1200Posters SOLD OUT!

Thank you everyone for your support!:D

I Speak AN English

I am starting a personal quickie series called" I Speak AN English".
Even though I have been in the State for 4 years but there are still many slangs I don't know. And I often misunderstand them into something weird. This project is an attempt to record this "miscommunication". ..Hope you will enjoy it and fire more slangs at me!

Hello all, the poster I did for 1200Posters project is released TODAY!
1200 Posters is an experiment in community, conversation and collaboration. Using text from Margaret Wheatley’s “Turning to One Another,” a rotating team of artists and designers will make one poster every month for a year. Each poster will be handmade and sold in editions of 100 with all proceeds going to the artists that created them.
The quote that my poster is based off is" Notice what you care about, assume many others share your dream."

I really believe in artist community and was very excited when I was invited to participate in this project. There's a Chinese saying: "it takes hardwork, talent, and luck to be successful". I believe having good relationships with people makes up a large part of the "luck". Since graduating in 2010, I've been trying to find a place in the highly competitive editorial illustration industry. In the limited few months of my career, I was very lucky to encounter and be helped out by a lot of great people. Some gave me constructive criticisms, some extended job opportunities, some shared their experiences and business tactics with me, some inspired me, and some helped me get back on my feet when times were hard. I can't possibly imagine where I would be without all these people. Be genuine to people; gratefully receive generous help and help generously, I think that's what community is for me.

Get a limited 100 edition archival giclee print(13"X17") and support the artist community for super friendly price- $20!

Happy Thursday

Yesterday was a happy Thursday for me.
First, I got a call from Marc Kauffman, AD of Runner's World magazine, to do a piece for their April issue. I have always been a fan of the illustrations in Runner's World, so it's really cool to be working with them.
Second, I have 4 pieces in the Society of Illustrator LA west 49 competitions!
By the way, Society of Illustrator NY "Sequential and uncommissioned show" award ceremony is tonight at SOI128, 6pm, see you there!
