tribute to Yeong-shin Ma's ARTIST

I just read Yeong-shin Ma's comic Artist! It's rare to see a story like this about artists in their 40s who aren't super-successful and I liked how unflinching it was about their egos and perspectives on the world. It felt very real and I kept wondering how much of it was autobiographical or based on people he knows. I rarely do fan art but for some reason I was compelled to do this little group walk cycle. I included Ha Seya along with the main trio because she stole the scene every time she appeared. The comic is out in English from Drawn & Quarterly and I recommend checking it out! Next I gotta read Ma's other comic Moms.
