His works are influenced by movies, games, comics, music, and television series. Splicing ideas, imagery, lyrics, and visual moods together forms his exquisite form of contemporary fusion. Lately, he created vintage posters of the booming television series, The Last of Us. The crossover concept in this poster represents the fusion of vintage visuals and the latest pop culture, illustrating Sam as the iconic superhero generated from the plot of the story.

More than that, he made various illustration series based on crossing reality and fiction. These projects initiate creative concepts that reference fictional characters with real-life personalities such as musicians, politicians, famous public figures, artists, and historical figures.

Take a look at this crossing concept art of David Bowie and Dr. Manhattan from The Watchmen! Absorbed the typography from the Watchmen comic and depicted Bowie's famous single "Life on Mars". Couldn't decide if he's David Bowie in blue or if he's just Dr. Manhattan himself, right?
