Emily Wong

It turns out Emily Wong (Ninja vs Penguin) is obsessed with hair! Whenever she’s feeling really stressed she busts out the graphite – haha I love it. The hair in this first drawing actually belongs to Ophelia Chong, small world!

    Hey Ophelia!

    Even your hair is famous now? What about your “capillatus pubertas”. Will those be immortalized too? Some previous boyfriend must have a photograph of it somewhere……
