Title : “Arale Chan”
With Gucha Gucha, I'm honoured to have the chance to recreate the Japanese popular culture that I grew up with. For this series, I chose to focus on Arale from Dr Slump.
While in the original story Arale was a droid, I wanted to explore the idea of humanizing Arale and allowing her to age like a normal person. In my mind only her looks have changed, but she still remains the wide-eyed, curious girl that gets into goofy scrapes with her bizarre friends.
The method for this artwork is traditional drawing on paper using a brush pen, it is special to me because when I started watching Dr. Slump it was also around the time I first got my hands on pencil and paper.
