The Gulf is a multimedia comic that includes drawings, music and animation. It's inspired by my experiences and my family’s stories about life in Vietnam. It is released digitally on iBooks as individual chapters (10 planned). The title of The Gulf refers to the physical location of the gulf coast of Florida, where I grew up, as well as the idea of division: between adulthood & childhood, parent & child, Vietnamese & American identity. I update this page regularly with drawings, photos, music & videos!
Chapters 1 & 2 were made possible by an artist fellowship grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Chapter 3 was completed in 2014 while I was a Strathmore Fine Artist in Residence.
