I have a tumblr:

  • "Ryo's World" is a series of collages I made while preparing to make work for The ETLE Universe.
  • Each one is made up of images of a single female character from manga series City Hunter. By placing dozens of images of each woman side-by-side, you can start to see them through the eyes of protagonist Ryo Saeba.
  • It's hard to keep from slotting them into archetypes- damsels, amazons, fan girls.
  • They range in size from 3x3" up to 8x10" and while I was working on them I developed an eye tic and got so wound up about it I got an eye exam.
  • What if something was wrong with my eyes! Nothing was wrong with my eyes. I just needed to get some sleep.
  • I later saw an acupuncturist who recommended I eat goji berries to help with vision strain. Goji berries are very expensive, compared to, say, raisins.
