CHINATOWN

This collection of comics takes an emotional, historical, social and psychological trip through Sydney's historic Chinatown district. The stories spotlight a seldom-exposed side of the neighbourhood, experienced by those who live and work in the area and hidden to visitors behind tourist attractions. These stories of childhood, business, local clubs, student life and migration encompass a wide breadth of tones and weight – from anecdotes of the everyday and slice of life observations to the significant, life changing, whimsical, frustrating, and poignant.

Developed with the support of 4A Center for Contemporary Asian Art.
Launched at the Sydney Opera House for Graphic Festival.
'Double Dragon Kung Fu Academy' was exhibited in the Society of Illustrators 54 Sequential Art Annual.
