Q
Are you planning on doing Rikki Tikki Tavi or Nagaina for your Jungle Book series? That was always my favorite part of the book, and would really love to see one of them in your style.
A

Funny you should ask! Rikki Tikki Tavi was my senior thesis project, and I illustrated the whole story with gouache paintings.

You can read the whole thing here.

Here are a few examples from the project:

Q
Ahhh yes, I doubt Anno will actually give much clarity himself, but with the evidence already given, the blood stain on the moon, Kaworu's coffins and his choice of words, the wounds on Asuka's suit and Eva, etc it's VERY hard to argue that it isn't! Oh, and you're most certainly welcome! I love good art uwu
A

You’re too kind :3

And yes, the evidence does seem to add up so far!



Q
That drawing you did of Shinji with Asuka's shadow is really beautiful~ (in its own messed up way, of course haha~) I just wanted to ask actually! I felt the exact same way about the series when I first finished everything myself. Did you see the evidence of the loop theory? After I had, I came to love the rebuilds much more than I first had.
A

Thank you so much! Yes, I did read lots of interesting interpretations after I finished the series, including the loop theory. I really love the idea! I think it would be a pretty awesome way to connect the original series with the rebuilds, but I wonder if Anno will ever be explicit about that connection. He seems to prefer leaving the interpretation up to the viewer (which is why, even after all these years, we are still getting so much mileage out of discussing it!)


Just finished Neon Genesis Evangelion, End of Evangelion, and all the rebuild movies in about two weeks. I feel like I need a long shower and an even longer nap…my brain is pretty much pudding at this point. 
I think I like the original show best, it was just brilliant (in a dirty, messed-up kind of way). Shinji and Asuka have such an…interesting relationship. 


Edit: a few people politely pointed out that it’s “dummkopf” not “dummkoph”…thank you! Clearly German is not a language I’m all that familiar with :)

A warm hello to my new followers (and old ones too). Thank you so much for taking an interest in my work! I hope you find something here you enjoy, and stay tuned for more projects coming soon!


Here is Raksha, or Mother Wolf, the penultimate piece in my Jungle Book series. I love Raksha because she represents the classic duality of motherhood: she is soft enough to adopt a hairless little human baby as one of her own, but fierce enough to defend him against Shere Khan when he comes to her den to kill Mowgli. Even mean old Shere Khan thinks twice before tangling with her. “Raksha” means protection, but it also relates to the “Rakshasi” or man-eating demons. Because Raksha has the power to banish evil from her den, I gave her the Karana mudra (“Gesture of Warding Off Evil”). The background pattern is influenced by the classic nazar battu type of charm.

I put in a little work on Raksha today. I still have a long way to go, but I’m starting to feel more confident.

Not gonna lie - I’m a little nervous to start on Raksha (Mother Wolf). She was the whole reason I started this “Jungle Book” series to begin with. I’ve been fantasizing about working on her for years, but I just don’t think I can do her justice. I only have 2 more Jungle Book pieces to go, so I’ve got to face the music now…
This is a quick sketch that I would like to use as inspiration for the final vector piece. It’s meant to be a sort of companion piece to “Khan”, as they face off against each other pretty early on in the story.

Here’s a quick little Chinese New Year card I made that I plan on sending out to friends (I meant to make some holiday cards this year but just got too dang busy). You can buy the cards yourself here.
