By Hari & Deepti, each of these incredible hand-cut paper diorama’s has a delicate LED light inside it to illuminate the scene perfectly, has been crafted by the artist couple. The depth and detail of each story is transformed by that tiny glowing light.

The snapseed over-saturated version. You be the judge.

another experiment in digital painting modeled on a sktchy app artist…This version hasn’t been tweaked in snapseed. The one posted in the app was. I think I over-saturated it, so here’s the original version.

Here’s a panel for a comic I’m probably going to abandon. The comic was just a slice-of-life piece about the sound of trains in the night. But I got bored with it. This panel was oodles better than the other panels I drew, so I was also unsatisfied with the comic for that reason. I didn’t want to go redraw panels for a story I no longer cared about. So, there’s this. I might return to it someday.

Professor goat is a real kidder.
I’ve started making daily goat doodles on Instagram and this is my fave so far. I won’t apologize for the cheesy goat pun. Drawn with pencil on paper and digitally colored in procreate app.

I was really excited being contacted to do the new IMAX FANFIX of Divergent, a new movie based on the international best seller of the same title by Veronica Roth. Check out the gif of the process above ( I do hope it loads properly!)
I love the story, especially how Tris and other faction transfers break out of their social labels and confinements to pursue truth, dreams and ambition. This resonates with me as Art was not considered a very proper/respected career choice in Chinese society and there was much voice of opposition from my family when I decided to attend art school. I think the courageous, yet possibly fatal, jump from a moving train is the perfect moment to represent determination.
I wanted to capture the scene of Tris and Four jumping off a moving train as it not only represents the courage required to become a Dauntless, it also symbolized the leap from their old faction and life, a decision they cannot go back on. The three birds soaring above were inspired by Tris’s collar bone tattoo, which symbolized the three family members she left behind.
The poster has been getting some love by USAToday and LATimes!
Big thanks to Debi Struzan, Katie Tibbs, Desirae Jones, my agent Morgan Gaynin. Inc and all the nice people at Summit!
IMAX and Summit has been kind enough to send me 10 pairs of poster + movie tickets. Reblog for a chance to win a free set!

Portrait of a sphynx cat I did on the sktchy app. Used a watercolor pencil (first time experimenting with that), watercolor, and Bristol paper.
