PRESS | Top Illustrators in China
Hello, I draw.
2) Why did you learn the art of painting initially? Why did you choose to draw illustration as your career?
I simply like drawing every day. Looking back now, the blackboard news (regular news notice) that I was responsible for the hard work when I was in school, accidentally developed my sense and ability for typeset and illustrations; later I had my column in the newspaper; in university I studied animation and multimedia, and I have always had a passion for clothing and style, so unconsciously stepped into the intersection of illustration and fashion.
The so-called freedom is relative, my dear. Beauty is in every profession if we take them seriously, I guess? As for the awesomeness... I don't know, but I know that if the heart is not firm enough, it is easy to be f--ked... (Oups). I feel that to be a good illustrator, not only the basic skills of painting must be excellent, physical strength, energy, originality and self-management skills need to be constantly improved.
Alas! Look! The style and character have been condensed in interlaced lines and flowing colors!
Not emotional enough? :P
Both. Everyone's growth path is different, so are their worldviews.
Style should be a concrete representation of your own worldview. (Of course, it is a different matter to "learn" the excessive style of others, did I say "copy" ?)
Life, the factors you listed are also parts of life. Life sculpts the heart, and the picture presents the world seen inside.
7) To be honest, what does the deadline mean for you?
Professional ethics and sense of responsibility. Only when you hand in your homework on time will there be little red flowers awarded (in China, teachers award kids with little red flowers when they behave well or have good notes) ! You know. :)
Printed in your heart.
The carrier is short-lived, the connotation is long-lasting, isn't it?
10) What is the biggest gain this year? Both in business and life.
Fortunately, I can continue to cooperate with the first-line media and brands in China and internationally, and continue to learn.
Besides, the Montréal Life sketch column in the Montreal Métro newspaper (#CalepinBen) has also been serialized for the first anniversary, and has been welcomed by many readers.
Among them, I have also met a lot of people who I've never met but will continue this amazing journey.
In 2007, Japan’s Asahi TV station broadcast a long drama about the life of my favourit Chinese singer Teresa Teng. It was delighted to draw the classic looks of her different period.
所谓自由都是相对滴，亲。任何职业认真对待都会产生美感吧？至于屌...... 内心不够坚定的话，倒是很容易被人屌... 话说，这个字不会被屏蔽么？个人觉得，要想成为好的插画师，不仅绘画的基本功要过硬，体力，精力，原创力和自我经营能力都需要不断磨砺。
