Born in Los Angeles, CA.
Currently lives in San Francisco, CA.

From her As I Am Interview:
Asian bodies, particularly the bodies of Asian women, are almost always depicted as being for the visual and sexual consumption of others… I’m tired of dealing with those types of ideas that people have, and in some way, photography is my way of processing through all that.

From her Le Sigh Interview on what inspires her:
Conversations with other artists (or other people in general) - Talking to other people is a really big inspiration/influence. From conversations I’m having with people, sometimes they’ll ask me a question or they’ll say something I’d just sincerely never thought of, which prompts me to sometimes try my hand at other things. For example, my friend Elle Perez recently asked me why I’m so interested in photobooths, and nobody had ever asked me that before. After that, I thought about it more and decided I wanted to be a little more focused and intentional with photobooth work.

Someone tell me what these type of drawings are called please!!

me too I want someone to draw one for me

theyre so pretty

ive seen these before, they’re sketches of people’s faces that have been identified around the artist.. im guessing thse were done at a cafe? i believe these are also done without taking the pen of the piece of paper, (correct me if im wrong)but i absolutely love this style(:

they’re called contour drawings or alternatively blind contour drawings, where the artist blindly sketches without looking at the paper or lifting his or her pen/pencil

WE HAD TO DO THIS IN MY ART CLASS ITS NOT NEARLY AS FUN AS IT LOOKS UNLESS YOU HAVE A GOOD EYE

THESE ARE SUPER HARD
