I was a child I fell in love with comics– the power of Storytelling through pictures and words in sequential manner. And if mastered, comics can easily transport the audience seamlessly in the world of the story and induce a unique fictive dream no other medium can provide. And this is what I am aiming for — the Mastery of Comics. To make the reader forget about the humdrum of everyday life and to break their hearts through beautiful visual storytelling.
