GCIA Silvers Medals and Commarts Selected!

I was greatly honored to be awarded 2 Silver medals and one Judges' Picks award from the Second Greater China Illustration Awards - an award covering Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and Mainland China. It's my first time winning a professional award in Hong Kong and it really means a lot to be recognized by my own country! Thank you Society of Illustrators Hong Kong and all the judges. 

Also, big big THANKS to these great people, I wouldn't be who I am today without you guys-
-My secondary school art teacher Eileen Tsang who steered me back to art when I almost gave it up. 
-My RISD portfolio teacher Chris Buzelli who taught me everything I know now being an illustrator and a decent person.
-My very supportive parents who could have bought a couple Ferrari but instead sent me to art school.
-And all my mentors, friends and followers! 

Bringing home these lovely trophies designed and hand made by famous HK designer Kenny Wong was the best part!!

Congrats to all the winners of the Judges' Pick Award.
