01 Keep on Keeping On
I am reading Experimental Jetset’s Statement and Counter-Statement lately and their opinion on not being afraid of making mistakes, and correcting them in personal projects really inspires my own work. Here’s a poster highlighting Samuel Beckett’s quote (mentioned in the book) about viewing “failure” in another perspective. Thank you Blaze Type for featuring my poster design on your site.
02 Library project (on-going): Arsene Schrauwen, by Olivier Schrauwen, is a graphic novel I found in the Vera List Library. I designed two posters to reflect the hilarious content of the novel.

04 Mahjong Gif series
Chinese Mahjong—5 looping gifs
In attempt to experiment with the looping gifs and raising awareness of Mahjong, a traditional Asian gambling game that is commonly played by four players, I illustrated and animated five gifs. The game is usually played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Mahjong is a game of strategy, calculation and involves a degree of chance. The gifs highlighted the moment of Shuffle, Pong and Reset.
Amazed by the visual patterns and graphic aesthetics of Mahjong tiles, it is a unique process of reviving this ancient game that originated from Qing dynasty (1644-1912).
06 In search for Russian's lost gold Hand-drawn / Animated
A map illustration featured in BBC's fascinating piece about searching for Russian tsar Nicolas II’s lost gold. Incorporating the railroad track, the map shows the train route through Siberia. To avoid designing a kitchy and pirate map, I researched a bit about the typography that are used in old-timey maps.
08 Sneak preview of the 2017 Halloween Week Hand-drawn / Animated
Theses are the editorial commissions for BBC Travel about sneak preview of the 2017 Halloween Week. The GIFs closely tie to the featured journals, Garlic cuisine roots, the unluckiest village in Italy, flaming drinks, etc.
