This year four other illustrators and I were commissioned by Zejian Shen to illustrate a piece of the Ramayana in accordion-comic form. This work was made to accompany the Rama Epic exhibition, which will be at the Asian Art museum from October 21. I'm white, and they let me work on this piece. Which is pretty cool. And I think it's not just cool, but okay because the Rama Epic is full of archetypes and myths that we can all relate to. The museum wants everyone to come see the show and see themselves.
They gave me Ravana's abduction of Sita. I like seeing Ravana as a tech prince with many emoji faces. And San Francisco is a lot like Lanka. Very beautiful, and full of demons.
