Last week, I had an incredible opportunity giving a talk at Apple's new Brooklyn store as part of their Today At Apple event. I shared my journey as a fashion illustrator who came from a small town in China, had a dream becoming a fashion artist to pursuing and studying it at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, till now resident in Houston and work as a full-time fashion illustrator. In addition, I demonstrated how to sketch fashion on IPad Pro with Apple Pencil using an app called Procreate. I really appreciate Apple gave me the chance to share my story. Many of inspiring artists who followed me on Instagram joined me at the event. I LOVE seeing them felt inspired and encouraged to pursue what they desired to do! And It also a huge motivation to me to continuing drawing, painting, sharing with the world every day!

I had a wonderful time live-sketch guests at Maybelline New York booth at BeautyCon Festival this past May. It is a festival which brings the biggest content creators, celebrities, brands, and fans together to celebrate beauty, self-expression and staying true to themselves. Maybelline NY team did an amazing job on the display, it contained six subway stations, in my station which was called Concrete Jungle, I customize sketch for the guests as the brand debut its new eye palate-City Mini.
I was totally blown away by how hugely influential this festival was, so many people from everywhere, some even from Europe! They came together to learn the most trendy make-up techniques, meet YouTubers, Instagram influencers that inspire them daily and visit booth from their favorite brands!
My dear friend, fashion stylist Patty was there with me, I could not thank enough how awesome she was!
It was so much fun and eye opening experience. THANK YOU to my Maybelline New York family!

Hi my friends,
I am so excited to announce I will be at Surtex this may 22nd 1-3pm to live sketch guests who come to the show ;-) This is my first year as a signed licensing artist with my agent Jewel Branding
Stop by if you are coming to the Surtex show or NSS, I would love to meet you and show you my freshest artworks for licensing and live sketch you ;-).
A little background about SURTEX, it is the global B2B marketplace for sourcing original art & design—where artists, art agents, designers, licensors, art agencies and global design studios connect with manufacturers and retailers to create the next best-selling products in every category imaginable. Wall coverings, patterns, decorative accessories, bed linens, stationery, giftware, apparel and so much more…if it’s any product with a surface or textile design of any kind, there’s a good chance it originated at SURTEX.
New Updates, I had great expericence at Surtex and NSS just a couple weeks ago, I had illustrated many potential liensors and got inspired by many talented artists and designers!
