Sailor Pluto, also known as Setsuna, the guardian of time and also Sailor Chibiusa. Being in a lonely place, I figured she would feel more confident being free hence why her clothing is limited and free flowing but she is still burdened by the weight she has which is the guardian of time. Arrows are a theme to show the power of time travelling and there are also clock themes in her design. Her tiara also shows a half moon and half sun to show that she is of both day and night because time is always constant.
These are old pieces I did when I finally was confident enough to call myself an artist. This series I call the Emperor and King. These pieces celebrate the male body.
My redesign of Sailor Neptune, I wanted to have sea Goddess like qualities, so there are a lot of tear drop shaped items, and dangling/draping pieces that she wears. Her ribbons fan out to create a fin like texture.
My redesign of Sailor Chibiusa, I wanted her to have similar themes to Sailor Moons appearance, but a lot more cuter! I feel like I made her face a little mature but because I wanted to have a more young teenage Chibiusa!

Earlier this year, I collaborated with Mel Grecia Quimpo; a fashion designer from Aklan, Philippines.The theme was East asian beauty. What I loved about the catwalk is that there were a range of skin tones. I wanted to keep the designs simple and symbolic so I added flowers and animals.Here are images of the models wearing the dresses designed by Mel Grecia Quimpo and designs painted on by myself!This bomber jacket was worn by a male model.
I knew two people who were in love and who were separated by the sea, so they wanted to remember that feeling. As a gift I recreated the image I saw when I was with them on their last evening together. They watched over the sea on the Tangalan beach, Panay Island in the Philippines.I wanted to create a very romantic sky so I gave it a peach hue as if it was sunrise or sunset, showing that although this romance is a new beginning, it will soon end because they will soon have to part ways.
Its been 10 years since the release of Final fantasy 7 so I wanted to interpret the two beauties of Final Fantasy, Aerith and Tifa
Last year, I had gone to see Les Miserables in the theatre in Londons West End. Rachelle Ann Go had just finished her role as Gigi in Miss Saigon and with such a powerful and emotional voice I wanted to hear her sing “I dreamed a dream.” As usual, I was blown away and I just had to draw her as Fantine.
I wanted to show the two sides of Fantine, before and after she was struck by hard times and her sacrifice. I did this by ripping pieces of paper and sticking it onto the base of her drawing to show how she became a victim of exploitation. She did an amazing job as Gigi and Fantine and I’m happy to hear that she is coming back to London to be in Hamilton!
