Artist: Michael C. Hsiung

September 9, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

Bearded mermen, horned creatures and bears, oh my! The world created by the hand of Michael C. Hsiung is wonderfully skewed and filled with an odd assortment of mythical creatures. Each piece is paired with an equally charming (and sometimes lengthy) title, for example the last piece on the left: On the lesser known labors of Sir Anthony of Tuscany and how the exodus of the Lithuanian bears began counters the piece on the bottom right: On the Lithuanian bear’s revenge against the sons of Sir Anthony of Tuscany. And yes, he finds drawing hair to be therapeutic.

    the “plumpness” of his characters are whimsical. the two drawings featured in with the color scenes seem not the least bit out of the ordinary.
