"Lately I’ve been incorporating a lot of writing into my process, I’ll basically write up a concept or premise for who the characters are and what they’re doing. Next I’ll try to come up with character designs for them if I’m not reusing ones that I’ve previously designed, then I’ll sketch them out into a composition that I’m happy with. With this particular piece I did all my sketches and color comps digitally in Photoshop, afterwards I transfer the sketch onto my canvas or board and then start painting!

This piece was supposed to be based around the theme of “Zombies” and I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed and burnt out lately with work/life in general. With that, I became incredibly exhausted running only on fumes. I felt as if I myself had been bitten and infected by a zombie. I momentarily lost my happy outlook on life and became annoyed at anybody who projected happiness toward me. I felt as if I was being surrounded by fake cheerful idiots. So with this piece, I attempted to cheer myself back up by destroying their happiness. It worked." - David Chung

ABOUT David Chung:
David “The Chung!!” Chung’s relatable body of work revolves around the recognition and acceptance of ourselves and our complex human emotions. Occasionally placed in unfortunate and/or awkward scenarios, The Chung!!’s colorful and expressive menagerie of characters are a study of his own personal day to day life. Packed with humor and heart, his work helps remind us to stop taking life so seriously and take a moment to step back and laugh at what is essentially ourselves.

Although born in Albany, New York, David spent the majority of his early childhood in Hong Kong and Taiwan. The remainder of his youth was spent in Upstate New York where he graduated from high school. After attending the University at Buffalo for 2 years, he eventually transferred and graduated from the College for Creative Studies (Detroit, MI) as an illustration major in 2006. Currently residing in Los Angeles with his wife and dog, David’s work has been featured in galleries around the world. During the day, when he isn’t painting or working on designer toys, David works in the animation industry as a designer. He has worked on shows such as “Futurama”, “Robot and Monster”, "Clarence", "Regular Show" and “Sanjay and Craig.”
