In the summer of 2009, I was just graduated from SVA undergrad program, I got an e-mail titled 'Illustrate for us?' from Briar. It was my VERY first time editorial illustration job, and I'd never expected someone was going to hire me from few promo cards that I randomly sent out. At that time, my mom was came over to my NYC apt, and can't forget the time I was working on the series. The first start was good and the series are one of my favorite illustrations until now! :)
Very early works from the Stranger and the Phoenix from 2012 and early 2013!
