   Ploy gained most of her fans thru her roles on Thai Lakorns (ละคร = nighttime TV dramas). 

   Unlike the majority of Daras (ดารา = Thai stars) who only play Nang-ek (นางเอก = heroine), Ploy has also played her share of villains.

   Usually Lakorns are compared to soap operas or their nighttime equivalent (Dynasty, Melrose Place, OC, etc), because of their over the top emotional confrontations & cliched plot devices (evil twins, rich vs. poor, amnesia, etc).

   However, Thai Lakorns have closed story lines & are closer to mini-series usually airing 2ice/week over 2 - 3 months.

The Dream
   Probably MJ's most famous work, I came across this on Deviant Art around 2009 & I was an instant fan. The level of intricate detail draws ur eye & holds ur gaze as U continue to examine the figure.

   I love the abstraction & accent of color in the hand capturing motion or another angle, giving a subtle 'shout out' back at Picasso & Cubism.
Korean artist Minjae Lee aka Greno reviewed by Yellowmenace
Devon Aoki
This is one of MJ's more recent works & I wonder if Ms. Aoki has seen this & if so, what was her reaction.
Korean artist Minjae Lee aka Greno reviewed by Yellowmenace
Commission
   We've heard countless lovers, poets & songwriters describe the feeling of being lost or absorbed by physical beauty. What MJ does so successfully is make this notion concrete via the painstaking & thoughtful detail laid upon these women's bodies. We are invited to look, look for a long time, & look closely.

VID: Vice Japan – Kenbo Yakuza Musician

8 fingered Kenbo w/ Eng subs
8 Fingered Kenbo - Vice Japan - http://www.vice.com/jp
 Kenbo is a local celebrity in Okinawa.
8 Fingered Kenbo - Vice Japan - http://www.vice.com/jp
   Kenbo wasn't always the smiling, good natured Buddha-like character he is today. For eight years he was a member of one of Japan's Yakuza syndicates. His two missing pinky fingers reveal a troubled past consisting of alcohol, drug abuse, fights, and gambling.
 
   After getting ex-communicated from his Yakuza clan, he eventually turned his life around with the help of his love for Okinawan music - the Sanshin in particular, which is like a banjo with three strings.

She emerges from her cocoon of bandages at an elite plastic surgery clinic & rapidly rises to be THE ‘IT’ face in Japan.
Trouble, of course must find her in the form of debt to her shady & controlling manager for all her costly operations and small black marks appearing on her skin, a result of the experimental, illegal & all too temporary modifications performed by the clinic.

ほんの冗談で生まれただけなのに Just Kidding by Hirata Yodom

Hirata Yodom (平田澱) is a Japanese painter working mainly in acrylics.
I couldn’t find anymore info on him, but this is from the bio on his website: (I think Google translate was unable to accurately capture his sentiments)
Delusion painter.
When you close the eye strongly suffer from one knee in the corner of the room, miniature garden Oshii love to come along on the back of the eyelids, I have a picture in a variety of forms to be born in it.

“妄想絵描き。
部屋の片隅でひとり膝を抱えて強く眼を閉じると、瞼の裏に出来上がる愛おしい箱庭、 その中で生まれるいろいろな形を絵にしている。主にアクリル絵の具を使用。”
