Just like the Cinderalla art show last year, I and Gallery Nucleus have decided to do another show with original pages from Hansel & Gretel. Please note that the show was first scheduled to open on August 4th but now it has been pushed back to AUGUST 18TH.
Many of the original pages from the book will be on display and available for purchase. I'm now working hard retouching all the pages. When I made the book in 2000, I had to make all the drawings much simpler than usual to make it possible to color them all on computer in a very short period of time. They look ok in color but look a little too blank as black and white. So I decided to add a lot of details to make them look good as art pieces. Please see the before&after images below to see what I'm doing. It's a lot of work but also fun to revive old artworks. I'm planning to keep posting more before&after images on my Twitter page so please check it out here.
There will also be new prints and T-shirt available. The gallery is having raffle at the opening and I'll be there signing my books etc. Please visit the official event site for more info.
