What I draw

I specialise in digital vector artwork in anime or kawaii style.

Growing up, I enjoyed drawing cute and pretty female characters, but have since been inspired by the weird and wonderful character designs of manga artist Eiichiro Oda. Commission me for anime cel-shaded artwork or paper-themed “storybook” chibis!

I’m having lots of fun experimenting and would like to share my original character designs and fan art (presented as vector art, adoptables and model sheets). Check out my take on classic fairy tale characters!

Some sources of inspiration

One Piece anime Poyo Poyo anime HoneyWorks
One Piece Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki HoneyWorks

Beyblade anime My Little Pony

What I write

I studied Creative Writing for three years and love writing fantasy fiction.

Having taken a Children’s Literature class at university and bought many books on the subject, I want to share what I know about classic fairy tales. Fairy Bat Tales is a blog that explores the fascinating origins and colourful characters of Fairyland.

How I made it here

In 2012, the UK Federation of Chinese Schools gave me a chance to draw professionally. Not long after, the real world went dark. I was at my brother’s hospital bed six days a week, working the family business two nights a week and illustrating seven days a week.

The experience made me see writing and drawing differently. I wouldn’t be able to live without these two things. This road is back-breaking, but I'm meeting kind and talented, coming across exciting challenges and, most importantly, my brother is better. Keep an eye on my progress and subscribe!
