Four in Love


What is love, ideally, for you? Is it a red string, with someone at the other end waiting for you? Or maybe like a neon lamp late at night, a fantasy? Perhaps it’s the internet world, so close yet so distant? Crystal Kung uses the colors of joy, haze, heartbreak, and relief to illustrate love, and to describe those searching for it.

Legends of Assassins (2017 New Edition)


#Ink-wash techniques #Assassins
Based on the “Biographies of Assassins” from the Han-dynasty historian Sima Qian’s Records of the Grand Historian, this book tells the stories of the noted assassins Cao Mu, Yu Rang, Zhuan Zhu, Nie Zheng and Jing Ke of China’s Eastern Zhou dynasty. Working from his strong sense of humanity, Chen Uen gives his own interpretation of the original work’s tragic tone. He transforms Sima Qian’s elegant prose into rich images using ink-wash techniques giving the stories a discordant tension for a new age. The sheer force of the visuals are a perfect match for the assassins preparing themselves for violent death.

Sometimes in the City


#Urban Culture
There is no dialogue and no traditional storyline. Each chapter is a full single page of illustration, divided into between 3 and 9 frames, telling a story of city life, drawn as if snapped by a camera in sequence from a fixed position. These stories are moments, vignettes just seconds in length. The illustrations and accompanying text descriptions evoke a wide range of emotions and experiences, and constitute a fresh, unconventional comic book reading experience.
