The Animals Resistance illustration series was conceived in 2011 with the basic concept revolving around the relationship between humans and animals. Humans have subjected helpless animals to abuse, abandonment, animal testing and many other atrocities. For a long time, these animals were placed under such tremendous pressure and suffering that they have begun to evolve and develop human-like intelligence and personality. United, they gathered together to resist against humanity’s brutality. Amidst their struggle, some humans and animals began to form an unlikely friendship.
Tommy hopes that through his illustrations we can highlight the issues surrounding over-hunting of animals, land development and deforestation and even inhumane animal testing in the medical industry. Perhaps his art is able to evoke certain emotions in the viewers that it might inspire them to actively make a change in their lifestyle to discourage such practices in the industry.
This particular style of design and humor have attracted many corporations and government agencies around the world and is very much favored by the Hong Kong art market. In fact, Tommy’s works won numerous awards in countries like Hong Kong, Italy, Holland, and his works were even included in a New Zealand publication.
