At Urban-FairyTales.com, it is believed that the charm of fairy tales lies not in their escapist nature, but the confrontational. Through allegories and storytelling, artist Shih-Mu Dino Pai aims not merely to entertain his readers, but to inform, provoke, and connect to them. Urban-FairyTales.com is a documentation of Dino’s journey as he engages the world around him with his art and comics. We hope you enjoy the ride!


Children’s art teacher by day, independent artist by night, Shih-Mu Dino Pai currently resides in Vancouver, Canada. Things you may not know about Dino: his favourite ice cream flavour is bubblegum, and he makes a mean balloon puppy!
