“I’m an illustrator from Guangzhou, China currently working out of the UK. I love to draw my own universe, creating my own weird characters and ‘unreality’. The expressive faces of my anthropomorphic individuals enhance the funny side of normal happenings. Screen-printing and risograph are essential methods during my working process.

Having previously designed two-dimensional products such as zines, comics, posters, cards and book covers, I’m now moving towards wearable outputs. Experimental compositions, layouts, textures, and collages are leading to colourful, humourous pattern repeats. These form the basis of my branding development.
