I have been working for Evite’s invitation design since Nov 2010 and I love it. I get all the freedom to do illustrations and graphic design on any theme they assigned. The art director usually approves my design right away or only asks for minor tweaks. So I have been experimenting different styles on different themes and he has no problem with it :P and I just got the second assignment contract to sign!
They are asking me to do more styles like hand-drawn illustrations rather than just doing typography with text… so I just played with it… )

I keep forgetting to post my neopets (Nickelodeon Virtual World) works that I did when I was doing internship at the end of 2009. (Since these were online in 2010 so I can include them in my portfolio XD)
Here are some of the isometric furnitures

Here are my recent test paintings I did for Disney Publishing.
I have gained their permissions to include these in my portfolio :)
Although it’s in cute animation style but I still need to pay attention on all the reflections…. just remind me of our ex-department chair Scott Robertson’s vis com class @.@ man those details were very time consuming!!!!! (I am so glad that it doesn't need to be photo real...)
I did have fun doing them though ~ XD

I spent longer time on the first one (1.5~2hrs) ~ I did it slow since it's my first traditional medium painting for the past.... 3+ yrs?
Didn't spend much time on the 2nd one (less than 1 hr) ..so I think this one is just ok ~:P

Hi guys ~ sorry for the late update.
Finally I graduated from Art Center!!!! (After…switching majors from graphic design → illustration → Entertainment Arts → Entertainment Design…. what a journey!!!!)
Usually in our Entertainment Design department, most students do visual development projects in sci-fi and featured film style, but I really wanted to do something different. Something I enjoy doing too! So I picked the Mazu project.
My teacher Christian Scheurer said my style is fresh and unique for Ent Design department. I was reaaaally happy to hear that ^^ (coz I wasn’t really sure if doing a complete different style than everybody else was the right thing to do or not…)
Below is my project poster (inspired by Tibetan Thangka). You may have seen my older version in my blog but this is the finalized one. :) I actually changed all the characters’ look and also refined the background.
and the location
I like this location painting a lot! This is done after researching and referencing traditional Chinese paintings and it’s compositions. I got a lot of good feedbacks on this painting at the show too :)
I actually did some few sec animated loop characters and scenes… will post them later.
