"The Birth of Steven"9.5 in. x 7.5 in.Watercolor and Gouache

One of three pieces I painted for the Steven Universe | Adventure Time show at Gallery Nucleus.  This is my favorite out of all three I submitted and I feel is my best work to date.
"The Birth of Steven" is about the Gems coping with the loss of Rose Quartz that came with Steven’s birth.  It depicts the Gems’ raw emotion in both their sorrow over Rose leaving them and in the deep love they share for Steven, which brings them closer together.  I aimed to portray each Gem’s grief with slight differences, Pearl being the most choked up with a flushed face and the most tears, Garnet letting only one tear fall, and Amethyst trying to hold hers back.  I was meticulous with the details in this piece, from each ringlet in Rose’s hair to the tears on each Gem.

"The Person You Are Together"13.5 in. x 10.5 in.Watercolor and Gouache

The first of three pieces I painted for the Steven Universe | Adventure Time show at Gallery Nucleus.
"The Person You Are Together" depicts my favorite relationship in the series to explore, Amethyst and Pearl’s.  I love Opal as a character, she is gorgeous, powerful, and still cares greatly for Steven.  But I also love that she comes from an amalgam of Pearl and Amethyst, reflecting how something so beautiful can come from their bond.  But, this can only happen once they are able to stop fighting and see past each other’s differences, coming together in a harmonious, yet delicate, balance.

Sofaer’s Building, built in 1906, once was one of city’s best addresses. Isaac Sofaer was a Baghdadi Jew who had come to Rangoon as a boy. He went on to become a successful importer and built this imposing art nouveau building on Pansodan Street. Tenants included news agency Reuters, insurance and financial companies as well as fine liquor and commodity purveyors. Today, Sofaer’s Building still retains a diverse pool of tenants, although it has visibly deteriorated from its early days. On the ground floor, along Merchant Street, a new Japanese restaurant (Gekkô) has opened, designed by SPINE Architects. The second and third floor in the back are occupied by a guest house. In the hallway of the second floor between the staircases and in front of the courtyard is a makeshift tea house. The elevator shaft there is cluttered with debris. Besides the Lokanat Galleries, there are a few offices and residential units, some of which appear squatted. The tower atop the four-storey building features a makeshift verandah that the resident appears to have built for himself.
