A Younger Simon

Here’s a younger, college-era Simon Kuai. His modern design is the one lounging on top of the image. His milder design and hair show he’s experimenting with fashion but not settling on anything yet. I wanted to get across the idea that he’s a dandy with refined tastes, but also kind of trashy, hence the open chest and puka shell necklace. I imagine those clothes are expensive, and that Simon’s growing his hair out. There’s also another kiss scene!


J. Shen or "Micey" is a Junior at Umich. She loves character design and telling stories and dabbles in making her own comics. Sketchbook Smashing is an attempt to chronicle her process in designing characters. From first concepts, hairstyle and outfit changes, or even complete shifts in design. She also hopes to map out how her own art style changes throughout the year. Her website is https://wallmouseart.weebly.com Her art Tumblr is https://wallmouse.tumblr.com
