Chan Is Missing

I really like this film. I saw it today, and it's now one of my favorite movies. The film takes place mostly around 1980s SF's Chinatown, specifically Grant Ave. Two Asian-American cab drivers find themselves embroiled in a mystery when a friend of theirs, Chan, disappears with their money--but do they really know who Chan is?

Here is a bit of the movie.

The trailer for this film is as elusive as Chan himself, so this is the next best thing.

Scraps of illustration board, pen, pencil, yellow highlighter.

Spot and frontspiece illustration for Roald Dahl's short story Skin. These are the most flat, most abstract pieces I've ever done for illustration. I seem to be going in this direction, and I don't know what I think about that yet. Maybe I should see how it goes...although it doesn't "feel" like me at the moment.

Final Illustration #9

Book cover project, The Old Man and the Sea. I'm getting there, my professor says--the only things that really need fixing are the shakiness of the lines here and there, and that annoying tangent where the boat is floating right above the marlin's fin.
