🌱I have launched my second Kickstarter Project - Milk Carton Collection Project in July 2021.
🌱I have successfully launched my first Kickstarter Project - Cherry Blossom Enamel Pin project in May 2021.
🌱After failing many design interviews, I have landed an entry-level designer role at Mooc Creative in October 2020.
🌱I finally decided to keep doing anime art as a convention artist in September 2020. 😍I have launched a headquarter of my online shop in January 2021.
🌱I took part-time commission at Ecosolver as a marketing graphic designer, so I have gained more social media design skills, especially for Instagram and Facebook.
🌱I was volunteering at MySoulTeam as a UX designer and researcher, so I have gained more understandings on UX designer's daily routine.
🌱I joined a virtual Hackathon named Cooperathon that is based in Montreal. I have learned collaborative product design experience in October 2020.
🌱I did one-year art store hiatus from June 2019 to September 2020.; I was actually seriously thinking about if I should continue it. 😅
🌱I have landed a design internship and have successfully completed it in 2019 summer. I also went to sell my anime art in IFF Toronto (International Fan Festival Toronto) in 2019. 😉 I was really depressed, because I did not make big sales.😔
🌱From 2016 to 2019, I worked as an art instructor for kids and teens in Diana Art School located in Markham, Ontario. I was good at demonstrating my drawing and painting skills; I was also a good communicator with younger generation.
🌱 Of course, I had restaurant working experience. I worked at Eggsmart near my home as a waitressing when I was a teen.
🌱I enrolled a Game Art program at George Brown College, but I thought I am only interested in art side, not coding side, so I quitted after I finished general classes. Although in 2021, I do have few game companies asking me to join them as a game UI artist, it was very struggling to find a game intern job when my skills were crappy in 2015.
🌱I have completed a Bachelor of Design at Ocad (Ontario College of Art and Design University) from 2016 to 2020 and I strongly believe my art skills are improving a lot during 4-year art education. After I have completed my 4-year education, I am super excited to open a new canvas of my life.
🌱If you are interested in my last year's painting at Ocad. Please click the Graduation Painting link. (Spoiler: I do not like my last year art. 😫)
🌱 I loved digital painting and drawing fan art when I was 13. (THE EARLIEST ART I COULD FIND IN MY DRIVE) The earliest motivations were Disney animation, Japanese animes, and Hollywood movies. I was mostly self-teaching drawing and painting before I went to art school. I wish I can draw more cute anime boys and cute animals, so I am still happy to choose art major.
🌱I'm an INTJ person.
🌱I like spicy BBQ fish. 🐟
🌱I like drinking Roasted Milk Tea! 🧋
🌱I like watching animes and movies.
