Hi, I'm new to this group. I would like to share with you a video of the art from one of my picture books. I was inarticulate--bad morning--but the filming is very good and the color true.

I am a writer/illustrator of adult and children's books, fiction and nonfiction. I've been eyeing this group for a long time but haven't had much time to join in the talk. I came back from China in 1989 after the Tiananmen Massacre and vowed I would never waste the gift of expression, so I've been creating for nearly 20 years.

I am a founding author of is a new site for writers and readers. I hope you'll check out all the other authors there, too. And please join. It's a new site so it's evolving. The CEO, Ivory Madison, is a graphic novelist--as am I.

I'm wondering if anyone here has done stop action animation. I'm just beginning to learn and hope to put up some before too long. I would love to have help with stop action animation if someone here has experience.

Thank you and hope to continue the conversation here!

belleyang Redroom told me that your first link (belle-yang-monterey-museum-art) could not be found.

In the other two links, the videos worked for me but the audio did not. That is probably the fault of my browser although I have never before had trouble with a YouTube video.

Anyway, thanks for the links. Your biography is fascinating.

Xenchu--I just corrected it. Are you Chinese like or you just like a Chinese-sounding nickname?

I'm just a nickname. The name is actually a misspelling of the Japanese word zenchu. It is the name of the swordstroke given by the second to someone committing seppuku.

I adopted it because I liked the sound, it is short and I have a grim mind at times.

I tried the link and it worked fine except that once again I couldn't get audio. As I said before it is probably my browser and I will try all three on another browser so I can listen to them.

When I tried the videos with the Safari browser once again the video was fine but I had no audio. But this time I unplugged my earbuds and the sound was perfectly clear. So the fault was deficient equipment and no problem of your videos!

I just made this Youtube video of a graphic novel-in-progress. It was so much fun using iMovie and not very difficult.
