Statement

I was born and raised in Xi’an, China. I came to America when I was 15 and completed my high school and BFA degree here. During my junior year, I also participated in an exchange program in Japan and lived there for half a year. As an illustrator from Asia, I hope my art could convey these beautiful cultures to the world.

For my thesis project, I created a set of postcards about my hometown. The scene depicts the two characters traveling and exploring in my hometown, so the audience can also get to see these famous spots with them. My character design is inspired by traditional Chinese dragon and lion dance elements, I always like the concept of combining traditional and modern elements. This set of illustrations depicts the iconic building in my hometown, delicious local snacks, relaxing temple courtyards, and the most spectacular world heritage sites. I hope you enjoy my art and maybe come to visit my city someday.
